[llvm-dev] LLVM-HPC2017 Workshop at SC17 - Call for papers

Hi, everyone,

A quick reminder: The deadline for paper submissions for this year's 
LLVM in HPC workshop at SC17 is just over three weeks away. If you've 
been considering writing a paper, please do! Looking for a good place to 
write up some of your work with more focus on the implementation 
details? Here's a good place. Not sure if your topic is in scope? It 
probably is, but please feel free to ask me.

The proceeding of this workshop are published by ACM/IEEE.

If you don't have enough for a pull paper, we're also having lightning 
talks this year (although those are not part of the published proceedings).

Thanks again,
