Following very successful previous editions since 2002, the 17th ISPDC conference will be hosted in Geneva, just in front of the water jet. The conference will be devoted to a highly selective program for papers describing original and unpublished research advancing the state of the art in the field of new Parallel and Distributed Computing paradigms and applications. Parallel and Distributed Computing is today a central topic in science, engineering and society in the development of new approaches for the modeling, design, analysis, evaluation, and programming of future parallel and distributed computing systems and applications.

We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the 17th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC-2018), considering our mission to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners involved in the development of new algorithms and architectures for parallel and distributed computing, as well as visualisation and post-processing.
