Dear colleagues,

Following several requests for an extension, the submission deadline for FHPC'16 has been extended by 5 days to 15th June.

                         CALL FOR PAPERS

                            FHPC 2016

                 The 5th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
              Functional High-Performance Computing
                           Nara, Japan
                        September 22, 2016


Co-located with the International Conference on Functional Programming
                           (ICFP 2016)

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, 15 June, 2016 (anywhere on earth)

The FHPC workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring uses
of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level)
programming technology in application domains where high performance
is essential. The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results,
experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative
specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as
maintainable and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the
performance of machine-oriented imperative implementations.

All aspects of performance critical programming and parallel
programming are in-scope for the workshop, irrespective of hardware
target. This includes both traditional large-scale scientific
computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with
SMPs, GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors. It is becoming apparent
that radically new and well founded methodologies for programming such
systems are required to address their inherent complexity and to
reconcile execution performance with programming productivity.
Experience reports are also welcome.


FHPC 2016 seeks to encourage a range of submissions, focussing on work
in progress and facilitating early exchange of ideas and open discussion
on innovative and/or emerging results. To this end submissions should 
take the form of short (maximum 6 page) papers. Accepted papers will 
be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

* Submissions due: Wednesday 15 June, 2016 (anywhere on earth)
* Author notification: Friday, 8 July, 2016
* Final copy due: Sunday, 31 July, 2016

Submitted papers must be in portable document format (PDF), formatted
according to the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines (2 column, 9pt format).
See http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm for more information
and style files. Papers should be no longer than 6 pages.

Contributions to FHPC 2016 should be submitted via Easychair, at the
following URL:

The FHPC workshops adhere to the ACM SIGPLAN policies regarding
programme committee contributions and republication. Any paper
submitted must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy. PC member
submissions are welcome, but will be reviewed to a higher standard.


Travel Support:

Student attendees with accepted papers can apply for a SIGPLAN PAC
grant to help cover travel expenses. PAC also offers other support, such
as for child-care expenses during the meeting or for travel costs for
companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities, as well as for
travel from locations outside of North America and Europe. For details
on the PAC programme, see its web page (http://www.sigplan.org/PAC.htm).
