International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing 
Campinas, Brazil
October 17-20, 2017

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. More information about the conference can be found at http://www2.sbc.org.br/sbac/2017/index.html.

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 applications.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  Application-specific systems
  Architecture and Programming Support for Emerging Domains (Big Data, Deep Learning)
  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 2017 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.

Paper submission can be done through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sbacpad2017
