We write to notify you that we have extended the PELGA'15 deadline till
June 2nd, 2015, AoE !!!

We are looking forward to you submissions on high performance graph
processing research to PELGA 2015, a new workshop collocated with
EuroPar'15 in Vienna, Austria.

Note that we are inviting both mature papers and work-in-progress or
position papers!

       PELGA: Performance Engineering for Large Scale Graph Analytics

                    held in conjunction with EuroPar'15
                      August 25, 2015 - Vienna, Austria

*** Important Dates
Submission Deadline: June 2nd, 2015, AoE

Author Notification: June 30, 2015
Workshop paper (for informal workshop proceedings): July 15, 2015
Workshop camera-ready papers due: September 25, 2015

Graph analytics is becoming a significant consumer of computing
resources as the graphs grow in size (social networking, advanced
marketing, life sciences, health and bioinformatics services, academic
networks) and the analysis tasks grow increasingly complex. To enable
existing algorithms to fit modern architectures and scale with these new
requirements, there is a growing need for performance engineering.
PELGA’15 is a venue for specialists from both industry and academiato
discuss the state of the art of graph processing systems, with a special
focus on performance. Contributions focusing on graph-centric
performance engineering tools and methods, workload characterization,
and performance modeling are especially welcome. We also invite
contributions covering surveys, performance studies, comparative
analyses, new algorithms and new graph processing systems. This broad
mix of ideas will stir discussion and lead to new collaborations and new

We invite mature papers (regular, 12-pages long, LNCS format),
work-in-progress and experience papers (short, 6-pages long, LNCS
format), and position papers (also short, 6-pages long, LNCS format).
All papers will be peer-reviewed and published in the workshop informal
proceedings (available during the conference). The camera-ready versions
of the papers will be published by Springer in a common EuroPar Workshop
Proceedings volume, *after the conference*.

We are happy to introduce our *Program Committee*, who will work hard to
review your submissions and build a balanced program for PELGA’15:
