IPDPS 2019 Call For Papers (CLOSED)

IPDPS 2019

33rd IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
May 20-24, 2019
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


  • Authors must register their paper; submit an abstract by October 8, 2018
  • Authors must then submit full versions of registered papers by October 15, 2018.
  • All deadlines are end of day ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
  • Before submitting, review the information under WHAT/WHERE TO SUBMIT below.
  • Abstracts are due October 8th and full manuscripts must be received by October 15th. This is a final, hard deadline. To ensure fairness, no extensions will be given.


Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems.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

  • Parallel and distributed computing theory and algorithms (Algorithms): Design and analysis of novel numerical and combinatorial parallel algorithms; protocols for resource management; communication and synchronization on parallel and distributed systems; parallel algorithms handling power, mobility, and resilience.
  • Experiments and practice in parallel and distributed computing (Experiments): Design and experimental evaluation of applications of parallel and distributed computing in simulation and analysis; experiments on the use of novel commercial or research architectures, accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, and other non-traditional systems; algorithms for cloud computing; domain-specific parallel and distributed algorithms; performance modeling and analysis of parallel and distributed algorithms.
  • Programming models, compilers and runtimes for parallel applications and systems (Programming Models): Parallel programming paradigms, models and languages; compilers, runtime systems, programming environments and tools for the support of parallel programming; parallel software development and productivity.
  • System software and middleware for parallel and distributed systems (System Software): System software support for scientific workflows; storage and I/O systems; system software for resource management, job scheduling, and energy-efficiency; frameworks targeting cloud and distributed systems; system software support for accelerators and heterogeneous HPC computing systems; interactions between the OS, runtime, compiler, middleware, and tools; system software support for fault tolerance and resilience; containers and virtual machines; system software supporting data management, scalable data analytics, machine learning, and deep learning; specialized operating systems and runtime systems for high performance computing and exascale systems; system software for future novel computing platforms including quantum, neuromorphic, and bio-inspired computing.
  • Architecture: Architectures for instruction-level and thread-level parallelism; memory technologies and hierarchies; exascale system designs; data center architectures; novel big data architectures; special-purpose architectures and accelerators; network and interconnect architectures; parallel I/O and storage systems; power-efficient and green computing systems; resilience and dependable architectures; performance modeling and evaluation.
  • Multidisciplinary: Papers that cross the boundaries of the previous tracks are encouraged and can be submitted to the multidisciplinary track. During submission of multidisciplinary papers, authors should indicate their subject areas that can come from any area. Contributions should either target two or more core areas of parallel and distributed computing where the whole is larger than sum of its components, or advance the use of parallel and distributed computing in other areas of science and engineering.  


The program committee will nominate a few papers for recognition. Upon presentation at a special session, the best papers will be selected by a committee.


A few papers from each area will be selected by the Program Chairs and Area co-Chairs and invited for submission to a special issue of JPDC dedicated to IPDPS. The final papers should have at least 30% extra material and will be reviewed as any JPDC submission, but fast-tracked to appear a few months after the conference.


Abstracts must be submitted by October 8, 2018; submitted abstracts may not exceed 500 words. Manuscripts must be submitted by October 15, 2018; 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. The submitted manuscripts should include author names and affiliations.

The IEEE conference style templates for MS Word and LaTeX provided by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing are available for download. See the latest versions here.

Files should be submitted by following the instructions at the IPDPS 2019 Submission Site (powered by Linklings). Click here to submit abstract and register your paper by October 8th.


All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, potential impact, 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. Authors will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the reviews of their submission before the Program Committee convenes for a decision.

Questions may be sent to Abstracts are due October 8, 2018, and full manuscripts must be received by October 15, 2018. This is a final, hard deadline. To ensure fairness, no extensions will be given.

Preliminary decisions will be sent by December 10, 2018, with a decision of either accept, revise, or reject. Authors of “revised” papers will have the opportunity to revise the content according to reviewers’ comments and will submit their final paper (together with a cover letter explaining the changes) by January 7, 2019.  Notification of final decisions will be mailed by January 21, 2019, and camera-ready papers will be due February 15, 2019.
