PACT 2023 will be held in Vienna, Austria, during October 21?25, 2023.
Submissions due: April 1, 2023https://pact2023.github.io/submit/
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 researchresults.
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 and Symbol.
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

## Code of Conduct
All individuals participating in PACT or involved with its organization areexpected to follow the
- ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct;- The IEEE Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct; and the- Policy Against Harassment at ACM activities.
## 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 their policies.
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.
