SPAA 2021 Call for Workshops/Tutorials

33rd ACM Symposium on Parallelism in
Algorithms and Architectures

July 5 - 8, 2021
Online (originally in Philadelphia)

ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA) 2021 will take place July 5-8, 2021 online. To allow a broad audience to participate, SPAA will host a series of workshops and tutorials to learn more about research challenges and discuss research questions, to exchange exciting ideas, and to build up communities and possible new collaborations.

The SPAA 2021 workshops and tutorials plan to be held on July 5, 2021, which will consist of workshops for a half-day and tutorials for 1.5 or 3 hours. We welcome proposals for workshops and tutorials that are either within the scope of the SPAA community or research challenges in related areas/problems that have potential impacts on the SPAA community. Proposals will be evaluated on an ongoing basis so early submissions are encouraged and will be evaluated immediately.
