IPDPS 2016 Call For Papers

30th IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
May 23-27, 2016
Chicago Hyatt Regency
Chicago, Illinois USA


Authors must register their paper and submit an abstract, typically a paragraph or two, by October 9, 2015.
Authors must then submit full versions of registered papers by October 16, 2015.
All deadlines are end of day ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
Before submitting, review the information under WHAT/WHERE TO SUBMIT below.
If you are new to submitting a paper via EDAS, see the EDAS Instructions to Authors.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems.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 is especially welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Parallel and distributed algorithms, focusing on topics such as: numerical, combinatorial, and data-intensive parallel algorithms, locality-aware and power-aware parallel algorithms, streaming algorithms, parallel algorithms in specific domains such as machine learning and network science, scalability of algorithms and data structures for parallel and distributed systems, communication and synchronization protocols, network algorithms, scheduling, and load balancing.

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; petascale and exascale systems designs; novel big data architectures; special purpose architectures, including graphics processors, signal processors, network processors, media accelerators, and other special purpose processors and accelerators; impact of technology on architecture; network and interconnect architectures; parallel I/O and storage systems; architecture of the memory hierarchy; power-efficient and green computing architectures; 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 green computing, middleware for 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.


The program committee will nominate papers for recognition in several categories including the four conference topic areas and will consider other paper attributes that merit recognition from the conference. The four 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:

LaTex Package (ZIP)
Word Template (ZIP)

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 8.5x11 inch paper.


All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, 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 Abstracts are due October 9, 2015 and full manuscripts must be received by October 16, 2015. This is a final, hard deadline; to ensure fairness, no extensions will be given. Notification of final decisions will be mailed by December 18, 2015, and camera-ready papers will be due February 01, 2016.


October 9, 2015: Registration of papers with abstracts will be accepted up to 11:59 PM Anywhere on Earth – required.
October 16, 2015: Submission of registered papers will be accepted up to 11:59 PM Anywhere on Earth – hard deadline, no extensions.
