The International Workshop on Performance, Portability and
Productivity in HPC (P3HPC) provides a forum for researchers and
application developers to discuss their successes and failures in
tackling the compelling problems that lie at the intersection of
performance, portability and productivity (P3).

We are particularly interested in research that addresses the
complexities of real-life applications and/or realistic workloads, the
composability challenges arising from the use of bespoke solutions,
and the desire to “future-proof” applications in the long term.  The
topic of P3 touches on many aspects of HPC software development, and
we expect the workshop program to reflect a wide range of experiences
and perspectives, including those of compiler, language and runtime
experts; performance engineers; and domain scientists.

Topics of Interest
Authors are invited to submit novel research from all areas concerned
with performance, portability, and productivity.  Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
- Extensions to HPC languages (e.g. C/C++, Fortran), libraries and runtimes
- Directives, libraries, domain-specific languages, and other abstractions
- Algorithmic and application development techniques
- Techniques specifically designed for use with legacy codes
- Techniques for preparing applications for future architectural changes
- Techniques for measuring and evaluating the success of P3 approaches
- Case studies using state-of-the-art P3 tools and techniques

Important Dates
- May 31: Submissions Open
- August 26: Submission Deadline
- September 16: Author Notification
- October 11: Camera-Ready Submissions
- November 22: P3HPC Workshop

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit original papers of no more than 10
pages, including tables, figures, and your appendices, but not
including references nor the reproducibility appendix.  Papers must be
at least 6 pages long, not including references and the
reproducibility appendix.  All submissions should be formatted
according to the IEEE Conference Proceedings format (see

Papers should be submitted electronically via Linklings:

Full papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore digital archive in
collaboration with IEEE TCHPC.

Reproducibility Initiative
The P3HPC workshop will follow a reproducibility initiative similar to
SC technical papers: authors are encouraged to submit an appendix of
no more than two pages detailing available artifacts and any steps
taken to increase the trustworthiness of their results (see

The nature of performance portability involves demonstrated
performance across multiple architectures, hence authors should
describe artifact components across all architectures employed, such
as compiler, runtime and application configurations.  Authors should
clearly document and explain the reasoning behind such configuration
differences, to assist future researchers seeking to reproduce their
experiments on future architectures.
