Call For Papers

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including translational research such as the development and operation of experimental or commercial systems. Work focusing on emerging technologies and interdisciplinary work covering multiple IPDPS focus areas is especially welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following topic areas:

Parallel and distributed computing theory and algorithms (Algorithms): Design and analysis of novel numerical and combinatorial parallel algorithms; reputation and incentive compatible design for distributed protocols and for distributed resource management; communication and synchronization on parallel and distributed systems; parallel algorithms handling power, mobility, and resilience; algorithms for cloud computing; algorithms for edge and fog computing; machine learning algorithms; domain-specific parallel and distributed algorithms; randomization in distributed algorithms and block-chain protocols.

Experiments and practice in parallel and distributed computing (Experiments): Design and experimental evaluation of applications of parallel and distributed computing in simulation and analysis; experiments on the use of novel commercial or research architectures, accelerators, neuromorphic and quantum architectures, and other non-traditional systems; performance modeling and analysis of parallel and distributed systems; innovations made in support of large-scale infrastructures and facilities; pragmatic strategies and experiences for allocating, managing, and accounting system- or facility-wide resources.

Programming models, compilers and runtimes for parallel applications and systems (Programming Models): Parallel programming paradigms, models and languages; compilers, runtime systems, programming environments and tools for the support of parallel programming; parallel software development and productivity.

System software and middleware for parallel and distributed systems (System Software): System software support for scientific workflows (including in-situ workflows); storage and I/O systems; system software for resource management, job scheduling, and energy-efficiency; frameworks targeting cloud and distributed systems; system software support for accelerators and heterogeneous HPC computing systems; interactions between the OS, runtime, compiler, middleware, and tools; system software support for fault tolerance and resilience; containers and virtual machines; system software supporting data management, scalable data analytics, machine learning, and deep learning; specialized operating systems and runtime systems for high performance computing and exascale systems; system software for future novel computing platforms including quantum, neuromorphic, and bio-inspired computing.

Architecture: Architectures for instruction-level and thread-level parallelism; manycore, multicores, accelerators, domain-specific and special-purpose architectures, reconfigurable architectures;  memory technologies and hierarchies; volatile and non-volatile emerging memory technologies, solid-state devices; exascale system designs; data center architectures; novel big data architectures; network and interconnect architectures; emerging technologies for interconnects; parallel I/O and storage systems; power-efficient and green computing systems; resilience, security, and dependable architectures; performance modeling and evaluation; emerging trends for computing, machine learning, approximate computing, quantum computing, neuromorphic computing and analog computing.

Multidisciplinary: Papers that cross the boundaries of the tracks listed above and/or address the application of parallel and distributed computing concepts and solutions to other areas of science and engineering are encouraged and can be submitted to the multidisciplinary track. Papers focused on translational research are particularly encouraged. Contributions should either target two or more core areas of parallel and distributed computing where the whole is larger than sum of its components, or advance the use of parallel and distributed computing in other areas of science and engineering.  During the submission of multidisciplinary papers, authors should indicate the areas of focus of their paper.


The program committee will nominate a few papers for recognition. Upon presentation at a special session, the best papers will be selected by a committee.


Abstracts must be submitted by October 7, 2019; submitted abstracts may not exceed 500 words. Manuscripts must be submitted by October 14, 2019; submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. The submitted manuscripts should include author names and affiliations.

The IEEE conference style templates for MS Word and LaTeX provided by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing are available for download. See the latest versions here.

The submission portal will be available by September. Return to this site to register your paper, submit your abstract, and upload your submissions.


All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, potential impact, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers should NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for another conference, workshop or journal. Authors will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the reviews of their submission before the Program Committee convenes for a final decision.

Questions may be sent to Abstracts are due October 7, 2019, and full manuscripts must be received by October 14, 2019. This is a final, hard deadline. To ensure fairness, no extensions will be given.

Preliminary decisions will be sent by December 9, 2019, with a decision of either accept, revise, or reject. Authors of “revised” papers will have the opportunity to revise the content according to reviewers’ comments and will submit their final paper (together with a cover letter explaining the changes) by January 6, 2020.  Notification of final decisions will be mailed by January 20, 2020 and camera-ready papers will be due February 15, 2020.
