30th ACM Symposium on
Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA 2018)
July 16 - 18, 2018
Vienna, Austria


Important Dates:

Submission deadlines:
- Abstract registration: Feb 6, 11:59pm EST
- Regular papers: February 13, 11:59pm EST
- Brief announcements: February 13, 11:59pm EST

These are firm deadlines. No extensions will be granted.

- Rebuttal period: April 2-4, 11:59pm EST

Submissions are sought in all areas of parallel algorithms and 
architectures, broadly construed, including both theoretical and 
experimental perspectives. Topics of interest include, but are not 
limited to:

- Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
- Parallel and Distributed Architectures
- Parallel and Distributed Data Structures
- Multiprocessor and Multicore Architectures
- Parallel Complexity Theory
- Transactional Memory Hardware and Software
- Scheduling in Parallel Systems
- Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI
- Compilers and Tools for Concurrent Programming
- Specification and Verification of Concurrent Systems
- Mobile, Ad-Hoc, Wireless and Sensor Networks
- Algorithms for GPUs and Heterogeneous Hardware
- Fault Tolerance and Reliability
- High-Performance Computing and Architectures
- Self-Stabilization and Self-Organization
- Green and Power-Efficient Algorithms and Architectures
- Algorithms for Social Networks
- Security and Privacy in Parallel/Distributed Systems
- Game Theory and Collaborative Learning
- Biological Distributed Algorithms
- Network Algorithms
- Algorithms for Routing and Information Dissemination
- Resource Management and Awareness
- I/O Algorithms and Architectures
- Parallel and Distributed Issues in Big Data
- Peer-to-Peer Systems

Regular papers:

Regular papers should report on original research, submitted exclusively 
to this conference. Submissions may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced 
double-column pages, in addition to references and an optional appendix. 
Papers will be judged based on quality, not their length—shorter 
papers are welcome. All necessary details to substantiate the main 
claims of the paper should be included either in the body of the paper 
or in a clearly marked appendix.

Brief announcements:

SPAA also solicits brief announcements that raise issues of interest to 
the SPAA community. Brief announcements may not exceed two (2) 
single-spaced double-column pages, in addition to references and an 
optional appendix. Examples of good brief announcements include: (i) 
papers previously published elsewhere of interest to SPAA, (ii) work in 
progress, (iii) announcement of tools/libraries, (iv) challenge problems 
posted to the community, (v) corrections to earlier results. Brief 
announcements may also include smaller results of interest.

Authors may request that a regular paper be considered as a brief 
announcement. As far as possible, the program committee will remain 
blind to this request until status as a regular paper has been resolved. 
Such a request will not affect the chances the manuscript be accepted as 
a regular paper.

Submission details:

Manuscripts submitted for review must use a single-spaced double-column 
format for 8.5x11-inch paper, use at least a 9-point font size, and have 
reasonable margins and spacing throughout. Submissions may, but are not 
required to, adopt the final ACM sigconf format from 
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Regular papers 
may not exceed ten (10) pages and brief announcements may not exceed two 
(2) pages. References and the appendix do not count toward the limit, 
but everything else does. Visit this link for submission details.


Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award.
