***** CALL FOR PAPERS *****

3rd European Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing Education for 
Undergraduate Students (Euro-EDUPAR), in conjunction with Euro-Par 2017, 
Santiago de Compostela, Spain, August 28/29, 2017.


Submission deadline: May 12, 2017 (extended)
Submission web site: 


Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC) is nowadays omnipresent. It is in all 
the computational environments, from mobile devices, laptops and desktops to 
clusters, large-scale data centers and supercomputers, often comprising CPUs 
and/or coprocessors of different types (GPU, MIC, FPGA). It becomes now vital 
to train new generations of scientists and engineers in the use of these 
computational systems: parallelism-related topics must be incorporated in 
Computer Science (CS) and Computer Engineering (CE) programs.

In this context, the 3rd European Workshop on Parallel and Distributed 
Computing Education for Undergraduate Students (Euro-EDUPAR) invites 
unpublished manuscripts from individuals or teams from academia, industry, and 
other educational and/or research institutes on topics pertaining to the 
teaching of PDC topics in the Computer Science and Engineering curriculum as 
well as in Computational Science with PDC and/or High Performance Computing 
(HPC) concepts, with emphasis on European undergraduate teaching.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
1. Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC) teaching in the European space
2. Pedagogical issues in PDC, educational methods and learning mechanisms
3. Novel ways of teaching PDC topics, including informal learning environments
4. Curriculum design, models for incorporating PDC topics in core CS/CE curriculum
5. Experience with incorporating PDC topics into core CS/CE courses
6. Experience with incorporating PDC topics in the context of other applications learning
7. Pedagogical tools, programming environments, and languages for PDC
8. e-Learning, e-Laboratory, online courses related to PDC
9. PDC teaching experiences at non-university levels: secondary school, industry, etc


The submissions will follow the Euro-Par guidelines, in PDF format, and should 
not exceed 12 pages in the Springer LNCS style, which can be downloaded from 
the Springer Web site. Paper submission is handled electronically (EasyChair). 
The 12-page limit is comprehensive (text, figures, references). Complete LaTeX 
sources must be provided for accepted papers. Short papers and work-in-progress 
papers can be submitted and presented at the workshop, but they will not be 
eligible for the post-conference proceedings. Submissions will be reviewed by 
at least 3 members of the Program Committee and will be assessed according to 
impact at European level, the novelty of contributions, impact on broader 
undergraduate curriculum, relevance to the goals of the workshop, results and 

The workshop proceedings will be published in a LNCS Euro-Par 2017 Workshops 
volume after the conference. Only full papers between 10 and 12 pages presented 
at the workshop will be included.
