Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models offer HPC
programmers a shared address space model which 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 innovative 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 of applications over various programming models.

--  Models and Language Development: Extensions to the PGAS basic model.
New PGAS languages. New models and language extensions to address new
architectures, such as multicore, heterogeneous, and reconfigurable

--  Tools: Integrated Development Environments, performance analysis
tools, and debuggers.

--  Compilers and Implementations: 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.

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission link.
Abstracts must include contact information, the full list of authors and
their affiliations, and a summary description (100-300 word abstract) of
the anticipated content of the paper.  Full papers papers should follow
the ACM SIGPLAN style and be no more than 10 pages in length. Papers must
be submitted in PDF format and must be viewable by Adobe Acrobat Reader.

PGAS 2011 will follow PACT 2011 (October 10-14) in Galveston Island,
Texas.  Galveston Island is a 45-minute drive from Houston Hobby airport,
and offers a number of indoor and outdoor attractions.  The conference
hotel for PGAS 2011 is the Tremont House, located near the Strand in the
historic part of the city.
