LCPC 2020 : Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing
Call For Papers
Since its inception in 1988, the Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC) has been a leading venue for cutting-edge research on all aspects of parallel programming systems -- from parallel programming models, languages, compilers, runtimes and tools, to results related to new parallel applications or systems. Its scope is particularly broad: it encompasses foundational results, as well as practical experience reports and bold new ideas for future systems.
In addition to its traditional themes in parallel programming systems, relevant topics include advances in programming systems for heterogeneous and reconfigurable computing, mobile computing, IoT and cloud computing, and papers in data analytics, machine learning and cognitive computing. Along with research in new computing domains such as analog, neuromorphic and quantum computing, LCPC particularly encourages submissions in areas that are enabled or enhanced by parallelism and work that combines scientific computing with data analytics and machine learning.
Specific topics of interest for LCPC 2020 include, but are not limited to:
Compilers for parallel computing, including heterogeneous systems
Static, dynamic and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
Just-in-time compiling, including for scripting languages
Parallel programming models and languages for traditional and emerging architectures
Languages and tools for programming quantum computing systems
Formal methods in analysis, verification, and software engineering of parallel programs
Intermediate representations for general-purpose and domain-specific compilation
Parallel runtime systems and libraries
Performance analysis and debugging tools for parallel programs
Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded Systems, Bio, IoT
Fault tolerance in parallel systems
Parallel communication idioms and libraries (e.g. MPI, OpenSHMEM)
LCPC 2020 invites the following kinds of papers in Springer Verlag LNCS format:
Full papers of up to 15 pages on innovative and original research that describe new research contributions
Short papers of up to 8 pages on preliminary results, surveys, demonstrations, or visions for future research
Note that presentations for both kinds of papers will be 30 minutes (25 minutes talk + 5 minutes questions)
Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be pre-workshop, informal proceedings as well as post-workshop proceedings in Springer Verlag’s LNCS series. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for preparing papers for the formal proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.
