IWOMP 2019 - 15th International Workshop on OpenMP

"OpenMP: Conquering the Full Hardware Spectrum"

September 11-13, 2019
University of Auckland
Auckland, New Zealand

== Background

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 5.0 specification is a major step forward for the
OpenMP language, with the introduction of significant improvements and
many new features that will be useful for highly parallel and complex
applications. OpenMP now covers the entire hardware spectrum from
embedded and accelerator devices to multicore systems with
shared-memory. With these evolutionary advances, 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unpublished technical papers that detail innovative, original research
and development related to OpenMP.

== Topics

All topics related to OpenMP are of interest, including OpenMP
performance analysis and modeling, 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 2019 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 or
real-time processing.

== Paper Submission and Registration

Submitted papers for review should be limited to 12 pages and follow
LNCS guidelines. Submission deadline is April 24, 2019. Submit your
paper to: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwomp2019. Authors
of accepted papers will be asked to prepare a final paper of up to 15
pages. As in previous years, IWOMP 2019 will publish formal
proceedings of the accepted papers in Springer Verlag's LNCS series.

== Important Dates

Paper Submission Deadline:    April 24, 2019 (AOE)
