           High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing

                Kyoto, Japan - May 31 through June 4, 2016

The organizers of the 25th International ACM Symposium on
High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC'16) call for
proposals for workshops to be held with HPDC'16. The workshops will be
held in May/June 2016 in Kyoto, Japan.

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and
practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to
the HPDC community. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit,
including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in
progress, fully peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. Workshops
could be scheduled for half a day or a full day, depending on interest,
space constraints, and organizer preference. Organizers should design
workshops for approximately 20-40 participants, to balance impact and
effective discussion.

Proposal Submission:
Workshop proposals must be submitted in two stages:
Stage 1: Online Form at
Stage 2: A proposal in PDF format sent via email to the HPDC'16

- A description (one paragraph) of the relation between the theme of the
   workshop and of HPDC
