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
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.
