The 6th Conference on Partitioned Global Address Space Programming Models

Santa Barbara, California, USA

Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models offer HPC programmers a shared address space model that simplifies  programming while exposing data/thread locality to enhance  performance. This facilitates the development of programming  models that can deliver both productivity and performance.

The PGAS conference is a forum to present and discuss ideas and research developments in the area of PGAS models, languages, compilers, runtimes, applications and tools. Papers, posters  and demos are solicited in related areas, including but not limited to:
  • Applications. New applications that are uniquely enabled by the PGAS model, existing applications that can take advantage of the PGAS model, effective application development practices for PGAS codes, and comparative performance analysis of applications over various programming models.
  • Developments in Programming Models and Languages. PGAS models, langauge extensions, and hybrid models to address emerging architectures, such as multicore, hybrid, heterogeneous, SIMD, and reconfigurable architectures.  Extensions to the basic PGAS model.  New PGAS languagues.
  • Tools, Compilers, and Implementations. Integrated Development Environments, performance analysis tools, and debuggers.  Compiler optimizations for PGAS languages, low level libraries, memory consistency models.  Hardware support for PGAS languages, performance studies and insights, productivity studies, and language interoperability.

The Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) Programming Models Conference is the premier forum dedicated to the presentation and discussion of research work in this field. Papers should report on original research, and should include enough background material to make them accessible to the entire PGAS research community. Papers describing experiences should indicate how they illustrate general principles; papers about parallel programming foundations should indicate how they relate to practice.
