32nd IEEE International Symposium on Computer Architecture
and High Performance Computing
September 8-11, 2020
Porto, Portugal

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.

In this edition, the symposium will be held at the University of Porto, Porto, Portugal. The city of Porto is famous for its Port wine and beautiful scenery, architecture and cultural events. More information about the conference can be found at


Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on a wide range of high-performance computing areas, including computer architecture, systems software, languages and compilers, algorithms and applications.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
-Application-specific systems
-Architecture and Programming Support for Emerging Domains (Big Data, Deep Learning)
-Benchmarking, performance measurements, and analysis
-Cloud, Grid, cluster, and peer-to-peer systems
-Embedded and pervasive systems
-GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerator architectures
-Languages, compilers, and tools for parallel and distributed programming
-Modeling and simulation methodology
-Operating systems and virtualization
-Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and applications
-Power and energy-efficient systems
-Processor, cache, memory, storage, and network architecture
-Real-world applications and case studies
-Reconfigurable, resilient and fault-tolerant systems

Submissions must be in English, 8 pages maximum, following the IEEE conference formatting guidelines. To be published in the conference proceedings and to be eligible for publication at the IEEE Xplore, at least one of the authors must register at the full rate and present her/his work.
