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 as a next generation PGAS programming model to address the needs of exascale applications. The focus will be on future extensions to improve OpenSHMEM on current and upcoming architectures. 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 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
- 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 and 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. The papers will be published in a proceedings volume that will appear in Springer's LNCS (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-0-0-0) series. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
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 program chairpersons. Please submit your contribution via the EasyChair conference management system link <https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=openshmem2015>.
