Distributed & Heterogeneous Programming in C/C++ (DHPCC++19)

13 May 2019,  Northeastern University, Boston, USA


This will be the 3rd DHPCC++ event in partnership with IWOCL, the international OpenCL workshop with a focus on heterogeneous programming models for C and C++, covering all the programming models that have been designed to support heterogeneous programming in C and C++.

Many C++ programming models exist including SYCL, HPX, KoKKos, Raja, C++AMP, HCC, Boost.Compute, and CUDA. This conference aims to address the needs of both HPC and the consumer/embedded community where a number of C++ parallel programming frameworks have been developed to address the needs of multi-threaded and distributed applications. The C++11/14/17 International Standards have introduced new tools for parallel programming to the language, and the ongoing standardization effort is developing additional features which will enable support for heterogeneous and distributed parallelism into ISO C++ 20/23. This conference is an ideal place to discuss research in this domain, consolidate usage experience, and share new directions to support new hardware and memory models with the aim of passing that experience to ISO C and C++.

In previous years we have seen a range of talks including these ones now available on YouTube :

Call for Papers

You can submit your proposals for papers to the IWOCL Easychair page using the DHPCC++ check box.


Distributed & Heterogeneous Programming for C/C++ (DHPCC++) will take place on the workshop track of the International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL 19). IWOCL 2019 will be held in Boston, USA, on May 13-15, 2019.

Registration for DHPCC++’19 will be completed on the IWOCL 2019 Conference website, last year there were more than 40 attendees.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Future Heterogeneous programming C/C++ proposals (SYCL, Kokkos, Raja, HPX, C++AMP, Boost.Compute, CUDA …)
  • ISO C/C++ related proposals and development including current related concurrency, parallelism, coroutines, executors
  • C/C++ programming models for OpenCL
  • Language Design Topics such as parallelism model, data model, data movement, memory layout, target platforms, static and dynamic compilation
  • Applications implemented using these models including Neural Network, machine vision, HPC, CFD as well as exascale applications
  • C/C++ Libraries using these models
  • Integration of these models with other programming models
  • Compilation techniques to optimize kernels using any of (clang, gcc, ..) or other compilation systems
  • Performance or functional comparisons between any of these programming models
  • Implementation of these models on novel architectures (FPGA, DSP, …) such as clusters, NUMA and PGAS
  • Using these models in fault-tolerant systems
