Goal of the PARS Workshop

PARS is the special interest group on parallel algorithms, parallel computer structures and parallel system software within the German Informatics Societies (GI/ITG). The goal of the bi-annual PARS Workshop is the presentation of important research within the scope of PARS and an exchange of ideas between the participants. Topics of interest are:

  • Parallel Algorithms (Presentation, Complexity, Applications)
  • Parallel Models of Computation and Parallel Architectures
  • Parallel Programming Languages and Libraries
  • Tools for Parallelization (Compilers, Performance Analysis, Auto-Tuner)
  • Parallel Embedded Systems / Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Software Engineering for Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • Multicore-, Manycore-, GPGPU-Computing and Heterogeneous Architectures
  • Cluster Computing, Grid Computing, Cloud Computing
  • Interconnect and Hardware Structures (e.g. reconfigurable systems)
  • Future Technologies and new Computational Paradigms for Architectures (SoC, PIM, STM, Memristor, DNA-Computing, Quantum Computing)
  • Teaching Parallel Computation (Experiences, E-Learning)
  • Parallel and Distributed Computing in Life Sciences (e.g. Bio-Informatics, Medical Informatics)

Workshop languages are German and Englisch. Papers are limited to 10 pages. The workshop proceedings will be published in the yearly newsletter of the PARS special interest group (PARS-Mitteilungen, ISSN 0177-0454). The Workshop fee will be about 100 EUR.
