Call for Papers

The 13th International Euro-Par Conference
European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing

August 28-31, 2007

IRISA, Rennes, France


In conjunction with the First CoreGRID European Network of Excellence Symposium

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed computing. Euro-Par focuses on all aspects of hardware, software, algorithms and applications in this field. The objective of Euro-Par is to provide a forum within which to promote the development of parallel and distributed computing both as an industrial technique and an academic discipline, extending the frontier of both the state of the art and the state of the practice.

The conference is organized along to the following topics:

  • Topic 1. Support tools and environments
  • Topic 2. Performance prediction and evaluation
  • Topic 3. Scheduling and load-balancing
  • Topic 4. High performance architectures and compilers
  • Topic 5. Parallel and distributed databases
  • Topic 6. Grid and cluster computing
  • Topic 7. Peer to peer computing
  • Topic 8. Distributed systems and algorithms
  • Topic 9. Parallel and distributed programming
  • Topic 10. Parallel numerical algorithms
  • Topic 11. Distributed and high performance multimedia
  • Topic 12. Theory and algorithms for parallel computation
  • Topic 13. High performance networks
  • Topic 14. Mobile and ubiquitous computing

Full details on the topics, including topic description and chairs, are available on the Euro-Par 2007 website. The conference will feature tutorials and invited talks. Co-located workshops are also planned.

In addition, this year, for the first time, Euro-Par will be held in conjunction with the First European network of Excellence CoreGRID Symposium, thus acknowledging the increasing importance of Grid computing in the Euro-Par community. Venue


The city of Rennes is located on the Western part of France, at the heart of the Brittany Region. Brittany enjoys a very rich cultural heritage. Of world-wide reputation is the Mont Saint-Michel and the corsair city of Saint-Malo, both located 1-hour drive north from Rennes. Rennes is very well connected with Paris with the high-speed TGV, Rennes also runs an international airport located close to the city centre with direct connections to most French cities, and optimized flight connection with most European cities through Paris.

IRISA (Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systèmes Aléatoires) is joint research laboratory, between INRIA and CNRS among others, one of the largest lab in Computer Science in France. IRISA is also well-known for its strong involvement in high-performance computing, distributed systems and parallel machines and codes. Together with Grenoble, it was the location for the first parallel machines installed in France.

Important Dates:
January 26, 2007: Full papers due
May 4, 2007: Notification of acceptance
May 26, 2007: Camera-ready full papers and author registration due

Full papers:

We invite authors to submit full papers (10 pages, Springer LNCS style), offering original contributions regarding the theory and practice of parallel and distributed computing. Full submission guidelines are available on the conference website. Only contributions not submitted elsewhere for publication will be considered. Authors must submit their papers to the specific topic they judge most appropriate. Details on topics, including descriptions and chairs, are available on the conference website.

Paper submission will be performed electronically via the conference Web site in PDF format. Papers accepted for publication must also be supplied in source form (LaTeX or Word). All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, published by Springer in the LNCS series. Authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.

Call for additional Conference Workshop:

Following last year's issue in Dresden, Euro-Par 2007 will feature a series of satellite workshops on Tuesday, August 18, afternoon, just between the CoreGRID Symposium and the conference's main sessions.

Proposals for workshops covering a specific theme and lasting between half a day and a day are encouraged and solicited until April 2, 2006. Contact has been taken with Springer to publish a special workshop volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series - "Proceedings of the International Euro-Par Workshops 2007" after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as editor of the workshop volume. Please contact the Workshop Chair for additional details and proposals.

Conference Co-Chairs:

Anne-Marie Kermarrec, IRISA/INRIA, Rennes, France
Luc Bougé, IRISA/ENS Cachan, Rennes, France
Thierry Priol, IRISA/INRIA, Rennes France
