IWOMP 2018 – 14th International Workshop on OpenMP

"Evolving OpenMP for Evolving Architectures"

September 26th-28th, 2018

Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Barcelona, Spain

Welcome to the 2018 Edition of IWOMP!!


For the last 20 years, OpenMP has provided a portable and performant mechanism to program applications for shared memory environments. In that time, OpenMP has evolved significantly: the appearance of new programming paradigms such as tasking or vectorization, or the proliferation of accelerators have influenced this popular programming model. The OpenMP 4.5 specification and the latest technical reports introduced significant improvements in different key features such as its support for heterogeneity and its tasking model, as well as new mechanisms for memory affinity and the standardization of tools APIs. This evolution as a whole suggests that OpenMP is ready for the next generation of applications and the forthcoming cutting-edge architectures.

The International Workshop on OpenMP (IWOMP) is an annual workshop dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel programming with OpenMP. It is the premier forum to present and to discuss issues, trends, recent research ideas, and results related to parallel programming with OpenMP. We solicit quality submissions of unpublished technical papers detailing innovative, original research and development related to OpenMP.


All topics related to OpenMP are of interest, including OpenMP performance analysis and modeling, OpenMP performance and correctness tools, proposed OpenMP extensions, and OpenMP applications in any domain (e.g., scientific and numerical computation, video games, computer graphics, multimedia, information retrieval, optimization, text processing, data mining, finance, signal and image processing and machine learning).

Advances in technologies, such as multi-core processors and OpenMP devices (accelerators such as GPGPUs, DSPs or FPGAs), Multiprocessor Systems on a Chip (MPSoCs), and recent developments in OpenMP itself (e.g., devices) present new opportunities and challenges for software and hardware developers. Recent advances in the C, C++ and Fortran base languages also offer interesting opportunities and challenges to the OpenMP programming model. IWOMP 2018 particularly solicits submissions in these areas as well as ones that discuss how to apply OpenMP to additional models of parallelism such as event loops.
