Call for Paper MCC 2017

The tenth Nordic Workshop on Multi-Core Computing (MCC2017) will be hosted at Uppsala University (Sweden) from November 30 - December 1, 2017. The objective of MCC is to bring together Nordic researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present and discuss recent work in the area of multi-core computing. The workshop is organized as an activity within the network Swedish Multicore Initiative.

The focus for this year's edition: Accelerators (Software-hardware co-design)
This year’s keynote speakers will focus on software-hardware co-designed solutions for
acceleration and we especially welcome submissions related to this area.

Scope of the workshop

The scope of the workshop is both hardware and software aspects of multi-core computing, including design and development as well as practical usage of systems. The list of interests includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Architecture of multi-core processors, GPUs, accelerators, heterogeneous systems, memory systems, interconnects and on-chip networks
  • Parallel programming models, languages, environments
  • Parallel algorithms and applications
  • Compiler optimizations and techniques for multi-core systems
  • Hardware/software design trade-offs in multi-core systems
  • Operating system, middleware, and run-time system support for multi-core systems
  • Correctness and performance analysis of parallel hardware and software
  • Tools and methods for development and evaluation of multi-core systems

Important Dates:

Full Paper Submission: September 29, 2017
Author Notification: October 20, 2017
Registration Deadline: November 20, 2017
Slides Submission: November 25, 2017
MCC Workshop: November 30 - December 1, 2017

Keynote speakers

  • Per Stenström, Chalmers University, Göteborg
  • Davide Rossi, University of Bologna, Italy
  • Johan Grönqvist, ARM, Lund


There are two types of papers eligible for submission. The first type is original research work and the second one refers to work already published in 2016 or later. Participants submitting original work are asked to send an electronic version of the paper that does not exceed four pages using the ACM proceedings format,, to The same URL is used should you want to present an already published paper as described above. In that case, you need to clearly specify that the paper is already published and where the paper has been published.


The program will offer a summary of recent and ongoing top-level research in the area of multicore. To accommodate a high number of talks and to allow time for interaction, MCC'17 has a new design!

Each session starts with lightning talks (5 minutes per paper) followed by a poster subsession (25 minutes) of the works presented in that session. Participants will have the chance to approach the authors of the papers they are interested in during the poster subsession, ask questions, and interact in smaller groups. Authors are expected to prepare a poster as support material for group interaction.
