This is a Call for Participation in the Partitioned Global Address Space
booth (#557) at SuperComputing 2017 in Denver, CO in November.
Please forward to colleagues who you think should receive this CFP.

This booth is an opportunity for the PGAS Community to showcase
ourselves and our work.  So, I invite you all to consider participation.

A site for planning and coordination is at

There are a number of ways in which you can participate:

*  Posters

This year we will have space available for several 24"W-by-36"H posters.
Each poster should showcase one PGAS language or library, or the
research and/or development work of one institution/project.

* Booth web site

In the booth we will display a URL and QR code for a PGAS booth site. 
You are invited to contribute links to content such as PGAS related
publications, software, tutorials, etc..  Links are due by Oct 30, to be
assured of inclusion.  However, there is no need to finalize the *content*
until the conference opens.

* Handouts and give-aways

You may also contribute your own CD or DVD to be handed out.
Additionally, hardcopy of flyers or papers may be distributed in the
booth if space allows.

* Booth duty

We would prefer (but do not require) that each poster has at least one
corresponding author to spend 2-hours of "booth duty", to ensure
somebody is available to answer questions.  However, even those not
contributing booth content are welcome to sign up for time in the booth
in order to interact with the people who come by interested in PGAS.

How to participate:

If you are interested in participating, please email Paul Hargrove at
PHHar...@lbl.gov to indicate your interest and provide one or more
email addresses to be used as the point(s) of contact.  Those emails
will be given write access to the pages referenced below.  If you are
proposing a poster, web content, or something to hand out, please 
provide the following information as appropriate:

** Posters

Your email to Paul should include a title and brief abstract for each
poster you would like to display.  If the poster is based on a recent 
publication, a link to the paper can serve instead of an abstract.  The
abstract will be used by the booth organizers to select posters.
If space allows we'd love to accept every reasonable submission, but
that is not always possible. 

We do not print your posters.
The expectation is that contributors will hand deliver their posters to
the Convention Center no later than 3pm on Monday, Nov 13th.
If that is not possible, please indicate that in your email to Paul so
we can begin to make alternative arrangements.

More detail on posters (including production guidelines) can be found at

Poster Timeline:
  Oct 6 (Fri): Poster proposals due, BUT EARLIER IS BETTER
