Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models offer a shared address space model that simplifies programming while exposing data/thread locality to enhance performance. The PGAS conference is the premier forum to present and discuss ideas and research developments in the area of: PGAS models, languages, compilers, runtimes, applications and tools, PGAS architectures and hardware features.

The conference programme offers talks on the following topics:

  • Applications. New applications that are uniquely enabled by the PGAS model, existing applications and effective application development practices for PGAS codes.
  • Performance. Analysis of application performance over various programming models.
  • Developments in Programming Models and Languages. PGAS models, language extensions, and hybrid models to address emerging architectures, such as multicore, hybrid, heterogeneous, SIMD and reconfigurable architectures.  
  • Tools, Compilers, and Implementations. Integrated Development Environments, performance analysis tools and debuggers. Compiler optimisations for PGAS languages, low level libraries, memory consistency models. Hardware support for PGAS languages, performance studies and insights, productivity studies, and language interoperability
