CRACS/INESC-TEC organizes Euro-Par 2014 - the 20th International Conference on Parallel Processing

25 August 2014

Euro-Par 2014 will take place in Porto, August 25 till 29th. It is organized by the Computer Science Department, Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto and by CRACS/INESC-TEC research unit. Fernando Silva, Inês Dutra and vítor Santos Costa are the conference chairs. Luís Lopes is chair of the Euro-Par 2014 Workshops.

Euro-Par 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.

Euro-Par provides 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.

The main audience of Euro-Par are the researchers in academic institutions, government laboratories and industrial organisations. Euro-Par's objective is to be the primary choice of such professionals for the presentation of new results in their specific areas. As a wide-spectrum conference, Euro-Par fosters the synergy of different topics in parallel and distributed computing. Of special interest are applications which demonstrate the effectiveness of the main Euro-Par topics.

In addition, Euro-Par conferences provide a platform for a number of accompanying, technical workshops. Thus, smaller and emerging communities can meet and develop more focussed topics or as yet less established topics. The unique organizational structure of a Euro-Par conference, which puts the hosting team in charge of both the scientific programme and the local organization, makes it a particularly lively and stimulating experience.
