PACT 2019

Abstract or Paper Registration Deadline
April 11, 2019
Final Submission Deadline
April 15, 2019

The 28th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT)
Seattle, WA, USA
September 23-25, 2019

Sitting uniquely at the intersection of classical parallel architectures and compilers, the enduring PACT conference brings together researchers from architecture, compilers, programming languages, and applications to present and discuss their latest research results.

We solicit contributions in a broad range of topics, including (but not limited to) the following:
– 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 for the design of parallel architectures and compilers from modern parallel applications (e.g., machine learning, data analytics, and computational biology)
– Future parallel systems for beyond Moore’s law and/or beyond Exascale

The full CFP is available at


Information for Authors: Paper submissions are due April 15, 2019, with abstracts due April 11, 2019. 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.

Tutorials / Workshops: 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 and Tutorials Chair.

Artifact Evaluation: An important foundation of many PACT papers is the software used to support the reported results. To recognize the effort involved in developing high-quality software and to foster a culture of reproducibility, PACT19 will include a separate artifact evaluation process.

ACM Student Research Competition: The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) is a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. The SRC consists of three rounds: Online abstract submission authored by the student alone, poster session at PACT19 by authors selected abstracts, and presentation at PACT19 by authors of the top 3 posters selected by judges at the conference.
