Workshops and Tutorials

ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA) 2024 will take place June 17-21, 2024 in Nantes, France. 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 2024 workshops and tutorials will be held on June 17, 2024, which will consist of workshops for a half-day and tutorials for 1 or 1.5 hours.
