Call for Papers and Symposia
AIMS AND SCOPE
ParCo2019 will cover the state of the art in the development, applications, and future trends in parallel
computing for both High Performance (HPC) and Data Intensive Computing (DIC). Its scope encompasses all platforms, from Internet of
Things (IoT) and Robotics to HPC systems, Clouds, Quantum, and Neuro-Computing.
The conference addresses all aspects of parallel computing, including applications, hardware and software technologies, and languages and development environments.
The full Call for Papers with deadline dates can be downloaded here.

The conference language is English. Extended abstracts of ca. two pages should be submitted in electronic form by
28 February 2019. Proposals are to be submitted in .pdf format.
Abstracts should clearly describe the contents of the proposed paper. The relevance and originality of the
contribution must be described and the most important references included. At most five relevant keywords must be
supplied. Also indicate the preferred topic area (section 1, 2, 3 or 4) from the list given above.
Please check the conference website http://www.parco.org for details on how to submit proposals. This information will be published as soon as the conference management tool has been set up.
Proposals for organising a symposium are solicited. Such proposals should give:
- The proposed title of the symposium
- The name and affiliation(s) of the organiser(s)
- A short outline of the contents
- The planned number of papers (preferably in the range from 3 to 10).
