The FHPC workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring uses of functional (or more generally, declarative or high-level) programming technology in application domains where large-scale computations arise naturally and high performance is essential. Such computations would typically – but not necessarily – involve execution on highly parallel systems ranging from multi-core multi-processor systems to graphics accelerators (GPGPUs), reconfigurable hardware (FPGAs), large-scale compute clusters or any combination thereof. It is becoming apparent that radically new and well founded methodologies for programming such systems are required to address their inherent complexity and to reconcile execution performance with programming productivity.
The aim of the meeting is to enable sharing of results, experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative specifications of computationally challenging problems can serve as highly transparent, maintainable, and portable code that approaches (or even exceeds) the performance of machine-oriented imperative implementations.
The 2012 FHPC workshop comes with a particular theme motivated by geographic co-location with the newly established HIPERFIT Research Centre for Functional High-Performance Computing for Financial Information Technology (www.hiperfit.dk) at the University of Copenhagen. Hence, we particularly encourage submissions with a
background in computational finance. Notwithstanding, the workshop welcomes submissions from other application domains as much as general-purpose work on the theory and practice of declarative approaches to high-performance computing.
