LCPC 2017

The 30th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing

Co-located with CnC 2017 - The Ninth Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop

LCPC October 11-13, 2017 & CnC October 14, 2017
Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas


Call for Papers

The Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC) has been since its founding in 1988, a leading venue for research on parallel languages and compilers and many related topics related to parallel computing including parallelizing compilers, parallel programming models, runtime systems, and tools with a diverse domain of application. The wide scope of the workshop is unique in that spans the spectrum from foundational principles to practical experience, and from early ideas to polished results. LCPC encourages submissions that go outside its original scope of scientific computing to diverse areas that are enable or enhanced by the power of parallel systems such as mobile computing, big data, relevant aspects of machine learning, data centers, cognitive computing, etc. LCPC strongly encourages personal interaction and technical discussions along the initial material presented at the workshop and published its revised proceedings in LNCS later, after the meeting.

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of LCPC, which is a testament to the quality and impact of the published work in this venue. It also shows the dedication of its core participants who have persevered in the development of parallel computing while it was going through its ups and down.

After 14 years LCPC comes back to Texas A&M University College Station, TX, to find the same pleasant October weather but a much larger and exciting venue. In addition to a strong program of contributed papers, LCPC'17 will feature invited speakers and an exciting panel that will bring together the veterans as well as the rising stars of parallel computing. LCPC will co-located with the CnC workshop.

Specific topics of LCPC 2017 include:

  • Compilers for parallel computing
  • Static, dynamic, and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
  • Parallel programming models and languages
  • Formal analysis and verification of parallel programs
  • Parallel runtime systems and libraries
  • Performance analysis and debugging tools for concurrency
  • Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
  • Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded Systems, Bio, IoT.
  • Software engineering for parallel programs
  • Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  • Parallel programming and compiling for heterogeneous systems

LCPC 2017 solicits two types of submissions:

  • Research papers that report on original, novel research. The length is limited to 15 pages in the Springer LNCS format.
  • Blue Sky Ideas papers that describe visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the current mainstream topics of the field and which will provoke discussion or debate. The length is limited to 6 pages in the Springer LNCS format.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be a pre-workshop, informal proceedings as well as a post-workshop one in LNCS series of Springer Verlag. 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.

For detailed instructions please see: http://preview.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines

LNCS templates can be downloaded from Springer (LaTex2e class, LaTex2e sample, and MS Word).

Bibliography is unlimited and reviewing is double blind (so no author names !)

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission web site.
