IWOMP 2016 – 12th International Workshop on OpenMP
October 5-7, 2016
Nara, Japan


For many years, OpenMP has provided a very rich and flexible programming model for shared memory architectures. OpenMP 4.0 was a major advance that added two new forms of parallelism and OpenMP 4.5 added substantial improvements for them and other aspects of the specification. OpenMP now includes a rich set of device constructs to support heterogeneous systems like GPUs,FPGAs, DSPs, and SIMD constructs to support vector units in addition to the support for task-based parallelism that has been present since OpenMP 3.0.

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 discuss issues, trends, recent research ideas, and results related to parallel programming with OpenMP. We solicit submissions of unpublished technical papers detailing innovative, original research and development related to OpenMP.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 2016 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.

Paper Submission and Registration

Submitted papers for review should be limited to 12 pages and follow LNCS guidelines. Submission deadline is May 18th, 2016 May 25th, 2016 (AOE).
