                        Call For Submissions

  Workshop on Domain Specific Languages in High Performance Computing
                          (DSLs in HPC 2020)

                           Oct 28 - 29, 2020
                         Virtual + Esztergom, Hungary


Domain-Specific Languages aim to tackle the performance, portability, 
productivity challenge by restricting their scope to a narrower problem 
domain. The scope of the abstraction used, and the programming API is 
therefore critical in their design. The goal of this workshop is to bring
together researchers and software designers from academia and
industry who are involved in creating and using DSLs for high performance
computing. The objectives of this workshop will be to share the experiences
of the members of this community and to learn the opportunities and 
challenges in the present and the future of DSLs, scientific codes, 
and hardware architectures.

DSLs in HPC 2020 welcomes abstract submissions in a range of areas, 
including but not limited to:

  * Design of DSLs for various applicaiton areas
  * Performance analysis of DSLs and applications
  * Optimisations implemented with the help of DSLs
  * Tools for the development and evaluations of DSLs
