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.
* Performance Portability.
* 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).
