The 46th International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP-2017) will be held in Bristol, UK during August 14-17, 2017.


Parallel and distributed computing is a central topic in science, engineering and society. ICPP, the International Conference on Parallel Processing, provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing.

ICPP 2017 will be organized around the following tracks:

  • Architecture, including processor; memory; I/O; network; instruction-, thread- and data-level parallelism; accelerators & other special-purpose hardware; power-aware/energy-efficient; performance
  • Algorithms, including combinatorial and numerical; scheduling; power- aware/energy-efficient; machine learning; modeling & analysis; scalability
  • Applications, including big data; data analytics; computational science & engineering (e.g., aerospace, arts; biology, finance, geology); scalability
  • Software, including systems software; middleware; programming models, languages, and environments; compilers; operating systems; run-time systems; resource management; performance modeling and evaluation
