*3rd International Workshop on Performance Portable Programming Models for
Accelerators (P^3MA)**http://www.csm.ornl.gov/workshops/p3ma2018/cfp.html*

*Frankfurt, Germany June 28, 2018*

*co-located with ISC 2018 http://www.isc-hpc.com/ <http://www.isc-hpc.com/>*
As the HPC community approaches exascale platforms, heterogeneity in
compute and memory hierarchies is in most cases either remaining or
increasing in complexity. High-level programming models aim to provide
scientific applications a solution to maintain expected performance on
diversifying systems with a minimal loss of portability or programmer
productivity. Directives represent a traditional approach to high-level
portability abstractions, with other successful strategies including Domain
Specific Languages (DSLs), C++ metaprogramming, and runtime APIs. Although
these approaches attempt to introduce abstraction without performance
penalty, challenges remain with their designs, implementations, and
ease-of-use on rapidly evolving hardware and diverse memory subsystems.

Programming methods to address these concerns are continuously being
developed within standards committees for C++, OpenCL, OpenMP, OpenACC, and
various DSLs. This workshop is designed to assess improved features of
programming models designed for performance portability and productivity on
heterogeneous systems, their implementations, and experiences with their
deployment in HPC applications.

As in the past years, this workshop will provide a forum to bring together
researchers and developers to examine heterogeneous computing and how it
has been evolving across an increasingly diverse set of accelerated

*Topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited
    •    Experience porting applications using high-level models focused on
performance portability and productivity
    •    Hybrid heterogeneous or many-core programming with models such as
threading, message passing, and PGAS
    •    Continuation-style and asynchronous task-based programming
    •    Scientific libraries designed for performance portability on
heterogeneous systems
    •    Experiences in implementing compilers for performance portable
programming on current and emerging architectures
    •    Low level communications APIs or runtimes that support accelerator
    •    Extensions to programming models needed to support multiple memory
hierarchies and accelerators
    •    Performance modeling and evaluation tools
    •    Power/energy studies
    •    Auto-tuning or optimization strategies
    •    Benchmarks and validation suites

Important Deadlines:
April 03, 2018: Paper submission deadline
May 14, 2018: Paper acceptance notification
June 03, 2018: Camera ready paper
June 28, 2018: Workshop

*Papers submission guidelines:*
Abstracts and papers need to be submitted via Easy Chair:

After the reviewing process, the accepted papers will be published in the
[Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)](
http://www.springer.com/us/computer-science/lncs) volumes.

We only accept paper submissions which are formatted correctly in [LNCS
(single column format) using either the LaTeX document class or Word
template. For details on the author guidelines, please refer to Springer's
website. Incorrectly formatted papers will be excluded from the reviewing

Papers submissions are required to be within 18 pages in the above
mentioned LNCS style. This includes all figures and references.

*Review process:*
All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. The review process is not
double blind, i.e., authors will be known to reviewers. All submitted
manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and
interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers may NOT
have appeared in or be under consideration for another conference, workshop
or journal.
