PPoPP 2019
Sat 16 - Wed 20 February 2019 Washington, DC, United States

Call for Workshops and Tutorials

PPoPP 2019 will host a variety of high-quality workshops and tutorials, allowing their participants to learn about popular and new tools and technologies, to meet and discuss research questions with peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and start new collaborations. PPoPP workshops and tutorials complement the main tracks of the conference. Workshops provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized setting, and cultivate new ideas and concepts for the future, optionally recorded in formal proceedings.

We are soliciting proposals for workshops and tutorials within the general scope of PPoPP. We encourage members of the community to submit proposals for workshops/tutorials that bring together researchers and practitioners to share their tools, technologies, latest results and to discuss work in progress and new directions. Workshops and tutorials will be held prior to the main conference on Saturday–Sunday, February 16-17, 2019 and may be half a day or a full day in length. Please note that attendees of CGO 2019 and HPCA 2019 will also be able to register for these workshops and tutorials.


Please submit proposals to the PPoPP 2019 Workshops and Tutorials Chair, Abhinav Bhatele (bhatele@llnl.gov). Workshop and tutorial proposals will be evaluated on an ongoing basis.
