Scope and objectives

Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC) is nowadays omnipresent. It is in all the computational environments, from mobile devices, laptops and desktops to clusters, large-scale data centers and supercomputers, often comprising CPUs and/or coprocessors of different types (GPU, MIC, FPGA). It becomes now vital to train new generations of scientists and engineers in the use of these computational systems: parallelism-related topics must be incorporated in Computer Science (CS) and Computer Engineering (CE) programs.

In this context, the 4th European Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing Education for Undergraduate Students (Euro-EDUPAR) invites unpublished manuscripts from individuals or teams from academia, industry, and other educational and research institutes on topics pertaining to the teaching of PDC topics in the Computer Science and Engineering curriculum as well as in Computational Science with PDC and/or High Performance Computing (HPC) concepts, with emphasis on European undergraduate teaching.
