                            CALL FOR PAPERS

             7th International Conference on Partitioned Global
                 Address Space Programming Models (PGAS 2013)
                            Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
                               October 3-4, 2013



Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models offer a 
shared address
space model that simplifies programming while exposing data/thread 
locality to enhance
performance. The PGAS conference is the premier forum to present and 
discuss ideas and
research developments in the area of: PGAS models, languages, compilers, 
applications and tools, PGAS architectures and hardware features.


Submissions are invited in related areas, including, but not limited to:

* Applications. New applications that are uniquely enabled by the PGAS 
model, existing
applications and effective application development practices for PGAS 

* Performance. Analysis of application performance over various 
programming models.

* Developments in Programming Models and Languages. PGAS models, 
language extensions, and
hybrid models to address emerging architectures, such as multicore, 
hybrid, heterogeneous,
SIMD and reconfigurable architectures.

* Tools, Compilers, and Implementations. Integrated Development 
Environments, performance
analysis tools and debuggers. Compiler optimisations for PGAS languages, 
low level libraries,
memory consistency models. Hardware support for PGAS languages, 
performance studies and
insights, productivity studies, and language interoperability.


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.

There are three submission categories:

* Research papers: submission of full paper of up to 8 pages at 10pt font.

* "Hot" PGAS papers: submission of extended abstracts, 3 pages maximum 
at 10pt font. Submissions
in this category target work-in-progress research and will, if accepted, 
be given shorter
presentation slots than the full research papers.

* Posters: submission of extended abstracts, 1 page maximum at 10pt font.
Publication of conference proceedings

Accepted submissions in the "Research papers" category will be published 
in the conference
proceedings. The Programme Committee will also offer a selection of "Hot 
PGAS" submissions
the chance for publication.
