SBAC-PAD is an annual international conference series, the first of which was held in 1987. Each conference has traditionally presented new developments in high performance applications, as well as the latest trends in computer architecture and parallel and distributed technologies. The conference has strong international participation, with submissions typically coming from over a dozen countries. The selection process is competitive, with acceptance rate below 30% in recent years.
In 2015, the symposium will be held at the Majestic Palace Hotel in Florianopolis. Florianopolis is the state capital with the highest HDI in Brazil. Located in the Southern region of Brazil in the Island of Santa Catarina, also known as “Island of Magic”, Florianopolis is known by its beautiful beaches, historical buildings, environmental protected areas, and by an economy strongly based on information technology.
Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on a wide range of high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture, systems software, languages and compilers, algorithms, and applications. For more information, please check the topics and submission dates pages, or contact the organizing committee through firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Best Paper Award for SBAC-PAD 2015 was given to Arpith Jacob, Tong Chen, Zehra Sura, Changhoan Kim, Carlo Bertolli, Samuel Antao, Kevin O’Brien and Ravi Nair for their paper “Progressive Codesign of an Architecture and Compiler using a Proxy Application”.
We, the organizing committee, would like to thank all participants for the great event that we had this year. We would also like to thank you for your feedback through the conference’s feedback form, where you have shown your satisfaction with most aspects of SBAC-PAD (over 90% of Good and Very Good responses for most items).
