Call for Papers


PDP 2024 aims to provide a premier forum for researchers and professionals to present their original research findings, fostering knowledge exchange and the exploration of new ideas at the highest technical level. We invite submissions on a wide range of topics related to Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing, including but not limited to::

  • ALGORITHMS: resource-aware and power-efficient algorithms; real-time and fault-tolerant distributed/parallel algorithms; graph and network algorithms
  • APPLICATIONS: numerical and scientific applications with multi-level parallelism; applications with computations over irregular domains; models and methods to enhance functional/non-functional application characteristics
  • DATA-INTENSIVE PROCESSING: large-scale data processing; distributed databases and archives; large-scale data management; scalable and next-generation storage systems; I/O performance tuning, benchmarking, and middleware; FAIR/open data systems
  • DISTRIBUTED & NETWORK-BASED COMPUTING: cluster, grid, fog/edge, mobile and cloud systems; FaaS and service-oriented processing; stochastic and approximate computing; cost, security, energy, and other non-functional requirements models and frameworks
  • PARALLEL COMPUTING: accelerator-based systems inc. GPU, FPGA, neuromorphic, and post-CMOS devices; embedded parallel systems; dependability, survivability, and fault-tolerance; methodologies, benchmarking/metrics, and performance analysis and tools
  • PROGRAMMING MODELS & TOOLS: programming languages, compilers, middleware, and OS; libraries, runtime, and systems software; notations; performance prediction and analysis; simulation and modelling of parallel/distributed systems
  • SYSTEMS & ARCHITECTURES: high data throughput and streaming architectures; memory organization; service-oriented architectures; heterogeneous and hybrid systems; resource management; post-CMOS architectures inc. quantum, neuromorphic, and others

Submission of Papers

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt) ( to the conference main track or one of the Special Sessions/Workshops through the EasyChair submission system ( indicating the Main Track or the chosen Special Session/Workshop.

  • Double-blind review: the paper should not contain authors’ names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors’ work entries should be substituted with the string “omitted for blind review.”
  • Registration: At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference and present in person their paper at the conference venue in Dublin.
  • Publication: All accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings volume published by Conference Publishing Services (
  • Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions: Final camera-ready papers should be submitted via the dedicated the PDP’2024 Author Paper Submission Site. For an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, the author has to present in person the paper at the conference.
