In continuation of a successful series of events, the 6th symposium of the Many-core Applications Research Community (MARC) took place at ONERA research center in Toulouse. On July 19th and 20th 2012, 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.

These proceedings include 12 papers from 4 symposium sessions. Every paper was reviewed by at least three reviewers from the program committee, consisting of:
