Euro-Par 2008

14th International Euro-Par Conference European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing. (Euro-Par 2008)


August 26-29th, 2008
ULPGC, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed computing.

Euro-Par focuses on all aspects of hardware, software, algorithms and applications in this field. The objective of Euro-Par is to provide a forum within which to promote the development of parallel and distributed computing both as an industrial technique and an academic discipline, extending the frontier of both the state of the art and the state of the practice.
