The OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB) today announced that it is now taking submissions for the OpenMPCon 2016 developer conference. OpenMPCon provides a unique forum for OpenMP developers to present and discuss the development of real-world applications that leverage the performance of parallel processing through the use of OpenMP. OpenMPCon takes place 3-5 October in Nara, Japan.

“OpenMPCon 2016 builds on the success of last year’s inaugural event to provide developers with a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge and share their practical experience of using the OpenMP API, its supporting tools, and applying the latest advances in parallel programming techniques,” said Michael Klemm, OpenMP CEO.

Abstract submissions are requested from industry experts, developers, and academia on all topics related to OpenMP, including but not limited to: the experience of developing real-world applications with OpenMP, algorithms, performance analysis, tools and libraries, optimization, verification, portability and education. Sessions can be in the form of short form technical presentations, tutorials, workshops, posters, or panel discussions.

  • The submission deadline for abstracts is Friday, 11 June 2016

OpenMPCon runs in partnership with IWOMP, the International Workshop on OpenMP. IWOMP focuses on the presentation of unpublished academic research and takes place immediately after OpenMPCon.
