Call for Papers

We have invited a selected group of researchers to submit their contributions to the 16th International Workshop on Compilers for Parallel Computing (CPC 2012). The main goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers in compilation and associated areas, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, in order to exchange ideas and to foster collaboration. The scope encompasses all areas of parallelism and optimization, from embedded systems through to large scale parallel systems and computational grids. The following is a representative list of topics:

  • Parallel programming models and languages.
  • Parallelization techniques: user-directed, semi-automatic and automatic.
  • Optimizations for exploiting the memory hierarchy.
  • Optimizations for exploiting instruction level parallelism.
  • Optimizations for power consumption.
  • Profile directed and feedback assisted compilation.
  • Program analysis and program understanding tools.
  • High level specification and domain-specific languages compilation.
  • Architectural models and performance prediction.
  • Just-in-time compilation.
  • Static and dynamic optimization techniques for performance and scalability.
  • Parallel runtime systems.
  • Continuous program optimization.
  • Program analysis frameworks and tools.
  • Backend code generation and optimization.
  • Compilation and optimization for multi-core systems.
  • Performance modeling and tools for performance tuning.
  • Architectural support for productive parallelization.

We encourage submission on new and emerging topics and reports on work in progress. Papers may contain previously published material, but should reflect the authors’ current interest. To enable a wide representation of research groups, a maximum of two papers per group will be accepted.

Proceedings and Journal Special Issue

Accepted papers will be published in local proceedings, which will be distributed to the participants. Authors may choose to except their papers from publication by explicitly notifying the organizers. Selected original papers presented in the workshop will be published as a special issue of IJPP.

Instructions for Authors

Authors should submit a one-page abstract and title for consideration to by September 25th, 2011. Acceptance decisions will be notified by October 23rd, 2011. Camera ready papers not exceeding 15 pages must be sent by email to by December 4th, 2011 (firm deadline!). To facilitate the editing of local proceedings, please send both the PDF camera ready paper and an archive (zip, or gzip, or bzip2 format) including all source files (LaTeX code, figures, etc) needed to generate it. Please format your papers according to the Lecture Notes in Computer Science template. The necessary files for LaTeX2e can be found at Springer.
