The organizers of the 29th International ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC'20) call for proposals for Workshops to be held the day preceding the main conference (June 23).

The HPDC Workshops provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics and/or emerging research areas relevant to HPDC.

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. HPDC workshops proceedings will be published by ACM in the HPDC proceedings companion book.

We also welcome proposals for agency PI meetings, of technical tutorials, or of user-group meetings that would engage HPDC attendees.

Proposal Submission

To Submit: Please email your proposal to Antonino Tumeo ( with the title "HPDC Workshop Proposal"

Formatting Guidelines

Workshop proposals should be formatted as a single PDF document of 2-4 pages, describing the following:

  • The full name and acronym of the workshop
  • A description of the theme of the workshop and its key topics – proposers should be particularly careful in highlighting the focused nature of the theme of workshop
  • A description of the link to and relevance of the workshop for HPDC – proposers should highlight how their proposed event can complete or completement the main program of HPDC
  • Whether the workshop is intended for one full day or for one half day
  • A summary of the intended audience
  • A description of the intended structure of the workshop (peer-reviewed articles, invited articles, invited talks, panels, etc.)
  • Details of the review process leading to acceptance to present in the workshop
  • If the workshop will have a call for papers, a tentative version of such CFP (which can reference to the description and theme of the workshop)
  • Tentative list of program committee members, if peer-review is to be used
  • Proposed names for invited speakers and panelists (if invited talks and panels are to be held), and their impacts on the topics discussed at the workshop
  • If workshop is going to have published papers, type of papers to be accepted and their length
  • A plan for attracting submissions and attendees to the workshop
  • A brief biographical information on the workshop organizers
  • Data about previous editions of the workshop (if any) including attendance, number of papers submitted and accepted

Accepted workshops will need to be ready to set up a website and, if a paper submission process with peer review is going to be used, provide the submission link.
