Call for Abstracts:

*CnC 2015: The Seventh Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop*


September 7-8, 2015 at Raleigh, NC (co-located with LCPC'15


*Important Dates*

Abstracts Due: August 10, 2015

Acceptance Notification: August 13, 2015

Programming Contest Notice of Participation Due: August 10, 2015

Workshop: September 7-8, 2015


The annual Concurrent Collections (CnC) workshop is a forum for researchers
and developers of parallel programs to interact on a variety of issues
related to next-generation parallel programming models. The focus is on
fostering a community around the CnC programming model. However, we also
strongly encourage participation by anyone interested in programming models
inspired by dataflow and/or tuple space ideas, coordination languages,
dependence programming, as well as current or emerging applications of
these models.

*Participation and Call for Abstracts*

The workshop agenda will include CnC tutorials on current and future
trends, talks selected from contributed abstracts, and a programming
contest. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: language
design and implementation, semantics and theory, application experiences,
and teaching CnC.

If you are interested in giving a talk, please submit a short abstract
(between 200–500 words in length) to workshop chairs Aparna
Chandramowlisharan and Milind Kulkarni at cncworkshop2015 at gmail.com no
later than *Monday, August 10, 2015*.

*Programming Contest*

Following up on last year's successful edition, we are holding the second
annual CnC Programming Contest! We are challenging small teams (as small as
one contestant) of CnC developers to compete in a programming contest. If
you are interested in competing, please send a team name, list of team
member(s), and a problem of choice to workshop chairs Aparna
Chandramowlisharan and Milind Kulkarni at cncworkshop2015 at gmail.com no
later than *Monday, August 10, 2015*. Interested teams are encouraged to
contact the organizers prior to the deadline to discuss problem choices,
etc. There will be a prize awarded to the winning team!

*Background on CnC*

CnC is a parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that
philosophically differs from other approaches. CnC programmers do not
specify parallel operations. Instead, they only specify semantic ordering
constraints. This provides a separation of concerns between the domain
expert and tuning expert, simplifying the domain expert’s job while
providing more flexibility to the tuning expert. Details on CnC and related
research can be found at: http://intel.ly/concurrent-collections
<http://intel.ly/concurrent-collections>and http://habanero.rice.edu/cnc

The CnC workshops serve as a forum for users and potential users to discuss
experiences with the programming, as well as a range of topics, including
developments for the language, applications, usability, performance,
semantics, and teaching CnC.

If you have any questions about logistics or participation, please contact
the workshop chairs at cncworkshop2015 at gmail.com.
