                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                               FHPC 2017

                    The 6th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
                 Functional High-Performance Computing
                              Oxford, UK
                           September 7, 2017


Co-located with the International Conference on Functional Programming
                              (ICFP 2017)

Submission Deadline: 26th of May 2017 (anywhere on earth)

The FHPC workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring uses
of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level)
programming technology in application domains where high performance
is essential. The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results,
experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative
specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as
maintainable and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the
performance of machine-oriented (low-level) imperative implementations.

All aspects of performance critical programming and parallel
programming are in-scope for the workshop, irrespective of hardware
target. This includes both traditional large-scale scientific
computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with
SMPs, GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors. It is becoming apparent
that radically new and well founded methodologies for programming such
systems are required to address their inherent complexity and to
reconcile execution performance with programming productivity.
Experience reports are also welcome.


FHPC 2017 seeks to encourage a range of submissions, focusing on work
in progress and facilitating early exchange of ideas and open discussion
on innovative and/or emerging results. To this end submissions should
take the form of short (maximum 6 page) papers. Accepted papers will
be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
This year FHPC will introduce an (optional) artifact-evaluation session,
with the intent that selected artifacts will receive additional 
time in a dedicated slot during the workshop.

  * Paper submissions due: 26th of May, 2017 (anywhere on earth)
  * Artifact submissions due: 9th of June, 2017 (optional)
  * Author notification: 23rd of June, 2017
  * Final copy due: 15th of July, 2017

Submitted papers must be in portable document format (PDF), formatted
according to the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines (2 column, 9pt format).
See http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm for more information
and style files. Papers should be no longer than 6 pages.

Contributions to FHPC 2017 should be submitted via Easychair, at the
following URL:

The FHPC workshops adhere to the ACM SIGPLAN policies regarding
programme committee contributions and republication. Any paper
submitted must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy. PC member
submissions are welcome, but will be reviewed to a higher standard.


AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date
may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work.

Travel Support:

Student attendees with accepted papers can apply for a SIGPLAN PAC
grant to help cover travel expenses. PAC also offers other support, such
as for child-care expenses during the meeting or for travel costs for
companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities, as well as for
travel from locations outside of North America and Europe. For details
on the PAC programme, see its web page (http://www.sigplan.org/PAC.htm).
