SBAC-PAD is an international symposium, started in 1987, which has 
continuously presented an overview of new developments, applications,
and trends in parallel and distributed computing technologies. SBAC-PAD 
is open for faculty members, researchers, specialists and
graduate students around the world.  In this edition, the symposium will 
be held at the École Normale Supérieure of Lyon, in France. Known
as the Gastronomy Capital, Lyon is the 2nd largest economic and

Call for Workshops

The organizers of the 30th International Symposium on Computer 
Architecture and High Performance Computing, that will be held in 
September 24-27, 2018 in Lyon, France, call for proposals for workshops 
to be co-located with SBAC-PAD 2018.

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and 
practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to 
the 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 of the above.

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.

The peer-reviewed accepted papers of organized workshops will be 
published in the SBAC-PAD proceedings. Each paper must have at least 
three reviews for being eligible for publication.
