 CnC-2013: The Fifth Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop

Sept. 23-24, 2013 at Qualcomm Research Silicon Valley, Santa Clara, CA (co-located with LCPC'13)

Important Dates

  *Abstracts Due: August 22, 2013* (extended from August 16, 2013)
   Notification: August 23, 2013
   Workshop: September 23-24, 2013


  The annual Concurrent Collections (CnC) workshop is a forum for
  researchers and developers of parallel programs to interact on a
  variety of issues related to next-generation parallel programming
  models. The focus is on fostering a community around the CnC
  programming model; however, we also strongly encourage
  participation by anyone with an interest in programming models
  inspired by dataflow and/or tuple space ideas as well as current or
  emerging applications of such models.

Participation and Call for Abstracts

  The workshop agenda will include a CnC tutorial and presentations
  selected from contributed abstracts. Topics of interest include,
  but are not limited to: language design and implementation,
  semantics and theory, application experiences, and teaching of CnC.

  If you would like to give a talk, please submit a short abstract
  (between 200 and 500 words in length) by Aug. 16, 2013 to both
  workshop chairs at pouchet at cs.ucla and kwheeler at micron.com.

  There will be a small registration fee to cover lunch at the workshop.

Background on CnC

  CnC is a parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that
  differs from other approaches in its philosophy. A CnC programmer
  doesn't specify parallel operations; instead, he/she only specifies
  semantic ordering constraints. This provides a separation of
  concerns between the domain expert and the tuning expert,
  simplifying the job of the domain expert while providing more
  flexibility to the tuning expert. Details on CnC and related
  research can be found at:


  Prior workshops have served as a forum for users and potential
  users of Concurrent Collections (CnC), to discuss experiences with
  CnC and a range of topics, including developments for the language,
  applications, usability, performance, semantics, and teaching of
