                                 CALL FOR PAPERS


          The Sixth Workshop on the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure in HPC

                                  November 16th
                               In conjunction with
                      SC20: The International Conference for
                     High Performance Computing, Networking,
                              Storage, and Analysis


The sixth annual LLVM in HPC Workshop, held in conjunction with SC20 and
in cooperation with TCHPC.

LLVM, winner of the 2012 ACM Software System Award, has become an
integral part of the software-development ecosystem for optimizing
compilers, dynamic-language execution engines, source-code analysis and
transformation tools, debuggers and linkers, and a whole host of
programming-language and toolchain-related components. Now heavily used
in both academia and industry, where it allows for rapid development of
production-quality tools, LLVM is increasingly used in work targeted at
high-performance computing. Research in, and implementation of, program
analysis, compilation, execution, and profiling has clearly benefited
from the availability of a high-quality, freely-available infrastructure
on which to build.

This sixth annual workshop will feature contributed papers and invited
talks focusing on recent developments, from both academia and industry,
that build on LLVM to advance the state of the art in high-performance
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
   * Compiler design for highly-concurrent/parallel environments
   * Compilation techniques targeted at high-performance-computing codes
   * Programming-language implementation techniques enabling high
     performance and high productivity
   * Embedding compilation and dynamic execution at scale
   * Tools for optimization, profiling, and feedback
   * Source code transformation and analysis
   * Gap analyses of open-source LLVM-based tools

Lightning Talks: The workshop will hold a lightning-talk session. Please
contribute to making this session both vibrant and informative! An
abstract and one-page summary are required for consideration.


   * Paper submissions due: September 1, 2020 (AoE)
   * Notification to authors of acceptance: September 28, 2020
   * Camera-ready papers due: October 8, 2020
   * Workshop takes place: November 16, 2020

Please see the SC20 home page (http://sc20.supercomputing.org/) for
registration deadlines and other information associated with the parent


Please submit papers using the SC20 submissions system
(https://submissions.supercomputing.org/) by selecting the "SC20
Workshop: LLVM-HPC2020 Full Papers" form. Papers must be in IEEE
conference format, should be no more than 12 pages (including references
and figures), and must be at least eight pages long.

To submit a lightning talk, please use the "SC20 Workshop: LLVM-HPC2020
Lightning Talks" form.

Direct links to the submission forms and other information are available
on the workshop web page.


The proceedings will be archived in IEEE Xplore through TCHPC.
Lightning-talk summaries will not be included in the proceedings.
