PPoPP is a 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; clouds; and
large scale machines).  Given the rise of parallel architectures in
the consumer market (desktops, laptops, and mobile devices), PPoPP is
particularly interested in work that addresses new parallel workloads,
techniques, and tools that attempt to improve the productivity of
parallel programming, and 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
  + Middleware for parallel systems
  + Parallel algorithms
  + Parallel applications and frameworks
  + Parallel programming languages
  + Parallel programming theory and models
  + Parallelism in non-scientific workloads: web, search, analytics, cloud
  + 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
  + Task-parallel libraries

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; papers about parallel programming foundations
should indicate how they relate to practice.  Poster submissions
should meet similar criteria for originality and relevance, but may
present emerging ideas or results that are not yet sufficiently
developed for a full paper.

Paper Submission 

All submissions are due August 1, 2017 and must be made electronically
through the conference web site and include an abstract (100--400 words),
author contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations.
Full paper submissions must be in PDF formatted for US letter size paper.
No extensions will be granted.

Papers should contain a maximum of 11 pages of single-spaced,
minimum 10pt font, two-column text, NOT INCLUDING references.
There is no page limit for references and they must include the name of
all authors (not {et. al.}).  Submission is double blind
and authors will need to identify any potential conflicts of interest with
PC and Extended Review Committee members,  as defined here:
http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Review/ (ACM SIGPLAN
policy).

Detailed instructions for electronic submission and other important
ACM SIGPLAN Policies will be posted on the PPoPP conference web site
http://ppopp.org. For additional information regarding paper submissions,
please contact the Program Chair, Lawrence Rauchwerger .

Poster submissions must conform to the same format restrictions, but
may not exceed 2 pages in length.  Paper submissions that are not
accepted for regular presentations will automatically be considered
for posters; authors who do not want their paper considered for the
poster session should indicate this in their paper submission.
Two-page summaries of posters will be included in the conference proceedings.

Artifact evaluation has been included in PPoPP 2015 and PPoPP 2016, and will
be continued in PPoPP 2017.  Authors of accepted papers will be invited to 
formally submit their supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process.
The Artifact Evaluation process is run by a separate committee whose task is
to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This
submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding
the papers. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully
will receive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Authors of
accepted papers are encouraged (but not obliged) to make these materials publicly
available upon publication of the proceedings, by including them as source
materials in the ACM Digital Library.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library.  This date
may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference.  The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work.  (For those rare conferences whose
proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the
conference is over, the official publication date remains the first
day of the conference.)

Tutorials / Workshops

Proposals are solicited for tutorials and workshops to be held immediately 
before the conference. Interested individuals are invited to contact the 
Workshops Chair and the Tutorials Chair Rajkishore Barik 


WORKSHOPS \&  TUTORIALS DEADLINES: 

Proposals:   August 31, 2016.          
Notification: 2 weeks after submission (latest: September 14, 2016).    
Dates: February 4--5, 2017.
