Following the recommendations/guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), regarding the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, SBAC-PAD2020 will be converted to an online event.
However, the outbreak's impact led to several requests for
postponing significantly the deadlines. Following those
requests, the SBAC-PAD2020's organization decided to postpone
the deadline for the abstract/paper submission to
SBAC-PAD is an international symposium, started in 1987, which has continuously presented an overview of new developments, applications, and trends in parallel and distributed computing technologies. SBAC-PAD is open for faculty members, researchers, specialists and graduate students around the world.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on a wide range of high-performance and distributed computing areas. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
The 2020 symposium will be held at the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto, in Portugal. Porto is a historic and varied city, from the warren of narrow streets that make up the ancient Ribeira district through to the grand plaza of the Trindade district. The region is famed for the production of Port, which is still stored and matured in the vast cellars that stretch along the banks of the Douro River. It was selected as the best European destination three years in a row (2017, 2018, 2019). It is a very lively city, second largest in Portugal, hosting the second largest university.
This year's edition will start with an exciting event on big data, machine learning and quantum computing, the Summer School on Machine Learning and Big Data with Quantum Computing!
Bem vindos ao Porto!
