Call For Papers

ParCo2019 will cover the state of the art in the development, applications, and future trends in parallel computing for both High Performance (HPC) and Data Intensive Computing (DIC). Its scope encompasses all platforms, from Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics to HPC systems, Clouds, Quantum, and Neuro-Computing.

The conference addresses all aspects of parallel computing, including applications, hardware and software technologies, and languages and development environments.


Section 1: Architectures

New concepts for parallel computing architectures for all levels of parallelism, including:

    Multicore and manycore systems
    Heterogeneous systems
    Accelerators, including GPUs and FPGAs
    High-performance systems, including peta- and exascale
    Architectures for handling large data sets and data intensive computing, including high speed storage systems
    Interconnection networks
    Clouds for HPC
    Performance evaluation
    Energy saving designs
    IoT and mobile devices
    Brain-inspired systems, including neurocomputing
    Quantum computers
    Specialised architectures for high-performance machine learning and deep learning.

Section 2: Software

Software for parallel computing platforms, including

    Operating systems and middleware for all types of parallel architectures
    Software engineering methodologies, and methods and tools for developing and maintaining parallel software
    Parallel programming languages, compilers, libraries, and environments
    Testing and debugging techniques and tools
    Best practices of parallel computing on multicore, manycore, and stream processors
    Design patterns for parallel computing.

Section 3: Algorithms

Design, analysis, and implementation of parallel algorithms for all application areas, emphasising the parallel computing aspects and focusing on issues such as:

    Scalability and speedup
    Efficient utilization of the memory hierarchy
    Communication and synchronization
    Data management
    Energy awareness.

Section 4: Applications

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

    Astronomy and space
    Health science and care
    Geo- and environmental sciences
    Computational chemistry
    Material science
    Exploration and optimal use of resources
    Data intensive (big data) analytics and applications
    Economic and financial modelling
    Learning systems (deep learning) and AI
    Automonous transport systems, including self driving vehicles
    Virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR).



The conference language is English. Extended abstracts of ca. two pages should be submitted in electronic form by 28 February 2019. 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, 3 or 4) from the list given above.
Please check the conference website for details on how to submit proposals. This information will be published as soon as the conference management tool has been set up.


Proposals for organising a symposium are solicited. 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 (preferably in the range from 3 to 10).

The organisers of symposia publish their respective calls for contributions, determine submission dates and are responsible for the refereeing and acceptance of papers. Proposals for organising a symposium should be submitted to the conference office by 31 March 2019, but later proposals will be considered if space allows. For any questions about the organisation of a symposium please contact the conference office.
