The Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing (LCPC) has been a leading venue for cutting-edge research on all aspects of parallel programming systems — including programming models, languages, compilers, runtime systems and tools — for a diverse range of application domains and computing platforms. The scope of the workshop includes advances in programming systems for current domains and platforms, e.g., scientific computing, batch/streaming/real-time data analytics, machine learning, cognitive computing, heterogeneous/reconfigurable computing, mobile computing, cloud computing, IoT, as well as forward-looking computing domains such as analog and quantum computing. Bold new ideas in programming systems are critical for the success of computing platforms in the Moore’s Law end-game and post-Moore eras. LCPC offers a highly interactive forum for dissemination of innovative research contributions as well as in-depth discussions of novel and emerging ideas. As in past years, LCPC 2019 aims to bring together researchers from academia, national labs and industry to create and strengthen new research collaborations.
Specific topics of interest for LCPC 2019 include, but are not limited to:
- Compilers for parallel computing, including heterogeneous systems
- Static, dynamic, and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
- Parallel programming models and languages for traditional and emerging architectures
- Formal methods in analysis, verification, and software engineering of parallel programs
- Parallel runtime systems and libraries
- Performance analysis and debugging tools for parallel programs
- Parallel algorithms and concurrent data structures
- Parallel applications for Big Data, Machine Learning, Embedded Systems, Bio, IoT.
- Fault tolerance in parallel systems
- Parallel communication idioms and libraries (MPI, OpenSHMEM etc.)
Planned highlights of LCPC 2019 beyond research paper presentations include panels & keynotes on:
- Programming Systems for Quantum Computing
- National Lab Focus: Parallel Programming Tools and Best Practices in the Exascale Computing Project
- Industry Focus: New opportunities for parallel programming systems in industry
- Education Focus: Best practices in undergraduate and graduate teaching of parallel programming
LCPC 2019 invites the following kinds of papers (25 min talk + 5 min Questions) in the Springer-Verlag LNCS format:
