Call For Papers

FHPC 2018
7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing
September 29, 2018, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The 7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing (FHPC 2018) is being held as in previous years in conjunction with the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2018) together with numerous other workshops/symposia, and as a first, colocated with Strange Loop, in St. Louis, MO, USA.

Workshop Objectives

The FHPC 2018 workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners exploring uses of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level) programming systems or concepts in application domains where high performance is essential. The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results, experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as maintainable and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the performance of machine-oriented (low-level) imperative implementations.

All aspects of performance-critical programming and parallel programming are in scope for the workshop, irrespective of hardware target. This includes both traditional large-scale distributed-memory scientific computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with SMPs, GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors. FHPC 2018 seeks to encourage a range of submissions, focusing on work in progress and facilitating early exchange of ideas and open discussion on innovative and/or emerging results. Original research, experience reports, case studies, and evaluations of programming systems are all welcome. Work on incorporation of functional programming concepts into more traditional (imperative) HPC applications is explicitly solicited.

This year FHPC provides authors the opportunity to submit for evaluation any relevant artifacts that accompany their papers. The dissemination of artifacts promotes reproducibility, and enables authors to build on extant work, while it can also help to more unambiguously resolve questions about cases not considered by the original authors.

For the purpose of FHPC, we plan to reward selected artifacts with additional presentation time in a dedicated slot during the workshop, for example, for demonstrating (i) reproducibility of results or (ii) practical usage of the framework (visualization, demos, etc).

Artifact Details

The artifact-evaluation committee (AEC) will accept any artifact that authors wish to submit. Obviously, the better the artifact is packaged, the more likely the AEC can actually work with it. We ask the authors to provide provide the title of the FHPC paper submission, together with three files:

- a .pdf file that provides detailed instructions to the reviewers about how
- to install the artifact and what to look for in the evaluations an archive
- .zip or .tar.gz containing the artifact the submitted FHPC paper (PDF)

The artifact evaluation process is intended to encourage an open and constructive communication (via HotCRP) between (anonymous) reviewers and authors.

Submission of an artifact does not constitute tacit permission to make its content public. AEC members will be instructed that they may not publicise any part of your artifact during or after completing evaluation, nor retain any part of it after evaluation. Thus, you are free to include models, data files, proprietary binaries, and similar items in your artifact. The AEC organisers strongly encourage you to anonymise any data files that you submit.

Paper Format and Submission

- 12 page limit, shorter papers welcome
- Latex format and instructions
- Paper submissions
