                      CALL FOR PAPERS

                 The 25th International Conference on
            Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques
                   PACT 2016
               Haifa, Israel, September 11-15, 2016.

Conference Objectives:
The purpose of PACT 2016 is to bring together researchers from
architecture, compilers, applications and languages to present and discuss
innovative research of common interest.

PACT started as a Data Flow Workshop in conjunction with ISCA 1989 but
quickly evolved into a unique venue at the intersection of classical
parallel architecture and compilers.
Looking forward to the evolving field we would like to widen the scope of
this 25th anniversary edition of PACT to include modern aspects of related
technologies such as, but not limited to, relevant aspects of machine
learning, data analytics and computational biology.

PACT solicits novel papers, workshops, tutorials and entries to an ACM
student research competition on a broad range of topics that include, but
are not limited to:

- Parallel architectures and computational models
- Compilers & tools for parallel computer systems
- Multicore, manycore, multithreaded, superscalar and VLIW architectures
- Compiler/hardware support for dealing with memory latencies
- Support for correctness in concurrent hardware and software
- Reconfigurable parallel computing - dynamic translation and optimization
- I/O issues in parallel computing and their relation to applications
- Parallel programming languages, algorithms and applications
- Middleware and runtime system support for parallel computing
- Application-specific parallel systems
- Applications and experimental systems studies of parallel processing
- Relevant aspects of distributed computing, mobile computing
- Heterogeneous systems using various types of accelerators
- Insights from modern parallel applications such as, but not limited to,
machine learning, data analytics and computational biology that can
influence the design of future parallel architectures and compilers
