The 14th International Euro-Par Conference
European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
(Euro-Par 2008)



August 26-29th, 2008
UAB-ULPGC, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 25th, 2008

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 2008 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 and cluster computing
  7. Peer to peer computing
  8. Distributed systems and algorithms
  9. Parallel and distributed programming
  10. Parallel numerical algorithms
  11. Distributed and high performance multimedia
  12. Theory and algorithms for parallel computation
  13. High performance networks
  14. Mobile and ubiquitous computing

Full details on the topics, including topic description and chairs, are available on the Euro-Par 2008 website (http://europar2008.caos.uab.es). The conference will feature tutorials and invited talks. Co-located workshops are also planned.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Full papers - 10 pages, Springer LNCS style. Paper submission will be performed electronically via the conference Web site 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

Following the model of Dresden and Rennes, Euro-Par 2008 will feature a series of satellite workshops on Tuesday, August 26th.

Proposals for workshops, covering a specific theme and lasting between half a day and a day, are encouraged and solicited until April 2nd, 2008.

We plan to publish a special workshop volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series -"Proceedings of the International Euro-Par Workshops 2008" after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as editor of the workshop volume.

Please contact the Conference Chairs (europar2008@caos.uab.es) for additional details and proposals.


Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a Spanish city, the capital city of Gran Canaria which is one of the Canary Islands. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is today a cosmopolitan city. It has a big sea-port ("Puerto de la Luz" harbor), and five main beaches, among them, "Las Canteras" beach has no counterpart in the world.

The population of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was 377,056 as of 2006, making it the largest city in the Canary Islands and the eighth most populous city in Spain.

Gran Canaria, a Biospheric Reserve, is a real continent in miniature, which will enthrall you with its long golden beaches and endless dunes of white sand, its green ravines, picturesque villages and valuable historical quarters that will take you back to former times.

According to a study carried out by Thomas Whitmore, director of research on climatology at the Syracuse University (USA), the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria enjoys the best climate in the world.

The nearest airport is the Gran Canaria International Airport ( Las Palmas - Gando International Airport) located 18 km from the capital.

The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) was founded in 1989. Despite its youth, in a few years the ULPGC has managed to position itself as a well worth Spanish university, emphasizing the use of the Information and Telecommunications technologies, the programs of international mobility and at its close involvement with the local society.
