Call for Workshops

20th International European Conference on Parallel Processing

Euro-Par 2014
Porto, Portugal
August 25-29, 2014

Submission Deadline

Workshop proposal due: February 27, 2014, 23:59 AOE

Scope of the Conference

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed computing. It covers a wide spectrum of topics from algorithms and theory to software technology and hardware-related issues, with application areas ranging from scientific to mobile and cloud computing. The objective of Euro-Par is to provide a forum for the introduction, presentation and discussion of the latest scientific and technical advances, extending the frontier of both the state of the art and the state of the practice. A full list of topics covered by regular Euro-Par 2014 sessions can be found here.

To provide further meeting points for researchers to discuss and exchange ideas on topics related to parallel and distributed computing, Euro-Par 2014 will continue the tradition of co-locating workshops with the main conference and invites proposals for the workshop program. The workshops will be held on August 25-26, 2014, two days before the main conference. Workshop proceedings will be published in a separate LNCS Euro-Par 2014 volume after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as an editor of the workshop volume. Registered workshop participants will receive an electronic copy of the volume by mail. All authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

The proposals should include the following information:

  • Workshop title
  • Information on the organizers, including a short biography of each organizer
  • The tentative program committee
  • Description of the workshop including its objectives, its contents and its format, indicating a preference for the length of the workshop (half a day or a full day)
  • Potential attendees
  • Potential authors
  • Workshop background (previous editions)
  • Link to international projects/initiatives

The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals 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 of workshop proposals with common or very similar objectives and contents, a proposal on how to merge the overlapping workshops will be made.

Responsibility of the workshop organizers

  • Preparing the call for papers for the workshop and publicizing it
  • Maintaining the workshop Web site
  • Selecting the workshop program committee
  • Selecting the papers through a rigorous peer-review process. The organization will provide an EasyChair setup for all Euro-Par 2014 workshops and its use is highly recommended to facilitate paper submissions and reviewing. Each workshop will be an independent track within the Workshops EasyChair, fully managed by the respective organizers. The use of this centralized setup is mandatory for receiving the camera-ready versions of the accepted papers for the proceedings of the workshops. The workshop papers will not be published in the proceedings otherwise.
  • Delivering the final workshop program to the Euro-Par 2014 conference co-chairs in time
  • Delivering preliminary workshop proceedings in time before the conference
  • Providing the Euro-Par Steering Committee with a Management Report, after the conference, with keys 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 (10 pages max.) and writing an introductory preface to the workshop. Camera-ready papers will be published only if the management report has been delivered
