Call for Submissions - OpenMPCon 2019

International OpenMP Developers Conference


September 9-11, 2019

University of Auckland | New Zealand







OpenMPCon is organized by the OpenMP community for the community, so we

invite the community to present. We want to hear how you use OpenMP, and

others want to learn from your experience. Give a tutorial, present a

poster, give a technical talk and describe your work, show a crazy idea, or

just hang out.



Important Dates:

- Call for Submissions: Now Open

- Deadline for the submission of abstracts: Friday June 7, 2019

- Author Notifications: Friday June 28, 2019 (Provisional)

- Presentation materials: At the event.


Submit via Easychair:




Who should submit?


You. If you have something interesting to share with the OpenMP community

then consider presenting. Our goal is to create the best program that we can

and we feel that there must be room for both seasoned presenters and new

voices. Do you have something to say? Submit your idea in the form of a

short abstract and if accepted you can have your own session at OpenMPCon.

Submissions are requested from industry experts, developers, and academia on

all topics related to OpenMP, including but not limited to: application

development from any discipline, algorithms, performance analysis, tools and

libraries, optimization, verification, portability and education.

Submissions can be in the form of:

- Technical presentations

- Tutorials and workshops

- Posters

- Panel discussions



What types of submissions are we looking for?


We target a technical audience so we are looking for technical sessions or

posters that are likely to appeal to OpenMP developers.  OpenMPCon

submissions are not limited to un-published research, but should be topical

and of a technical nature.  If you are looking to submit unpublished

research papers we would recommend that in the first instance you apply to

the IWOMP Conference.

All submissions should be in the form of short abstracts (minimum 300 words,

maximum 1,000 words) and must be made as PDF documents via the easychair

system. All submissions will go through a peer review process. Session

material will be posted on the OpenMPCon website and will be available to

conference attendees.





Generally, we are interested in any OpenMP-related topics but if you need

some inspiration take a look at the topics list below - but you're certainly

not limited to these ideas!

- How you Use OpenMP

- Guidelines of OpenMP

- Tips, tricks, gotchas of OpenMP

- Performance of OpenMP

- Latest OpenMP and older releases and how it changes life for users

- Accelerator, and heterogeneous computing (GPUs, accelerators, FPGA, etc.)

- Tasks, task groups and task dependencies

- Scientific, HPC workloads

- Commercial, analytic workload

- Oil and Gas use of OpenMP

- Research on OpenMP (although a good research paper should be submitted to

networking domains for OpenMP

- Comparisons with other parallel languages

- Future of OpenMP

- Reduction

- Base language (C++, C, Fortran) with OpenMP
