WPMVP'14: Workshop on Programming Models for SIMD/Vector Processing

                             Orlando, Florida
                     Held in conjunction with PPOPP’14

Call for Papers:
While GPU has gained wide-spread attention in the research community in
recent years, the design of “traditional” Single Instruction Multiple Data
(SIMD) and vector processing units for modern processors (ARM, POWER, X86)
have also quietly gone through an evolution to increase processing power,
relax programmability constraints, and expand application domains.  It is
time to take a fresh look at the programming interface design of
SIMD/vector units, some of which may sound last century like SIMD
intrinsics, while others increasingly resemble programming interfaces for


The purpose of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and
researchers from academia and industry alike to discuss issues, solutions,
and opportunities in enabling end users (developers) to effectively exploit
SIMD/vector processing in modern processors. We seek submissions that cover
all aspects of SIMD/vector processing.  Topics of interests include, but
are not restricted to:
      Programming models for SIMD/vector processing:
            C/C++/Fortran  extensions  for  SIMD  (e.g.,  OpenMP,  OpenACC,
            OpenCL, SIMD intrinsics)
            New data parallel or streaming programming models for SIMD
      Exploitation   of  SIMD/vector  in  Java,  scripting  languages,  and
      domain-specific languages
      Compilers & tools to discover and optimize SIMD parallelism
      Application frameworks for developing SIMD/vector applications
      Case study, experience report, and performance analysis of
      SIMD/vector applications


Submitted papers must be no more than 8 pages in length. Authors are
encouraged to use the ACM two column format. Each submission will receive
at least three reviews from the technical program committee and authors of
selected submissions will have 30 minutes to present their work at the

Authors must register and submit the paper through online submission system
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wpmvp2014). If you have
problems accessing the system, please e-mail wpmvp2014 at easychair.org.

Important dates

* Submission deadline: 11:59pm EST, November 15
* Author notification: December 20
* Final version due: January 20
