28th International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High
Performance Computing (SBAC-PAD)

October 26-28, 2016
Los Angeles, USA


SBAC-PAD is an annual international conference series, the first of
which was held in 1987.  Each conference has traditionally presented
new developments in high performance applications, as well as the
latest trends in computer architecture and parallel and distributed
technologies.  The conference has strong international participation,
with submissions typically coming from over a dozen countries.  The
selection process is competitive, with acceptance rate below 30% in
recent years.  This year, the symposium will be held at Los Angeles,

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on a wide range of
high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture,
systems software, languages and compilers, algorithms, and

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

 * Application-specific systems
 * Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
 * Cloud, Grid, cluster, and peer-to-peer systems
 * Embedded and pervasive systems
 * GPUs, FPGAs and other 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

Submissions must be in English, 8 pages maximum, following the IEEE
conference formatting guidelines.  To be published in the SBAC-PAD
2016 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication at the
IEEE Xplore (pending), one of the authors must register at the full
rate.  Authors may not use a single registration for multiple papers.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions
of their papers for publication on the Journal of Parallel and
Distributed Computing.
