Dear Colleague:

The First USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Parallelism (HotPar '09)
Program Committee would like to remind you that the deadline to
contribute to the refereed papers is quickly approaching. Paper titles
and abstracts are due October 17, 2008.

For more information and submission guidelines, please see
http://www.usenix.org/hotpar09/cfpb

HotPar '09 will bring together researchers and practitioners doing
innovative work in the area of parallel computing. Multicore and
multithreaded processors are the pervasive computing platform of the
future. This trend is driven by limits on energy consumption in computer
systems and the poor energy performance of conventional microprocessors.
Parallel architectures can potentially mitigate these problems, but this
new computer architecture will only be successful if languages, systems,
and applications can take advantage of parallel hardware. Navigating
this change will require new concurrency-friendly programming paradigms,
new methods of application design, new structures for system software,
and new models of interaction between applications, compilers, operating
systems, and hardware.

We request submissions of position papers that propose new directions
for research or products in these areas, advocate non-traditional
approaches to the problems engendered by parallelism, or potentially
generate controversy and discussion. We encourage submissions from
practitioners as well as from researchers. HotPar recognizes the broad
impact of multicore computing and seeks relevant contributions from all
fields, including application design, languages and compilers, systems,
and architecture. We particularly encourage contributions containing
highly original ideas that are likely to have a significant impact.

All papers will be available online to registered attendees prior to the
workshop and will be available online to everyone starting on March 30,
2009.

The First USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Parallelism
(HotPar'09) will be held March 30-31, 2009, in Berkeley, CA, USA.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!

On behalf of the HotPar'09 Program Committee,
