SBAC-PAD Call For Papers


The IEEE 34th International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High
Performance Computing (SBAC-PAD 2022) will take place from* November 2nd to
5th, 2022, in Bordeaux, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.*

SBAC-PAD is an annual international conference series, which presents
research and developments, applications, and trends in Computer
Architecture, High Performance Computing (HPC) and Parallel and Distributed
Computing technologies. SBAC-PAD is open to faculty, researchers,
practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students around the world. Its
scientific program is composed from high quality submitted papers, selected
by a thorough peer review process.

Paper submission

Papers submitted to SBAC-PAD 2022 must present original research results
and must not have been published or concurrently  submitted anywhere else.

Paper submission can be done through:

Paper submissions must be in English, 10 pages maximum (including the
references),  following the IEEE conference formatting guidelines.
<https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html> Papers that do
not meet these requirements might be rejected without a review. To be
published in the conference proceedings and to be eligible for publication
at the IEEE Xplore, one of the authors must register at the full rate and
present his/her work at the conference.

The SBAC-PAD 2022 submissions will undergo a double-blind review process,
where reviewers do not know the identity of the authors, and vice-versa.
Therefore, authors should “blind” their submission adopting the following
guidelines, otherwise papers will be rejected without reviewing:


   The authors cannot include their names, affiliations, funding sources,
   or acknowledgments in any part of the paper.

   Self-references that are relevant to the work are allowed, but they
   should not appear in the text in the first person. Instead they should be
   referenced in the third person, like “Smith et al. found that… [4].”.

    For the authors’ unpublished work, they need to use anonymous citations.

The program committee will select the top papers as finalists, and one
paper will be selected during the conference as the winner and will be
recognized as such at the conference closing ceremony. Selected papers will
also be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the
Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.

Special Issue of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing

This special issue pursues works on “Computer Architecture and High
Performance Computing” from an extended version of selected papers
presented at SBAC PAD 2022, following the tradition of past years SBAC-PAD
special issue at JPDC. The submissions should contain at least 50% of new
content. Yet, papers not presented at the conference but that contribute to
the Computer Architecture and High-performance Computing area are also
welcome, thus this is open to the HPC community worldwide.

Tentative schedule of call, submissions, reviewing, and publication:

Date CFP published online: January 8, 2023.

Date of expected first submission: April 20, 2023.

Date first review round completed: July 20, 2023.

Date revised manuscripts due: October 20, 2023.

Date completion of the review and revision process (final notification):
November 20, 2023.
