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 for the promotion 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 following topics will be covered by regular Euro-Par 2009 sessions:
1. Support tools and environments
2. Performance prediction and evaluation
3. Scheduling and load balancing
4. High performance architectures and compilers
5. Parallel and distributed databases
6. Grid, cluster, and cloud computing
7. Peer to peer computing
8. Distributed systems and algorithms
9. Parallel and distributed programming
10. Parallel numerical algorithms
11. Multicore and manycore programming
12. Theory and algorithms for parallel computation
13. High performance networks
14. Mobile and ubiquitous computing
Full details on the topics, including topic descriptions and chairs, are available on the Euro-Par 2009 website (http://europar2009.ewi.tudelft.nl). The conference will feature tutorials and invited talks. Co-located workshops are also planned.

Full papers should not exceed 10 pages in the Springer LNCS style. Paper submission will be performed electronically via the conference website in PDF format. Papers accepted for publication must also be supplied in source form (LaTeX or Word).
Papers must offer 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.

Call for Additional Conference Workshops
Euro-Par 2009 will feature a series of satellite workshops on August 24-25.
Proposals for workshops, covering a specific theme and lasting between half a day and a full day, are encouraged and solicited until April 1, 2009. Collective workshop proceedings are published in a separate LNCS Euro-Par 2009 workshop volume after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as editor of the workshop volume.
Please contact the Conference Chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) for
additional details and proposals.
The Euro-Par 2009 conference will be held on the campus of Delft University of Technology, which was founded in 1842 by King William II and which is the oldest and largest Technical University in the Netherlands. It is well established as one of the leading technical universities in the world.
Delft is a small, historical town dating back to the 13th century. Delft has many old buildings and small canals and has a lively atmosphere. The city offers a large variety of hotels and restaurants. Many other places of interest (e.g., Amsterdam and The Hague) are within one hour distance of traveling.
Traveling to Delft is easy. Delft is close to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (60 km, 45 minutes by train), which has direct connections from all major airports worldwide. Delft also has excellent train connections to the rest of Europe.
