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 many domains where high 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:
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.
- program synthesis to facilitate the development of high-performance programs for specific application domains such as signal processing, computational chemistry, etc.
- compile/runtime techniques for scalable implementation of "high-productivity" high-performance languages like Chapel, Fortress, X10
- compiler techniques for optimization of high-level mathematical languages like MATLAB.
- compile/runtime techniques for scalable implementations of parallel global-address space languages and libraries, such as Co-Array Fortran, Global Arrays, OpenMP, SHMEM, Titanium, UPC etc.
- development of high-performance 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 applications
- high-performance computing with object-oriented and component-based frameworks
The format of this full-day workshop will include invited speakers and presentations of contributed papers. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee, with help from other external reviewers.
Authors should submit and register their paper by December 21, 2007 midnight Eastern time through the EDAS submission system.
All submission will be reviewed. Submissions should be a complete manuscript (not to exceed 8 pages of single spaced text in two-column format, including figures and tables) or, in special cases, may be a summary of relevant work. Submissions should be in pdf-format (preferred), or alternatively in Postscript (level 2) format. Authors should make sure that the submission can be viewed using ghostscript and will print on standard letter size paper (8.5" x 11").
IEEE CS Press will publish the IPDPS symposium and workshop abstracts as a printed volume. The complete symposium and workshop proceedings will also be published by IEEE CS Press as a CD-ROM disk.
