5th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on High-level Parallel Programming and Applications
Tokyo, September 18, 2011
Affiliated to ICFP 2011 http://www.icfpconference.org/icfp2011
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN


As processor and system manufacturers adjust their roadmaps towards increasing levels of both inter and intra-chip parallelism, so the urgency of reorienting the mainstream software industry towards these architectures grows.

At present, popular parallel and distributed programming methodologies are 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.

This workshop provides a forum for discussion and research about such high-level approaches to parallel programming.


We welcome submission of original, unpublished papers in English on topics including (but not limited to) the following aspects of multi-core, parallel, distributed, grid and cloud computing: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
   * Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
   * Applications using high-level languages and tools
   * Teaching experience with high-level tools and methods


* PC Chair: Kiminori Matsuzaki (Kochi University of Technology, Japan)
* PC Members:
  o Jeremiah Willcock (Indiana University, USA)
  o Pavan Balaji (Argonne National Laboratory, USA)
