## 24th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
Turin, Italy, August 27-31, 2018
Twitter: @europar2018
__Euro-Par__ is the prime European conference covering all aspects of
__parallel__ and __distributed__ processing, ranging from theory to
practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems
and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to
full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and
interface design and implementation, to tools, support
infrastructures, and application performance aspects. Euro-Par’s
unique organization into topics provides an excellent forum for
focused technical discussion, as well as interaction with a large,
broad and diverse audience.
## Scope
We invite submissions of high-quality, novel and original research
results in areas of parallel and distributed computing covered by the
following topics:
1. Support Tools and Environments
2. Performance and Power Modeling, Prediction and Evaluation
3. Scheduling and Load Balancing
4. High Performance Architectures and Compilers
5. Parallel and Distributed Data Management and Analytics
6. Cluster and Cloud Computing
7. Distributed Systems and Algorithms
8. Parallel and Distributed Programming, Interfaces, and Languages
9. Multicore and Manycore Methods and Tools
10. Theory and Algorithms for Parallel Computation and Networking
11. Parallel Numerical Methods and Applications
12. Accelerator Computing for Advanced Applications
Topic descriptions and chairs are available on the Euro-Par 2018 Web
site <>. The conference will feature
contributed and invited talks. Co-located _tutorials_ and _workshops_
are also planned as usual for Euro-Par.
## Important Dates
* Paper abstracts: __February 9, 2018, 23:59 AOE__
* Full paper submission: __February 16, 2018, 23:59 AOE__
* Author notification: __April 27, 2018__
* Camera ready full papers: __June 1, 2018__
* Workshop proposals: __February 16, 2018__
## Submission Guidelines
Submissions must be in PDF format and should not exceed __12__ pages
in the Springer LNCS style. Paper submission will be handled
electronically with EasyChair. Complete LaTeX sources must be provided
for accepted papers.
All submitted research papers will be peer-reviewed. Only
contributions that are not submitted elsewhere or currently under
review will be considered. Accepted papers will be included in the
conference proceedings, published by Springer in the ARCoSS/LNCS
series. Authors of accepted papers will have to sign a Springer
copyright form.
The 24th edition of Euro-Par will introduce two novelties for authors:
1. __Artifact Evaluation__: authors of accepted papers will have the
   option to submit materials for Artifact Evaluation. Artifacts will
   be reviewed by a separate committee.  Papers that go through the
   Artifact Evaluation process successfully will receive a seal of
2. __Chess-Timer Talks__: authors of accepted papers will have the
   option to propose an interactive, chess-timer talk at the
   conference, allowing 20 minutes of solo speaking time and 15
   minutes of discussion time. During the presentation, the audience
   will be encouraged to interact with the speaker asking questions
   and making comments. A committee will select a limited number of
   presentations among those proposed with this modality.
## Location
Euro-Par 2018 will be held in Turin, Italy, August 27th-31st, 2018, at
the Campus Luigi Einaudi of the University of Turin.  It is organized
by the Computer Science Department of the University of Turin.
