Call for Papers

The OpenSHMEM workshop is an annual event dedicated to the promotion and advancement of parallel programming with the OpenSHMEM programming interface and related technologies. 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 OpenSHMEM and related technologies that are part of its ecosystem such as PGAS languages, tools and low level network/communication frameworks. We will also focus on extensions for OpenSHMEM that improve the programmability and interoperability of OpenSHMEM for systems that use accelerators. Although this is an OpenSHMEM specific workshop, we welcome ideas used for other PGAS languages/APIs and additional network programming models that may be applicable to topics of interest for workshop submissions include (but are not limited to):
