Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation, we are sad to announce that FHPNC 2020 is cancelled. We looked into alternatives, but we think the best course of action is to cancel it for this year and be back at next year’s ICFP.
The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional High-Performance and Numerical Computing aims to bring together researchers and practitioners exploring or employing the use of functional or declarative programming languages or techniques in scientific computing, and specifically in the domains of high-performance computing and numerical programming.
The purpose of the meeting is to enable sharing of results, experiences, and novel ideas about how high-level, declarative techniques can help make high-performance, distributed/parallel, or numerically-intensive code dealing with computationally challenging problems easier to write, read, maintain, or portable to new architectures. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, relevant compiler technologies, runtime systems (including fault tolerance mechanisms and those supporting distributed or parallel computation), domain-specific languages (embedded or otherwise), type systems, formal methods, and libraries (e.g. for exact or interval arithmetic).
This event, now in its second year, is originally a merge of two workshops that took place during previous editions of ICFP : FHPC (Functional High-Performance Computing) and NPFL (Numerical Programming in Functional Languages), and as such it aims to foster the exchange of ideas between the two communities.
