HIPS 2021

26th International Workshop on High-Level Parallel Programming Models and Supportive Environments

Held in Conjunction With 34th IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
May 17-21, 2021


The 26th HIPS workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at the IPDPS 2021 conference in Portland and as virtual workshop, focuses on high-level programming of multiprocessors, compute clusters, and massively parallel machines. Like previous workshops in this series — established in 1996 — this event serves as a forum for research in the areas of parallel applications, language design, compilers, runtime systems, and programming tools. It provides a timely forum for scientists and engineers to present the latest ideas and findings in these rapidly changing fields. In our call for papers, we especially invite papers demonstrating innovative approaches in the areas of emerging programming models for large-scale parallel systems and many-core architectures. An additional emphasis this year will be on heterogeneous compute capabilities and deep memories to encourage new developments in programming models for high performance systems.
