27th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
Lisbon, Portugal, 30 August – 3 September 2021
Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects. To provide a meeting point for researchers to discuss and exchange new ideas and hot topics related to parallel and distributed computing, Euro-Par 2021 will co-locate workshops with the main conference and invites proposals for the workshop program. The workshops will be held on August 30-31, 2021, during the first two days of the main conference.
The proposals should include the following information:
- Workshop title, acronym and preference for length (half or full-day)
- Information of the organizers, including a short biography of each organizer (5-10 lines)
- A tentative program committee (10-15 members). It could be extended later in case the number of submissions is higher than expected.
- Motivation of the workshop:
- scientific objective,
- interest to the Euro-Par community,
- positioning with respect to the currently existing Euro-Par workshops
- Description of the workshop:
- format (contributed papers, invited talks, panels, posters or any other kind of activity including european project meetings),
- organizational aspects
- Workshop background (number of previous editions jointly with Europar or in any other format)
- Link to international projects/initiatives
The decision about the acceptance/rejection of a workshop proposal will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and the degree to which it matches the scope of the conference. In the case that several workshop proposals have very similar objectives and scopes, a merge of overlapping workshops may be recommended. The topics covered by a workshop should not overlap with the main topics of the conference. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis. Proposals can already be sent, and the organizers may be notified before the notification deadline in case of a strong proposal.
- Preparing the call for papers for the workshop and publicizing it
- Preparing and maintaining the workshop Web site including the relevant sections according to the organization guidelines
- Selecting the workshop program committee considering that each member of the committee should make at least one review
- Selecting papers through a rigorous peer-review process including at least three reviews per submission using the provided EasyChair installation and considering the possible conflicts of interest
- Delivering the final workshop program to the Euro-Par 2021 conference co-chairs in time
- Delivering the preliminary workshop proceedings in time before the conference
- Providing the Euro-Par Steering Committee with a Management Report, after the conference, with key indicators such as: number of submitted and accepted papers, program committee and review process management
- Delivering the final workshop proceedings with a revised version of the papers in time after the conference in the required Springer LNCS format (12 pages max.) and writing a preface to the workshop. Camera-ready papers will be published only if the management report has been delivered
- Registering for the conference
- Meet the deadlines according to the organization guidelines
The workshop proceedings will be published in a separate LNCS workshop volume after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop, one person per workshop, will appear as co-editor of the workshop volume. Registered workshop participants will receive an electronic copy of the volume by email. All authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.
The Euro-Par organizers will provide an EasyChair setup for all Euro-Par 2021 workshops, and its use is mandatory to facilitate paper submissions, reviewing, and collecting the camera-ready versions. The workshop papers will not be published in the proceedings otherwise. Each workshop will be an independent track within the Workshops' EasyChair installation, but it will be fully manageable by the respective organizers.
Workshop proposals should be sent in PDF format to the general workshop co-chairs (see below).
