2019 International Workshop on Performance, Portability and Productivity in HPC (P3HPC)

Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colorado, USA

Friday, 22 November 2019

held in conjunction with

SC19: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis


We invite authors to submit original papers for potential presentation as part of the P3HPC workshop. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published by IEEE Technical Consortium on High Performance Computing (TCHPC) and the IEEE Explore Digital Library.

TCHPC imposes several requirements:

  • Papers may be at most 10 pages long, including tables, figures and appendices. References and the required Reproducibilty Appendix (see below) are not included in this maximum page count. Papers must be at least 6 pages long, not including references and the Reproducibility Appendix.
  • Submissions must be formatted according to the most recent IEEE Conference Proceedings format as implemented by their IEEE Conference Proceedings Word and LaTex/BibTex templates that implement the required format (use "conference" mode with LaTeX). Authors must not change the template, e.g., to change fonts, spacing, margins.

Reproducibility Appendix

The P3HPC workshop will follow a reproducibility initiative similar to the SC19 Technical Papers Reproducibilty Initiative: authors are encouraged to submit an appendix of no more than two pages detailing available artifacts (software, data, and documentation) and any steps taken to increase the trustworthiness of their results.

The nature of performance portability involves demonstrated performance across multiple architectures, hence authors should describe artifact components across all architectures employed, such as compiler, runtime and application configurations. Authors should clearly document and explain the reasoning behind such configuration differences, to assist future researchers seeking to reproduce their experiments on future architectures.

A reproducibility appendix template can be found here.


Papers may be submitted electronically using the SC19 Submissions web site.
