Call for Workshops


The 26th International ACM Symposium on
High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing
(HPDC'17)

Washington D.C., United States - June 26-30, 2017

Sponsored by ACM SIGARCH


Overview

The organizers of the 26th International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC'17) call for proposals for workshops to be held with HPDC'17. The workshops will be held June 26th and 27th in Washington, D.C. USA.

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to the HPDC community. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. Workshops could be scheduled for half a day or a full day, depending on interest, space constraints, and organizer preference. Organizers should design workshops for approximately 20-40 participants, to balance impact and effective discussion.

Proposal Submission

Workshop proposals must be submitted using the submission site here.

To evaluate workshops, the commitee requires

  • The name and acronym of the workshop
  • A description (0.5-1 page) of the theme of the workshop
  • A description (one paragraph) of the relation between the theme of the workshop and HPDC
  • A list of topics of interest
  • The names and affiliations of the workshop organizers (including a short bio), and if applicable, of a significant portion of the program committee or the selection crteria to be used (if the submissions are not peer-reviewed)
  • A description of the expected structure of the workshop (papers, invited talks, panel discussions, etc.)
  • Data about previous offerings of the workshop (if any), including the attendance, the numbers of papers or presentations submitted and accepted, and the links to the corresponding websites
  • Any opportunities for additional publications (e.g. journal special issues, compendia, etc.)
  • A description of the expected number of submissions, accepted papers, and attendees that you anticipate for a successful workshop as well as a publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees.

Due to publication deadlines, workshops must operate within roughly the following timeline: papers due beginning of March (2-3 weeks after the HPDC deadline), and selected and sent to the publisher by beginning of April.
