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. FHPC 2016 seeks to encourage a range of submissions, focussing on work in progress and facilitating early exchange of ideas and open discussion on innovative and/or emerging results. Experience reports are also welcome.


FHPC'16 will be held at at the at the Nara Kasugano International Forum in Nara, Japan. The workshop is co-located with the ICFP 2016 conference. Please see the ICFP local information pages for travel information and tips.
