                                 FHPC 2018
    7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing
             September 29, 2018, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The 7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing 
(FHPC 2018) is being held as in previous years in conjunction with the 
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2018) together 
with numerous other workshops/symposia, and as a first, colocated with 
Strange Loop, in St. Louis, MO, USA.

Workshop Objectives

The FHPC 2018 workshop seeks to bring together researchers and 
practitioners exploring uses of functional (or more generally, declarative 
or high-level) programming systems or concepts in application domains 
where high performance is essential. The aim of the meeting is to enable 
sharing of results, experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, 
declarative specifications of computationally challenging problems can 
serve as maintainable and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) 
the performance of machine-oriented (low-level) imperative 

All aspects of performance-critical programming and parallel programming 
are in scope for the workshop, irrespective of hardware target. This 
includes both traditional large-scale distributed-memory scientific 
computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with SMPs, 
GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors. FHPC 2018 seeks to encourage a range 
of submissions, focusing on work in progress and facilitating early 
exchange of ideas and open discussion on innovative and/or emerging 
results. Original research, experience reports, case studies, and 
evaluations of programming systems are all welcome. Work on incorporation 
of functional programming concepts into more traditional (imperative) HPC 
applications is explicitly solicited.

Papers, Presentations, and Demonstrations

The refereed paper deadline has passed.  In the workshop spirit, the 
refereed paper presentation program is being augmented to include less 
formally reviewed presentations in the form of talks not based on accepted 
papers, and software demonstrations.   Topic areas of interest include 
research or development in progress, experience reports, and 
position/white paper statements.

Proposals will be subject to a mild reviewing process to insure relevance 
and general interest to FHPC.  We expect time slots to be between one-half 
and one hour.

Prospective presenters are requested to submit an abstract describing 
their proposed contribution via the paper submission site.  The deadline 
is July 29, 2018, midnight anywhere on Earth, but the PC reserves the 
right to accept proposals at any time after submission.  As such, early 
submission is strongly encouraged.

Important Dates

   - Submission Deadline: Midnight July 29, 2018 Anywhere on Earth.
   - Notification: early-mid August (TBD)
   - FHPC 2018: Saturday Sept. 29, 2018.
