Call for Submissions and Participation

3rd OpenMP Users Developer Conference

Serving the UK and European OpenMP Community



Join us on the 1-2 December 2020 for online talks, workshops and discussions aimed at furthering the collaboration and knowledge sharing among the growing community of high-performance computing specialist using OpenMP.

You are cordially invited to contribute and participate with a talk, workshop, tutorial, or poster.  Submissions, in the form of a short abstract (max 500 words), are requested for consideration and should be submitted by Friday 30th October.  Submissions do not have to cover new or un-published work but should be topical and appropriate for a technical audience of OpenMP users.

Submissions related to any aspect of using OpenMP are of interest, including but not limited to case-studies of using OpenMP in applications, software tools, OpenMP programming methods, debugging, performance analysis, optimisation, and integration. The conference will also include invited presentations by experts from academia and industry, plus a panel discussion, and will be free to attend.

We are delighted to be working with the Science and Technology Facilities Council to make this year’s event part of the CIUK 2020 (Computing Insights UK) extended programme of activities aimed at users of HPC facilities.  See: https://www.scd.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/CIUK2020.aspx

Although the original concept of the first conference was to bring as many UK OpenMP developers together in person we are delighted that going virtual has provided us with the opportunity to expand our horizons and welcome our European colleagues to join in.
