August 29, 2019 — The organizing committee of PACT’19 invites you to join us in Seattle from September 23-25, 2019 for the 28th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT 2019).
The early registration deadline has been extended to September 3, 2019.
PACT is a long-running conference at the intersection of classical parallel architectures and compilers that brings together researchers from architecture, compilers, programming languages, and applications to present and discuss their latest research results.
This year’s program reflects many of the exciting advances being made in our field, particularly around topics related to heterogeneity: The continuing evolution of general-purpose accelerators and the rise (the return?) of domain-specific/special-purpose hardware. The program also features a machine learning as a driving application class for architectural innovation.
