The 3rd ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
Functional High-Performance Computing
FHPC'14 will be held in Gothenburg,
on Thursday, 4 September, 2014.
The FHPC workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring uses
of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level)
programming technology in application domains where high performance
is essential. The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results,
experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative
specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as
maintainable and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the
performance of machine-oriented imperative implementations.
Every year, the FHPC workshop has an application area as a theme. Papers touching on this topic are especially encouraged, though all in-scope papers are welcomed. For FHPC 2014, the theme is "Heterogeneous computing".
FHPC'14 will be held at the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre in central Gothenburg.
Participants should register for the workshop using the ICFP central conference registration, by a day pass for the workshop day, and indicating that they will attend FHPC.
Student attendees with accepted papers can apply for a SIGPLAN PAC grant to help cover travel expenses. PAC also offers other support, such as for child-care expenses during the meeting or for travel costs for companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities, as well as for travel from locations outside of North America and Europe. For details on the PAC programme, see its web page.
The programme committee has accepted 10 submissions. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. In addition to the accepted papers, FHPC 2014 will feature an invited talk by Dimitrios Vytiniotis (Microsoft Research Cambridge). (We have had to postpone the planned talk by Keshav Pingali because of a medical emergency. We wish him and his family well and hope to hear from him next year.)
