International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance
Campo Grande, Brazil
October 15-18, 2019

SBAC-PAD is an annual international conference series, the first of
which was held in 1987. Each conference has traditionally presented
new developments in high performance applications, as well as the
latest trends in computer architecture and parallel and distributed
technologies. The conference has strong international participation,
with submissions typically coming from over a dozen countries. The
selection process is competitive, with acceptance rate below 30% in
recent years. More information about the conference can be found at

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, and

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Application-specific systems
Architecture and Programming Support for Emerging Domains (Big Data,
Deep Learning)
Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
Cloud, Grid, cluster, and peer-to-peer systems
Embedded and pervasive systems
GPUs, FPGAs and other 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 2019
Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication at the IEEE
Xplore, 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 the Journal of Parallel and Distributed

Paper submission will be done through EasyChair:
