Video Presentation Guidelines
To enable us to provide all the IWOCL and SYCLcon submissions as on-demand video presentations we ask that the authors of all the papers, technical presentations and posters provide a video recording. The video can be created using any authoring tool that supports the guidelines below, including Microsoft Powerpoint’s inbuilt recording/export feature, see Microsoft Help for details.
- 1080p (1920×1080) resolution
- MP4 file preferred, or any other YouTube supported video format
- Include the slides and an accompanying narration
- Min length: 20 mins (papers and technical presentations), 10 mins (posters)
- Max length: 45 mins (all)
- The first slide should include:
- Submission title
- Presenters name
- Organisation name
- Picture of the presenter (min size: 200 x 200px)
- File name format: “iwocl-syclcon-2020-authorSurname-easychairSubmissionID”
Deadline for Submission: Friday April 10, 2020
Where to send the video: Please email email@example.com with the Subject: IWOCL-2020-Video, and include a link to a shared location where the file can be downloaded from. By providing a video the author grants IWOCL a non-exclusive license to publish the video online. If you have any questions about the video recording please email: Tim Lewis
IWOCL is the annual gathering of international community of OpenCL, SYCL and SPIR developers, researchers, suppliers and Khronos Working Group members to share best practice, and to promote the evolution and advancement of the Open Computing Language (OpenCL) standard. The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in contributing to and participating in the community and is the premier forum for the presentation and discussion of new designs, trends, algorithms, programming models, software, tools and ideas relating to OpenCL. Additionally, the conference provides a formal channel for community feedback to the Khronos Group, the industry body responsible for the standard.
SYCLcon is where the industry’s leading experts gather to support the SYCL standard for C++ programming of heterogeneous platforms and its ecosystem. The conference offers an opportunity for the community to come together to present, discuss and learn all aspects of using SYCL, from integration and performance to its programmability benefits. The presentations will cover a range of topics including research, reference implementations, supporting libraries, frameworks and general application development. SYCLcon is an integral part of IWOCL and builds on the success of the previous DHPCC++ workshops.

Topics of Interest
Submissions related to any aspect of using OpenCL and SYCL (including other parallel C++ paradigms, SPIR, Vulkan and OpenCL/SYCL-based libraries) are of interest, including, but not limited to: case-studies of their use in applications, software tools, programming methods, debugging, performance analysis, and integration.
- Scientific and high-performance computing (HPC) applications
- Machine Learning Training and Inferencing
- The use of OpenCL and SYCL on CPU, GPU, DSP, NNP, FPGA and hardware accelerators for mobile, embedded, cloud, edge and automotive platforms
- Development tools, including debuggers and profilers
- HPC frameworks developed on top of OpenCL, SYCL or Vulkan
- The emerging use of Vulkan in scientific and high-performance computing (HPC)
Submission Types and Author Guidelines
The conference supports four types of submissions all of which will undergo peer review by at least three members of the Program Committee comprising world-leaders in the field of OpenCL. The following types of submission are welcome:
- Research Papers
- Technical Presentations
- Tutorials (1/4 , 1/2 or full day)
Full Academic Papers
- We solicit the submission of full-length unpublished academic/technical papers detailing original research related to OpenCL, SYCL and related topics. Please submit full papers for review, which should be no longer than 12 pages using the ACM SIG proceedings style. The LaTeX and Word templates are available here (for LATEX select the SIGCONF template).
- Submissions require a 1-page abstract. Additional supporting materials may be submitted as a single .pdf document. The technical presentation are 20-25 mins in length with an additional 5 mins for Q&A. Final versions of the presentation are required to be provided to the organisers at the conference (please bring ppt and pdf format slides on a USB stick).
- The agenda includes a day of tutorials that provide developers an opportunity to spend more time exploring a specific OpenCL or SYCL related topic – Submissions require a 1-page abstract and should include the preferred length of the session (1/4 , 1/2 or full day). Additional supporting materials may be submitted as a single .pdf document
- To encourage discussion of the latest developments in the OpenCL community, there is a poster session running in parallel to the conference. Please submit an abstract which should not exceed 500 words. Additional supporting materials may be submitted as a single .pdf document. All accepted posters will be included in the proceedings. Posters should be either A1 or A0 and can be displayed at the venue in either Landscape or Portrait mode. The organisers request that all accepted authors arrange printing of their poster and that it should be brought to the registration desk on arrival. Note: A1 = 594 x 841mm (23.4 x 33.1 in), A0 = 841 x 1189mm (33.1 x 46.8).
The selection of research papers will be based on the full paper and should cover original, unpublished work. All other submissions (posters, technical presentations and tutorials) will be selected based on the submitted short abstract and do not have to cover unpublished work but should be topical and be appropriate for a technical audience.
The IWOCL program committee will review submissions based on the following criteria;
- Concept of the submission and its relevance and timeliness
- Technical depth
- Clarity of the submission
- Research findings and results of your work
- Your credentials and expertise in the subject matter
The IWOCL conference proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library.
How to Submit
