This is a CALL FOR PAPERS for

    IMPACT 2016

6th International Workshop on 
Polyhedral Compilation Techniques


held in conjunction with HiPEAC 2016 (Jan 18-20, 2016)
Prague, Czech Republic.

Paper submission:    October 25, 2015
Author notification: November 27, 2015
Final version due:   December 11, 2015
Workshop date:       TBD


Polyhedral techniques have gained attention due to the rise of
multi-core processors and other architectures that require parallelism
and more complex schedules for data locality. At the heart of the
polyhedral model is an abstraction of programs that enables powerful
analysis and scheduling of applications. Recent developments in the
polyhedral model research area includes automatic parallelization
targeting various platforms, program verification, and hardware
synthesis. IMPACT is a unique workshop aimed to bring together
researchers and practitioners interested in polyhedral techniques to
exchange ideas. This year's IMPACT will be held in conjunction with
HiPEAC as a one-day workshop including technical paper presentations,
panel discussions, and possibly a keynote.

We welcome both theoretical and experimental papers on all aspects of
polyhedral compilation and optimization. We also welcome submissions
describing preliminary results, crazy new ideas, position papers,
experience reports, and available tools, with an aim to stimulate
discussions, collaborations, and advances in the field. The following
illustrate potential IMPACT papers:

	- Discussion of a preliminary idea with an attempt to place 
	  it in context but no experimental results.

	- Experimental results comparing two or more existing ideas.

	- Presentation of an existing idea in a different way including 
	  illustrations of how the idea applies in current codes. 
	  Attribution should be done as well as possible.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- program optimization (automatic parallelization, tiling, etc.)
- code generation
- data/communication management on GPUs, accelerators and
  distributed systems
- hardware/high-level synthesis
- static analysis
- program verification
- model checking
- theoretical foundations of the polyhedral model
- extensions of the polyhedral model
- scalability and robustness of polyhedral compilation techniques
- tool demonstration


Submissions should not exceed 8 pages (recommended 6 pages), excluding
references, formatted as per ACM proceedings format. Please use the
following template when preparing your manuscript:

Submissions should be in PDF format and printable on US Letter or A4
sized paper. Please submit through EasyChair at:

Proceedings will be posted online. If the final version of an accepted
paper does not sufficiently address the comments of the reviewers, then
it may be accompanied by a note from the program committee. Publication
at IMPACT will not prevent later publication in conferences or journals
of the presented work. However, simultaneous submission to IMPACT and 
other workshop, conference, or journal is often prohibited by the policy 
of other venues. For instance, a paper with significant overlap with 
IMPACT submission cannot be sent to PLDI 2016 or any other overlapping
SIGPLAN event.

We will also continue the poster teasers we started last year. Authors
of the rejected papers that still plan to attend HiPEAC will have an
opportunity to present their submission in the HiPEAC poster session. We
encourage poster presentations by providing a short (3 min.) slot in the
workshop to advertise the posters. If possible, posters related to
IMPACT will be gathered in a same vicinity at the poster session.

Please make sure that at least one of the authors can attend the
workshop if your work is accepted. Note that HiPEAC overlaps with POPL
this year.
