                               CALL FOR PAPERS


        The Fourth Workshop on the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure in HPC

                       November 13th, 2017, Denver, CO
                             In conjunction with
                    SC17: The International Conference for
                   High Performance Computing, Networking,
                             Storage and Analysis


The fourth annual LLVM in HPC Workshop, held in conjunction with SC17 and in
cooperation with SIGHPC.

LLVM, winner of the 2012 ACM Software System Award, has become an integral
part of the software-development ecosystem for optimizing compilers,
dynamic-language execution engines, source-code analysis and transformation
tools, debuggers and linkers, and a whole host of programming-language and
toolchain-related components. Now heavily used in both academia and
industry, where it allows for rapid development of production-quality tools,
LLVM is increasingly used in work targeted at high-performance computing.
Research in, and implementation of, program analysis, compilation,
execution, and profiling has clearly benefited from the availability of a
high-quality, freely-available infrastructure on which to build.

This fourth annual workshop will feature contributed papers and invited
talks focusing on recent developments, from both academia and industry, that
build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
   * Compiler design for highly-concurrent/parallel environments
   * Compilation techniques targeted at high-performance-computing codes
   * Programming-language implementation techniques enabling high 
     and high productivity
   * Embedding compilation and dynamic execution at scale
   * Tools for optimization, profiling, and feedback
   * Source code transformation and analysis
   * Gap analyses of open-source LLVM-based tools

NEW THIS YEAR: The workshop will hold a lightning-talk session. Please
contribute to making this session both vibrant and informative! An abstract
and one-page summary is required for consideration.


   * Paper submissions due: September 1, 2017
   * Notification to authors of acceptance: September 28, 2017
   * Camera-ready papers due: October 11, 2017
   * Workshop takes place: November 13, 2017

Please see the SC17 home page (http://sc17.supercomputing.org/) for
registration deadlines and other information associated with the parent


We are using EasyChair to manage submissions:


The proceedings will be archived in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE
Xplore through SIGHPC.
