*4th International Workshop on Performance Portable Programming models for
Manycore or Accelerators (P^3MA) <https://p3ma19.ornl.gov>Frankfurt,
GermanyJune 20, 2019co-located with ISC 2019 <https://www.isc-hpc.com/>
<http://www.isc-hpc.com/> April 07, 2019: Paper submission
deadlinePerformance portable approaches and implementations are becoming
increasingly crucial for the application developers to make the best use of
modern HPC architectures. With diverging architectural designs, it can be a
challenge to develop high-level abstractions that can expose all the rich
features of the hardware to the programmer, especially with the
introduction of heterogeneous architectures. Unfortunately if the software
framework fails to expose these features to the programmer, the end
solution can place a serious limitation to the maximum performance that can
be achieved. The constant struggle to find the optimal abstraction to give
adequate control to the programmer without overwhelming them with low level
details is the key in how well an approach is adopted. There are a number
of leading approaches designed to address these issues. These approaches
include libraries, directive-based standardized programming models such as
OpenMP and OpenACC, Kokkos, and DSLs. Although these programming approaches
are evolving to address the complexities of evolving hardware, there are
still several opportunities to improve their design and implementations
that can lead to better adaptability and easy-of-use of these approaches by
application developers. Hardware systems are taking diverse routes, some
systems continue to demonstrate heterogeneity such as Summit and Sierra and
some not so much such as Riken’s or UK’s Isambard that is based on Arm
processors. This workshop will provide a forum to bring together
researchers and developers to discuss community’s proposals and solutions
to performance portability. Topics of interest for workshop submissions
include (but are not limited to): - Experience porting applications using
high-level models focused on performance portability and productivity-
Hybrid heterogeneous or many-core programming with models such as
threading, message passing, and PGAS- Continuation-style and asynchronous
task-based programming- Scientific libraries designed for performance
portability on heterogeneous systems- Experiences in implementing compilers
for performance portable programming on current and emerging architectures-
Low level communications APIs or runtimes that support manycore and
accelerator architectures- Extensions to programming models needed to
support multiple memory hierarchies, multiple devices, manycores, and
accelerators- Performance modeling and evaluation tools- Power/energy
studies- Auto-tuning or optimization strategies- Benchmarks and validation

process:All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. The review process is
not double blind, i.e., authors will be known to reviewers. All submitted
manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and
interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers may NOT
have appeared in or be under consideration for another conference, workshop
