Speaker: SICSA Event, SICSA
Date: 22 August, 2022
Time: 01:00 - 01:00
Location: University of Glasgow, University Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8QQ, United Kingdom

SICSA is a proud sponsor of the 28th International European Conference On Parallel and Distributed Computing. Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects. Euro-Par’s unique organization into topics provides an excellent forum for focused technical discussion, as well as interaction with a large, broad and diverse audience. A week of scientific events including workshops, posters, and tutorials. Covering all topics related to parallel and distributed computing: Compilers, Tools and Environments Performance and Power Modelling, Prediction and Evaluation Scheduling and Load Balancing Data Management, Analytics and Machine Learning Cluster and Cloud Computing Theory and Algorithms for Parallel and Distributed Processing Parallel and Distributed Programming, Interfaces, and Languages Multicore and Manycore Parallelism Parallel Numerical Methods and Applications High-performance architectures and accelerators Parallelism in IoT/Edge Computing Proceedings in Springer LNCS series. In person and Online Euro-Par 2022 will be held as a hybrid event, in-person at the University of Glasgow, and online. The University campus is located in the West End of Glasgow and is easily reachable by air and by rail. Euro-Par 2022 is organised by the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, with support from Heriot-Watt University, the University of Edinburgh and the University of Stirling.

Location: University of Glasgow, University Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8QQ, United Kingdom

The EuroPar Doctoral Symposium is a forum for PhD students to present their work, meet and interact with peers, and to receive constructive feedback about their work from experts in the EuroPar community. The program will feature technical presentations by PhD students, general research advice, and discussions in panel and open formats. Call for Applications We invite submissions from PhD students at any stage of their doctoral studies. Applicants must be officially enrolled in a PhD Program at the time of submission, and each submission MUST be backed by an endorsement from the official PhD adviser(s). Required submission files are as follows: Proposal, including: Title of work, author and adviser(s) names, affiliations Abstract of the work Brief description of work being done, including the problem being addressed, the research methodology being used, and preliminary results (if any) Adviser Statement of Support on institutional letterhead, including: Declaration that the applicant is their PhD student, and the length of time of this relationship Confirmation of support for applicant’s participation The applicant's expected academic contributions The level of work that has been achieved by the student (in the course of or before the PhD work) How the student will prepare for the event How the student plans to attend the event (i.e. in person or online) How travel and accommodation costs are to be met, if planning to attend in person The expected impact of attending the event on the student's work Registration Studentships We are happy to announce that we can cover the registration fees of 28 student attendees. These are detailed as follows: 14 awards funded by SICSA. To qualify, you should be a PhD student currently studying Informatics and Computing Science within a SICSA institution. 14 awards funded by the Euro-Par Foundation. To qualify, you should be a PhD student studying Informatics and Computing Science at the time of the event. On top of the above specific criteria for each studentship, the following criteria will be used: Explicit recommendation by the supervisor(s) is paramount, as awards will be given based on the strength of the supervisor(s) letter. Priority will be given to in-person attendees. Key Dates Submissions: 20 May 2022 Notifications: 27 June 2022 Find out more about the Symposium.
