OpenSHMEM 2017: Fourth Workshop on OpenSHMEM and Related Technologies.
"Big Compute and Big Data Convergence”


Dates:  August 7-9, 2017
Location: TBA - Maryland (Annapolis Region)
Website: http://www.csm.ornl.gov/workshops/openshmem2017/index.html

Important Dates:

April 31, 2017 - Paper submission opens
June 2, 2017 - Abstract submission deadline
June 23, 2017 - Full paper deadline

The OpenSHMEM Workshop is an annual event dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the OpenSHMEM programming 
interface and to helping shape its future direction. It is the premier venue to discuss and present the latest developments, implementation technologies, 
tools, trends, recent research ideas and results related to OpenSHMEM. This year's workshop will explore the ongoing evolution of OpenSHMEM to 
support convergence of hardware and software to support Big Compute and Big Data. The focus will be on future extensions to improve 
OpenSHMEM on current and upcoming architectures keeping in mind the trend towards the convergence. Although, this is an 
OpenSHMEM specific workshop, we welcome ideas used for other PGAS languages/APIs that may be applicable to OpenSHMEM.

Topics of interest for paper submissions include (but are not limited to) the

following areas as they relate specifically to OpenSHMEM:

	• Big data and I/O support
	• Extensions to support nonvolatile, high-bandwidth, and other types of memory
	• Scalable massive multithreading support
	• Experiences with applications from any domain, especially dynamic and irregular applications
	• Extensions to the current specification, including fault-tolerance
	• Hybrid programming models: OpenSHMEM combined with task-based models (e.g. OCR, HPX, ParSEC, etc.) or heterogeneous models (e.g. OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA, OpenMP, etc.)
	• Low-level communication layers to support OpenSHMEM or other PGAS languages/APIs
	• Experiences implementing OpenSHMEM on new architectures
	• Power / energy studies
	• Static analysis, and verification tools
	• Performance analysis tools for OpenSHMEM and/or other PGAS languages/APIs
	• Auto-tuning or optimization strategies
	• Runtime environments and schedulers
	• Benchmarks, performance evaluation, and validation suites


You are invited to submit papers in Springer LNCS style of up to 12-15 pages
describing recent work related to the workshop theme. Camera ready submissions must supply source files, 
preferably as LaTeX files in addition to the PDF file. Please use a .tgz or .zip file to bundle 
the files together. The submission should include the corresponding author’s email address. 
Each paper will be reviewed by the program committee. All accepted papers will be published 
in the workshop proceedings.

The papers will be published in a proceedings volume that will appear in Springer's LNCS series.

At least one of the authors of an accepted paper/poster is expected to register for the 
workshop and present the paper/poster. In case of any questions please contact the workshop organizers. 
In case of any questions please contact the conference organizers. Please submit your contribution 
via the EasyChair conference management system link. 
( https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=openshmem2017 ).

A Latex template for the Springer LNCS format for a conference paper can be found 
at the Springer website (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0#anchor5). 
Please use the version Proceedings and Other Multi-author Volumes - Using LaTeX2e 
and skip the front matter part.
