International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing
Lyon, France
September 24-27, 2018

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 
industrial region in France, and has become one of the favorite destinations for 
tourism in Europe. Lyon is also considered the most liveable city in France 
according to the Economist Intelligence Unit.

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, performance analysis, 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, Machine learning, Cognitive Systems)
- Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
- Cloud, cluster, and edge/fog computing systems
- Embedded and pervasive systems
- GPUs, FPGAs and 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 2018 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 a selected journal.
