OpenSHMEM 2014

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.


Paper sumbissions are closed.

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

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 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 on OpenSHMEM in the Journal of Scientific Programming and will invite a subset of authors to contribute extended papers with significant new content for a journal publication.

In case of any questions please contact the conference organizers. Please submit your contribution via the EasyChair conference management system link.
