The International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL) is an annual meeting of vendors, researchers and developers to promote the evolution and advancement of the OpenCL standard. The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in contributing to, and participating in the OpenCL community. IWOCL is the premier forum for the presentation and discussion of new designs, trends, algorithms, programming models, software, tools and ideas for OpenCL. Additionally, IWOCL provides a formal channel for community feedback to OpenCL promoters and contributors.
The 1st International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL) is planned for May 13-14, 2013. The meeting is tentatively to be held at the School of Computational Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Call for papers
We solicit the submission of unpublished technical papers detailing innovative, original research related to OpenCL.
All topics related to OpenCL are of interest, including OpenCL applications from any domain (e.g., scientific computing, video games, computer graphics, multimedia, information retrieval, optimization, text processing, data mining, finance, signal and image processing and numerical solvers), OpenCL performance analysis and modeling, OpenCL performance and correctness tools and proposed OpenCL extensions.
The theme of this year’s workshop is, “Portability and Performance”. IWOCL 2013 solicits submissions that highlight advances and techniques in achieving portably performant code implementations that leverage OpenCL. Some examples are code parameterizations that allow portable compile or run-time tuning for the target architecture, tools that expose important architectural features (e.g., synchronous width), and libraries, interfaces or abstractions that aid in the design and implementation of portably performant applications.
IWOCL will publish formal proceedings of the accepted papers in The ACM International Conference Series. Paper submissions should be limited to 10 pages and should use the ACM SIG Proceedings format. Papers should be submitted to our Microsoft Conference Management Tool (CMT) website.

The first day of IWOCL 2013 is a tutorial day. Through presentations and demos, current and prospective OpenCL users will have the opportunity to learn more about the OpenCL framework, as well being exposed to various activities in the OpenCL tools area.
The morning session will be devoted to a practical overview of the most recent release of OpenCL, presented by TBD. Although we primarily target those new to OpenCL, we believe that more advanced users will also find this tutorial to be of interest.
The afternoon session will focus on tools for OpenCL. This part of the tutorial is now open to submissions for proposals to present a relevant tool. We encourage you to submit an abstract for review. This abstract should not exceed 4 pages. In case your proposal is accepted, please be prepared to include a demo. The deadline for tutorial proposal submissions is January 25th, 2013. Please email submissions to tutorials at iwocl.org.
Call for Posters
The theme of this year’s workshop is, “Portability and Performance”. To encourage discussion of the latest developments in the OpenCL community, there will be a poster session during the reception on Monday evening.
We encourage you to submit an abstract for review. This abstract should not exceed 2 pages.The deadline for poster submissions is January 25th, 2013. Please email submissions to posters at iwocl.org .
The abstracts of the accepted posters will be published in the form of short communications in the workshop proceedings, provided that at least one of the authors has registered for the workshop.
