Performance Optimization via High-Level Languages and Libraries
Full-Day Workshop in conjunction with
16th Annual ACM International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS'02)
New York, NY
June 22, 2002
CALL FOR PAPERS
(Due May 10, 2002)
The complexity of software development has led to many efforts aimed
at raising the level of abstraction for the programmer. This includes
both object-oriented general-purpose approaches as well as
domain-specific languages and libraries. While performance
considerations are not paramount for all domains, there are some
domains where good performance is essential. This workshop aims to
bring together researchers from different domains, who have addressed
performance optimization issues in the context of high-level
languages/libraries and problem solving environments, to share their
successes as well as the challenges they face.
Submissions are invited on topics including, but not limited to:
- program synthesis to facilitate the development of high-performance
programs for specific application domains such as signal processing,
computational chemistry, etc.
- compiler techniques for optimization of high-level mathematical
languages like MATLAB.
- development of efficient implementations of algorithms (e.g. FFT)
for a variety of architectures, by exploiting special structural
properties of the algorithms.
- automatic optimization of library implementations together with the
optimization of programs that use them.
- efficient synthesis of recursive linear algebra codes that exploit
deep memory hierarchies in current computer systems.
- problem solving environments for high-performance computing
- high-performance computing with object-oriented and component-based
This workshop will be of interest to researchers and graduate students
in several areas such as compilation technology, domain-specific
languages, library development, problem-solving environments, etc.
The format of this full-day workshop will include invited speakers and
presentations of selected papers, with plenty of time for discussion.
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts electronically to
workshop co-chair: firstname.lastname@example.org. Extended abstracts should be in PDF
format, preferably 5 pages and no more than 8 pages long. Papers will
be accepted on the basis of their novelty and relevance to the theme
of the workshop. The final versions of accepted papers can be up to 10
pages in length and will be published by the workshop. In addition,
publication of the papers in a monograph will be pursued.
Please include the following information in plain text with the
* author's name(s),
* postal address,
* phone and FAX numbers,
* email address,
* 5 keywords and
Hard copy (postal) submissions will not be accepted.
All submissions will be refereed, and workshop attendees will receive
copies of the workshop proceedings.
May 10: Electronic submission due
May 22: Notification of authors
June 17: Final version of papers due (by 7:00 PM Central Time USA)
The final version of a paper can be up to 10 pages long and must
use 10-pt or larger fonts. There are no other format requirements.
