Call for Papers:

LCPC 2021

Abstract or Paper Registration Deadline
July 8, 2021
Final Submission Deadline
July 15, 2021

Since its inception in 1988, 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 — from parallel programming models, languages, compilers, runtimes and tools, to results related to new parallel applications or systems. Its scope is particularly broad: it encompasses foundational results, as well as practical experience reports and bold new ideas for future systems.

In addition to its traditional themes in parallel programming systems, relevant topics include advances in programming systems for heterogeneous and reconfigurable computing, mobile computing, IoT and cloud computing, and papers in data analytics, machine learning and cognitive computing. Along with research in new computing domains such as analog, neuromorphic and quantum computing, LCPC particularly encourages submissions in areas that are enabled or enhanced by parallelism and work that combines scientific computing with data analytics and machine learning.

Specific topics of interest for LCPC 2021 include, but are not limited to:

  • Compilers for parallel computing, including heterogeneous systems
  • Static, dynamic and adaptive optimization of parallel programs
  • Just-in-time compiling, including for scripting languages
  • Parallel programming models and languages for traditional and emerging architectures
  • Languages and tools for programming quantum computing systems
  • Formal methods in analysis, verification, and software engineering of parallel programs
  • Intermediate representations for general-purpose and domain-specific compilation
  • 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 (e.g. MPI, OpenSHMEM)

LCPC 2021 invites the following kinds of papers in Springer Verlag LNCS format:

  • Full papers of up to 15 pages on innovative and original research that describe new research contributions
  • Short papers of up to 8 pages on preliminary results, surveys, demonstrations, or visions for future research

Note that presentations for both kinds of papers will be 30 minutes (25 minutes talk + 5 minutes questions)

Papers must be submitted in PDF format. There will be pre-workshop, informal proceedings as well as post-workshop proceedings in Springer Verlag’s LNCS series. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the Springer copyright form. Instructions for preparing papers for the formal proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.
