• CFP: SBAC-PAD 2020 (Submission due: May 15th, 2020) IEEE International,

    From Carlos Ferreira@21:1/5 to All on Mon May 4 02:01:17 2020
    SBAC-PAD 2020

    32nd IEEE International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing
    September 8-11, 2020
    Porto, Portugal

    http://www2.sbc.org.br/sbac/ (Historical acceptance rate).

    ** NEW ** SBAC-PAD2020 will be held online (synchronous and/or asynchronous) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We are monitoring the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and
    following the recommendations/guidelines from the World Health
    Organization (WHO) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and
    Control (ECDC).

    The safety of all conference participants is our main priority. In
    this perspective, regardless of the outbreak outcomes in September, we
    will make SBAC-PAD2020 an online (synchronous and/or asynchronous)
    event and we will maintain the regular publication activities, i.e.,
    accepted papers will be eligible for publication at the IEEE Xplore
    and the authors of the selected papers will be invited to submit an
    extended version of their work for publication on the Journal of
    Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC).

    The assessment of the outbreak's impact will be done until July,
    31st. By that time, we will make an announcement, on the
    SBAC-PAD2020's webpage, about its schedulement.

    Stay safe!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aims and Scope ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SBAC-PAD is an international symposium, started in 1987, which has
    continuously presented an overview of new developments, applications,
    and trends in parallel and distributed computing
    technologies. SBAC-PAD is open for faculty members, researchers,
    specialists and graduate students around the world.

    In this edition, the symposium will be held at the University of
    Porto, Porto, Portugal. The city of Porto is famous for its Port wine
    and beautiful scenery, architecture and cultural events. More
    information about the conference can be found at

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Paper Submission ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on a wide range of high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture,
    systems software, languages and compilers, algorithms and

    Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
    - Application-specific systems
    - Architecture and Programming Support for Emerging Domains
    (Big Data, Deep Learning)
    - Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
    - Cloud, Grid, cluster, and peer-to-peer systems
    - Embedded and pervasive systems
    - GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerator architectures
    - Languages, compilers, and tools for parallel and distributed
    - Modeling and simulation methodology
    - Operating systems and virtualization
    - Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and applications
    - Power and energy-efficient systems
    - Processor, cache, memory, storage, and network architecture
    - Real-world applications and case studies
    - Reconfigurable, resilient and fault-tolerant systems

    Submissions must be in English, 8 pages maximum, following the IEEE
    conference formatting guidelines. To be published in the conference
    proceedings and to be eligible for publication at the IEEE Xplore, at
    least one of the authors must register at the full rate and present
    her/his work.

    Authors may not use a single registration for multiple papers. Authors
    of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of
    their papers for publication on the Journal of Parallel and
    Distributed Computing.

    Paper submission will be done through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sbacpad2020
