Call for Workshops

The 28th International ACM Symposium on
High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing

Phoenix, Arizona, United States on June 24-28, 2019

Sponsored by ACM SIGARCH


The organizers of the 28th International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC'19) call for proposals for Workshops to be held on June 22-23, preceding the main conference. HPDC'19 will be colocated with ACM FCRC 2019.

The HPDC Workshops provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics and/or emerging research areas relevant to HPDC. We also welcome proposals for agency PI meetings, of technical tutorials, or of user-group meetings that would engage HPDC attendees.

Workshops typically include some combination of invited talks, peer-reviewed papers, panel discussions, and work-in-progress talks. Proposers should design workshops for approximately 20-40 participants, lasting either one full day or one half day, depending on interest and space constraints. Proposals for workshops on new topics are welcome, as are proposals to continue previously successful workshops.

Proposal Submission

To Submit: Please email your proposal to Alexandru Iosup ( with the title "HPDC Workshop Proposal"..
