        19th Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP'14) 
                                  February 2014 - Orlando, Florida 

                                                 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 for parallel and heterogeneous systems 
Task-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, cloud computing

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. Poster submissions should meet similar criteria for originality and relevance, but may present emerging ideas or results that are not yet sufficiently developed for a full paper. 

PPoPP 2014 is co-located with HPCA 2014 and CGO 2014 this year. Authors should carefully consider the difference in focus of the conferences when deciding where to submit a paper.
