Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts on topics from a wide range of high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture, systems software, languages and compilers,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.

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. Authors should notice that SBAC-PAD is a double-blind review conference, and thus submissions should not carry any information which could be used to identify its authors. 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.

SBAC-PAD is an international annual conference, started in 1987. In each new edition an overview of new developments, applications and trends in parallel and distributed computing technologies are presented. The conference is open for faculty members, researches, specialists and graduate students. With a strong international participation, the submissions come typically from several countries around the world.

SBAC-PAD 2013 will be held in Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil. Located in the northeast of Brazil, this exciting place is one of the most preferred tourist destinations of Brazil. In Porto you find world class resorts, beautiful beaches and a nice infrastructure for conferences.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Application-specific systems
  • Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
  • Cloud, Grid, cluster, and peer-to-peer systems
  • Embedded and pervasive systems
  • GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerator architectures
  • Languages, compilers, and tools for parallel and distributed programming
  • Modeling and simulation methodology
  • Operating systems and virtualization
  • Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and applications
  • Power and energy-efficient systems
  • Processor, cache, memory, storage, and network architecture
  • Real-world applications and case studies
  • Reconfigurable and fault-tolerant systems
