=== Call for Papers === 

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 processors.

- 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. 

PGAS 2011 will be co-located with PACT 2011 ( http://www.pactconf.org), which will be 
held October 10-14, 2011 in Galveston Island, Texas. Galveston Island is a 45-minute drive 
from Houston Hobby airport, and offers a number of indoor and outdoor attractions.

=== Submission Info: ===

All submissions must be made electronically through the submission link in the web site

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 (http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm)
and be no more than 10 pages in length. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and must be 
viewable by Adobe Acrobat Reader.
