IWOMP 2016 - 12th International Workshop on OpenMP

October 5-7, 2016
Nara, Japan

== Background

For many years, OpenMP has provided a very rich and flexible
programming model for shared memory architectures. OpenMP 4.0 was a
major advance that added two new forms of parallelism and OpenMP 4.5
added substantial improvements for them and other aspects of the
specification. OpenMP now includes a rich set of device constructs to
support heterogeneous systems like GPUs,FPGAs, DSPs, and SIMD
constructs to support vector units in addition to the support for
task-based parallelism that has been present since OpenMP 3.0.

The International Workshop on OpenMP (IWOMP) is an annual workshop
dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of  parallel
programming with OpenMP. It is the premier forum to present and
discuss issues, trends, recent research ideas, and results related to
parallel programming with OpenMP. We solicit submissions of
unpublished technical papers detailing innovative, original research
and development related to OpenMP.

== Topics

All topics related to OpenMP are of interest, including OpenMP
performance analysis and modeling, OpenMP performance and correctness
tools, proposed OpenMP extensions, and OpenMP applications in any
domain (e.g., scientific and numerical computation, video games,
computer graphics, multimedia, information retrieval, optimization,
text processing, data mining, finance, signal and image processing and
machine learning).

Advances in technologies, such as multi-core processors and OpenMP
devices (accelerators such as GPGPUs, DSPs or FPGAs), Multiprocessor
Systems on a Chip (MPSoCs), and recent developments in OpenMP itself
(e.g., devices) present new opportunities and challenges for software
and hardware developers. Recent advances in the C, C++ and Fortran
base languages also offer interesting opportunities and challenges to
the OpenMP programming model. IWOMP 2016 particularly solicits
submissions in these areas as well as ones that discuss how to apply
OpenMP to additional models of parallelism such as event loops.

== Paper Submission and Registration

Submitted papers for review should be limited to 12 pages and follow
LNCS guidelines. Submission deadline is May 18th, 2016. Submit your
paper to: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwomp2016.
Authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare a final paper of
up to 15 pages. As in previous years, IWOMP 2016 will publish formal
proceedings of the accepted papers in Springer Verlag's LNCS series.
