Fifth European Workshop on OpenMP

Aachen University, Germany

September 22-26, 2003

Slides and papers of OMPtalks are available online now!

Slides of OMPlab are available online now!

      OpenMP is an Application Program Interface (API), which supports shared-memory parallel programming in Fortran, C and C++ on all architectures. It is a portable, scalable programming model that gives programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing shared-memory parallel applications.
        This series of workshops is designed as a forum for discussion of the latest developments in OpenMP, in its compilers, tools and applications. This year's event is hosted by the

Center for Computing and Communication
Aachen University (RWTH)
      , Germany. It is part of the
      initiative whose main objective is the dissemination and exchange of information about OpenMP.
    Participants should have some basic knowledge of OpenMP programming in C/C++ or Fortran.

      We extended this year's EWOMP to a full week in order to try something new:
      After a two days "conventional" workshop part with invited and contributed talks (
      ), we want to take the opportunity of having many OpenMP experts in the fields of compilers, tools and applications on board, to altogether "get our hands dirty" and do real work in a three days hands-on lab session (

      In parallel to the OMP
      hands-on session, there is plenty of time for additional working groups. It is up to the participants to ignite controversies and lively discussions about OpenMP's present and future. Any ideas are welcome.

      You are also invited to submit proposals for
poster presentations
      through the whole week.

      For a contribution to
      please submit an extended abstract not larger than 5 pages by June 29.

      Upon acceptance the authors are asked to submit their final papers for the workshop proceedings by August 26. The proceedings of the presented papers will be distributed at the workshop.

      As in previous editions, EWOMP'03 will publish extended versions of selected papers in a special issue of
Scientific Programming
      (search for publication).

      Have a look at the
      page for further information.

      For participating in the
      hands-on session, we would like to ask you to describe your contribution (up to 5 pages) and give a short oral introduction. We plan to organize the participation in this lab session in project groups of 1-3 persons. Have a look at the
      page for further information.

      During both OMP
      and OMP
      there is an opportunity of presenting
      . We provide nice movable walls (width=118 cm, height=145 cm, color=dark blue) for you. Please submit a short abstract of about 1 page by June 16 and specify if you want to present your posters during OMP
      or during OMP
      or during the whole week.

      Please send all submissions to
