Parallel and Distributed Systems (4PAD 2019)


As part of The 17th International Conference on High Performance
Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2019)

http://hpcs2019.cisedu.info/ or http://conf.cisedu.info/rp/hpcs19

July 15 – 19, 2019 Dublin, Ireland


Paper Submissions: ----------------------------   01 March 2019
Acceptance Notification: ------------------------ 29 March 2019
Camera Ready Papers and Registration Due by: ---- 19 April 2019
Conference Dates:  ------------------------------ 15–19 July 2019



The aim of 4PAD is to foster interaction between the formal methods communities 
and systems
researchers working on topics in modern parallel, distributed, and network-based 
systems (e.g., autonomous computing systems, cloud computing systems, 
service-oriented systems
and parallel computing architectures).

4PAD Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support;
- Model-based approaches, including model-driven development;
- Service- and component-based approaches;
- Semantics, types and logics;
- Formal specification and verification;
- Performance analysis based on formal approaches;
- Formal aspects of programming paradigms and languages;
- Formal approaches to parallel architectures and weak memory models;
- Formal approaches to deployment, run-time analysis, adaptation/evolution, 
reconfiguration, and monitoring;
- Case studies developed/analyzed with formal approaches;
- Formal stochastic models and analysis;
- Formal methods for large-scale distributed systems;
- Statistical analysis techniques based on formal approaches.

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works
on above and other topics related to Formal Approaches to Parallel
and Distributed Systems. Submitted paper must not have been published
or simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings,
in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwise. For Regular papers,
please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column
formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of
no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission
should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax 
phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the
corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the 
Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters
(please refer to 
for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of
submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions 
to make
it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.


Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission site at




Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for
final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2019 Conference
web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard 
and soft
copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is 
projected to
be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing 


Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for 
publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will 
soon be
announced and will be made available on the conference website.

Furthermore, it is confirmed that after the 4PAD symposium, authors of selected 
papers will
be invited to submitted extended version of their papers for possible 
publication in a special
issue of the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please 
contact the symposium organizers
