IWOMP 2018 - 14th International Workshop on OpenMP

Evolving OpenMP for Evolving Architectures

  September 26-28, 2018
  Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Technical University of Catalonia,
  Barcelona, Spain


Paper Submission Deadline:   May  4, 2018 (AOE)[extended]
Notification of acceptance:  May 25, 2018
Deadline for final version:  June 8, 2018


     For the last 20 years, OpenMP has provided a portable and 
performant mechanism to program applications for shared memory 
environments. In that time, OpenMP has evolved significantly: the 
appearance of new programming paradigms such as tasking or 
vectorization, or the proliferation of accelerators have influenced this 
popular programming model. The OpenMP 4.5 specification and the latest 
technical reports introduced significant improvements in different key 
features such as its support for heterogeneity and its tasking model, as 
well as new mechanisms for memory affinity and the standardization of 
tools APIs. This evolution as a whole suggests that OpenMP is ready for 
the next generation of applications and the forthcoming cutting-edge 

     The International Workshop on OpenMP (IWOMP) is an annual workshop 
dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel 
programming with OpenMP. It is the premier forum to present and to 
discuss issues, trends, recent research ideas, and results related to 
parallel programming with OpenMP.

     We solicit quality submissions of unpublished technical papers 
detailing innovative, original research and development related to OpenMP.


     All topics related to OpenMP are of interest, including OpenMP 
performance analysis and modelling, OpenMP performance and correctness 
tools, proposed OpenMP extensions, and OpenMP applications in any domain 
(e.g., scientific and numerical computation, video games, computer 
graphics, multimedia, information retrieval, optimization, text 
processing, data mining, finance, signal and image processing and 
machine learning).

     Advances in technologies, such as multi-core processors and OpenMP 
devices (accelerators such as GPGPUs, DSPs or FPGAs), Multiprocessor 
Systems on a Chip (MPSoCs), and recent developments in OpenMP itself 
(e.g., devices) present new opportunities and challenges for software 
and hardware developers. Recent advances in the C, C++ and Fortran base 
languages also offer interesting opportunities and challenges to the 
OpenMP programming model. IWOMP 2018 particularly solicits submissions 
in these areas as well as ones that discuss how to apply OpenMP to 
additional models of parallelism such as event loops.


     Submitted papers for review should be limited to 12 pages and 
follow LNCS guidelines. Submission deadline is April 27, 2018. Submit 
your paper to:


     Authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare a final paper 
of up to 15 pages. As in previous years, IWOMP 2018 will publish formal 
proceedings of the accepted papers in Springer Verlag's LNCS series.
