Call for Tutorial and Workshop Proposals (PPoPP 2016)
Date 12-18 March 2016, 2016, Barcelona, Spain

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. We are soliciting proposals of workshops and
tutorials that fall into the general scope of PPoPP. Workshops and
tutorials will be held on Saturday–Sunday, March 12–13, 2016 and may
be a half day or a full day in length.

We encourage members of the community to consider submitting proposals
for workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners
working on research topics of significant current interest, as well as
workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working in
particular areas. Specific topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

  + Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  + Concurrent data structures
  + Development, analysis, or management tools
  + Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  + Formal analysis and verification
  + High-performance / scientific computing
  + Middleware for parallel systems
  + Parallel algorithms
  + Parallel applications and frameworks
  + Parallel programming languages
  + Parallel programming theory and models
  + Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud
  + Performance analysis, debugging and optimization
  + Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  + Software engineering for parallel programs
  + Software for heterogeneous architectures
  + Software productivity for parallel programming
  + Synchronization and concurrency control
  + Task-parallel libraries
