18th ACM SIGPLAN Annual Symposium on Principles and Practice of 

                                    Parallel Programming
23-27 February 2013, Shenzhen, China

# Call for Papers

PPoPP is a forum for leading work on all aspects of parallel programming, 

including foundational and theoretical aspects, techniques, languages, 

compilers, runtime systems, tools, and practical experiences. In the context 

of the symposium, "parallel programming" encompasses work on concurrent 

and parallel systems (multicore, multithreaded, heterogeneous, clustered 

systems, distributed systems, grids, clouds, and large scale machines). Given 

the rise of parallel architectures into the consumer market (desktops, laptops, 

and mobile devices), PPoPP is particularly interested in work that addresses 

new parallel workloads, techniques, and tools that attempt to improve the 

productivity of parallel programming, and work towards improved synergy with 

such emerging architectures.  Specific topics of interest include (but are not 

limited to):

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

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 experiences should indicate how they illustrate general principles; papers about parallel programming foundations should indicate how they relate to practice.

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference web site. Abstracts must include contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations, and a description (100-400 words) of the anticipated content of the paper. Full paper submissions must be in PDF formatted for US letter-size paper. They must not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive) in standard ACM two-column conference format (preprint mode, with page number). Templates for ACM format are available for Microsoft Word, and LaTeX at http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm (use the 9 pt template). Over-length submissions will be summarily discarded by the Program Chairs. Submissions will be judged on correctness, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity.

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 members of the community, as defined here: http://www.sigplan.org/review_policies.htm (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.

The proceedings will be published by ACM Press. Authors of accepted papers and posters will be required to sign the ACM copyright form. Instructions for preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers. Instructions for preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.
