PACT 2023 will be held in Vienna, Austria, during October 21?25, 2023.
Submissions due: April 1, 2023
The International Conference on Parallel Architectures and
CompilationTechniques (PACT) is a unique technical conference sitting at
theintersection of hardware and software, with a special emphasis
onparallelism. The PACT conference series brings together researchers
fromcomputer architectures, compilers, execution environments,
programminglanguages, and applications, to present and discuss their latest
PACT 2023 will be held as an in-person event in the beautiful city
ofVienna. At least one of the authors of accepted papers will be required
toattend the conference, and we encourage all the authors to participate.
Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Parallel architectures- Compilers and tools for parallel computer
systems- Applications and experimental systems studies of parallel
processing- Computational models for concurrent execution- Multicore,
multithreaded, superscalar, and VLIW architectures- Compiler and 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- Distributed computing architectures
and systems- Heterogeneous systems using various types of accelerators-
In-core and in-chip accelerators and their exploitation- Applications of
machine learning to parallel computing- Large scale data processing,
including computing in memory accelerators- Insights for the design of
parallel architectures and compilers frommodern parallel applications-
Neuromorphic computing both as an application for and a tool applied
toarchitectures and compilers.
## Submitting your work
Paper submissions are due April 1, 2023 by posting on theconference
submission site. Please make sure that your paper satisfies allthe
following requirements before being submitted. Submissions not adheringto
these submission guidelines will be rejected by the submission systemand/or
subject to an administrative rejection.
- The paper must have an abstract under 300 words.- The paper must be
original material that has not been previouslypublished in another
conference or journal, nor is currently under reviewby another conference
or journal. You may submit material presentedpreviously at a workshop
without copyrighted proceedings.- The submission is limited to ten (10)
pages in the ACM 8.5? x 11? format(US letter size paper) using 9pt font,
with no more than 7 lines per inch.This page limit applies to all content
NOT INCLUDING references, and thereis no page limit for references. Your
paper must print satisfactorily onboth Letter paper (8.5?x11?) and A4 paper
(8.27?x11.69?). The boxcontaining the text should be no larger than
7.15?x9? (18.2cm x 22.9cm).Templates are available on the ACM Author
Gateway.- Paper submission is double-blind to reduce reviewer bias against
authorsor institutions. Thus, the submissions cannot include author
names,institutions or hints based on references to prior work. If authors
areextending their own work, they need to reference and discuss the past
workin third person, as if they were extending someone else?s research.
Werealize that for some papers it will still reveal authorship, but as
longas an effort was made to follow these guidelines, the submission will
notbe penalized.- Anonymized supplementary material may be provided in a
single PDF fileuploaded at paper submission time, containing material that
supports thecontent of the paper, such as proofs, additional experimental
results, datasets, etc. Reviewers are not required to read the
supplementary materialbut may choose to do so.- Please make sure that the
labels on your graphs are readable without theaid of a magnifying glass.-
The paper must be submitted in PDF. We cannot accept any other format,and
we must be able to print the document just as we receive it. We suggestthat
you use only the four widely used printer fonts: Times, Helvetica,Courier
Poster submissions must conform to the same format restrictions, but maynot
exceed 2 pages in length. Paper submissions that are not accepted
forregular presentations will automatically be considered for posters;
authorswho do not want their paper considered for the poster session
shouldindicate this in their abstract submission. Two-page summaries of
acceptedposters will be included in the conference proceedings.
Please submit your work via the conference submission site.
## Conflicts of interest
Authors must identify any conflicts-of-interest with PC members andexternal
members of the community. We ask all authors of a submitted paperto
register their conflicts at the submission site. If a paper is found tohave
an undeclared conflict that causes a problem OR if a paper is found
todeclare false conflicts in order to abuse or game the review system,
thepaper may be rejected. Conflicts of interests are defined according
toACM?s conflict of interest policy.
## Artifact evaluation
Authors of accepted PACT 2023 papers are encouraged to formally submittheir
supporting materials for Artifact Evaluation. The Artifact
Evaluationprocess is run by a separate committee whose task is to assess
theavailability, functionality, and reproducibility of the work
andexperimental results described in the paper. Submission is voluntary.
Westrongly encourage authors to consider submitting artifacts for their
work,including simulators for new architectural designs and extensions.
We encourage authors to prepare their artifacts for submission and makethem
more portable, reusable and customizable using open-source
frameworksincluding Docker, OCCAM, reprozip, CodeOcean and CK.
Papers that successfully go through the Artifact Evaluation process
willreceive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Authors
ofsuch papers will have an option to include their Artifact Appendix to
thefinal paper (up to 2 pages). Authors are also encouraged to make
theirartifacts publicly available.
## Key dates

## Publication policies
PACT is supported by both ACM and IEEE and articles accepted forpublication
are available on both the ACM digital library and IEEE Xplore.By submitting
your article to an PACT, you are hereby acknowledging thatyou and your
co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies,including ACM?s new
Publications Policy on Research Involving HumanParticipants and Subjects,
and the IEEE Publication Policies. Allegedviolations of these policies will
be investigated by officers of ACM orIEEE and may result in a full
retraction of your paper, in addition toother potential penalties, as per
Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you
cancomplete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has
beeninvolved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment
tocollect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection
processhas started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We
arecommitted to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution
andcontribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization;
yourORCID ID will help in these efforts.
