Call for Workshops and Tutorials

The ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP) 2011 is seeking proposals for workshops and tutorials to accompany the conference. Workshops and tutorials will be held on Saturday–Sunday, February 12–13, 2011 and may be a half day or a full day in length.

We encourage members of the community to consider submitting proposals for workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working on research topics of significant current interest, as well as workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working in particular areas. Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Parallel programming theory and models
  • Formal analysis and verification
  • Parallel programming languages
  • Compilers and runtime systems
  • Task-parallel libraries
  • Parallel application frameworks
  • Software productivity for parallel programming
  • Middleware for parallel systems
  • Performance analysis, debugging and optimization
  • Development, analysis, or management tools
  • Parallel algorithms
  • Parallel applications
  • Concurrent data structures
  • Synchronization and concurrency control
  • Software engineering for parallel programs
  • Fault tolerance for parallel systems
  • Software for heterogeneous architectures
  • Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems
  • Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web servers, search, analytics
  • Teaching parallelism

Submission details

Deadline for submission: August 1st, 2010
Notification of acceptance: August 30, 2010

Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit a completed workshop proposal form or tutorial proposal form in plain text format to the PPoPP 2011 workshop and tutorials chair (Christoph von Praun), via email to Please note that this is a firm deadline. If successful, organizers are required to produce a final report after the workshop has taken place that is suitable for publication in SIGPLAN Notices. Information about SIGPLAN publication and sponsorship is available here (external link).

Selection committee

The workshop proposals will be evaluated by the members of the PPoPP 2011 organizing committee.
