Final paper due: January 15, 2018
PPoPP is the premier forum for leading work on all aspects of parallel
programming, including theoretical foundations, techniques, languages,
compilers, runtime systems, tools, and practical experience. In the
context of the symposium, “parallel programming” encompasses work on
concurrent and parallel systems (multicore, multi-threaded,
heterogeneous, clustered, and distributed systems; grids; datacenters;
clouds; and large scale machines). Given the rise of parallel
architectures in the consumer market (desktops, laptops, and mobile
devices) and data centers, PPoPP is particularly interested in work
that addresses new parallel workloads and issues that arise out of
extreme-scale applications or cloud platforms, as well as techniques
and tools that improve the productivity of parallel programming or
work towards improved synergy with such emerging architectures.

Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems
Concurrent data structures
Development, analysis, or management tools
Fault tolerance for parallel systems
Formal analysis and verification
Middleware for parallel systems
Parallel algorithms
Parallel applications and frameworks
Parallel programming languages
Parallel programming theory and models
Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud
Performance analysis, debugging and optimization
Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
Software engineering for parallel programs
Software for heterogeneous architectures
Software productivity for parallel programming
Synchronization and concurrency control
Papers should report on original research relevant to parallel
programming and should contain enough background materials to make
them accessible to the entire parallel programming research community.
Papers describing experience should indicate how they illustrate
general principles or lead to new insights; papers about parallel
programming foundations should indicate how they relate to practice.

PPoPP submissions will be evaluated based on their technical merit and
accessibility. Submissions should clearly motivate the importance of
the problem being addressed, compare to the existing body of work on
the topic, and explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key
contributions and results towards addressing the problem. Submissions
should strive to be accessible both to a broad audience and to experts
in the area.

Paper Submission: All submissions are due August 25, 2017 and must be
made electronically through the conference web site and include an
abstract (100–400 words), author contact information, the full list of
authors and their affiliations. Full paper submissions must be in PDF
formatted printable on A4 and US letter size paper. No extensions will
be granted.

Papers should contain a maximum of 10 pages of text (in a typeface no
smaller than 10 point) or figures, NOT INCLUDING references. There is
no page limit for references and they must include the name of all
authors (not {et al.}). Submission is double blind and authors will
need to identify any potential conflicts of interest with PC and
Extended Review Committee members, as defined here:
http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Review/ (ACM SIGPLAN
policy). Detailed instructions for electronic submission and other
important ACM SIGPLAN Policies are posted here: Submission Guidelines.

PPoPP’18 uses two review rounds. Authors of papers that are not
considered for Round II will be informed by October 25. All
submissions that are not accepted for regular presentations will
automatically be considered for posters. Two-page summaries of posters
will be included in the conference proceedings (authors must decide by
December 15 if they want to submit a poster).

For additional information regarding paper submissions, please contact
the Program Chair, Thomas R. Gross thomas.gross at inf.ethz.ch.

Artifact evaluation has been included in recent PPoPP conferences and
will be continued in PPoPP 2018. Authors of accepted papers will be
invited to formally submit their supporting materials to the Artifact
Evaluation process. The Artifact Evaluation process is run by a
separate committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support
the work described in the papers. This submission is voluntary and
will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. Papers
that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully will
receive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Authors
of accepted papers are encouraged (but not obliged) to make these
materials publicly available upon publication of the proceedings, by
including them as source materials in the ACM Digital Library.

The titles of all accepted papers are typically announced shortly
after the author notification date (around mid-December 2017). Note,
however, that this is not the official publication date. The official
publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the
ACM Digital Library. ACM will make the proceedings available via the
Digital Library for one month, up to 2 weeks prior to the first day of
the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for
any patent filings related to published work.
