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

Kei Davis

    7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing
             September 29, 2018, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

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.

Papers, Presentations, and Demonstrations

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.

Important Dates

   - Submission Deadline: Midnight July 29, 2018 Anywhere on Earth.
   - Notification: early-mid August (TBD)
   - FHPC 2018: Saturday Sept. 29, 2018.
