Lublin, Poland,
September 10-13, 2017
http://ppam.pl

The PPAM 2017 conference, twelfth in a series, will cover topics in parallel and distributed computing, including theory and applications, as well as applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms, and software tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization of modern parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as on large-scale applications, including big data and machine learning problems.

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences series. In 2017 the PPAM conference will take place in Lublin, the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, an academic and cultural centre, proud of its rich history and picturesque Old Town.

The PPAM 2017 conference is organized by Czestochowa University of Technology together with Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin, under the patronage of Committee of Informatics of Polish Academy of Sciences, in technical cooperation with IEEE Computer Society and ICT COST Action IC1305 "Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS)".

PGAS AAP - Workshop on PGAS programming model and its application to HPC

in conjunction with 12th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PARALLEL PROCESSING AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS

September 10-13, 2017, Lublin , Poland

CALL FOR PAPERS

PGAS APP is a full-day workshop to be held at the PPAM 2017 focusing on PGAS (Partitioned Global Address Space) programming model and its application for large-scale parallel systems and multicore processors.

Its goal is to bring together researchers working in the area of PGAS programming paradigm to parallelize large scale applications. The workshop focuses on PGAS programming languages, tools and libraries with the special focus on applications developed within this programming model. The workshop is open to any PGAS languages, with the special focus of new solutions. This workshop will feature papers that explore experiences from application developers in the use of the PGAS programming model for the development of scalable codes. The papers presented practical implementations, scalability and parallelization efficiency are foreseen.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • PGAS Languages and library implementations and their evaluation,
  • Applications development experience with PGAS programming model,
  • PGAS programming model for heterogenous systems,
  • Comparisons between PGAS and other programming models,
  • Benchmark suites and performance studies for PGAS programming model,
  • Optimization techniques.

Please submit full papers via the PPAM Conference submission system (formatted according to the PPAM specification), not previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Link to EasyChair...

Please acknowledge the workshop chair (address below) by sending an email including a cover page with the title, abstract, names and e-mail of the authors. Please submit pdf files.
