* Organizers: Provide a short vita of the organizers by listing the current affiliation, position, and previous experience in organizing other events including workshops/conferences/panels at IPDPS or other venues.
* History: If re-running (earlier editions were held somewhere other than IPDPS), provide general information by listing the name of the workshop, the hosting conference, year, number of papers submitted, number of papers accepted, number of attendees; if there were posters/panels, their numbers and topics (for panels), and URLâs of the existing web pages.
* Targeted papers and audience: Provide information on targeted papers and audience: (i) Where are the papers from (government labs, universities, industry); (ii) What is the expected profile of the participants (speakers + audience)? (iii) How will the workshop be advertised?
* Format of the workshop: Provide a short overview of the format by indicating if the workshop (i) will have peer reviewed papers in the proceedings? (ii) will be half day or full day long? (iii) will have a keynote talk? If yes, provide a tentative list of speakers; (iv) will have a panel? If yes, provide the topic and the potential panelists?

The proposals can be submitted using the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipdpsw2017proposals. Submitted proposals may not exceed three (3) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references.

IPDPS Workshops from the preceding year(s) should apply for renewal. For more information, please contact the workshops chair at workshops@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:workshops@xxxxxxxxx>.

All submitted proposals and renewal requests will be reviewed by the workshops committee. Both new workshop proposals and renewal requests are due 29 July 2016. Notification of final decisions for new proposals and renewal requests are expected to be mailed on 2 September 2016.

Held on the first and last day of the conference, IPDPS workshops provide an extended forum that allows the IPDPS community an opportunity to fully explore special topics and to present work that is more preliminary and cutting-edge or that has more practical content than the more mature research presented in the main symposium. Each workshop has its own requirements and schedule for submissions. Workshop papersâ submission dates typically fall after the notification date for main symposium papers. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.

CALL FOR PAPERS - Due October 18, 2016

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Work focusing on emerging technologies and interdisciplinary work covering multiple IPDPS areas are especially welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Parallel and distributed algorithms, focusing on topics such as: numerical and combinatorial parallel algorithms for analysis, machine learning and simulation; parallel algorithms for accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, and other non-traditional systems; algorithms for cloud computing; power-aware parallel algorithms; streaming algorithms; domain-specific parallel and distributed algorithms; performance modeling and analysis of parallel and distributed algorithms; run-time algorithms and protocols for resource management, communication and synchronization on parallel and distributed systems.

* Applications of parallel and distributed computing, including computational and data-enabled science and engineering, big data applications, parallel crowd sourcing, large-scale social network analysis, management of big data, cloud and grid computing, scientific, biological and medical applications, and mobile computing. Papers focusing on applications using novel commercial or research architectures, big data approaches, or discussing scalability toward the exascale level are encouraged.

* Parallel and distributed architectures, including architectures for instruction-level and thread-level parallelism; memory technologies and memory hierarchy architectures; exascale systems designs; data center architectures; novel big data architectures; special purpose architectures, including graphics processors, signal processors, network processors, media accelerators, neuromorphic systems, and other special purpose processors and accelerators; impact of technology on architecture; network and interconnect architectures; parallel I/O and storage systems; power-efficient and green computing systems; resilience and dependable architectures; and performance modeling and evaluation.

* Parallel and distributed software, including parallel and multicore programming languages and compilers, runtime systems, operating systems, resource management including, middleware for supercomputers, grids, clouds, and data centers, libraries, performance modeling and evaluation, parallel programming paradigms, and programming environments and tools. Papers focusing on novel software systems for big data and exascale systems are encouraged.

Papers that cross the boundaries of the four traditional tracks of IPDPS (Algorithms, Applications, Architecture and Software) are encouraged and will receive special attention. During submission, authors can indicate up to three subject areas that can come from any track.

The program committee will nominate papers for recognition in several categories including the four conference topic areas as well as best multidisciplinary paper and will consider other paper attributes that merit recognition from the conference. The five top best papers will be selected for presentation and the others will receive honorable mention in the conference program.

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. See style templates for details:

IPDPS will again require submission of abstracts and registration of papers one week before the paper submission deadline without any late exceptions. Files should be submitted by following the instructions available at the EDAS portal. Authors must ensure that electronically submitted files are formatted in PDF format for 8.5 x 11 inch paper.  The submission portal will be available by September. Return to this site to submit your abstract and upload your submission.

All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, potential impact, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers should NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for another conference, workshop or journal.

Questions may be sent to PC2017@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:PC2017@xxxxxxxxx>. Abstracts are due October 18, 2016 and full manuscripts must be received by October 23, 2016. This is a final, hard deadline; to ensure fairness, no extensions will be given. There will be a one week review feedback and author response period from November 28th to December 5th. Notification of final decisions will be mailed by January 8, 2017, and camera-ready papers will be due February 15, 2017.

October 18, 2016:  Registration of papers with abstracts will be accepted up to end of day ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
October 23, 2016: Submission of registered papers will be accepted up to end of day ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
