LCPC 2013

The 26th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing

September 25-27, 2013
Qualcomm Research Silicon Valley (co-located with CnC-2013)

The LCPC workshop is a forum for sharing research on all aspects of concurrency: parallel languages, parallel programming models, compilers, runtime systems, and tools. The scope of the workshop spans foundational results and practical experience, early ideas and interesting results. LCPC encourages work that goes outside the scope of scientific computing and enables parallel programming in new areas, such as mobile computing and data centers.

LCPC 2013 will take place at Qualcomm Atheros, 1700 Technology Drive, San Jose, CA, in room SJO.D-208. The venue is within walking distance from the San Jose Airport and the hotel.

LCPC will be co-located with CnC-2013, The Fifth Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop. CnC'13 takes place on September 23-24. The registration process for CnC'13 is not included in LCPC's registration. CnC attendees must register following the instructions here.

Specific topics include:

  • Parallel programming models
  • Parallel programming languages
  • Compiling for parallelism and parallel compilers
  • Static, dynamic, and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
  • Formal analysis and verification of parallel programs
  • Parallel runtime systems
  • Parallel libraries and parallel application frameworks
  • Performance analysis tools for concurrency
  • Debugging tools for parallel programs
  • Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
  • Parallel applications
  • Synchronization and concurrency control
  • Software engineering for parallel programs
  • Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  • Parallel programming for accelerators

Papers should report on original research, and should include enough background material to make them accessible to the entire LCPC research community. Papers describing experiences should indicate how they illustrate general principles; papers about parallel programming foundations should indicate how they relate to practice.

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission web site. Abstracts must include contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations, and a summary description (100-300 words) of the anticipated content of the paper. LCPC 2013 papers are limited to 15 pages in the Springer LNCS format. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and must be viewable by Adobe Acrobat Reader. Papers that are not readable are automatically rejected. The proceedings will be published by Springer. Authors of accepted papers and posters will be required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for preparing papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.
