PPoPP is the premier forum for leading work on all aspects of parallel
programming, including theoretical foundations, techniques, languages,
compilers, runtime systems, tools, and practical experience. In the
context of the symposium, “parallel programming” encompasses work on
concurrent and parallel systems (multicore, multi-threaded,
heterogeneous, clustered, and distributed systems; grids; data
centers; clouds; and large scale machines). Given the rise of parallel
architectures in the consumer market (desktops, laptops, and mobile
devices) and data centers, PPoPP is particularly interested in work
that addresses new parallel workloads and issues that arise out of
extreme-scale applications or cloud platforms, as well as techniques
and tools that improve the productivity of parallel programming or
work towards improved synergy with such emerging architectures.

Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems
- Concurrent data structures
- Development, analysis, or management tools
- Fault tolerance for parallel systems
- Formal analysis and verification
- High-performance / scientific computing
- Libraries for parallel computing
- Middleware for parallel systems
- Parallel algorithms
- Parallel applications and frameworks
- Parallel programming for deep memory hierarchies, including nonvolatile memory
- Parallel programming languages
- Parallel programming theory and models
- Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics,
cloud, machine learning
- Performance analysis, debugging, and optimization
- Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
- Software engineering for parallel programs
- Software for heterogeneous architectures
- Software productivity for parallel programming
- Synchronization and concurrency control

Papers should report on original research relevant to parallel
programming and contain enough background materials to make them
accessible to the entire parallel programming research community.
Papers describing experience should indicate how they illustrate
general principles or lead to new insights. PPoPP submissions will be
evaluated based on their technical merit and accessibility.
Submissions should clearly motivate the importance of the problem
being addressed, compared to the existing body of work on the topic,
and explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions and
result towards addressing the problem. Submissions should strive to be
accessible both to a broad audience and to experts in the area.
Authors of papers that do not pass the first round of reviewing will
receive a notification so that they can start working as early as
possible on revising their papers and resubmitting them to other
conferences or journals.

Paper Submission:

Conference submission site: https://ppopp22.hotcrp.com.

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference
website and include an abstract (100–400 words), author contact
information, the full list of authors, and their affiliations. Full
paper submissions must be in PDF formatted printable on both A4 and US
letter size paper.

All papers must be prepared in ACM Conference Format using the
2-column acmart format: use the SIGPLAN proceedings template
acmart-sigplanproc-template.tex for Latex, and interim-layout.docx for
Word. You may also want to consult the official ACM information on the
Master Article Template and related tools. **Important note:** The
Word template (interim-layout.docx) on the ACM website uses 9pt font;
you need to increase it to 10pt.

Papers should contain a maximum of 10 pages of text (in a typeface no
smaller than 10 points) or figures, NOT INCLUDING references. There is
no page limit for references.  References must include the names of
all authors (not {et al.}). Appendices are not allowed, but the
authors may submit supplementary material, such as proofs or source
code; all supplementary material must be in PDF format. Looking at
supplementary material is at the discretion of the reviewers.

Submission is double-blind, and authors will need to identify any
potential conflicts of interest with PC and Extended Review Committee
members, as defined here:
http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Review/ (ACM SIGPLAN

PPoPP 2022 will employ a double-blind reviewing process. To facilitate
this process, submissions should not reveal the identity of the
authors in any way. Authors should leave out author names and
affiliations from the body of their submission and the supplementary
material. They should also ensure that any references to their own
related work should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our
previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). The purpose
of this process is to help the PC and external reviewers come to an
initial judgment about the paper without bias, not to make it
impossible for them to discover the authors if they were to try.
Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the
submission or makes reviewing the paper more difficult. In particular,
important background references should not be omitted or anonymized.
In addition, authors should feel free to disseminate their ideas or
draft versions of their papers as they normally would. For instance,
authors may post drafts of their papers on the web or give talks on
their research ideas. Authors with further questions on double-blind
reviewing are encouraged to contact the Program Co-Chairs by email.

Submissions should be in PDF and printable on both US Letter and A4
paper. Papers may be resubmitted to the submission site multiple times
until the deadline, but the last version submitted before the deadline
will be the version reviewed. Papers that exceed the length
requirement that deviate from the expected format or that are
submitted late will be rejected.

All submissions that are not accepted for regular presentations will
be automatically considered for posters. Two-page summaries of
accepted posters will be included in the conference proceedings.

To allow reproducibility, we encourage authors of accepted papers to
submit their papers for Artifact Evaluation (AE). The AE process
begins after the acceptance notification and is run by a separate
committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support the work
described in the papers. Artifact evaluation is voluntary and will not
affect paper acceptance but will be taken into consideration when
selecting papers for awards. Papers that go through the AE process
successfully will receive one or several of the ACM reproducibility
badges printed on the papers themselves. More information will be
posted on the AE website.

Workshop/Tutorial Proposals:

We are soliciting proposals for workshops and tutorials within the
general scope of PPoPP. Members of the community are encouraged to
submit proposals for workshops/tutorials that bring together
researchers and practitioners to share their tools, technologies,
latest results and to discuss work in progress and new directions.
Workshops and tutorials will be held February 12-13, 2022.

Submit your proposals by October 15, 2021, to Bernhard Egger
(bernhard at csap.snu.ac.kr).
