WPMVP 2016: 3rd Workshop on Programming Models for SIMD/Vector Processing

Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) parallelism is a major factor in the arithmetic peak performance of modern CPUs, but there is no “silver bullet” for leveraging it in the optimal way for improved application performance. Jan Eitzinger (formerly Treibig) of LIKWID fame is organizing the 3rd workshop on programming models for SIMD/vector processing, co-located with PPoPP 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The first two workshops in this series in 2014 and 2015 brought together an interesting mix of developers and vendors, sparking lively discussions. This time the workshop proceedings will again be published in the ACM digital library. For more details please take a look at the WPMVP 2016 website.
