HLPP 2020

13th International Symposium on High-level Parallel Programming and Applications

Porto, Portugal, July 9-10, 2020

News


HLPP2020 will be held fully online

We are monitoring the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and following the recommendations/guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

The safety of all conference participants is our main priority. In this perspective, regardless of the outbreak outcomes in July, we will make HLPP2020 an online (synchronous and/or asynchronous) event and we will maintain the regular publication activities, i.e., accepted papers will be selected for IJPP.

Attendance will be free for all (authors and non-authors of accepted papers), but it is required that participants register in advance by filling a form until June 19, 2020. Prior to the event, information regarding the access and schedule of the live sessions will be sent to all registrants via email.

The number of participants is limited, thus the registration process closes once the limit is reached. For any further information, please send a message to HLPP2020.

Stay safe!

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 workshops/symposia 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 13th Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications will be held in Porto, Portugal.

Topics


HLPP 2020 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, the following aspects:
  • 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 programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms
  • High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets
  • Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
  • Formal models of timing and real-time verification for parallel systems

Paper Submission


Papers submitted to HLPP 2020 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else.

Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJSS latex macro package using the single column option (\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}) and submitted via the EasyChair Conference Management System as one pdf file. The strict page limit for initial submission and camera-ready version is 20 pages in the aforementioned format.

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the international technical program committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and quality of presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2020 symposium and present the paper.

After the symposium the authors of the accepted papers will have ample time to revise their papers and to incorporate the potential comments and remarks of their colleagues. We expect the HLPP 2020 special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP) to appear online-first by the end of the year and the printed edition in mid-2021.
