1st Call for Papers
SBAC-PAD is an international symposium, started in 1987, which has continuously presented an overview of new developments, applications, and trends in parallel and distributed computing technologies. SBACPAD is open for faculty members, researchers, specialists and graduate students around the world.
In this edition, the symposium will be held at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, in Campo Grande, Brazil. Campo Grande, a city, planned in the midst of a vast green area with wide streets and avenues, is located in a plateau region, close to the great centers of the country - only 1h30min flight
from São Paulo and Brasilia. The city is also an obligatory passage for the beginning of an eco-tourism adventure to those who propose to know the Pantanal and Bonito.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on a wide range of high-performance and distributed computing areas. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Application-specific systems
- Architecture and programming support for emerging domains (Big Data, Deep Learning, Machine learning, Cognitive Systems)
- Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
- Cloud, cluster, and edge/fog computing systems
- Embedded and pervasive systems
- GPUs, FPGAs and accelerator architectures
- Languages, compilers, and tools for parallel and distributed programming
- Modeling and simulation methodology
- Operating systems and virtualization
- Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and applications
- Power and energy-efficient systems
- Processor, cache, memory, storage, and network architecture
- Real-world applications and case studies
- Reconfigurable, resilient and fault-tolerant systems
- Edson Norberto Cáceres (UFMS, Brazil)
- Ricardo Ribeiro dos Santos - Vice General Chair (UFMS, Brazil)
- Eduard Ayguadé (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain)
- Renato Ferreira (UFMG, Brazil)
- Track 1 - Computer Architecture: Philippe Navaux (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil)
- Track 2 - Programming models and runtimes for parallel systems: Antonio Peña (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain)
