Call for Abstracts:
CnC-2013: The Fifth Annual Concurrent Collections Workshop
Sept. 23-24, 2013 at Qualcomm Research Silicon Valley, Santa Clara, CA (co-located with LCPC'13)
*Abstracts Due: August 16, 2013*
Notification: August 23, 2013
Workshop: September 23-24, 2013
The annual Concurrent Collections (CnC) workshop is a forum for
researchers and developers of parallel programs to interact on a
variety of issues related to next-generation parallel programming
models. The focus is on fostering a community around the CnC
programming model; however, we also strongly encourage
participation by anyone with an interest in programming models
inspired by dataflow and/or tuple space ideas as well as current or
emerging applications of such models.
Participation and Call for Abstracts
The workshop agenda will include a CnC tutorial and presentations
selected from contributed abstracts. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to: language design and implementation,
semantics and theory, application experiences, and teaching of CnC.
If you would like to give a talk, please submit a short abstract
(between 200 and 500 words in length) by Aug. 16, 2013 to both
workshop chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
There may be a small registration fee to cover lunch at the workshop.
Background on CnC
CnC is a parallel programming model for mainstream programmers that
differs from other approaches in its philosophy. A CnC programmer
doesn't specify parallel operations; instead, he/she only specifies
semantic ordering constraints. This provides a separation of
concerns between the domain expert and the tuning expert,
simplifying the job of the domain expert while providing more
flexibility to the tuning expert. Details on CnC and related
research can be found at:
Prior workshops have served as a forum for users and potential
users of Concurrent Collections (CnC), to discuss experiences with
CnC and a range of topics, including developments for the language,
applications, usability, performance, semantics, and teaching of
