The 7th International Conference on Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) Programming Models will be held in Edinburgh on the 3rd-4th October 2013.

This is the first time the conference is being held outside the US and EPCC is very excited by the prospect of hosting PGAS 2013!
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 Call for Papers for the conference has now been published and submissions are invited in related areas, including, but not limited to:
  •  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.
If you are working on research in any of the related areas, please think about submitting a paper or extended abstract and contribute to the conference programme. Or if you have an interest in PGAS and the role it plays in reaching the Exascale, this event will be for you as well.
Edinburgh is a beautiful city, so learning about new trends in HPC can also easily be combined with a spot of sightseeing! 
The local organising committee are already working hard on making PGAS 2013 a success - for more information and details on the event please visit
