CHIUW 2021 is the 8th annual Chapel Implementers and Users Workshop, which
serves as a forum where users and developers of the Chapel programming language
(chapel-lang.org) can meet to report on work being done with Chapel, exchange
ideas, and forge new collaborations. Anyone interested in parallel programming
and Chapel is encouraged to attend CHIUW, from long-term enthusiasts to those
simply curious to learn more. This year's CHIUW will be online and there will be
no registration fees.

Topics of interest for CHIUW include:

- User experiences writing applications in Chapel
- Improvements to the Chapel language, compiler, and runtime
- Performance or benchmark studies involving Chapel
- Libraries or tools for Chapel programmers
- Comparisons to other parallel programming models
- Uses of Chapel in education
- Related topics likely to be of interest to Chapel enthusiasts

CHIUW 2021 is a full-day, independent, virtual workshop consisting of
Chapel-related presentations and sessions. Those interested in submitting papers
should refer to the Submissions section below. Other workshop activities will

- A keynote talk on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Chapel by Dr. Éric
  Laurendeau, Polytechnique Montréal
- a pre-workshop introduction to Chapel for those new to the language,
- a "State of the Chapel Project" talk,
- a free-form community discussion on Chapel priorities and next steps.

Submissions to CHIUW 2021 can be made in one of two forms:

1. Research papers: 5-8 pages, excluding references

  Research papers can describe novel R&D being undertaken by the authors or an
  update on ongoing efforts that are of interest to Chapel community. Papers
  will be evaluated by the program committee using typical standards for
  academic research papers, including plagiarism (and self-plagiarism). Research
  papers should be prepared using the ACM conference submission format. We
  strongly recommend checking that each line is numbered to ease and enrich the
  review process.

2. Talk proposals: 1-4 pages, excluding references (if any)

  To propose a talk at CHIUW, submit an extended abstract describing what you
  intend to present. CHIUW talks can preview work that is not yet ready for
  publication, recap work that the speaker has already published, and/or
  describe work that is not intended for publication. Talk proposals will be
  evaluated by the program and steering committees based on their expected level
  of interest to the CHIUW audience. Talk proposals should be formatted
  reasonably where using the same template as the research papers is an option,
  though not a requirement.

Please submit your manuscript for either form via EasyChair by the submission
deadline below.


Presenting Your Work
Depending on scheduling constraints, each accepted research paper and talk
proposal will get 15-25 minutes of presentation time, followed by 5 minutes of
Q&A. Research papers that are not accepted for publication at CHIUW 2021 will
automatically be considered as a talk proposal submission, as well. If accepted
as such, authors will have the option to submit a shorter version of their work
for the final version.

Accepted submissions will be made available through the CHIUW 2021 website.
Acceptance to CHIUW 2021 does not preclude papers from being published
elsewhere, and authors can submit their work to other venues.

Questions, Concerns, Suggestions?
If you have any questions or suggestions to improve CHIUW, please comment under
