PPoPP is the premier forum for leading work on all aspects of parallel
programming, including theoretical foundations, techniques, languages,
compilers, runtime systems, tools, and practical experience. In the context of
the symposium, “parallel programming” encompasses work on concurrent and
parallel systems (multicore, multi-threaded, heterogeneous, clustered,
and distributed systems; grids; data centers; clouds; and large scale
machines). Given the rise of parallel architectures in the consumer market
(desktops, laptops, and mobile devices) and data centers, PPoPP is particularly
interested in work that addresses new parallel workloads and issues that arise
out of extreme-scale applications or cloud platforms, as well as techniques and
tools that improve the productivity of parallel programming or work towards
improved synergy with such emerging architectures.

Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

• Compilers and runtime systems for parallel and heterogeneous systems

• Concurrent data structures

• Development, analysis, or management tools

• Fault tolerance for parallel systems

• Formal analysis and verification

• High-performance / scientific computing

• Libraries

• Middleware for parallel systems

• Parallel algorithms

• Parallel applications and frameworks

• Parallel programming for deep memory hierarchies including nonvolatile memory

• Parallel programming languages

• Parallel programming theory and models

• Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud, machine learning

• Performance analysis, debugging and optimization

• Programming tools for parallel and heterogeneous systems

• Software engineering for parallel programs

• Software for heterogeneous architectures

• Software productivity for parallel programming

• Synchronization and concurrency control

Papers should report on original research relevant to parallel programming and
should contain enough background materials to make them accessible to the
entire parallel programming research community. Papers describing experience
should indicate how they illustrate general principles or lead to new insights;
papers about parallel programming foundations should indicate how they relate
to practice. PPoPP submissions will be evaluated based on their technical merit
and accessibility. Submissions should clearly motivate the importance of the
problem being addressed, compare to the existing body of work on the topic, and
explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions and results
towards addressing the problem. Submissions should strive to be accessible both
to a broad audience and to experts in the area.
