                        CALL FOR PAPERS


                 Fifth International Workshop on 
       Domain-Specific Languages and High-Level Frameworks
                 for High Performance Computing

                     In conjunction with the
      SC15: The International Conference on High Performance
            Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

                  in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC

                 November 16th, 2015, Austin, TX



Multi-level heterogeneous parallelism and deep memory hierarchies in
current and emerging computer systems make their programming for
high-performance applications very difficult. The task is made more
challenging by the changing landscape of system architecture mandated
by power and micro-architecture considerations. Domain-specific
languages (DSLs) and high-level frameworks (HLFs) provide convenient
abstractions, shielding application developers from much of the
complexity and variability of explicitly programming in standard
programming languages like C/C++/Fortran. Effective design of such
abstractions for the high-performance computing context requires close
interaction between researchers developing such languages and
frameworks and domain experts with a deep understanding of the problem
to be solved.

While a number of other venues exist that address domain-specific
languages and high-level programming abstractions, none of them focus
on the challenges to performance optimization and implementation on
parallel systems. This workshop seeks to bring together developers and
users of DSLs and HLFs to identify challenges and discuss solution
approaches for their effective implementation and use on a variety of
platforms, including massively parallel systems.

We solicit submissions on all aspects relating to domain-specific
languages and high-level frameworks for the HPC context, including,
but not limited to, the design, implementation, evaluation, or use of:

* Application frameworks
* Domain-specific languages and libraries
* High-level data structures
* High-level aspects of programming languages
* Directive-based optimization approaches


Submissions should be two or more pages in pdf format but less than 10
pages (all inclusive) and follow ACM conference formatting
guidelines. In addition to new ideas, experience stories, challenges
faced, and overview of prior work are encouraged.

At least one of the authors of each accepted submission is expected to
attend and present at the workshop. The final manuscripts of papers
will be archived in co-operation with ACM SIGHPC.

Submissions can be made online at:



  Submission deadline : 30 Aug 2015 **extended**
  Author notification : 15 Sep 2015
  Final papers due    :  7 Oct 2015
  WOLFHPC workshop    : 16 Nov 2015


Selected workshop papers will be invited to submit extended versions
of their manusripts to be considered for a special issue of the
International Journal of Parallel Programming. Deadline for submission
of the extended manuscripts is January 2016 (tentative).
