ParCo 2015

Event Dates: September 1, 2015 - 12:00am - September 4, 2015 - 12:00am

The University of Edinburgh is hosting the International Conference on Parallel Computing (ParCo) from 1-4 September 2015:

This is the latest in the series of biennial ParCo conferences that started in Berlin, 1983. This makes ParCo one of the longest running international conferences on parallel computing. Over the years, the conference has established itself as the foremost platform for exchanging know-how on the newest parallel computing strategies, technologies, methods, and tools.



The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the state of the art of the developments, applications, and future trends in parallel computing for the whole range of platforms. The conference addresses all aspects of parallel computing, including applications, hardware and software technologies as well as languages and development environments.



ParCo conferences feature keynote presentations from leading figures in the parallel computing field. This year we are pleased to announce the following keynote speakers:

  • Stephen Furber, ICL Professor of Computer Engineering, School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, UK.  Title: Bio-Inspired Massively-Parallel Computation

  • Simon McIntosh-Smith, Head of the HPC Research Group at the University of Bristol, UK Title: Scientific Software Challenges in the Extreme Scaling Era

  • Keshav Pingali, Professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Austin, USA Title: Parallel Program = Operator + Schedule + Parallel data structure

  • Rick Stevens, Associate Laboratory Director, Argonne National Laboratory and Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Chicago, USA.  Title: How might future HPC architectures utilize emerging neuromorphic chip technology?
