Workshop Topic

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. 
All aspects of performance critical programming and parallel programming are in-scope for the workshop, irrespective of hardware target. This includes both traditional large-scale scientific computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with SMPs, GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors.

Location, registration, travel

FHPC'15 will be held at at the at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver in Vancouver BC Canada. The workshop is co-located with the ICFP 2015 conference. Please see the ICFP local information pages for travel information and tipps.

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.
