                              CALL FOR PAPERS

                                 ARRAY 2016

                   3rd ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop
                 on Libraries, Languages and Compilers for
                              Array Programming

                           Santa Barbara, CA, USA
                               June 14, 2016


                              part of PLDI 2016

                   37th Annual ACM SIGPLAN Conference on
               Programming Language Design and Implementation
                              June 13-17, 2016



Focus and Description:

Array-oriented programming is a powerful abstraction for compactly
implementing numerically intensive algorithms. Many modern languages now
provide some support for collective array operations, which are used by an
increasing number of programmers (and non-programmers) for data analysis
and scientific computing.

This workshop is intended to bring together researchers from many different
communities, including language designers, library developers, compiler
researchers and practitioners who are working on numeric, array-centric
aspects of programming languages, libraries and methodologies from all
domains: imperative or declarative, object-oriented or not, interpreted
or compiled, strongly typed, weakly typed or untyped.

The aim of this workshop is to foster the cross-pollination of concepts
across domains, projects and research communities and to explore new
directions, such as:

+ Expanding the scope of array programming to encompass a wider range of
   data types and computations,
+ Transparently utilizing parallel hardware (multi-core, SIMD, GPU, FPGA)
   by leveraging the implicitly parallel semantics of array operations,
+ Simplifying the embedding of array constructs within existing languages
   which weren't designed for numerical computing,
+ Connections between array abstractions and other models such as dataflow
   programming, stream programming, and data parallelism,
+ High-level compilation and optimization techniques for array-oriented
+ Compilers, virtual machines and frameworks for array-oriented programming


Important Dates:

Paper submissions:        Fri, Apr  1, 2016 (anywhere on earth)
Notification of authors:  Wed, Apr 27, 2016
Camera-ready copies due:  Fri, May 27, 2016 (anywhere on earth)
Workshop date:            Tue, Jun 14, 2016



Manuscripts may fall into one of the following categories:

+ research papers on any topic related to the focus of the workshop
+ tool descriptions reporting on a tool relevant to the workshop area

Submissions should be 4-8 pages for research papers 4-6 pages for tool

In the case of a tool description the workshop presentation should include
a demo of the tool, and the submission should include a short appendix
summarizing the tool demo. This appendix is for the information of the PC
only, and will not be part of the published paper, nor does it count into
the six page limit.

Clearly mark your submission as either a research paper or a tool
description in the paper's subtitle.

Submissions must be in PDF format printable in black and white on US Letter
sized paper and interpretable by Ghostscript. Papers must adhere to the
standard SIGPLAN conference format: two columns, nine-point font on a
ten-point baseline, with columns 20pc (3.33in) wide and 54pc (9in) tall,
with a column gutter of 2pc (0.33in). A suitable document template for
LaTeX is available at http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/.

Papers must be submitted using EasyChair:


As in previous years, accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital
