Welcome to SBAC-PAD 2017

The International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing (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. This year, the symposium will be held at Campinas, Brazil, one of the main cities in the state of São Paulo.

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 call for papers page. Important dates are available here. Paper submission can be done here.
