7th International Workshop on Polyhedral Compilation Techniques

January 23, 2017 | Stockholm, Sweden

In conjunction with HiPEAC 2017, January 23-25, 2017

HiPEAC 2017

Polyhedral techniques have gained attention due to the rise of multi-core processors and other architectures that require parallelism and more complex schedules for data locality. At the heart of the polyhedral model is an abstraction of programs that enables powerful analysis and scheduling of applications. Recent developments in the polyhedral model research area includes automatic parallelization targeting various platforms, program verification, and hardware synthesis. IMPACT is a unique workshop aimed to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in polyhedral techniques to exchange ideas.

Call For Paper Information

We welcome both theoretical and experimental papers on all aspects of polyhedral compilation and optimization. We also welcome submissions describing preliminary results, crazy new ideas, position papers, experience reports, and available tools, with an aim to stimulate discussions, collaborations, and advances in the field. The following illustrate potential IMPACT papers:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


Submissions should not exceed 8 pages (recommended 6 pages), excluding references, formatted as per ACM proceedings format. When preparing your manuscript, please use the "Tighter Alternate style" available from ACM and a font size of 9pt or higher.

Submissions should be in PDF format and printable on US letter or A4 sized paper. Submission deadline has passed.

Proceedings will be posted online. If the final version of an accepted paper does not sufficiently address the comments of the reviewers, then it may be accompanied by a note from the program committee. Publication at IMPACT will not prevent later publication in conferences or journals of the presented work. However, simultaneous submission to IMPACT and other workshop, conference, or journal is often prohibited by the policy of other venues. For instance, a paper with significant overlap with IMPACT submission cannot be sent to PLDI 2017 or any other overlapping SIGPLAN event.

We will also continue the poster teasers we started two years ago. Authors of the rejected papers that still plan to attend HiPEAC will have an opportunity to present their submission in the HiPEAC poster session. We encourage poster presentations by providing a short (3 min.) slot in the workshop to advertise the posters. If possible, posters related to IMPACT will be gathered at the poster session close to each other.
