Call For Papers

Call for Paper
4th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Software Engineering for Parallel Systems (SEPS 2017)
(Co-located with SPLASH 2017 as an ACM SIGPLAN-approved workshop)

October 23, 2017, Vancouver, Canada.

General Scope:
The purpose of this workshop is to provide a stable forum for researchers and practitioners dealing with compelling challenges of the software development life cycle on modern parallel platforms. The increased complexity of parallel applications on modern parallel platforms (e.g. multicore/manycore, distributed or hybrid) requires more insight into development processes, and necessitates the use of advanced methods and techniques supporting developers in creating parallel applications or parallelizing and reengineering sequential legacy applications. We aim to advance the state of the art in different phases of parallel software development, covering software engineering aspects such as requirements engineering and software specification; design and implementation; program analysis, profiling and tuning; testing and debugging.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Process models for parallel software development
* Requirement engineering of parallel software
* Design and build of parallel programs
* Parallel design patterns
* Structural and application patterns of parallel programs
* Parallel software architectures
* Modeling techniques for parallel software
* Parallel programming models and paradigms
* Profiling and program analysis
* Dynamic and static analysis
* Refactoring and reengineering for parallelism
* Performance tuning and auto-tuning
* Energy-efficient parallel computing
* Testing and debugging of parallel applications
* Tools and environments for parallel software development
* Case studies and experience reports

The workshop welcomes the following types of submissions:
* “Work in progress” - abstract submissions (max. 800 words)
* Position papers (max. 2 pages) and short papers (max. 4 pages) including:
- Industrial and practical experiences
- Tool presentations/demonstration
- Early results & novel ideas without a comprehensive/extensive evaluation
- Preliminary and exploratory work with unconventional approaches or wild and crazy ideas
* Original, unpublished regular papers on current research (max. 10 pages)

Especially, we encourage work in progress or early-stage works as abstract submissions, which could be accepted for the presentation at the workshop without including in the proceedings publication. A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the major results and conclusions (max. 800 words). Also presentation of the position papers on ongoing research are central in SEPS 2017, and could be accepted for the formal proceeding publications in the ACM Digital Library by the peer-review process (in addition to short papers and long papers).

Submission: Papers and abstracts submitted to SEPS 2017 must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF format.

For further information, please check the format instructions for authors:
All of paper submissions must be done using the submission site:

Publication: All accepted papers will be published in as formal proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
Keynote presentation: TBA
Registration: Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Workshop.

Note that SEPS 2017 presenters are eligible to apply for the PAC Fund:
