PPoPP 2018
Sat 24 - Wed 28 February 2018 Vösendorf / Wien, Austria

Following its long-standing tradition, PPoPP 2017 will host a variety of high-quality workshops, allowing their participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and start new collaborations. PPoPP workshops complement the main tracks of the conference and provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized setting. Workshops cultivate new ideas and concepts for the future, optionally recorded in formal proceedings.

Call for Workshops and Tutorials

We are soliciting proposals for workshops and tutorials within the general scope of PPoPP. We encourage members of the community to submit proposals for workshops/tutorials that bring together researchers and practitioners to share their latest results and to discuss work in progress and new directions. Workshops and tutorials will be held prior to the main conference on Saturday–Sunday, February 24-25, 2018 and may be half a day or a full day in length. Please note that attendees of CGO 2018 and HPCA 2018 will also be able to register for these workshops and tutorials.
