Topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited to)
- Programming experiences porting applications in any scientific domain
- Compiler and runtime support for current and emerging architectures
- Language-based extensions and its prototype for directive-based programming model
- Memory management techniques
- Performance evaluation and lessons learnt
- Auto-tuning and optimization strategies
- Extensions to and shortcomings of current directives for heterogeneous systems
- Parallel computing using hybrid programming paradigms (e.g. MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC, OpenSHMEM)
- Scientific libraries interoperability with directive based models
- Experiences in implementing compilers for accelerator directives on newer architectures
- Low-level communication APIs or runtimes that support accelerator directives
- Asynchronous execution and scheduling (heterogeneous tasks)
- Power / energy studies
- Static analysis, verification and correctness tools
- Modeling and performance analysis tools
- Benchmarks and validation suites
Workshop Important Deadlines:
- Paper Submission Deadline:
August 22, 2017August 30, 2017 AOE
- Author notification: September 30, 2017
- Workshop Ready Deadline: October 10, 2017
- Camera Ready Deadline: December 08, 2017
- Books published online: Tentatively week of Feb 12, 2018
WACCPD papers will be peer-reviewed and selected for presentation at the workshop. Papers will then be published as a post-proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. This means the camera ready version is due after the workshop. This is so that you improve your paper for the camera-ready version based on feedback received from the workshop along with reviews from the peer-review process.
Paper Submission Guidelines
- Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=waccpd2017.
- They must follow the Springer LNCS format. Submissions are limited to 20 pages. The 20-page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page limit.
- Submitted papers should not have appeared in or be under consideration for a different workshop, conference or journal.
- In submitting the paper, the authors acknowledge that at least one author of an accepted submission will register for and attend the workshop.
