FHPC18 Call for Presentations and Demonstrations

by Kei Davis, June 26, 2018

Functional High-Performance Computing 2018: The refereed paper deadline has passed. In the workshop spirit, the refereed paper presentation program is being augmented to include less formally reviewed presentations in the form of talks not based on accepted papers, and software demonstrations. Topic areas of interest include research or development in progress, experience reports, and position/white paper statements.

Proposals will be subject to a mild reviewing process to insure relevance and general interest to FHPC. We expect time slots to be between one-half and one hour.

Prospective presenters are requested to submit an abstract describing their proposed contribution via the paper submission site. The deadline is July 29, 2018, midnight anywhere on Earth, but the PC reserves the right to accept proposals at any time after submission. As such, early submission is strongly encouraged.

Call for Presentations and Demonstrations:  Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing 2018 at ICFP

                CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
                                FHPC 2018
   7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing
            September 29, 2018, St. Louis, Missouri, USA
          https://icfp18.sigplan.org/track/FHPC-2018-papers

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.
