The Chapel Parallel Programming Language


CHIUW: Chapel Implementers and Users Workshop

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Call For Participation

CHIUW—the Chapel Implementers and Users Workshop, to be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2014—will be the first in what is anticipated to be an annual series of workshops designed to bring developers and users of the Chapel language ( together to report on work being done with the language across the broad open-source community. Attendance is open to anyone interested in Chapel, from the most seasoned Chapel user or developer to someone simply curious to learn more.

Program: This year, the backbone of the workshop will be formed by talks from members of the Chapel community describing work they are undertaking within the context of Chapel. Interested parties are encouraged to propose talks using the submission process outlined below. The selection of speakers and final program will be curated by the workshop's steering committee. While speakers are welcome to prepare a paper to complement their talk, there is no requirement to do so, nor will there be any formal proceedings for this workshop. All talk slides, papers, and materials developed for the workshop will be archived on the workshop website. Most importantly, presenting research results at this workshop is not intended to preclude their submission and publication at more established conferences and workshops.

The day will start with a brief overview of Chapel and the project's status, for those unfamiliar with the language. During the workshop, we also anticipate an invited talk or two, as well as a panel discussion regarding Chapel's future. These details will be announced as we get closer to the workshop date. At the end of the day, there will be an open community session to provide a general forum for hearing questions, thoughts, and feedback from the broader audience.

Call For Submissions: If you have work that you would like to present at this workshop in a talk (~30 minutes), please submit an extended abstract to . The abstract should not exceed one page in 11-point font, and it should contain:
