Call For Papers

1st SYCL workshop (SYCL'16) - co-located with PPoPP'16

Barcelona, Spain Sunday, 13th March, 2016

SYCL (sɪkəl - as in sickle) is a royalty-free, cross-platform C++ abstraction
layer that builds on the underlying concepts, portability and efficiency of
OpenCL, while adding the ease-of-use and flexibility of C++. For example, SYCL
enables single source development where C++ template functions can contain both
host and device code to construct complex algorithms that use OpenCL
acceleration, and then re-use them throughout their source code on different
types of data. SYCL has also been designed with resilience from the start, by
featuring, for example, a fall-back mechanism to automatically re-enqueue
kernels on different queues in case of a failure.

The SYCL Workshop aims to gather together SYCL's users, researchers, educators
and implementors to encourage and grow a community of users behind the SYCL
standard, and related work in C++ for heterogeneous architectures. This will be
a half-day workshop. SYCL'16 will be held in Barcelona, 13 March 2016,
co-located with PPoPP 2016, HPCA 2016, CGO 2016 and LLVM 2016.

Travel Awards

Student authors who present papers in this workshop are eligible to apply for
travel awards. Further details will be announced after notification of
acceptance.

Important Dates

Submissions: 23rd November
Notification: 21st December
Final version: 24th January, 2016
Workshop: Sunday, 13th March, 2016

Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference submission
site, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sycl16.
Submissions may be one of the following:

* Extended abstract: Two pages in standard SIGPLAN two-column conference
format (preprint mode, with page numbers)

* Short Paper: Four to six pages in standard SIGPLAN two-column conference
format (preprint mode, with page numbers)

Submissions must be in PDF format and printable on US Letter size
paper. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the
program committee. We will aim to give longer presentation slots to papers than
to extended abstracts. Conference papers will not be published, but made
available through the website, alongside the slides used for each presentation.
The aim is to enable authors to get feedback and ideas that can later go into
other publications. We will encourage questions and discussions during the
workshop, to create an open environment for the community to engage with.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Applications implemented using SYCL
* C++ Libraries using SYCL
* C++ programming models for OpenCL (C++AMP, Boost.Compute, ...)
* Other C++ applications using OpenCL
* New proposals to the SYCL specification
* Integration of SYCL with other programming models
* Compilation techniques to optimise SYCL kernels
* Performance comparisons between SYCL and other programming models
* Implementation of SYCL on novel architectures (FPGA, DSP, ...)
* Using SYCL in fault-tolerant systems
* Porting applications from CUDA to SYCL
* Reports on SYCL implementations
* Debuggers, profilers and other tools
