Call For Papers


As heterogeneous node architectures are becoming more prevalent for mainstream computing systems, the requirement for simple and platform portable programming methods manifests in a number of different programming strategies. Application developers that want to migrate existing to or develop new applications for these novel platforms, are looking for best-practice approaches that offer a reasonable results in a short period of development time. As a result domain specific languages as well as directive based programming methods are welcome strategies when targeting heterogeneous system architectures, since they can abstract the underlying hardware specific details of low-level programming approaches and have shown to offer very good productivity. The holy grail for all such strategies is to achieve not only a platform portability but also offer an application performance the is comparable to the low-level programming models on multiple platforms without code changes. The proposed workshop will solicit papers and presentations both on the methodology of these approaches as well as best-practice experiences from early adopters.

Topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited to):

Directives-based programming models for current and emerging systems
Ideas and implementations for language extensions
Language extensions or programming strategies for memory hierarchies
Interoperability and Composability with low-level APIs
Users’ experiences and implementations
Scientific libraries interoperability with directive-based programming models
Exploring high-level prescriptive or descriptive programming approaches
Hybrid programming approaches (OpenMP + MPI, MPI +X, MPI + OpenACC and so on)
Task-based programming (asynchronous execution, scheduling)
Translating to low-level API, design approaches and challenges
Experiences developing applications for current and emerging systems
Challenges in maintaining a portable yet single code base
Debugging, performance evaluation and benchmark studies
Energy/Power-aware compiler and runtime optimizations for current and emerging systems

Papers Submission Guidelines:

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community.

Format: Submissions are limited to 10 pages in the IEEE format (see The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page limit.
