Call for Workshops
at ACM HPDC 2015

The organizers of the 24th International ACM Symposium on High-Performance
Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC'15) call for proposals for workshops
to be held with HPDC'15, co-located with the FCRC'15 Federated Computing
Research Conference. The workshops will be held in June 2015 in Portland Oregon.

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and
practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to the HPDC
community. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, including
invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully
peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. Workshops could be scheduled for
half a 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.

Proposal Submission:
Workshop proposals must be submitted in two stages:
Stage 1: Online Form athttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PaYSrYJby0tLmjcnFTtmsADzQakY4tgj596uoJqt5Ls/viewform
Stage 2: A proposal in PDF format sent via email to the HPDC'15 Workshops Chairs
athpdc15-workshops at datasys.cs.iit.edu

Stage 2 proposal 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

   talks, panel discussions, etc.)
- 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. Please also
   include expected number of submissions, accepted papers, and attendees that
   you anticipate for a successful workshop.

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.
