ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming

Short Presentations on Emerging Research Topics

We will be holding two sessions on short presentations of emerging research topics. The goal is to allow researchers to present short summaries of current research projects. We have set aside two sessions (Thursday and Friday morning from 9:00 to 9:45) for these presentations. See the (conference program ) for the precise dates and times.

The program chair (Martin Rinard) will accept email requests for slots in these sessions. Please include the title of the talk, the presenter, and the affiliation of the presenter in the request.

Our goal is to allow anyone to speak on any topic of their choosing. We encourage but do not require presenters to present research that may be of interest to PPoPP conference attendees. We will take the available time (90 minutes), divide it by the number of presentations, and give each presenter that much time, subject to the constraint that each presenter will be given at least five minutes. We will therefore accept at most 18 presentations. So, if we get nine presentations, each presenter will be given ten minutes; if we get 18 presentations, each presenter will be given 5 minutes. If we get more than 18 presentations, the program chair will arbitrarily select 18 for presentation at the conference. There will be no systematic attempt to filter for quality, relevance, or any other property of the proposed presentations.

Our target acceptance notification date is May 23, and we hope to accept all proposed presentations subject to time restrictions.
