Call For Papers

The 24th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques

October 18-21, 2015
San Francisco, CA

PACT 2015 will bring together researchers from architecture, compilers, applications and languages to present and discuss innovative research of common interest. 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 and tools for parallel computer systems
* Middleware and run time system support for parallel computing
* Hardware-software co-design for parallel computing
* Hardware-software support for new compute and memory subsystems
* Hardware-software support for power management and resilience
* Support for correctness in concurrent hardware and software
* I/O issues in parallel computing and their relation to applications
* Parallel programming languages, algorithms and applications
* Application-specific parallel systems
* Applications and experimental systems studies
* Topics in non-traditional computing systems

All submissions must be made electronically through the conference web site. Abstracts must include contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations, and a description (100-400 words) of the anticipated content of the paper. Full paper submissions must be in PDF formatted for US lettersize paper. They must not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive) in standard ACM two-column conference format (preprint mode, with page number). Templates for ACM format are available for Microsoft Word, and LaTeX at (use the 9 pt template). Over-length submissions will not be accepted. Submissions will be judged on correctness, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity. For additional information regarding paper submissions, authors should contact the Program Chair.
