ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA) 2020 will take place July 14-17, 2020 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. To allow a broad audience to participate, SPAA will host a series of workshops and tutorials to learn more about research challenges and discuss research questions, to exchange exciting ideas, and to build up communities and possible new collaborations.

The inaugural workshops and tutorials plan to be held on July 14, 2020, which will consist of workshops for a half-day and tutorials for 1.5 or 3 hours. We welcome proposals for workshops and tutorials that are either within the scope of the SPAA community or research challenges in related areas/problems that have potential impacts for the SPAA community. Proposals will be evaluated on an ongoing basis so early submissions are encouraged and will be evaluated immediately.
