32nd IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium

Call release: August 23rd, 2017

  CALL FOR PAPERS
-------------------------------------

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unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed 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

* Parallel and distributed computing theory and algorithms (Algorithms): 
Design and analysis of novel numerical and combinatorial parallel 
algorithms; protocols for resource management; communication and 
synchronization on parallel and distributed systems; parallel algorithms 
handling power, mobility, and resilience.

* 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 in the use of novel commercial or research architectures, 
accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, and other non-traditional 
systems; algorithms for cloud computing; domain-specific parallel and 
distributed algorithms; performance modeling and analysis of parallel 
and distributed algorithms.

* 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; 
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 scalable data analytics, machine learning, and deep 
learning; OS and runtime system specialized 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; memory technologies and hierarchies; exascale system 
designs; data center architectures; novel big data architectures; 
special-purpose architectures and accelerators; network and interconnect 
architectures; parallel I/O and storage systems; power-efficient and 
green computing systems; resilience and dependable architectures; 
performance modeling and evaluation.

* Multidisciplinary: Papers that cross the boundaries of the previous 
tracks are encouraged and can be submitted to the multidisciplinary 
track. During submission of multidisciplinary papers, authors should 
indicate their subject areas that can come from any area. 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.

BEST PAPER AWARDS
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.

JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE
A few papers from each area will be selected by the conference chair and 
co-chairs and invited for submission to a special issue of JPDC 
dedicated to IPDPS. The final paper should have at least 30% extra 
material and will be reviewed as any JPDC submission, but fast-tracked 
to appear a few months after the conference.

WHAT/WHERE TO SUBMIT
Abstracts must be submitted by October 17th; submitted abstracts may not 
exceed 500 words. Manuscripts must be submitted by October 22nd; 
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.

REVIEW OF MANUSCRIPTS:
All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. 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.

Questions may be sent to [log in to unmask] Abstracts are due October 17, 
2017, and full manuscripts must be received by October 22, 2017. This is 
a final, hard deadline. To ensure fairness, no extensions will be given.

Preliminary decisions will be sent by December 8, 2017, 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 8, 2018.  Notification of final 
decisions will be mailed by January 22, 2018, and camera-ready papers 
will be due February 15, 2018.

IMPORTANT DATES

• Abstracts due:  October 17, 2017
• Submissions due (hard deadline): October 22, 2017
• Author notification  (first round):  December 8, 2017
• Revisions due: January 8, 2018
• Author notification (final): January 22, 2018
• Camera-ready due: February 15, 2018


-------------------------------------
  CALL FOR WORKSHOPS   (close deadline!)
-------------------------------------

Held on the first and last day of the conference, IPDPS workshops 
provide an extended forum that allows the IPDPS community an opportunity 
to fully explore special topics and to present work that is more 
preliminary and cutting-edge or that has more practical content than the 
more mature research presented in the main symposium. Each workshop has 
its own requirements and schedule for submissions. Workshop papers’ 
submission dates typically fall after the notification date for the main 
symposium papers. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the 
conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital 
Library after the conference.

The proposals should contain the following information:

* Description: Provide brief description of the workshop, its scope and 
topics; the list of organizers with the confirmed chair(s); the program 
committee members (indicate whether the members have been confirmed); 
and the important dates.

* Organizers: Provide a short vita of the organizers by listing the 
current affiliation, position, and previous experience in organizing 
other events including workshops/conferences/panels at IPDPS or other 
venues.

* History: If re-running (earlier editions were held somewhere other 
than IPDPS), provide general information by listing the name of the 
workshop, the hosting conference, year, number of papers submitted, 
number of papers accepted, number of attendees; if there were 
posters/panels, their numbers and topics (for panels), and URL’s of the 
existing web pages.

Targeted papers and audience: Provide information on targeted papers and 
audience: (i) Where are the papers from (government labs, universities, 
industry); (ii) What is the expected profile of the participants 
(speakers + audience)? (iii) How will the workshop be advertised?

Format of the workshop: Provide a short overview of the format by 
indicating if the workshop (i) will have peer reviewed papers in the 
proceedings? (ii) will be half day or full day long? (iii) will have a 
keynote talk? If yes, provide a tentative list of speakers; (iv) will 
have a panel? If yes, provide the topic and the potential panelists? (v) 
will have external (e.g., NSF) support for student participants.

What/where to submit: The proposals can be submitted using the link 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipdpsw18.

Submitted proposals may not exceed three (3) single-spaced double-column 
pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference 
style), including figures, tables, and references.


***IPDPS Workshops from the preceding year(s) should apply for renewal. 
For more information, please contact the workshops chair at

proposals and renewal requests are expected to be mailed on 18 September 
2017.
