    7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing
             September 29, 2018, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The 7th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-Performance Computing 
(FHPC 2018) is being held as in previous years in conjunction with the 
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2018) together 
with numerous other workshops/symposia, and as a first, colocated with 
Strange Loop, in St. Louis, MO, USA.

Workshop Objectives

The FHPC 2018 workshop seeks to bring together researchers and 
practitioners exploring uses of functional (or more generally, 
declarative or high-level) programming systems or concepts 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 
(low-level) 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 distributed-memory scientific 
computing (HPC), as well as work targeting single node systems with 
SMPs, GPUs, FPGAs, or embedded processors. FHPC 2018 seeks to encourage 
a range of submissions, focusing on work in progress and facilitating 
early exchange of ideas and open discussion on innovative and/or 
emerging results. Original research, experience reports, case studies, 
and evaluations of programming systems are all welcome. Work on 
incorporation of functional programming concepts into more traditional 
(imperative) HPC applications is explicitly solicited.

Papers, Presentations, and Demonstrations

The refereed paper deadline has passed.  In the workshop spirit, the 
refereed paper presentation program is being augmented to include less 
formally reviewed presentations in the form of talks not based on 
accepted papers, and software demonstrations.   Topic areas of interest 
include research or development in progress, experience reports, and 
position/white paper statements.

Proposals will be subject to a mild reviewing process to insure 
relevance and general interest to FHPC.  We expect time slots to be 
between one-half and one hour.

Prospective presenters are requested to submit an abstract describing 
their proposed contribution via the paper submission site.  The deadline 
is July 29, 2018, midnight anywhere on Earth, but the PC reserves the 
right to accept proposals at any time after submission.  As such, early 
submission is strongly encouraged.

Important Dates

   - Submission Deadline: Midnight July 29, 2018 Anywhere on Earth.
   - Notification: early-mid August (TBD)
   - FHPC 2018: Saturday Sept. 29, 2018.
