OpenSHMEM 2016: Third workshop on OpenSHMEM and Related Technologies.

"Enhancing OpenSHMEM for Hybrid Environments"
August 2-4, 2016

Deadline for hotel registration (group rate): July 8, 2016

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.

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
  • 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

The workshop will be held at the Hotel at Arundel Preserve - 7795 Arundel Mills Boulevard Hanover, MD 21076
