Call for Workshop proposals for ICPP 2020 conference

49th International Conference on Parallel Processing

Parallel and distributed computing is a central topic in science, 
engineering and society. ICPP, the International Conference on Parallel 
Processing, provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, 
industry and government to exchange ideas and present results of 
on-going research in most state-of-the-art in all aspects of parallel 
and distributed computing.

The Workshops Committee of ICPP 2020 welcomes proposals for half or full 
day workshops affiliated with the conference, on topics of interest to 
ICPP 2020 attendees. The purpose of these workshops is to create new 
opportunities for presenting novel ideas in particular topics of 
interest, creating an specialized forum that may open new opportunities 
of collaboration and discussion.

The 49th ICPP will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on August 17-20, 2020. 
Workshops will be held on Monday August 17th.
