ARRAY '14: ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Libraries, Languages
and Compilers for Array Programming Co-located with PLDI 2014,
Edinburgh, UK.

A full-day workshop on Friday June 13th, following the main conference.

Focus and Description

Array-oriented programming is a powerful abstraction for compactly
implementing numerically intensive algorithms. Many modern languages
now provide some support for collective array operations, which are
used by an increasing number of programmers (and non-programmers) for
data analysis and scientific computing. This workshop is intended to
bring together researchers from many different communities, including
language designers, library developers and compiler researchers, who
are working on numeric languages such as R and MATLAB, general-purpose
dynamic languages such as Python and JavaScript, and statically typed
languages such as Haskell, Scala, and C#. The aim of this workshop is
to foster the cross-pollination of concepts across projects and
research communities and to explore new directions, such as:=20

 * Expanding the scope of array programming to encompass a wider range
   of data types and computations.
 * Transparently utilizing parallel hardware (multi-core, SIMD, GPU,
   FPGA) by leveraging the implicitly parallel semantics of array
 * Simplifying the embedding of array constructs within existing
   languages which weren't designed for numerical computing.
 * Connections between array abstractions and other models such as
   dataflow programming, stream programming, and data parallelism.
 * High-level compilation and optimization techniques for
   array-oriented programs.
 * Compilers, virtual machines and frameworks for array-oriented
   programming languages.

Important Dates

Paper submissions: Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 (Anytime on Earth)
Notification of authors: Friday, April 18th, 2014
Submission of camera-ready copies: Wednesday,May 7th, 2014
Workshop date:	Friday, June 13th, 2014


Submissions should be four to six-page papers in ACM SIGPLAN
proceedings style. Submissions may be one of the following:

 * research paper on any topic related to the focus of the workshop

 * tool description reporting on a tool relevant to the topic of the
   workshop. In the case of a tool description the workshop
   presentation should include a demo of the tool, and the submission
   should include a short appendix summarizing the tool demo. This
   appendix is for the information of the PC only, and will not be
   part of the published paper, nor does it count in the six page
   limit.  Papers can now be submitted using EasyChair


Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.=20


This will be a full day workshop. Schedule details will be available
after papers have been accepted.
