[DMANET] Highlights of Parallel Computing (HOPC) Call for Papers (Nantes, France)

Dear colleagues,

We have extended the deadline for HOPC to April 25th (to be after the PODC
notification). If you are planning to attend SPAA/PODC this year, please
consider submitting your recent published work as an abstract to HOPC!

Call for Papers: HOPC'24


Highlights of Parallel Computing

Nantes, France. June 17-21, 2024

to be held in conjunction with ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms
and Architectures (SPAA'24) <>

also co-located with ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing
(PODC'24) <>


The Highlights of Parallel Computing (HOPC) is a workshop that will be
co-located with SPAA'24 (also co-located with PODC). In HOPC, participants
will present talks on recent papers on parallel computing (both theory and
practice) that did not appear at SPAA to the SPAA community. This will be
an opportunity for the SPAA community to interact with researchers
interested in parallelism who (perhaps) do not usually submit their work to
SPAA, and vice versa.

Although SPAA is a conference focusing on theory, historically it has also
placed a strong emphasis on research which combines theory and practice.
This workshop aims to provide a unique platform for both theoreticians and
practitioners to discuss how to implement practically-efficient parallel
algorithms based on theoretical results, as well as to understand what
theory is needed in practical large-scale applications.

The scope of HOPC consists of any work on parallel computing that was
accepted to a publication venue up to 3 years before the date of this
conference (i.e., June 2021 onward). For more information, please see the
Call For Papers page at

Submission Guidelines


Papers must be submitted in the form of a 2-page (maximum) abstract,
including bibliography. The review process is single-blind. The authors
need to specify their names, affiliations, as well as the original
conference version of this paper on the first page.

We recommend the authors use the ACM template in "sigconf" format (i.e.,
the same as the SPAA conference papers). This is a single-spaced
double-column format for US-letter paper, with a 9-point font size.
Submissions must be in PDF format.

An accepted paper will be invited to a poster presentation at the reception
of the SPAA conference. Selected papers will give oral presentations before
or during SPAA.
