Sequential programming has long benefited from high-level programming techniques and tools that have made today's immense range of software economically viable. Two decades of research into high-level parallel programming (algorithmic skeletons, parallel extensions of functional languages, such as Haskell and ML, or parallel logic and constraint programming, parallel execution of declarative programs such as SQL queries, etc.) has produced methods and tools that improve the price/performance ratio of parallel software, and broaden the range of target applications. Several emerging domains, such as Grid Computing, are currently raising new issues. The PAPP workshop focuses on practical aspects of high-level parallel programming: design, implementation and optimization of high-level programming languages and tools, applications in all fields of high-performance computing, benchmarks and experiments using these high-level tools.
