================================ CALL FOR PAPERS ==============================

ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing, FHPC'12

Copenhagen, Denmark
15 September 2012

Co-located with the 17th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
Functional Programming (ICFP 2012)


The FHPC workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring uses of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level) programming technology in application domains where large-scale computations arise naturally and high performance is essential. Such computations would typically -- but not necessarily -- involve execution on highly parallel systems ranging from multi-core multi-processor systems to graphics accelerators (GPGPUs), reconfigurable hardware (FPGAs), large-scale compute clusters or any combination thereof. It is becoming apparent that radically new and well founded methodologies for programming such systems are required to address their inherent complexity and to reconcile execution performance with programming productivity.

The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results, experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as highly transparent, maintainable, and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the performance of machine-oriented imperative implementations.

The 2012 FHPC workshop comes with a particular theme motivated by geographic co-location with the newly established HIPERFIT Research Centre for Functional High-Performance Computing for Financial Information Technology at the University of Copenhagen. Hence, we particularly encourage submissions with a background in computational finance. Notwithstanding, the workshop welcomes submissions from other application domains as much as general-purpose work on the theory and practice of declarative approaches to high-performance computing.

Submission and publication

Submitted papers must be in portable document format (PDF), formatted according to the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines (double column, 9pt format). See the SIGPLAN Author Information page for more information and style files. The page limit is 12 pages.
Any paper submitted must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy ( Submission deadlines and page limit are firm.

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
