Scope and Topics

Submissions are welcomed on all forms of high-performance parallel and distributed computing, including but not limited to clusters, clouds, grids, utility computing, data-intensive computing, and massively multicore systems. Submissions that explore solutions to estimate and reduce the energy footprint of such systems are particularly encouraged. All papers will be evaluated for their originality, potential impact, correctness, quality of presentation, appropriate presentation of related work, and relevance to the conference, with a strong preference for rigorous results obtained in operational parallel and distributed systems.

The topics of interest of the conference include, but are not limited to, the following, in the context of high-performance parallel and distributed computing:

  • Systems, networks, and architectures for high-end computing
  • Massively multicore systems
  • Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage
  • Programming languages and environments
  • I/O, storage systems, and data management
  • Resource management, energy and cost minimizations
  • Performance modeling and analysis
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
  • Data-intensive computing
  • Applications of parallel and distributed computing

Paper Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 12 pages in PDF format, including figures and references. Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted via the conference web site. No changes to the margins, spacing, or font sizes as specified by the style file are allowed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM Digital Library. A limited number of papers will be accepted as posters.

Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical substance required for the program committee to evaluate their contributions. Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration for another conference or a journal. See the ACM Prior Publication Policy for more details.
