Call For Papers

Aims and scope of HLPP

As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms. Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism.

Since 2001 the HLPP series of workshops/symposia has been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level performance models. The 8th Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications will be held July 2-3 in the historic center of Pisa.


HLPP 2015 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, the following aspects:
- High-level programming and performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools
- Declarative parallel programming methodologies
- Algorithmic skeletons and constructive methods
- Declarative parallel programming languages and libraries: semantics and implementation
- Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
- Software synthesis, automatic code generation for parallel programming
- Model-driven software engineering with parallel programs
- High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms
- High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets
- Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
- Teaching experience with high­-level tools and methods

Important dates:

Submission deadline: April 12 (anywhere on earth)

Symposium: July 2-3 (Thursday/Friday)
Camera-ready paper due for IJPP journal publication: Aug 31

Paper submission

Papers submitted to HLPP2015 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJSS latex macro package using the single column option (\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}) and submitted via the EasyChair Conference Management System as one pdf file. The strict page limit for initial submission and camera-ready version is 20 pages in the aforementioned format.
Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the international technical programme committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and quality of presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2015 symposium and present the paper. After the symposium you have ample time to revise the paper incorporating potential comments and remarks of your colleagues. We expect the the HLPP 2015 special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming to appear online-first by the end of the year and the printed edition in mid-2016.


Accepted papers will be distributed as informal draft proceedings during the symposium. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP).


Registration page is not open yet.


HLPP 2015 will be hosted by the Dept. of Computer Science (GPS coords 43.720598, 10.408236) of the Univ. of Pisa.

Participants may reserve rooms in any of the Pisa Hotels and B&B. Pisa is a small city and most of the hotels are no more that 15 minutes away (walking) from the Dept. of Computer Science, which is located downtown, in the North-East part of the city, right inside the medieval city walls.

The organizers recommend timely reservation of rooms as the workshop is run in full tourist season.
