Call for papers

Parco 2015: Call for Papers: Industrial Session

Parallel computing, for many years the enabling technology of high-end machines, is now the key for the efficient use of any kind of computer architecture, from embedded and personal up to exascale systems.

ParCo2015 continues the tradition of the international conferences on parallel computing started in Berlin, Germany, in 1983. This makes ParCo one of the longest running international conferences on parallel computing. Over the years, the conference established itself as the foremost platform for exchanging know-how on the newest parallel computing strategies, technologies, methods, and tools.

The high scientific standard of the conference presentations and the refereed proceedings have become the hall-mark of ParCo.

As with all previous conferences in this series ParCo2015 will, through its informal nature, give participants excellent opportunities to meet and interact with fellow researchers.

Aims and Scope

The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the state of the art of the developments, applications, and future trends in parallel computing for the whole range of platforms. The conference addresses all aspects of parallel computing, including applications, hardware and software technologies as well as languages and development environments.


The scientific program consists of invited and contributed papers as well as mini-symposia covering special topics. The draft programme is available here:

Papers are presented in parallel sessions with 20 minutes available per presentation, with an additional five minutes for discussion.

Contributions for the industrial session

The industrial session takes place on the afternoon of Wednesday  2nd September.

Contributed papers for the industrial session are called for. Extended abstracts of at least two pages should be submitted in electronic form by 24th July  2015. Proposals are to be submitted in .pdf-format, in English.

Papers must demonstrate industrial application of parallel computing, or show how the work described will have an impact on industry.

Abstracts should clearly describe the contents of the proposed paper. The relevance and originality of the contribution must be described and the most important references included. At most five relevant keywords must be supplied.

Submission of paper proposals:

Paper proposals can be submitted using ConfTool at Authors are required to register with the system before they can enter their proposals.


Extended abstracts of papers:  24th July 2015

Notification of acceptance for presentation at conference: 3rdAugust 2015

Submission of full (draft) papers 24th August 2015


The conference proceedings will be published after the conference.

An invitation to (an) author(s) to present a paper at the conference is based on an extended abstract or draft paper. Thus, the presentation of a paper at the conference does not imply an automatic acceptance of the presented paper for publication in the conference proceedings. All papers presented at the conference will be refereed at or after the conference. Only accepted papers will be published.
