Call for Papers for LCPC 2017
The 30th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing

October 11-13, 2017
College Station, Texas
Co-located with CnC-2017

The Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC)
has been since its founding in 1988, a leading venue for research on
parallel languages and compilers and many related topics related to
parallel computing including parallelizing compilers, parallel
programming models, runtime systems, and tools with a diverse domain
of application.  The wide scope of the workshop is unique in that spans
the spectrum from foundational principles to practical experience,
and from early ideas to polished results.  LCPC encourages submissions
that go outside its original scope of scientific computing to diverse
areas that are  enable or enhanced by the power of parallel systems
such as mobile computing, big data, relevant aspects of machine
learning,  data centers, cognitive computing, etc.  LCPC strongly
encourages personal interaction and technical discussions along the
initial material presented at the workshop and published its revised
proceedings in LNCS later, after the meeting.

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of LCPC, which is a
testament to the quality and impact of the published work in this
venue. It also shows the dedication of its core participants who have
persevered in the development of parallel computing while it was going
through its ups and down.

After 14 years LCPC comes back to Texas A&M University in College
Station, TX, to find the same pleasant October weather but a much
larger and exciting venue.  In addition to a strong program of
contributed papers, LCPC'17 will feature invited speakers and an
exciting panel that will bring together the veterans as well as the
rising stars of parallel computing.  LCPC will co-located with the CnC

Specific topics of LCPC 2017 include:

-- Compilers for parallel computing
-- Static, dynamic, and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
-- Parallel programming models and languages
-- Formal analysis and verification of parallel programs
-- Parallel runtime systems and libraries
-- Performance analysis and debugging tools for concurrency
-- Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
-- Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded
    Systems, Bio, IoT.
-- Software engineering for parallel programs
-- Fault tolerance for parallel systems
-- Parallel programming and compiling for heterogeneous systems

LCPC 2017 solicits two types of submissions.

-- Research papers that report on original, novel research.  The length
is limited to 15 pages in the Springer LNCS format.

-- Blue Sky Ideas papers that describe visionary ideas, long term
challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the
current mainstream topics of the field and which will provoke
discussion or debate.  The length is limited to 6 pages in the
Springer LNCS format.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be a pre-workshop,
informal proceedings as well as a post-workshop one in LNCS series of
Springer Verlag.  Authors of accepted papers and posters will be
required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for
preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of
accepted papers.

All submissions must be made electronically. Submission instructions
will be found on the LCPC website.

Submission Due: 11:59pm Sunday August 1, 2017 (Any Time on Earth)
Notification Date: September 1, 2017
Final Pre-Workshop Papers Due: September 30, 2017.
