                      CALL FOR PAPERS


 The Second Workshop on the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure in HPC

              November 15th, 2015, Austin, TX
                  In conjunction with the
       2015 ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference (SC'15)


The second annual LLVM in HPC Workshop, held in conjunction with SC'15 and in
cooperation with SIGHPC.

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 second annual workshop will feature contributed papers, invited talks, and
a panel discussion 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


  * Paper submissions due: September 1, 2015
  * Notification to authors of acceptance: September 28, 2015
  * Camera-ready papers due: October 12, 2015
  * Workshop takes place: November 15, 2015

Please see the SC'15 home page (http://sc15.supercomputing.org/) for
registration deadlines and other information associated with the parent event.


We are using EasyChair to manage submissions:


The proceedings will be archived in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE
Xplore through SIGHPC.
