Fourth International Workshop on
High-level Parallel Programming and Applications (HLPP 2010)
Baltimore, Maryland, September 25, 2010
Affiliated to ICFP 2010
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN

Aims and Scope

As processor and system manufacturers adjust their roadmaps towards increasing levels of both inter and intra-chip parallelism, so the urgency of reorienting the mainstream software industry towards these architectures grows.

At present, popular parallel and distributed programming methodologies are dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms.

Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism.

This workshop provides a forum for discussion and research about such high-level approaches to parallel programming.

Workshop Program


We welcomed submission of original, unpublished papers in English on topics including (but not limited to) the following aspects of multi-core, parallel, distributed, grid and cloud computing:

Important Dates


Papers must be submitted online via EasyChair.

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines. The text should be in a 9pt font in two columns; the length is restricted to 10 pages.

Papers must report previously unpublished work and not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
