Conference Location
Call For Papers
Parallel computing, for many years the enabling technology of high-end machines, is now the key for the efficient use of any kind of computer architecture, from embedded and personal up to exascale systems.

ParCo2015 continues the tradition of the international conferences on parallel computing started in Berlin, Germany, in 1983. This makes ParCo one of the longest running international conferences on parallel computing. Over the years, the conference established itself as the foremost platform for exchanging know-how on the newest parallel computing strategies, technologies, methods, and tools.

The high scientific standard of the conference presentations and the refereed proceedings have become the hall-mark of ParCo.

As with all previous conferences in this series ParCo2015 will, through its informal nature, give participants excellent opportunities to meet and interact with fellow researchers.

Aims and Scope

The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the state of the art of the developments, applications, and future trends in parallel computing for the whole range of platforms. The conference addresses all aspects of parallel computing, including applications, hardware and software technologies as well as languages and development environments.

Topic Areas

Section 1: Algorithms

Design, analysis, and implementation of parallel algorithms in science and engineering, focusing on issues such as

    Scalability and speedup
    Efficient utilization of the memory hierarchy
    Communication and synchronization
    Data Management and Exploration
    Energy Efficiency.

The parallel computing aspects should be emphasized.

Section 2: Software and Architectures

Software engineering for developing and maintaining parallel software, including

    Parallel programming languages, compilers, and environments
    Tools and techniques for generating reliable and efficient parallel code
    Testing and debugging techniques and tools
    Best practices of parallel computing on multicore, manycore, and stream processors

Software, architectures and operating systems for all types of parallel computers may be considered, including multicores, GPU accelerators, FPGA reconfigurable systems, high-end machines and cloud computing.

Section 3: Applications

The application of parallel computing to solve all types of business, industrial, scientific, and engineering problems using high-performance computing technologies, in particular:

    Applications of high-end computers, including exascale
    Applications of multicore / manycore processors
    Applications for heterogeneous systems, including FPGAs, GPUs, etc.
    Cloud and Grid computing applications
    Data intensive (Big Data) analytics and applications.


The scientific program consists of invited and contributed papers as well as mini-symposia covering special topics.

Papers are presented in parallel sessions with 20 minutes available per presentation, with an additional five minutes for discussion.

A special session for young researchers as well as an industrial session and an exhibition are planned.



Contributed papers in English are called for. Extended abstracts of at least two pages should be submitted in electronic form by 28 February 2015. Proposals are to be submitted in .pdf-format.

Abstracts should clearly describe the contents of the proposed paper. The relevance and originality of the contribution must be described and the most important references included. At most five relevant keywords must be supplied. Also indicate the preferred topic area (section 1, 2 or 3) from the list given above.

Submission of paper proposals:

Paper proposals can be submitted using ConfTool at Authors are required to register with the system before they can enter their proposals.

Full (draft) papers of accepted proposals are due by 31 July 2015.


Proposals for organising a mini-symposium are called for. Such proposals should give:
    The proposed title of the symposium
    The name and affiliation(s) of the organiser(s)
    A short outline of the contents
    The planned number of papers.

Proposals for organising a mini-symposium can be submitted by 31 March 2015 to the conference office. For any questions about the organisation of a mini-symposium please contact the conference office.
