February 9th 2016 Release

*Compilers for Parallel Computing, Valladolid, Spain, July 6th-8th 2016*

Dear researcher,

We would like to invite you to participate in the 18th International
Workshop on *Compilers for Parallel Computing* (CPC 2016), which we are
organising at the Department of Computer Science,
*University of Valladolid, Spain, on July 6-8 2016.*

*The deadline for abstract submissions is April 30, 2016.*
Compilers for Parallel Computing is unusual: it's a true workshop, with no
published proceedings.  Instead, it's a meeting of international research
specialists, to present research and exchange ideas.  There is no peer
review - we simply aim to select talks that will make an interesting
programme.  Talks can cover work that is in-progress, under review or
already published.

To get an idea of the topics and format, please have a look at the program
from the last couple of CPCs:

   - CPC 2015, London, UK <http://wp.doc.ic.ac.uk/plas/event/cpc15/>
   - CPC 2013, Lyon, France <http://labexcompilation.ens-lyon.fr/cpc2013/>

See http://cpc2016.infor.uva.es/ for more details including how to submit
an abstract, deadline October 27th.

Please mail us on  cpc2016 at infor.uva.es if you have any questions.

*About the workshop*

The CPC series started in Oxford, England (1989) and continued, with an
18-month period, in Paris (1990), Wien (1992), Delft (1993), Malaga (1995),
Aachen (1996), Linkoping (1998),  Aussois (2000),Edinburgh (2001),
Amsterdam (2003), Chiemsee (2004), A Coruna (2006), Lisbon (2007),
Zuerich(2009), Wien (2010), Padova (2012), Lyon (2013) and London (2015).
The main goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers in
compilation and associated areas, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere in
order to exchange ideas and to foster collaboration. The scope encompasses
all areas of parallelism and optimization, from embedded systems to large
scale parallel systems and computational grids. Here is a representative
list of topics:

   *    Parallel programming models and languages.
   *    Parallelization techniques: user-directed, semi-automatic, and
   *    Optimizations for exploiting the memory hierarchy.
   *    Optimizations for exploiting instruction level parallelism.
   *    Optimizations for power consumption.
   *    Profile directed and feedback assisted compilation.
   *    Program analysis and program understanding tools.
   *    High-level specification and domain-specific languages compilation.
   *    Architectural models and performance prediction.
   *    Just-in-time compilation.
   *    Static and dynamic optimization techniques for performance and
   *    Parallel runtime systems.
   *    Continuous program optimization.
   *    Program analysis frameworks and tools.
   *    Back-end code generation and optimizations.
   *    Compilation and optimization for multi-core systems.
   *    Performance modeling and tools for performance tuning.
   *    Architectural support for productive parallelization.

We encourage submission on new and emerging topics and reports on work in
progress. Contributions may contain previously-published material, but
should reflect the authors’ current interest. To enable a wide
representation of research groups, a maximum of two contributions per group
will be accepted.

*Instructions for authors and important dates*
Authors should submit a *one-page PDF* document consisting on a title and
abstract for consideration. The important dates are the following:

   - Submission deadline: *April 30th, 2016* (it would be helpful if you
   could post a placeholder submission as soon as possible).
   - Acceptance decisions will be notified by *May 20th, 2016.*
   - Camera-ready contributions for the local proceedings (see below) must
   be submitted by *June 10th, 2016.*

Abstracts will be evaluated by the organisers with the aim of creating a
relevant and balanced programme of talks. See the CPC webpage (
http://cpc2016.infor.uva.es/instructions-for-authors/) for further details
including how to submit.

Once accepted, the final contribution should be sent in PDF, in one of the
following formats:

   - Springer LNCS template (single column, *limited to 20 pages*)
   - IEEE Tran template (double column, *limited to 10 pages*).

For all general questions related to the CPC 2016 workshop, please contact
cpc2016 at infor.uva.es.


At least one author of each accepted contribution is expected to register
and present the contribution at the workshop.


Accepted contributions will be distributed to participants in local
proceedings, which will be made available electronically to the
participants but will not be published formally. Authors may choose to
except their contributions from the local proceedings by explicitly
notifying the organizers.
