PACT is a long-running and unique conference at the intersection of classical parallel architectures and compilers that brings together researchers from architecture, compilers, programming languages, and applications to present and discuss their latest research results. Applications as a driver for innovations in architectures and compilers is an important theme of the conference.

We solicit contributions in a broad range of topics, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Parallel architectures and computational models
  • Compilers and tools for parallel computer systems
  • Multicore, multithreaded, superscalar, and VLIW architectures
  • Compiler/hardware support for hiding memory latencies
  • Support for correctness in hardware and software
  • Reconfigurable parallel computing
  • Dynamic translation and optimization
  • I/O issues in parallel computing and their relation to applications
  • Parallel programming languages, algorithms and applications
  • Middleware and run time system support for parallel computing
  • Application-specific parallel systems
  • Applications and experimental systems studies of parallel processing
  • Relevant aspects of distributed computing and mobile computing
  • Heterogeneous systems using various types of accelerators
  • Insights for the design of parallel architectures and compilers from modern parallel applications (e.g., machine learning, data analytics, and computational biology)
  • Future parallel systems for beyond Moore’s law and/or beyond Exascale

Information for Authors:

Paper submissions are due April 15, 2019. Detailed instructions for electronic submission, templates, other information are posted on the Paper Submission Information page [Click here for details]

Artifact Evaluation:

An important foundation of many PACT papers is the software used to support the reported results. To recognize the effort involved in developing high-quality software and to foster a culture of reproducibility, PACT19 will include a separate artifact evaluation process.

AE submissions are due July 22, 2019. Detailed instructions are posted on the Artifact Evaluation Process page [Click here for details]
