Conference Call for Papers

HLPP 2020

The 13th International Symposium on

High-level Parallel Programming and Applications

Porto, Portugal, 9-10 July, 2020



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 13th Symposium on High-Level Parallel

Programming and Applications will be held in the Porto, Portugal.



HLPP 2020 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel

programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to,

the following aspects:

* High-level programming, performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools

* Declarative parallel programming methodologies

* Algorithmic skeletons and constructive methods

* Declarative parallel programming languages and libraries: semantics

and implementation

* Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs

* Software synthesis, automatic code generation for parallel programming

* Model-driven software engineering with parallel programs

* High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms

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

* Applications of parallel systems using high­-level languages and tools

* Formal models of timing and real-time verification for parallel systems

Important dates:


Submission deadline: 6th, April (anywhere on earth)

Author notification: 4th, June

Camera-ready for draft proceedings: 1st, July

Early registration deadline: 10th, June

Symposium: 9th-10th, July (Thursday/Friday)

IJPP (HLPP special issue) submission deadline: 1st, October

IJPP (HLPP special issue) camera-ready for journal publication: 01st, December

Paper submission


Papers submitted to HLPP 2020 must describe original research results

and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere


Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJSS latex macro

package using the single column option

(\\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}) and submitted via the

EasyChair Conference Management System as one pdf file. The strict

page limit for initial submission and camera-ready version is 20 pages

in the aforementioned format.

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the

international technical program committee. 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 2020 symposium and present the paper.

After the symposium you have ample time to revise the paper

incorporating potential comments and remarks of your colleagues. We

expect the the HLPP 2020 special issue of the International Journal of

Parallel Programming (IJPP) to appear online-first by the end of the

year and the printed edition in mid-2021.



Accepted papers will be distributed as informal draft proceedings

during the symposium. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in

a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming




HLPP 2020 will be hosted by the Dept. of Computer Science (GPS coords

41.152545, -8.640758) of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of

Porto (FCUP).

Participants may reserve rooms in several of the nearby Hotels. As the

symposium will be held in the tourist season, the organizers recommend

a timely reservation of rooms.
