Call for Special Sessions

Proposals are solicited for special session to be held in conjunction with PDP 2018. Special sessions may focus on domain-specific applications or other topics related with (but not completely overlapping) the conference scope:

  • Parallel Computing
  • Distributed and Network-based Computing
  • Data Intensive Computing
  • Models and Tools
  • Systems and Architectures
  • Advanced Algorithms and Applications

Special sessions proceedings will be published in the same volume as for the main track of PDP by Conference Publishing Service (CPS). To simplify the submission process, paper submission of special session can be placed in the same reviewing system as for the main track.
