2020 International Workshop on Performance, Portability & Productivity in HPC


The International Workshop on Performance, Portability, and Productivity in HPC (P3HPC) provides a forum for researchers and application developers to discuss their successes and failures in tackling the compelling problems that lie at the intersection of performance, portability and productivity (P3) and High-Performance Computing (HPC).

We are particularly interested in research that addresses the complexities of real-life applications and/or realistic workloads, the composibility challenges arising from bespoke solutions, and the desire to “future-proof” applications through an era of increased heterogeneity and new emerging architectures. The topic of P3 touches on many aspects of HPC software development, and we expect the workshop program to reflect a wide range of experiences and perspectives, including those of compiler, language and runtime experts; performance engineers; and domain scientists.

Topics of Interest

Authors are invited to submit novel research from all areas concerned with performance, portability, and productivity. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Extensions to HPC languages (e.g. C/C++, Fortran), libraries and runtimes
  • Directives, libraries, domain specific languages and other abstractions
  • Algorithmic and application development techniques
  • Techniques specifically designed for use with legacy codes
  • Preparing applications for future architectural changes
  • Measuring and evaluating the success of P3 approaches
  • Case studies documenting efforts at using state-of-the-art P3 tools and techniques

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Technical Consortium on High Performance Computing (TCHPC) in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
