24th International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing


First Call for Papers

SBAC-PAD is an established international conference series dating back to 1987. Each year the conference has traditionally presented leading edge developments in high performance applications, as well as the latest trends in computer architecture and parallel and distributed technologies.

In 2012 the symposium will be held outside Brazil for the first time.

SBAC-PAD 2012 will be hosted by Columbia University, New York City, USA. Pending approvals, it will be jointly sponsored by SBC (Brazilian Computer Society), IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing), and IEEE Computer Society.

The conference traditionally has strong international participation. The selection process is competitive, with acceptance rates below 33%. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE and will also be available online through the IEEE Digital Library.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts on topics from a wide range of high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture, systems software, languages and compilers, algorithms, networks, distributed systems and applications. Specific topics of interest are available here.

All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality,technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, interest and relevance to the conference attendees. We also seek to provide a forum for the early dissemination of original contributions on emerging topics, such as programming systems and tools for many-core processors, management software for solid-state storage systems, all aspects of game consoles, green IT and data-center-scale computing. Submissions on new topics will be reviewed with the understanding that they are likely to contain more limited quantitative evaluations than those on established topics.

Submissions must be in English, 8 pages maximum, following the IEEE conference formatting guidelines. Paper format instructions are available here. Papers should be submitted here.

The authors of selected papers will also be invited to submit extended versions of their work for possible publication in special issues of relevant top quality international journals.

Important Dates are available here.
