Compiler-assisted Correctness Checking and Performance Optimization
for HPC (C3PO) Workshop co-located with ISC, Frankfurt, Germany.
June 25, 2020

C3PO is a new workshop at the intersection of compilers/translators,
HPC middleware, and HPC applications. Practical compiler-enabled
programming environments, applied analysis methodologies, and
end-to-end toolchains are crucial to performance portability in the
exascale era. The workshop brings together researchers with a shared
interest in applying compilation and source-to-source translation
methodologies to enhance parallel programming, including explicit
programming models such as MPI, OpenMP, and hybrid models.

Original papers will identify and solve challenges in the tradeoffs of
scalability, performance, predictability, correctness, productivity,
and portability on-node and at massive scale. Strong-scaling,
weak-scaling, and hybrid-scaling solutions assisted, augmented, and/or
enabled by compiler technology are in scope.

We recognize that there are standard static analysis technologies
(dataflow analysis, polyhedral analysis, etc); this workshop seeks
innovative applications of such technologies to derive enhanced
utility in parallel programs that are generalizable beyond a single
case study or narrow application.

The workshop solicits contributions in the following (but not limited
to) topics:
* Automatic parallelization
* Compilation for heterogeneous systems
* Compiler enabled optimization
* Compilation techniques for correctness checking of parallel software
* Cross-languages translation
* Modernization of legacy codes
* Source code instrumentation
* Source-to-source analysis/transformations
* Static analysis
* Static/dynamic interaction


C3PO solicits two kinds of papers. Full papers present novel and
original research and are limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS
format. Short papers report on interesting new ideas, work with
promising/early results, or empirical studies and are limited to 6
pages in Springer LNCS format.

The review process is double blind. Each submission will receive at
least three reviews.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format on the submission website. The
organizers will make informal proceedings available online before the
conference. Authors may submit a revised version of the paper after
the workshop for printed proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will
be required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for
preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of
accepted papers.

Important Dates

Paper submissions due: April 8, 2020
Notification of acceptance: May 1, 2020
Pre-conference version: May 31, 2020
Camera-ready papers due: July 5, 2020

Looking forward to your participation. We hope to see you in Frankfurt
for C3PO 2020!

Best regards,
The C3PO workshop Organizers
