    About PACT

    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 features cutting-edge research 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 (esp. with concurrency)
    • Reconfigurable 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
    • High performance application specific systems
    • Applications and experimental systems studies
    • Non-traditional computing systems topics

    Authors of selected PACT 2007 papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP).


    Support provided by PACT 2007 sponsors will be used to provide travel and registration grants to students. More information about travel grants and links to the on-line application are available here.

    PACT 2007 industrial sponsors include EMIC (European Microsoft Innovation Center), Google, IBM Research, and Intel. PACT 2007 is also sponsored by NSF, IEEE CS , IEEE TCPP , IEEE TCCA , SIGARCH , IFIP WG 10.3 , the Transilvania University of Brasov, and the Parasol Lab, CS@TAMU and the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. We are currently seeking additional sponsors; please contact the conference general chair if you are interested in sponsoring PACT 2007.

    PACT 2007 is Dedicated to the Memory of Irina Athanasiu. Irina was a computer science professor at the Politehnica University, Bucharest. She taught, mentored and advised generations of Romanian computer scientists who have achieved prominent positions in academia and industry throughout the world. She dedicated her life to her students and our profession.
