The 9th International Conference on Partitioned

Global Address Space Programming Models (PGAS 2015)

*http://pgas.org/conference <http://pgas.org/conference>*

September 16-18, 2015

George Washington University

Washington DC, USA

**Early Registration Deadline: September 4th

*About the Conference*

Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models offer 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 the premier forum to present and discuss ideas and
research developments in the area of: PGAS models, languages, compilers,
runtimes, applications and tools, PGAS architectures and hardware features.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Applications. New applications that are uniquely enabled by the PGAS
   model, existing applications and effective application development
   practices for PGAS codes.
   - 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
   - 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.
   - Architectures. System Architectures, Networks, and Memory
   Architectures designed to enhance and enable PGAS programming models.

The PGAS Programming Models Conference is 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
