        ******       13th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON       ******

Bialystok, Poland,
September 8-11, 2019

The PPAM 2019 conference, thirteenth in a series, will cover topics in
parallel and distributed computing, including theory and applications,
as well as applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms,
and software tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization
of modern parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as
on large-scale applications, including artificial intelligence and
machine learning problems.

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences series.
The PPAM Proceedings are indexed in main databases such as Web of Science,
Scopus, and DBLP. Next year the PPAM conference will take place in
Bialystok, the largest city in northeastern Poland, academic and cultural
centre, located close to the world-famous Bialowieza Forest.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Parallel/distributed architectures, enabling technologies
- Cluster, cloud and fog computing
- Multi-core and many-core parallel computing, GPU computing
- Heterogeneous/hybrid computing and accelerators
- Parallel/distributed algorithms: numerical and non-numerical
- Scheduling, mapping, load balancing
- Performance analysis and prediction
- Performance issues on various types of parallel systems
- Auto-tuning and auto-parallelisation: methods, tools, and applications
- Power and energy aspects of computation
- Parallel/distributed programming
- Tools and environments for parallel/distributed computing
- Security and dependability in parallel/distributed environments
- HPC numerical linear algebra
- HPC methods of solving differential equations
- Evolutionary computing, meta-heuristics and neural networks
- Machine learning, artificial intelligence and HPC
- HPC interval analysis
- Applied Computing in mechanics, material processing, biology and
    medicine, physics, chemistry, business, environmental modeling, etc.
- Applications of parallel/distributed computing
- Methods and tools for parallel solution of large-scale problems,
    including artificial intelligence and machine learning applications
- Neuromorphic computing

Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit
full papers using the EasyChair system before May 6. Regular papers
are not to exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). Papers will be refereed and
accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the
conference topics. Abstracts of accepted papers will be available
during the conference in form of a brochure. Only papers presented at
PPAM 2019 will be included into the proceedings, which is planned be
published after the conference by Springer in the LNCS series.

Like the previous PPAM editions, the authors of the best papers
selected by the Program Committee will be invited to submit extended
versions of their work to special issues of journals with Impact Factor
such as Int. Journal of High Performance Computing Applications;
Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing; Concurrency and
Computation: Practice and Experience.
