HLPP 2016
The 9th International Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications

Münster, Germany

Aims and scope of HLPP
As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms. Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism.

Since 2001 the HLPP series of workshops/symposia has been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level performance models. The 9th Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications will be held in Muenster, Germany.

HLPP 2016 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, the following aspects:

  • High-level programming, performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools
  • Declarative parallel programming methodologies based on functional, logical, data-flow, and other paradigms
  • Algorithmic skeletons, patterns, etc. and constructive methods
  • High-level parallelism in programming languages and libraries (e.g, Haskell, Scala, etc.): semantics and implementation
  • Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
  • Efficient code generation, auto-tuning and optimization for parallel programming
  • Model-driven software engineering for parallel systems
  • Domain-specific languages: design, implementation and applications
  • High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms with accelerators, e.g., GPU, Xeon Phi, etc.
  • High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets
  • Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
  • Teaching experience with high-level tools and methods

Paper submission
Papers submitted to HLPP2016 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJSS Latex macro package using the single column option (\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}) and submitted via the EasyChair Conference Management System as one pdf file. The strict page limit for initial submission and camera-ready version is 18 pages in the aforementioned format. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the program committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity, and quality of presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2016 symposium and present the paper. After the symposium, you have ample time to revise the paper incorporating potential comments and remarks of your colleagues.

Accepted papers will be distributed as informal draft proceedings during the symposium. Additionally, accepted papers will be published in a special issue of a renowned international journal. Depending on their subject, some papers will be selected for the International Journal of Parallel Programming, while others will be selected for the Parallel Processing Letters. We expect the special issues to appear online-first by the end of 2016 and the printed edition in 2017.

HLPP 2016 will be hosted by the University of Münster, Germany.
Participants may reserve rooms in any of the Münster Hotels and B&B. The organizers will make recommendations later.
