Euro-TM Workshop on Transactional Memory (WTM 2014)

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, April 13, 2014

Co-located with EuroSys 2014

The Euro-TM Workshop on Transactional Memory (WTM) is a forum for researchers and practitioners addressing the new challenges of concurrency in the cloud and many-core era.  Transactional Memory (TM) is a promising technology that aims at making parallel programming more productive and programmer friendly by providing an alternative to traditional lock-based concurrency. Intensive research on TM has recently led to hardware TM implementations on major commodity high-performance microprocessors and to TM support for the world's leading open source compiler.

The Euro-TM Workshop on Transactional Memory welcomes work-in-progress snapshots for this period of maturing TM research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Language and compiler support for TM and other synchronization primitives
- TM semantics
- Consistency and memory models for TM
- TM correctness and performance, testing, analysis and debugging
- Distributed TM, replication and reliability
- Scalability in large-scale many-cores and cloud systems
- Hardware support for TM
- OS/runtime support for contention management and transaction scheduling
- TM applications and benchmarks
