[CFP] LCPC 2020 - Call for Papers

The 33rd Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC) 2020
will be hosted by Stony Brook University, NY, USA on October 14-16, 2020.

Note: Due to coronavirus pandemic, this conference will be held online only.


Since its inception in 1988, the Workshop on Languages and Compilers for
Parallel Computing (LCPC) has been a leading venue for cutting-edge research
on all aspects of parallel programming systems -- from parallel programming
models, languages, compilers, runtimes and tools, to results related to new
parallel applications or systems. Its scope is particularly broad: it
encompasses foundational results, as well as practical experience reports and
bold new ideas for future systems.

In addition to its traditional themes in parallel programming systems,
relevant topics include advances in programming systems for heterogeneous and
reconfigurable computing, mobile computing, IoT and cloud computing, and
papers in data analytics, machine learning and cognitive computing. Along with
research in new computing domains such as analog, neuromorphic and quantum
computing, LCPC particularly encourages submissions in areas that are enabled
or enhanced by parallelism and work that combines scientific computing with
data analytics and machine learning.

Specific topics of interest for LCPC 2020 include, but are not limited to:

* Compilers for parallel computing, including heterogeneous systems
* Static, dynamic and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
* Just-in-time compiling, including for scripting languages
* Parallel programming models and languages for traditional and emerging
* Languages and tools for programming quantum computing systems
* Formal methods in analysis, verification, and software engineering of
  parallel programs
* Intermediate representations for general-purpose and domain-specific
* Parallel runtime systems and libraries
* Performance analysis and debugging tools for parallel programs
* Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
* Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded Systems, Bio,
* Fault tolerance in parallel systems
* Parallel communication idioms and libraries (e.g. MPI, OpenSHMEM)

LCPC 2020 invites the following kinds of papers in Springer Verlag LNCS

* Full papers of up to 15 pages on innovative and original research that
  describe new research contributions
* Short papers of up to 8 pages on preliminary results, surveys,
  demonstrations, or visions for future research

Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be pre-workshop, informal
proceedings as well as post-workshop proceedings in Springer Verlag's LNCS
series. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the Springer
copyright form. Instructions for preparing papers for the formal proceedings
will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.

For detailed instructions please see


LNCS templates can be downloaded from Springer (LaTex2e class, LaTex2e sample
and MS Word).

Submission and reviewing timeline:

* Submission opens: July 1, 2020
* Submission deadline: July 30, 2020
* Author notification: September 4, 2020
* Final pre-workshop papers due: September 25, 2020
