Fifth International Workshop on
High-level Parallel Programming and Applications (HLPP 2011)
Tokyo, September 18, 2011
Affiliated to ICFP 2011
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN

Aims and Scope

As processor and system manufacturers adjust their roadmaps towards increasing levels of both inter and intra-chip parallelism, so the urgency of reorienting the mainstream software industry towards these architectures grows.

At present, popular parallel and distributed programming methodologies are 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.

This workshop provides a forum for discussion and research about such high-level approaches to parallel programming.


We welcome submission of original, unpublished papers in English on topics including (but not limited to) the following aspects of multi-core, parallel, distributed, grid and cloud computing:
