Travel Information
    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 cOMPunity 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.

    NEW   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 (OMPtalks), 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 (OMPlab).
    In parallel to the OMPlab 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.

   OMPlab    Posters
    For a contribution to OMPtalks 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 OMPtalks page for further information.

    For participating in the OMPlab 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 OMPlab page for further information.

    During both OMPtalks and OMPlabs there is an opportunity of presenting posters. 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 OMPtalks or during OMPlab or during the whole week.
