Organizations and Honors

The Euro-Par steering committee selects the future conference sites, oversees the planning of the yearly conferences and maintains the continuity of the series. Since we can now draw from a wide range of experience in running Euro-Par, the rules of membership of Europeans on the steering committee have been changed in 2006 and are as follows:

  • When a bid for organizing the conference is granted, one central member of the organization team is made an observer of the steering committee.
  • In the following year, when the conference is being held, this person becomes a full member of the steering committee.
  • Members remain on the steering committee until they hand in their resignation or do not attend two consecutive committee meetings.

Honorary members are appointed for life by the steering committee.

The Euro-Par Conference Format

Euro-Par is a yearly conference, which takes place in late August. Since the 1996 conference in Lyon, Euro-Par conferences consist of a large array of topics on all aspects of parallel processing, from theory to practice, from academia to industry. Depending on the individual volumes of submission, topics are merged intro tracks at the conference. The tracks are framed by high-level invited talks and introduced by tutorials of general interest.

Each topic is administered by a commitee of four or more people, depending on the expected number of submissions. One committee member, the global chair, represents the topic to the international community, another, the local chair, represents it to the conference organization team. Each submission is reviewed four times, each committee member is responsible for one review. Submission and reviewing is entirely electronic, except in extenuating circumstances.

All presented papers are available at the conference in the proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the series Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS). The contributions are classified into invited papers (talk:45-60 minutes, page limit: negotiable), distinguished papers (talk: 30 min, page limit: 12 pages) and regular papers (talk: 30 min, page limit: 10 pages; one extra page may be purchased).

The journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience will publish a best papers selection of Euro-Par each year. Participation is by invitation and requires the submission and review of an extended version of the conference paper.

The yearly Euro-Par Achievement Award is being conveyed at the conference banquet. Recipients are researchers with outstanding merit in parallel computing and an allegiance to the Euro-Par conference series.

The Euro-Par Advisory Board

The Euro-Par advisory board is an international gremium of professionals interested in fostering parallel computing, which serves as a representation of the Euro-Par community and a source of ideas for the development of the Euro-Par conference series. 

Non-Europeans may be members of the advisory board. Here is a list of current members.

There are two ways to get onto the Euro-Par advisory board:

  1. If you have served on a Euro-Par programme committee, your are put on the board automatically.
