*12th International Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and
Applications (HLPP-2019)*

July 3-5, 2019, Linköping, Sweden


-- Paper submission deadline extended to 25 april (final)
-- Publication in post-symposium special issue in IJPP (Springer)
-- Open poster session (abstracts due 1 june), see below for details

Aims and scope of HLPP:

As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter-
and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software
industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel
programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are
currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message
passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms.
Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and
have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous

Since 2001 the HLPP<http://hlpp.eu> series of workshops/symposia has
been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools
and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general
emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level
performance models. The 12th Symposium on High-Level Parallel
Programming and Applications will be held in Linköping, Sweden.

HLPP 2019 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel
programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to,
the following aspects:

* High-level parallel programming and performance models (e.g. BSP,
CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools
* Declarative parallel programming methodologies based on functional,
logical, data-flow, actor, and other paradigms
* Algorithmic skeletons, patterns, etc. and constructive methods
* High-level parallelism in programming languages and libraries (e.g,
Haskell, Scala, C++, etc.): semantics and implementation
* Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
* Efficient code generation, auto-tuning and optimization for parallel
* Model-driven software engineering for parallel systems
* Domain-specific languages: design, implementation and applications
* High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical
platforms with accelerators, e.g., GPU, Many-core, DSP, VPU, FPGA, etc.
* High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured
* Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
* Teaching experience with high-level tools and methods

Papers submitted to HLPP-2019 must describe original research results
and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere
else. For formatting and submission see

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the
program committee and designated reviewers. Papers will be selected
based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity, and quality of
presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register
for the HLPP 2019 symposium and present the paper. Informal proceedings
with the camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be available at
the symposium. After the symposium, there will be ample time to revise
the paper incorporating reviewer comments. Authors of accepted and
presented papers will be invited to submit a revised version of their
paper for publication in a special issue of /International Journal of
Parallel Programming/ (Springer).

HLPP-2019 will also include tutorials and an open poster session for
ongoing (esp., European) research projects related to the scope of the
