Call For Papers

WLPP 2017 is a  full-day workshop to be held at the PPAM 2017 focusing on  high level programming for large-scale parallel systems and multicore  processors, with special emphasis on component architectures and models. Its goal is to bring together researchers working in the areas of applications, computational models, language design, compilers, system architecture, and  programming tools to discuss new developments in programming Clouds and  parallel systems.

The workshop focuses on any language-based parallel programming  model such as OpenMP, Python, Intel TBB, Microsoft .NET 4.0 parallel  extensions (TPL and PPL), Java parallel extensions, PGAS languages, Unified Parallel C (UPC), Co-Array FORTRAN (CAF) and GPGPU  language-based programming models such as CUDA, OpenCL and OpenACC. Contributions on other  high-level programming models and supportive environments for parallel and  distributed systems are equally welcome.

This workshop  will feature papers that explore experiences from application developers in  the use of the language and performance of real applications, experiences in  the implementation of tools supporting the development and parallelization of  applications or supporting the final execution on different computing  platforms. We also welcome experiences in moving ideas and concepts from one  programming model to another.

Possible topics include, but are not limited  to,

       * Language and library implementations.
       * Proposals for, and evaluation of, language extensions.
       * Applications development experiences.
       * Comparisons between programming models.
       * Benchmark Suites and performance studies.
       * Debuggers and performance analysis tools.
       * Compiler Implementation and Optimization.
       * Optimization Techniques.
       * Hybrid Models (OpenMP-MPI etc.)

Please submit full papers via the PPAM Conference submission system (formatted according to the PPAM specification), not previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Please acknowledge the workshop chair (address below) by sending an email include a cover page with the title, abstract, names and e-mail of the authors. Please submit pdf-files.

Journal Special Issue:

The authors of the best articles selected by the program committee and the guest editors will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue that will be published in the Journal of Supercomputing, Springer (approved).
