Abstract

Computational Science applications are more and more complex to develop and require more and more computing power. Parallel and grid computing are solutions to the increasing need for computing power. High level languages offer a high degree of abstraction which ease the development of complex systems. Moreover, being based on formal semantics, it is possible to certify the correctness of critical parts of the applications. Algorithmic skeletons, parallel extensions of functional languages such as Haskell and ML, parallel logic and constraint programming, parallel execution of declarative programs such as SQL queries, genericity and meta-programming in object-oriented languages, etc. have produced methods and tools that improve the price/performance ratio of parallel software, and broaden the range of target applications. The PAPP workshop focuses on practical aspects of high-level parallel programming: design, implementation and optimization of high-level programming languages, libraries, middlewares and tools (performance predictors working on high-level parallel/grid source code, visualisations of abstract behaviour, automatic hotspot detectors, high-level GRID resource managers, compilers, automatic generators, etc.), applications in all fields of computational science, benchmarks and experiments. Research on high-level grid programming is particularly relevant as well as domain specific parallel software. The aim of all these languages and tools is to improve and ease the development of applications. Thus the Fifth PAPP workshop focuses on applications. The PAPP workshop is aimed both at researchers involved in the development of high level approaches for parallel and grid computing and computational science researchers who are potential users of these languages and tools. http://f.loulergue.free.fr/PAPP2008/index.html
