CALL FOR PAPERS
First OpenSHMEM Workshop: Experiences, Implementations and Tools
"The Future of OpenSHMEM and Related Technologies"
Oak Ridge National Laboratory – Extreme Scale Systems Center
October 23-25th, 2013
Paper Submission Deadline September 8th, 2013
The OpenSHMEM workshop is an annual event dedicated to the promotion and advancement
of parallel programming with the OpenSHMEM programming interface and to helping shape
its future direction. 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 the
future direction of OpenSHMEM and related technologies, tools and frameworks. We will also
focus on future extensions for OpenSHMEM and hybrid programming on platforms with accelerators.
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 workshop submissions include (but are not limited to):
- Experiences in OpenSHMEM applications in any domain
- Extensions to and shortcomings of current OpenSHMEM specification
- Hybrid heterogeneous or many-core programming with OpenSHMEM and
other languages or APIs (i.e. OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA, OpenMP)
- Experiences in implementing OpenSHMEM on new architectures
- Low level communication layers to support OpenSHMEM or other PGAS languages/APIs
- Performance evaluation of OpenSHMEM or OpenSHMEM-based applications
- Power / energy studies of OpenSHMEM
- Static analysis and verification tools for OpenSHMEM
- Modeling and performance analysis tools for OpenSHMEM and/or other PGAS languages/APIs.
- Auto-tuning or optimization strategies for OpenSHMEM programs
- Runtime environments and schedulers for OpenSHMEM
- Benchmarks and validation suites for OpenSHMEM
Papers submission guidelines:
You are invited to submit papers in Springer LNCS style of up to 12-15 pages
describing recent work related to the workshop theme. Submission must be in pdf format.
Please follow the submission instructions: http://www.csm.ornl.gov/workshops/openshmem2013/papers.html .
The submission should include the contact person'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 author(s) of an accepted paper is expected to register for the workshop and present the paper.
In case of any questions please contact the workshop organizers. We also intend to publish a
special issue of a journal on OpenSHMEM and will invite a subset of authors to contribute
extended papers with significant new content for a journal publication.

Camera Ready papers due: October 10th, 2013
The first day of the workshop will be dedicated to tutorials
on OpenSHMEM and related technologies. The tutorials will cover
Introduction to OpenSHMEM, Performance Tools, Debuggers, and Error Checkers for OpenSHMEM.
In addition, we will a session on hybrid programming with OpenSHMEM
and Accelerators. We will also have a separate track for tutorials on
other PGAS languages. Please check the workshop website for more updates.
We will have a series of invited talks at the Workshop,
from Industry, Academia and U.S. National Laboratories on the
latest development of OpenSHMEM and related technologies.
These talks with be combined with the paper presentations.
