Call for Workshops and Tutorials

We are soliciting proposals of workshops and tutorials that fall into the general scope of PPoPP. Workshops and tutorials will be held on Saturday–Sunday, March 12–13, 2016 and may be a half day or a full day in length. We encourage members of the community to consider submitting proposals for workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working on research topics of significant current interest, as well as workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working in particular areas. Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  • Concurrent data structures
  • Development, analysis, or management tools
  • Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  • Formal analysis and verification
  • High-performance / scientific computing
  • Middleware for parallel systems
  • Parallel algorithms
  • Parallel applications and frameworks
  • Parallel programming languages
  • Parallel programming theory and models
  • Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud
  • Performance analysis, debugging and optimization
  • Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  • Software engineering for parallel programs
  • Software for heterogeneous architectures
  • Software productivity for parallel programming
  • Synchronization and concurrency control
  • Task-parallel libraries

Important dates

In order to encourage early organization, workshops will be selected in an ongoing basis.

  • Proposal submission deadline: September 14, 2015
  • Notification of acceptance: 2 weeks after submission (latest: September 30, 2015).
  • Workshop/tutorial date: March 12–13, 2016

Proposals

Please submit your proposals to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ppopp2016-wt. All proposals need to include the following information in a short pdf (1-3 pages):

  • Workshop program
    • Sample call for papers, including the workshop title, the scope, the format (e.g., keynote, panel discussion, etc) and the main topics of the workshop
    • Any invited or keynote speakers
    • Organizers bio and affiliation and a tentative list of PC members
    • Where the selected papers will be published
  • Tutorial program
    • The title and abstract of the tutorial
    • An outline of tutorial content and objectives
    • Prerequisite knowledge
    • A biography of the tutorial organizers and relevant experiences on the topic
  • The expected number of participants and duration of the program, i.e., 1/2 day or full day
  • Advertisement: how do you plan to solicit participation to your program (e.g., via social media communities, workshop/tutorial website, mailing lists etc)
  • Past workshop/tutorials on the same topic (if any): include information on the last workshop/tutorial of the same topic held in this or other conferences such as the year it was held and the number of attendees. For workshop, please also include the number of submissions and published papers. A link to past workshop/tutorial would be very helpful too.

The workshop proposals will be evaluated by a committee comprising the following members of the PPoPP 2016 organizing committee: General Chair (Rafael Asenjo), Program Chair (Tim Harris), Workshops and Tutorials Chairs (Mikel Luján, Javier Navaridas).

For more information, please contact the tutorial & workshop co-chairs Mikel Luján (mikel.lujan@manchester.ac.uk) or Javier Navaridas (javier.navaridas@manchester.ac.uk).

Call for Papers

Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  • Concurrent data structures
  • Development, analysis, or management tools
  • Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  • Formal analysis and verification
  • High-performance / scientific computing
  • Middleware for parallel systems
  • Parallel algorithms
  • Parallel applications and frameworks
  • Parallel programming languages
  • Parallel programming theory and models
  • Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud
  • Performance analysis, debugging and optimization
  • Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  • Software engineering for parallel programs
  • Software for heterogeneous architectures
  • Software productivity for parallel programming
  • Synchronization and concurrency control

Papers should report on original research relevant to parallel programming, and should contain enough background materials to make them accessible to the entire parallel programming research community.

Papers describing experience should indicate how they illustrate general principles; papers about parallel programming foundations should indicate how they relate to practice. Poster submissions should meet similar criteria for originality and relevance, but may present emerging ideas or results that are not yet sufficiently developed for a full paper.

PPoPP 2016 will be in Barcelona, 12-18 March 2016. It will be co-located with HPCA 2016, CGO 2016, and LLVM 2016. Authors should carefully consider the difference in focus of the conferences when deciding where to submit a paper.

Submissions

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference submission site. Abstracts must include contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations, and a description of the anticipated content of the paper (100-400 words). Full paper submissions must be in PDF formatted for US letter size paper. They must not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive) in standard SIGPLAN two-column conference format (preprint mode, with page numbers). Templates for the SIGPLAN format are available for Microsoft Word, and LaTeX at http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/ (use the 9 pt template, and do not adjust any margins, line spacing, etc.). Over-length submissions will not be accepted. Submissions will be judged on correctness, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity. We anticipate selecting best paper and best student paper awards.

Paper submission is double-blind to reduce reviewer bias against or for authors or institutions. Thus, the submissions cannot include author names, institutions or hints based on references to prior work. If authors are extending their own work, they need to reference and discuss the past work in third person, as if they were extending someone else’s research. We realize that for some papers it will still reveal authorship, but as long as an effort was made to follow these guidelines, the submission will not be penalized. Authors must identify any conflicts of interest with PC members and external review committee members, as defined here: http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Review/ (ACM SIGPLAN policy).

Poster submissions must conform to the same format restrictions, but may not exceed 2 pages in length. Paper submissions that are not accepted for regular presentations will automatically be considered for posters; authors who do not want their paper considered for the poster session should indicate this in their abstract submission. Two-page summaries of posters will be included in the conference proceedings.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)

Artifact evaluation

Last year, PPoPP 2015 successfully ran artifact evaluation process for the first time. PPoPP 2016 continues this experiment. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to formally submit their supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process. The Artifact Evaluation process is run by a separate committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully will receive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Further information is available on the PPoPP AEC web page. Authors of accepted papers are encouraged (but not obliged) to make these materials publicly available upon publication of the proceedings, by including them as “source materials” in the ACM Digital Library.
