The ACM International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC)
is the premier annual conference on the design, the implementation, the evaluation, and
the use of parallel and distributed systems for high-end computing. HPDC'12 will take place
in Delft, the Netherlands, a historical, picturesque city that is less than one hour away
from Amsterdam-Schiphol airport. The conference will be held on June 20-22 (Wednesday to
Friday), with affiliated workshops taking place on June 18-19 (Monday and Tuesday).

Abstracts:    16 January 2012
Papers:       23 January 2012 (No extensions!)

Submissions are welcomed on all forms of high-performance parallel and distributed computing,
including but not limited to clusters, clouds, grids, utility computing, data-intensive
computing, and massively multicore systems. Submissions that explore solutions to estimate
and reduce the energy footprint of such systems are particularly encouraged. All papers
will be evaluated for their originality, potential impact, correctness, quality of
presentation, appropriate presentation of related work, and relevance to the conference,
with a strong preference for rigorous results obtained in operational parallel and
distributed systems.

The topics of interest of the conference include, but are not limited to, the following,
in the context of high-performance parallel and distributed computing:

    - Systems, networks, and architectures for high-end computing
    - Massively multicore systems
    - Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage
    - Programming languages and environments
    - I/O, storage systems, and data management
    - Resource management, energy and cost minimizations
    - Performance modeling and analysis
    - Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
    - Data-intensive computing
    - Applications of parallel and distributed computing

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 12 pages in PDF format, including
figures and references. Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and
submitted via the conference web site. No changes to the margins, spacing, or font sizes as
specified by the style file are allowed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM Digital Library. A limited number of
papers will be accepted as posters.

Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical substance required for the program
committee to evaluate their contributions. Submitted papers must be original work that has
not appeared in and is not under consideration for another conference or a journal. See the
ACM Prior Publication Policy for more details.

Workshop Proposals Due:			3 October 2011
Abstracts Due:				16 January 2012
Papers Due:				23 January 2012 (No extensions!)
Reviews Released to Authors:		8 March 2012
Author Rebuttals Due:			12 March 2012
Author Notifications:			19 March 2012
Final Papers Due:			16 April 2012
Conference Dates:			18-22 June 2012

Workshops affiliated with HPDC will be held on June 18-19 (Monday and Tuesday). For more
information on the workshops and for the complete Call for Workshop Proposals, see the
workshops page on the conference website http://www.hpdc.org/2012/workshops/call-for-workshops/.

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused
topics or emerging research areas. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, possibly
including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully
peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. Workshops could be scheduled for a half day or a full
day, depending on interest, space constraints, and organizer preference. Organizers should design
workshops for approximately 20-40 participants, to balance impact and effective discussion.

Workshop proposals must be sent to the HPDC'12 Workshops Chair, Alexandru Iosup, at
a.iosup at tudelft.nl, and should include:

- The name and acronym of the workshop
- A description (0.5-1 page) of the theme of the workshop
- A description (one paragraph) of the relation between the theme of the workshop and of HPDC
- A list of topics of interest
- The names and affiliations of the workshop organizers, and if applicable, of a significant
   portion of the program committee
- Data about previous offerings of the workshop (if any), including the attendance, the numbers
   of papers or presentations submitted and accepted, and the links to the corresponding websites
- A publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees

Due to publication deadlines, workshops must operate within roughly the following timeline: papers
due mid February (2-3 weeks after the HPDC deadline), and selected and sent to the publisher by
mid April.

Important dates:
