* UK OpenMP User's Conference*
*Call for Submissions - Deadline January 31, 2018*

Please Note:
The Call for Papers for IWOMP 2018 and OpenMPCon which are taking place in
Barcelona, Spain between 25 - 29 September 2018 will be published shortly.

The inaugural UK OpenMP User's Conference
is intended to become the annual meeting of the growing UK-based community
of developers who use OpenMP, with the aims being to:

   - Share OpenMP programing knowledge and best practise amongst UK users.
   - Network with fellow developers. Help to promote the evolution of the
   OpenMP standard.
   - Provide a feedback channel to the OpenMP Architecture Review Board, so
   that the OpenMP language reflects the needs of the programmers who use it.
   - Enable the exchange of ideas with vendors of OpenMP hardware, software
   and tools.

The event is open to anyone who is interested in participating in, or
contributing to, the UK community of OpenMP developers.  Visit the
Conference Website

Call for Submissions

Submissions, in the form of short abstract (max 500 words) are requested
for consideration by the program committee. Submissions related to any
aspect of using OpenMP are of interest, including (but not limited to):
case-studies of OpenMP use in applications, software tools, programming
methods, debugging, performance analysis, and integration.

Submissions will be evaluated on their merit based on their relevance to
OpenMP users. They do not have to cover new or un-published work, but
should be topical and be appropriate for a technical audience. Three
formats of presentation are available:

   - Technical Presentations and Research Papers (30 min presentations)
   - Tutorials & Workshops (1/4 or 1/2 Day)
   - Posters (Displayed during the breaks)

The deadline for all submissions is: *31st January, 2018 *and should be
made via *EasyChair*
Conference Program

In addition to the technical sessions we will also be scheduling extended
breaks during the event to ensure that there is plenty of time to meet and
network with other member of the OpenMP community to discuss and share
knowledge and experience of parallel programming with OpenMP. There will
also be  a panel discussion to include members of the OpenMP ARB, vendors
and most importantly: OpenMP users.

The following sessions have already been scheduled to provide an outline of
the program.  *Please don't let these limit your submissions! * Anything
that is related to OpenMP will be considered as long as its of a technical
nature (not marketing).

*Monday Tutorials & Panel Discussion:*

   - A Hands-On-Introduction to OpenMP (all day):
   - Advanced OpenMP: Performance and 4.5 Features  (half day)
   - Programming Your GPU with OpenMP: A Hands-On Introduction  (half day)
   - Panel Discussion: OpenMP is Twenty. Where is it Going? Including an
   opportunity for users to put questions to the OpenMP ARB members present.

There will be a Conference Dinner on the Monday evening followed by
networking at local pub.

The following invited talks have currently been confirmed and additional
talks will be added according to the Call for Submissions above.

   - Keynote: *Thread Alert: Improving Weather Warnings and Forecasts With
   OpenMP* by Paul Selwood, Manager of HPC Optimisation, Met Office
   - Abstract: Accurate weather forecasts are hugely important to a
   nation's economy. They help keep transport links open, keep electricity
   flowing and enable emergency response to extreme weather events. The
   Unified Model is a key component in the Met Office's ability to generate
   hundreds of forecasts every day to tight operational timescale. It is
   constantly being improved with more accurate and computationally expensive
   physics. OpenMP has been an important tool in meeting the scalability
   challenge this has presented. This presentation will describe the Unified
   Model's journey with OpenMP. This has taken it from an enabler of
   hyperthreads, through I/O acceleration to being a fully-fledged part of the
   model's parallelism strategy. The lessons learned during this process will
   be shared, along with some recent experiences with tasking to mitigate MPI
   load imbalance.
   - Invited Talk: *OpenMP Gotchas* by Dr Mark Bull, Architect (Research
   and Training), EPCC
   - Invited Talk: *OpenMP 4.5 Performance Portability* by Simon
   McIntosh-Smith, Prof. in High Performance Computing, University of Bristol
   Conference Dinner There will be a conference dinner on the evening of
   Monday 21st May.
