Workshop + Tutorial Proposals

The 23rd International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT) is seeking proposals for workshops and tutorials to accompany the conference. Workshops and tutorials will be held on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, and may be a half-day or full-day in length. We encourage members of the community to consider submitting proposals for workshops and tutorials that bring together researchers and practitioners working on research topics of interest to the PACT community.

Important Dates

  • Proposal Deadline: Sunday, March 16, 2014
  • Acceptance Notification: Friday, March 21, 2014

Proposal Submission

All proposals should be no longer than one page, in PDF format and must provide the following information:

  • Workshop or tutorial name along with a brief 150 to 200-word abstract describing the event suitable for the conference web site.
  • If applicable, provide a description of past versions of the activity, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance, and information with which conference the workshop/tutorial was co-located.
  • Brief rationale for the event and for co-locating with PACT.
  • Names and affiliations of main organizers and, where relevant, tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible).
  • Event format, i.e., length of event (half-day or full-day), expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, number of days, etc.
  • Expected number of submissions and participants.
  • For workshops: A draft Call For Papers (CFP), as complete as possible and submission/reviewing deadlines (internal and external).

Proposals should be emailed to the Workshops + Tutorials Chair, Andreas Moshovos.
