The OpenSHMEM workshop is an annual event dedicated to the promotion
and advancement of parallel programming with the OpenSHMEM programming
interface and related technologies. It is the premier venue to discuss and present
the latest developments, implementation technology, tools, trends, recent research
ideas and results related to OpenSHMEM and its use in applications. This year's workshop
will also emphasize OpenSHMEM and related technologies that are part of its ecosystem such
as PGAS languages, tools and low level network/communication frameworks. We will also focus
on extensions for OpenSHMEM that improves the programmability  and interoperability of
OpenSHMEM for systems that use  p accelerators. Although, this is ian OpenSHMEM specific workshop,
we welcome ideas used for other PGAS languages/APIs and additional network programming models
that may be applicable to topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited to):
• Communications layer/libraries
• OpenSNAPI (Smart NICs and Smart Storage)
• PGAS and related technologies
• Utilizing OpenSHMEM/UCX/Communications libraries in Computational Storage
• Scalability or performance issues (of current networks and implementations)
• Advanced Memory technologies/impacts on PGAS (Asymmetric memory)
• Extensions to support non-volatile, high-bandwidth, and other types of memory
• OpenSHMEM/PGAS and their value to ML/AI/Big Data/(I/O) support
• Potential enhancements to the current OpenSHMEM Specification
• Accelerator-spec version of OpenSHMEM.
• Fault-tolerance
• Runtime checking
• Performance analysis tools
• Applications experiences with OpenSHMEM, Rust and PGAS languages
• Experiences with applications from any domain, especially dynamic and irregular applications
• Fugaku supercomputer or HP80 ARM experiences with RDMA
• Scalable massive multithreading support
• 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.)
• Experiences implementing OpenSHMEM on new architectures
• Power / Energy studies
• Static analysis, and verification tools
• Performance analysis tools for PGAS languages/APIs
• Auto-tuning or optimization strategies
• Runtime environments and schedulers
• Benchmarks, performance evaluation, and validation suites
• New or emerging network programming models

All contributions are planned to be published in OpenSHMEM 2021 proceedings in a LNCS Springer volume and
will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. All authors must first submit a 250-word abstract to register
their papers. Once the abstract is accepted, we will encourage the authors to submit full papers. Once the abstract
is accepted, we will encourage the authors to submit full or short papers. We will accept full papers of 12-15 pages
and short papers of 6-8 pages. Preference will be given to full papers. Papers need to be formatted according to
Springer’s single-column style. Please use the paper templates available for LaTeX and
Word (https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/conference-proceedings/conference-proceedings-guidelines).  
The copyright will need to be transferred to Springer. A copyright form will be provided to authors which allows
users to self-archive.
