Distributed shared memory (DSM) systems could overcome major obstacles of the widespread use of distributed-memory multiprocessors, while retaining the attractive features of low cost and good scalability common to distributed-memory machines. A DSM system allows a natural and portable programming model on distributed-memory machines, making it possible to construct a relatively inexpensive and scalable parallel system on which programmers can develop parallel application codes. Due to its potential advantages, DSM has received increasing attention. In this panel, challenges in building efficient DSM systems for a wide range of applications are addressed and discussed
