Call for Papers
The ACM International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC) is the premier annual conference for presenting the latest research on the design, implementation, evaluation, and use of parallel and distributed systems for high-end computing. The 33rd HPDC will take place in Pisa, Italy, June 3-7, 2024.
In the context of high-performance parallel and distributed computing, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
January 18, 2024. Abstract Submission deadline
January 25, 2024. Paper Submission deadline
March 25, 2024. Notification of acceptance (Papers)
April 18, 2024. Camera-ready version (Papers)
Submissions to HPDC can be made in one of the following two categories: (1) regular papers, or (2) open-source tools and data papers.
The primary focus of regular papers should be to describe new research ideas supported by experimental implementation and evaluation
of the proposed research ideas. The primary focus of open-source tools and data should be to describe the design, development, and
evaluation of new open-source tools or novel data sources. Submissions in the regular papers category are also strongly encouraged
to open-source their software or hardware artifacts.
The authors are required to indicate the category of the paper as a part of the submitted manuscript's title. The last line of the title should indicate the paper type by using one of the two phrases (1) Paper Type: Regular, or (2) Paper Type: Open-source tools and data paper.
Submissions in both categories will be evaluated to the same standards in terms of novelty, scientific value, demonstrated usefulness, and potential impact on the field. The chosen category at the time of the submission can not be changed after the submission deadline.
Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 11 pages in PDF format, excluding references. Accepted papers will have the flexibility to use an additional page in the camera-ready to incorporate feedback from the reviewers. Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted via the conference submission website. Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration for another conference or a journal.
HPDC uses double-blind reviewing. Avoid identifying yourself or your institution explicitly or by implication (e.g., through the references or acknowledgments).
The first page should use the paper ID assigned during registration in place of the author names.
Use care in referring to your own related work. Do not omit references to your prior work, as this would make it difficult for reviewers to place your submission in its proper context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work. In some cases, it is not credible to refer to your related work in the third person. For example, your submission may extend a previous workshop paper, or it may relate to a submission currently under review at HPDC or another venue. In these cases, you must still explain the differences between your HPDC submission and the other work, but you should cite the other work anonymously and e-mail the deanonymized work to the PC chairs.
If your submission reports on experiences with a system at your institution, you should refer to the system anonymously but describe the properties of the system that are needed to evaluate the work (e.g., size of the user base, volume of requests, etc.). We recognize that, in some cases, these properties may allow a reviewer to identify your institution. Tool/data papers should also adhere to the double-blind submission policy. If the described tool/dataset framework is already widely used by the research community, consider describing the framework using a different name and not sharing the open-source code repository in the paper.
Papers containing information that is subject to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) will not be considered for review.
Please note that having an arXiv paper does not prohibit authors from submitting a paper to HPDC 2024. arXiv papers are not peer-reviewed and not considered as formal publications and hence do not count as prior work. Authors are not expected to compare against arXiv papers that have not formally appeared in previous conference or journal proceedings. If a submitted paper is already on arXiv, please continue to follow the double-blind submission guidelines. Authors are encouraged to use preventive measures to reduce the chances of accidental breach of anonymity (e.g., use a different title in the submission and do not upload/revise the arXiv version during the review period after the submission deadline).
Please note that the author list cannot be changed after acceptance.
At the time of submission, all authors must indicate their conflict of interest with the PC members. A conflict of interest may be institutional, collaborative, or personal. Please see detailed guidelines about how to accurately declare a conflict of interest on the submission website.
Please refer to the ACM Policy on Authorship for all other guidelines. The frequently asked questions page
(https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/frequently-asked-questions) provides policies on the use of generative
AI tools in preparing manuscripts.
By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.
Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

Submissions are now open at https://hpdc24.hotcrp.com/.
HPDC authors are encouraged to structure their introduction section of the paper in the following format (as subsections or headings).
If your research describes a new security-related attack, please consider adding information about the responsible disclosure to the relevant entity. Overall, as appropriate and relevant, the paper should follow the ethical principles and not alter the security/privacy/equality expectations of the associated human users.
Please consider making your research contribution description inclusive in nature. For example, consider using gender-neutral pronouns, consider using examples that are ethnicity/culture-rich, consider engaging users from diverse backgrounds if your research involves a survey, etc. Best efforts should be made to make the paper accessible to visually impaired or color-blind readers.
