ISPDC’ 2018 Call for Papers – Apply Now!

The next ISPDC edition will be held from 25 to 27 June 2018, in Geneva, Switzerland.
It will be organised by the Institute for IT Engineering and Telecommunications (inIT), University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Western Switzerland (HES-SO), Geneva Campus, hepia.
The mission of ISPDC is to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners involved in the development of new algorithms, architectures and applications for parallel and distributed computing, as well as visualisation and post-processing.
The goal is to provide an interactive and friendly yet professional forum for original research contributions describing novel ideas, groundbreaking results or quantified system experiences.
