** Important dates

* Author Notification: December 2, 2019
* Final Version Due: January 6, 2020

All deadlines are at midnight anywhere on earth (AoE), and are firm.

** Scope

PPoPP is the premier forum for leading work on all aspects of parallel
programming, including theoretical foundations,
techniques, languages, compilers, runtime systems, tools, and practical
experience.  PPoPP Brief Announcements are
expected to discuss thought-provoking research that is not yet mature
enough for publication as a full paper.  The
specific topics of interest for PPoPP Brief Announcements include, but are
not limited to, those listed for the main
conference (see

** Brief Announcement Submission

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference web
site.  Submissions should be no more than 2
pages, including references, using the SIGPLAN proceedings template.
Appendices are not allowed, but the authors may
submit supplementary material, such as proofs or source code; all
supplementary material must be in PDF or ZIP
format. Looking at supplementary material is at the discretion of the
reviewers.  Accepted Brief Announcements will
appear in the PPOPP proceedings.  Please note that publishing a Brief
Announcement does not prevent an author from
publishing a full manuscript on the same topic at a later time.

Submission is double-blind and authors will need to identify any potential
conflicts of interest with the Brief
Announcement Program Committee, as defined in the ACM SIGPLAN policy at
http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Review/.  Submissions should not
reveal the identity of the authors in any
way. Authors should leave out author names and affiliations from the body
of their submission. They should also ensure
that any references to authors' own related work should be in the third
person (e.g., not "We build on our previous work
..." but rather "We build on the work of ...").  The purpose of this
process is to help the PC and external reviewers
come to an initial judgment about the paper without bias, not to make it
impossible for them to discover the authors if
they were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that
weakens the submission or makes the job of
reviewing the paper more difficult. In particular, important background
references should not be omitted or
anonymized. In addition, authors should feel free to disseminate their
ideas or draft versions of their paper as they
normally would. For instance, authors may post drafts of their papers on
the web or give talks on their research
ideas. Authors with further questions on double-blind reviewing are
encouraged to contact the Program Chair by email.

Submissions should be in PDF and printable on both US Letter and A4 paper.
Papers may be resubmitted to the submission
site multiple times up until the deadline, but the last version submitted
before the deadline will be the version
reviewed. Papers that exceed the length requirement, that deviate from the
expected format, or that are submitted late
will be rejected.

** Publication Date

The titles of all accepted Brief Announcements are typically announced
shortly after the author notification date. Note,
however, that this is not the official publication date. The official
publication date is the date the proceedings are
made available in the ACM Digital Library. ACM will make the proceedings
available via the Digital Library for one
month, up to 2 weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for
any patent filings related to published work.

** Presentation and Poster Session Details

At least one author of each Brief Announcement must register for and attend
the conference.  Each accepted Brief Announcement will be expected to give
a short presentation of their work (length TBD) during the conference, and
also to
present a poster during the PPoPP research poster session.
