                      CALL FOR PAPERS


           LLVM-HPC: The LLVM Compiler Infrastructure in HPC

               November 17th, 2014, New Orleans
                     In conjunction with the
         2014 ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference (SC'14)


## Abstract

LLVM, winner of the 2012 ACM Software System Award, has become an
integral part of the software-development ecosystem for optimizing
compilers, dynamic-language execution engines, source-code analysis
and transformation tools, debuggers and linkers, and a whole host of
programming-language and toolchain-related components. Now heavily
used in both academia and industry, where it allows for rapid
development of production-quality tools, LLVM is increasingly used in
work targeted at high-performance computing. Research in and
implementation of programming-language analysis, compilation,
execution and profiling has clearly benefited from the availability of
a high-quality, freely-available infrastructure on which to build.
This workshop will focus on recent developments, from both academia
and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in
high-performance computing.

## Format

This workshop will feature contributed papers, invited talks, and
panel discussions focusing on recent developments, from both academia
and industry, that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in
high-performance computing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Compiler design for highly-concurrent/parallel environments
* Compilation techniques targeted at high-performance computing codes
* Programming-language implementation techniques enabling high performance and high productivity
* Embedding compilation and dynamic execution at scale
* Tools for optimization, profiling and feedback
* Source code transformation and analysis

## Deadlines

* Paper submissions due: September 1, 2014
* Notification to authors of acceptance: October 1, 2014
* Camera-ready papers due: November 1, 2014
* Workshop takes place: November 17, 2014

Please see the SC14 home page (http://sc14.supercomputing.org/) for
registration deadlines and other information associated with the
parent event.

## Submissions

We are using EasyChair to manage submissions.  The link to submit
papers will be added to the conference home page in the near future.

## Proceedings

The proceedings will be archived in both the ACM Digital Library
and IEEE Xplore, by virtue of SIGHPC.

## Organizers

* Hal Finkel, Argonne National Laboratory, hfinkel at anl.gov
