12th International Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications (HLPP-2019)

2019-07-03 - 2019-07-05

Aims and scope of HLPP:


As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms.

Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism.


Since 2001 the HLPP series of workshops/symposia has been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level performance models. The 12th Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications will be held in Linköping, Sweden.


HLPP 2019 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, the following aspects:


High-level parallel programming and performance models and tools

Declarative parallel programming methodologies based on functional, logical, data-flow, actor, and other paradigms

Algorithmic skeletons, patterns, etc. and constructive methods

High-level parallelism in programming languages and libraries (e.g, Haskell, Scala, C++, etc.): semantics and implementation

Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs

Efficient code generation, auto-tuning and optimization for parallel programs

Model-driven software engineering for parallel systems

Domain-specific languages: design, implementation and applications

High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms with accelerators, e.g., GPU, Many-core, FPGA, etc.

High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets

Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools

Teaching experience with high-level tools and methods


Papers submitted to HLPP-2019 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. For formatting and submission see https://www.ida.liu.se/conferences/hlpp2019/submission.shtml


Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the program committee and designated reviewers. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity, and quality of presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2019 symposium and present the paper. Informal proceedings with the camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be available at the symposium. After the symposium, there will be ample time to revise the paper incorporating reviewer comments. Authors of accepted and presented papers will be invited to submit a revised version of their paper for publication in a special issue of International Journal of Parallel Programming (Springer).


HLPP-2019 will also include tutorials and an open poster session for ongoing (esp., European) research projects related to the scope of the symposium.
