*Euro-EDUPAR Workshop 2018 - Call for Papers*

August 27, 2018
Turin, Italy

held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2018

*Scope and objectives*
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 2010 the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel 
Processing launched the Curriculum Initiative on Parallel and 
Distributed Computing, with Core Topics for Undergraduates, and in 2011 
started the workshop EduPar, dedicated to Parallel and Distributed 
Computing Education. Given the differences in education in different 
parts of the world, the Euro-EDUPAR workshop aims to analyze PDC 
Education in a European context, taking into account the structure and 
organization of European education.

In this context, the 4th 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unpublished manuscripts from individuals or teams from academia, 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 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 workshop especially seeks papers 
that report on experiences incorporating PDC topics into undergraduate 
core courses taken by the majority of students on a degree course. 
Methods, pedagogical approaches, tools, and techniques that have 
potential for adoption across the European teaching community are of 
particular interest.

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 
4. Curriculum design, models for incorporating PDC topics in core CS/CE 
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
Submission guidelines

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 
published by Springer where only full papers between 10 and 12 pages 
long will be published. 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 methodology.The workshop proceedings will be 
published in a LNCS Euro-Par 2018 Workshops volume after the conference. 
Only full papers between 10 and 12 pages long which were presented at 
the workshop will be included.
**Important dates*
May 4, 2018: Paper submission deadline
June 15, 2018: Author notification
July 6, 2018: Paper due, for informal workshop proceedings
August 27, 2018: Workshop (full day)
