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

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
+ Libraries
+ 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 precisely state the paper’s key contributions and results towards
addressing the problem. Submissions should strive to be accessible to both,
broad audiences, as well as experts in the area.

*Paper Submission*:
All submissions are due August 25, 2018 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 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:
(ACM SIGPLAN policy). Detailed instructions for electronic submission and
other important ACM SIGPLAN Policies will be posted on the PPoPP conference
web sitehttp://ppopp18.sigplan.org

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

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.
This date may be up to one month prior to the first day of the conference.
Therefore, the official publication date, also known as the official public
dissemination date, may be as early as January 2018. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work.
