CALL FOR PAPERS
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’18) is being held as in previous years in conjunction with the
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP’18) together
with numerous other workshops/symposia, and as a first, colocated with
Strange Loop, in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
The FHPC’18 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.
This year FHPC provides authors the opportunity to submit for evaluation
any relevant artifacts that accompany their papers. The dissemination of
artifacts promotes reproducibility, and enables authors to build on top
of each others’ work, while it can also help to more unambiguously
resolve questions about cases not considered by the original authors.
For the purpose of FHPC, we plan to reward selected artifacts with
additional presentation time in a dedicated slot during the workshop,
for example, for demonstrating (i) reproducibility of results or (ii)
practical usage of the framework (visualization, demos, etc).
The artifact-evaluation committee (AEC) will accept any artifact that
authors wish to submit. Obviously, the better the artifact is packaged,
the more likely the AEC can actually work with it. We ask the authors to
provide provide the title of the FHPC paper submission, together with
* a .pdf file that provides detailed instructions to the
reviewers about how to install the artifact and what to look for in
* an archive .zip or .tar.gz containing the artifact
* the submitted FHPC’18 paper (.pdf file)
The artifact evaluation process is intended to encourage an open and
constructive communication (via HotCRP) between (anonymous) reviewers
Submission of an artifact does not constitute tacit permission to make
its content public. AEC members will be instructed that they may not
publicise any part of your artifact during or after completing
evaluation, nor retain any part of it after evaluation. Thus, you are
free to include models, data files, proprietary binaries, and similar
items in your artifact. The AEC organisers strongly encourage you to
anonymise any data files that you submit.
The proceedings of FHPC’18 will be published by the ACM Digital Press.
* Submission Deadline: June 8, 2018 anywhere on Earth.
* Notification: early July (TBD)
* Camera ready: late July (TBD)
* Final version of proceedings available: Sept. 9
* FHPC 2018: Saturday Sept. 29, 2018.
