International Symposium on High-level Parallel Programming and Applications

 HLPP2013 was held in Paris, 1-2 July 2013. 
                     Accepted papers appeared in Springer's IJPP.
                               HLPP2014 will be held in Amsterdam 3-4 July 2014      

Aims and scope: 
As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms. Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism. 
Since 2001 the HLPP series of meetings has been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level performance models. The 2013 symposium is a self-contained event, held in central Paris. 

Invited talk by Leslie Valiant (Harvard U.) inventor of the BSP paradigm and 2010 Turing award:
  A Bridging Model for Multi-Core Computing

Registration open until Wednesday 19 June 2013:  
Registration fees 200€ + 50€/ Monday evening participant.

Topics:  HLPP 2013 invited papers written in English on all topics including (but not limited to) the following aspects of multi-core, parallel, distributed, grid and cloud computing: 

  • High-­level programming and performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools
  • Declarative parallel programming methodologies
  • Algorithmic skeletons and constructive methods
  • Declarative parallel programming languages and libraries: semantics and implementation
  • Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
  • Software synthesis, automatic code generation for parallel programming
  • Model-driven software engineering with parallel programs
  • High-level methods for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms: GPGPU, FPGA etc. 
  • High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets
  • Applications of parallel systems using high­level languages and tools
  • Teaching experience with high­level tools and methods  
Authors of accepted papers will register and present their paper at the symposium. 
All accepted papers presented at the workshop by a registered author will be published in Springer's International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP). 

Paper preparation: 
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses and email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words.  Submissions should cover approximately 15 pages and camera-ready versions will be 20 pages long.  Full manuscripts should be prepared with the IJSS latex macro package and submitted via the IJPP online editorial system in single-column formatOnly source latex files will be acepted by the system. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the symposium.  Accepted papers will be made available at the time of the meeting and published in the symposium proceedings.
