HLPP 2017

The 10th International Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and 

July 10 - 11, 2017
Valladolid, Spain

== Aims and scope of HLPP ==

As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- 
and intra-chip parallelism, it becomes crucial to provide the software 
industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel 
programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are 
currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message 
passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms. 
Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and 
have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous 

Since 2001, the HLPP series of workshops/symposia has been a forum for 
researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools, and 
applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis 
is on software quality, programming productivity, and high-level 
performance models. The 10th Symposium on High-Level Parallel 
Programming and Applications will be held July 11-12th in the cultural 
city of Valladolid, Spain.

== Topics ==

HLPP 2017 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel 
programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, 
the following aspects:

  * High-level programming, performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM,
    etc.) and tools
  * Declarative parallel programming methodologies based on functional,
    logical, data-flow, and other paradigms
  * Algorithmic skeletons, patterns, etc., and constructive methods
  * High-level parallelism in programming languages and libraries (e.g,
    Haskell, Scala, etc.): semantics and implementation
  * Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
  * Efficient code generation, auto-tuning, and optimization for
    parallel programming
  * Model-driven software engineering for parallel systems
  * Domain-specific languages: design, implementation, and applications
  * High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical
    platforms with accelerators; e.g. GPU, Xeon Phi, etc.
  * High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured
  * Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
  * Teaching experience with high-level tools and methods

== Important dates ==

  * Submission deadline: *April 1*
  * Author notification: *May 8*
  * Camera-ready paper due for draft proceedings: *June 9*
  * Early registration deadline: *May 31*
  * Late registration deadline: *June 30* (after this date the
    registration will be only possible paying by cash at the
    registration desk during the symposium)
  * Symposium: *July 10-11*
  * Camera-ready paper due for journal publication: *September 15*

== Paper submission ==

Papers submitted to HLPP2017 must describe original research results and 
must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. 
Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJPP Latex macro package 
using the single column option (\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}), 
and submitted via the EasyChair Conference System 
<https://easychair.org/my/conference.cgi?conf=hlpp2017>, as one PDF 
file. The strict page limit for initial submission and camera-ready 
version is 18 pages in the aforementioned format. Each paper will 
receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the program committee. 
Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical 
clarity, and quality of presentation. At least one author of each 
accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2017 symposium and present the 
paper. After the symposium, you have ample time to revise the paper 
incorporating potential comments and remarks of your colleagues.

== Proceedings and Journal Special Issues ==

Accepted papers will be distributed as informal draft proceedings during 
the symposium. Additionally, accepted papers will be published in a 
special issue of a renowned international journal. Depending on their 
subject, some papers will be selected for the *International Journal of 
Parallel Programming* (Springer), while others will be selected for 
*Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience*(Wiley). We expect 
the special issues to appear online-first by the end of 2017 and the 
printed edition in 2018.
