The Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC)
has been since its founding in 1988, a leading venue for research on
parallel languages and compilers and many related topics related to
parallel computing including parallelizing compilers, parallel
programming models, runtime systems, and tools with a diverse domain
of application. The wide scope of the workshop is unique in that spans
the spectrum from foundational principles to practical experience, and
from early ideas to polished results. LCPC encourages submissions that
go outside its original scope of scientific computing to diverse areas
that are enable or enhanced by the power of parallel systems such as
mobile computing, big data, relevant aspects of machine learning, data
centers, cognitive computing, etc. LCPC strongly encourages personal
interaction and technical discussions along the initial material
presented at the workshop and published its revised proceedings in
LNCS later, after the meeting.

Specific topics of LCPC 2018 include:
Compilers for parallel computing
Static, dynamic, and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
Parallel programming models and languages
Formal analysis and verification of parallel programs
Parallel runtime systems and libraries
Performance analysis and debugging tools for concurrency
Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded
Systems, Bio, IoT.
Software engineering for parallel programs
Fault tolerance for parallel systems
Parallel programming and compiling for heterogeneous systems

LCPC 2018 solicits two types of submissions:
Research papers that report on original, novel research. The length is
limited to 15 pages in the Springer LNCS format.
Blue Sky Ideas papers that describe visionary ideas, long term
challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the
current mainstream topics of the field and which will provoke
discussion or debate. The length is limited to 6 pages in the Springer
LNCS format.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be a pre-workshop,
informal proceedings as well as a post-workshop one in LNCS series of
Springer Verlag. Authors of accepted papers and posters will be
required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for
preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of
accepted papers.

For detailed instructions please see:

LNCS templates can be downloaded from Springer (LaTex2e class, LaTex2e
sample, and MS Word).

Bibliography is unlimited and reviewing is double blind (so no author names !)

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission web site.

Submission deadline: July 30, 2018 AoE
Notification to authors: August 28, 2018
Final pre-workshop papers due: October 1, 2018
Final papers due: December 10, 2018
