  • Aims and Scope

    As processor and system manufacturers increase the amount of both inter- and intra-chip parallelism it becomes crucial to provide the software industry with high-level, clean and efficient tools for parallel programming. Parallel and distributed programming methodologies are currently dominated by low-level techniques such as send/receive message passing, or equivalently unstructured shared memory mechanisms. Higher-level, structured approaches offer many possible advantages and have a key role to play in the scalable exploitation of ubiquitous parallelism.

    Since 2001 the HLPP series of workshops/symposia has been a forum for researchers developing state-of-the-art concepts, tools and applications for high-level parallel programming. The general emphasis is on software quality, programming productivity and high-level performance models. The 15th Symposium on High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications will be held in Porto, Portugal.


    HLPP 2022 invites papers on all topics in high-level parallel programming, its tools and applications including, but not limited to, the following aspects:
    • High-level programming and performance models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools
    • Declarative parallel programming methodologies
    • Algorithmic skeletons and constructive methods
    • Declarative parallel programming languages and libraries: semantics and implementation
    • Verification of declarative parallel and distributed programs
    • Software synthesis, automatic code generation for parallel programming
    • Model-driven software engineering with parallel programs
    • High-level programming models for heterogeneous/hierarchical platforms
    • High-level parallel methods for large structured and semi-structured datasets
    • Applications of parallel systems using high-level languages and tools
    • Formal models of timing and real-time verification for parallel systems

    Paper Submission

    Papers submitted to HLPP 2022 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else.

    Manuscripts must be prepared with the Springer IJSS latex macro package using the single column option (\documentclass[smallextended]{svjour3}) and submitted via the EasyChair Conference Management System as one pdf file. The strict page limit for initial submission and camera-ready version is 20 pages in the aforementioned format.

    Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews by members of the international technical program committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and quality of presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the HLPP 2022 symposium and present the paper.

    After the symposium the authors of the accepted papers will have ample time to revise their papers and to incorporate the potential comments and remarks of their colleagues. We expect the HLPP 2022 special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP) to appear online-first by the end of the year and the printed edition in mid-2023.

    Accepted Papers


    Accepted papers will be distributed as informal draft proceedings during the symposium and will be published by Springer in a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP).


    HLPP 2022 will be an in-person event only, thus all participants will need to be present in Porto, Portugal. A virtual option will not be available.

    At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must register in the event and present the paper. Moreover, the authors may not use a single registration for multiple papers.

    The registration fee is 350 euros and the registration form will be open until June 24, 2022. For any further information, please send a message to HLPP2022.


    HLPP 2022 will be hosted by the Dept. of Computer Science (GPS coords 41.152545, -8.640758 see Google maps) of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP).

    Participants may reserve rooms in several of the nearby Hotels. As the symposium will be held in the tourist season, the organizers recommend a timely reservation of rooms.
