Call for Papers: Functional High-Performance and Numerical Computing


#1

ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance and Numerical
Computing (FHPNC), Berlin, August 18, 2019

Satellite event of the 24th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
Functional Programming (ICFP 2019) 18 - 23 August, 2019

The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional High-Performance
and Numerical Computing aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners exploring or employing the use of functional or
declarative programming languages or techniques in scientific
computing, and specifically in the domains of high-performance
computing and numerical programming.

The purpose of the meeting is to enable sharing of results,
experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative
techniques can help make high-performance, distributed/parallel, or
numerically-intensive code dealing with computationally challenging
problems easier to write, read, maintain, or portable to new hardware
architectures. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • relevant compiler technologies
  • runtime systems (including fault tolerance mechanisms and those
    supporting distributed or parallel computation)
  • domain-specific languages (embedded or standalone)
  • type systems
  • formal methods
  • software libraries (e.g. for exact or interval arithmetic).

Submission details

Submissions should fall into one of two categories:

  • Regular research papers (up to 12 pages)
  • Extended abstracts (1 - 2 pages)

The bibliography will not be counted against the page limits for
either category.

Regular research papers are expected to present novel and interesting
research results, and will be included in the formal proceedings.
Extended abstracts should report work in progress that the authors
would like to present at the workshop; they will be evaluated
primarily for relevance and interest. Extended abstracts will be
distributed to workshop attendees but will not be published in the
formal proceedings.

We welcome submissions from PC members (with the exception of the PC
Chair), but these submissions will be held to a higher standard.

Submission is handled through the HotCRP site. All submissions should
be in portable document format (PDF) and formatted using the ACM
SIGPLAN style guidelines. Submissions written with LaTeX are required
to use the ‘acmart’ format and the two-column ‘sigplan’ subformat (not
to be confused with the one-column ‘acmlarge’ subformat!).

Extended Abstracts must be submitted with the label ‘Extended
abstract’ clearly in the title.

Publication

The proceedings of FHPNC 2019 will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
