Abstract Deadline:  June 15, 2017




Sponsored by:

  OpenMP ARB



  OpenMPCon is the annual OpenMP Developers conference organized by the

OpenMP community, for the community.  OpenMPCon takes place 18-20 September 

in Stony Brook, NY, USA and will focus on the practical usage of OpenMP 

and other directive based languages, to deliver high-performance computing 

through parallel processing.



  Submissions are requested from industry experts, developers, and academia

on all topics related to OpenMP, including but not limited to: application

development from any discipline, algorithms, performance analysis, tools and

libraries, optimization, verification, portability and education. Sessions

can be in the form of technical presentations, tutorials and workshops,

posters, or panel discussions.  


  All submissions should be in the form of short abstracts (minimum 300 

words, maximum 1,000 words) and must be handed in as a PDF document.  

All submissions will go through a peer review process. Session material

will be posted on the OpenMPCon website and will be available to conference



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * How you Use OpenMP

  * Guidelines of OpenMP

  * Tips, tricks, gotchas of OpenMP

  * Performance of OpenMP

  * Conformance, build, options of OpenMP compilers/runtime implementations

  * Latest OpenMP and older releases and how it changes life for users

  * Accelerator, and heterogeneous computing (GPUs, accelerators, FPGA,


  * Tasks, task groups and task dependencies

  * Scientific, HPC workloads

  * Commercial, analytic workload

  * Oil and Gas use of OpenMP

  * Research on OpenMP (although a good research paper should be submitted
