2010 2010 19th IEEE Asian Test Symposium  
In continuation of a successful series of events, the 4th symposium of the Many-core Applications Research Community (MARC) took place at the Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering (HPI) in Potsdam. On December 8th and 9th 2011, researchers from different fields presented their current and future work on many-core hardware architectures, their programming models, and the resulting research questions for the upcoming generation of heterogeneous parallel systems. While the

Single Chip Cloud Computer (SCC) serves as common research platform for most MARC members, other interesting research on next generation many-core platforms was also discussed on this event. The symposium focused on topics such as • Operating system support for novel many-core architectures • Virtualization solutions to deal with hardware limitations • Dealing with legacy software on novel many-core architectures • New approaches for leveraging on-die messaging facilities • Traditional and new programming models for novel many-core hardware • Concepts for runtime systems on novel many-core hardware • Performance issues with modern on-die messaging facilities and caching infrastructures This proceedings include 14 papers from 5 symposium sessions. Every paper was reviewed by at least three reviewers from the program committee, consisting of: We would like to thank our program committee members for their hard work and for their suggestions in the selection of papers. We would like to thank all those who submitted papers for their efforts and for the quality of their submissions. We also would like to thank Jan-Arne Sobania and Sabine Wagner for their assistance and support. Thank you for your active participation in the 4th MARC Symposium. We hope you found this event to be productive and enjoyable, and we look forward to seeing you next year at 5th MARC symposium and related events.
