The 8th International Workshop on Dependable Many-Core Computing

(DMCC 2016)


As part of

The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) or

July 18 – July 22, 2016

Innsbruck, Austria

Submission Deadline: April 14, 2016 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters


Computing systems with a large number of processing units are increasingly common, both in the form of processors employing multiple execution cores (e.g., multi-core CPUs, GPUs), or computing clusters with a large number of nodes. These many-core architectures bring up new capabilities, opportunities, as well as challenges. As the number of cores increases, so does the probability to have faults, both due to hardware issues (e.g., physical defects introduced during fabrication), software problems (e.g., a single crashed process bringing down the whole computation) or communication issues in the network infrastructure.

This workshop focuses on software and/or hardware solutions to dependability and fault-tolerance in multi- and many-core systems.

The DMCC Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Dependable/Fault-Tolerant Many-Core Architectures

  • Power-Aware Many-Core Design

  • Dependable & Secure Many-Core Designs

  • Many-Core Development and Design Tools

  • Dependability and Fault Tolerance in Simulation

  • System-Level Many-Core Implementation

  • Many-Core Interconnect Technology

  • Many-Core System-On-Chip Development

  • Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs

  • Design for Testing

  • Hardware and Software Debug Facilities

  • Many-Core Programming and Optimization for Dependability

  • Application Partitioning and Load Balancing

  • Hypervisors and Virtual Machine Technology

  • Trusted and Untrusted Environments

  • Virtualization for Dependability

  • Dependability through Multi-Threading / Multi-Processing

  • Fault Detection Techniques

  • Fault-Tolerant Software Design

  • Fault-Tolerant Hardware Design

  • Fault-Tolerant HW/SW Co-Design

  • Modeling and Simulation of Dependable and Fault Tolerant Systems

  • Formal Techniques for Dependable Hardware/Software Design


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to dependable and resilient many-core computing systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the workshop paper submission EasyChair site at Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2016 conference to present the paper at the workshop.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
