Call For Papers


32nd IEEE International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing
September 8-11, 2020
Porto, Portugal (Historical acceptance rate).

** NEW **
SBAC-PAD2020 deadline postponed to June 28, 2020

Following the recommendations/guidelines from the World Health
Organization (WHO), regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
outbreak, SBAC-PAD2020 will be converted to an online event.

However, the outbreak's impact led to several requests for postponing
significantly the deadlines. Following those requests, the
SBAC-PAD2020's organization decided to postpone the deadline for the
abstract/paper submission to June 28, 2020.

Stay safe!

Aims and Scope

SBAC-PAD is an international symposium, started in 1987, which has
continuously presented an overview of new developments, applications,
and trends in parallel and distributed computing
technologies. SBAC-PAD is open for faculty members, researchers,
specialists and graduate students around the world.

In this edition, the symposium will be held at the University of
Porto, Porto, Portugal. The city of Porto is famous for its Port wine
and beautiful scenery, architecture and cultural events. More
information about the conference can be found at
