Call For Papers

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 interoperate with other programming models and hybrid architectures. The focus will be on future extensions to improve OpenSHMEM on current and upcoming architectures keeping in mind the trend towards accelerators. Although, this is an OpenSHMEM specific workshop, we welcome ideas used for other PGAS languages/APIs that may be applicable to OpenSHMEM.

Paper Submissions

Topics of interest for paper and poster 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, highbandwidth, 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 faulttolerance
* Hybrid programming models: OpenSHMEM combined with taskbased models (e.g. OCR, HPX, ParSEC, etc.) or heterogeneous models (e.g. OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA, OpenMP, etc.)
* Lowlevel 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.
* Autotuning 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. In case of any questions please contact the program chairpersons. Please submit your contribution via the EasyChair conference management system link (
