Euro-Par 2013
Aachen, Germany
August 26-30, 2013

Submission Deadline

Workshop proposal due: March 10, 2013, 23:59 AOE (February 28, 2013)

Scope of the Conference

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed computing. It covers a wide spectrum of topics from algorithms and theory to software technology and hardware-related issues, with application areas ranging from scientific to mobile and cloud computing. The objective of Euro-Par is to provide a forum for the introduction, presentation and discussion of the latest scientific and technical advances, extending the frontier of both the state of the art and the state of the practice. A full list of topics covered by regular Euro-Par 2013 sessions can be found here.

To provide further meeting points for researchers to discuss and exchange ideas on topics related to parallel and distributed computing, Euro-Par 2013 will continue the tradition of co-locating workshops with the main conference and invites proposals for the workshop program. The workshops will be held on August 26-27, 2013, two days before the main conference. Workshop proceedings will be published in a separate LNCS Euro-Par 2013 volume after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as an editor of the workshop volume. Registered workshop participants will receive an electronic copy of the volume by mail. All authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

The proposals should include the following information:

  • Workshop title
  • Information on the organizers, including a short biography of each organizer
  • The tentative program committee
  • Description of the workshop including its objectives, its contents and its format, indicating a preference for the length of the workshop (half a day or a full day)
  • Potential attendees

The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and the degree to which it matches the scope of the conference. In the case of workshop proposals with common or very similar objectives and contents, a proposal on how to merge the overlapping workshops will be made.
