The 27th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT)
Limassol, Cyprus
November 1-4, 2018

The purpose of PACT is to bring together researchers from architecture, compilers, applications and languages to present and discuss innovative research of common interest. PACT solicits novel papers, workshops, tutorials and entries to an ACM student research competition on a broad range of topics that include, but are not limited to:

– 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 from modern parallel applications such as, but not limited to, machine learning, data analytics, and computational biology for the design of parallel architectures and compilers

Paper submissions are due April 15, 2018. Detailed instructions for electronic submission and other important dates will be posted on the PACT conference web site ( For additional
information regarding paper submissions please contact the Program Chairs.

Proposals are solicited for tutorials and workshops to be held immediately before and/or after the conference. Interested individuals are invited to contact the Workshops Chair and the Tutorials Chair.
