PDP 2023

31st Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing

Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing

Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of the cross-fertilization of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. Therefore, reviewing and assessing these new developments is paramount compared with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing from industry and the scientific community. PDP 2023 will provide a forum for presenting these and other issues through original research presentations and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level.
This year's edition is part of the dissemination activities of the ADMIRE project, wich will also be an exhibitor at the conference Demo Area together with E4 Computer Engineering.


Registration is now open!
Take advantage of our Early Registration fees until February 17th.

Program Committee

Heterogeneity is emerging as one of the main characteristics of today’s and future HPC environments where different node organizations, memory hierarchies, and kinds of exotic accelerators are increasingly present. It pervades the entire spectrum of Computing Continuum, ranging from large Cloud infrastructures and Datacenter up to the Internet of Things and Edge Computing environments, aimed at making available in a transparent and friendly way the multitude of low-power and heterogeneous HPC resources available everywhere around us. In this context, for Computational Science and Machine Learning, it is essential to leverage efficient and highly scalable libraries and tools capable of exploiting such modern heterogeneous computers. These systems are typically characterized by very different software environments, which require a new level of flexibility in the algorithms and methods used to achieve an adequate level of performance, with growing attention to energy consumption. This conference Special Session aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss recent advances in parallel methods and algorithms and their implementations on current and future heterogeneous HPC architectures. We solicit research works that address algorithmic design, implementation techniques, performance analysis, integration of parallel numerical methods in science and engineering applications, energy-aware techniques, and theoretical models that efficiently solve problems on heterogeneous platforms.

We focus on papers covering various topics of interest that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Tools and programming environments support different forms of parallelism.
  • Heterogeneous algorithms for dense and sparse numerical linear algebra
  • Heterogeneous algorithms for optimization and non-linear problems
  • Applications of heterogeneous numerical algorithms in science and engineering
  • Analysis methods for large data sets
  • Multi/Many-cores and GPU tools for the parallel solution of large-scale problems
  • Performance and scalability models
  • Energy-aware algorithms
  • Auto-tuning techniques for heterogeneous and parallel environments
  • Multi-level cache management
  • Task scheduling and load balancing among heterogeneous computing elements
  • HPC on low-power devices
  • Integration of Cloud/Fog/Edge computing techniques and tools


Programme Committee:

Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing principles from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage, reconfigurable networks) to new programming platforms (e.g MS Azure, Google Appe Engine), and internet-based applications. Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud systems allow the dynamic creation, destruction and management of virtual machines (VMs) as part of virtual computing infrastructures. IaaS Clouds provide a high-level of abstraction to the end user, one that allows the creation of on-demand services through a pay as you go infrastructure combined with elasticity. The increasingly large range of choices and availability of IaaS toolkits has also allowed creation of cloud solutions and frameworks even suitable for private deployment and practical IaaS use on smaller scales.

This special session on Cloud Computing is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of Cloud Computing technologies and applications with compute and data intensive workloads. The special session also aims at presenting the challenges and opportunities offered by the development of open-source Cloud Computing solutions, as well as case studies in applications of Cloud Computing.

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research in the areas of Cloud Computing, Fog/Edge, Serverless and Distributed Computing. With the rapid evolution of newly emerging technologies, this session also aims to provide a forum for novel methods and case studies on the integrated use of clouds, fogs, Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain systems. The general venue will be a good occasion to share, learn, and discuss the latest results in these research fields. The special session program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud Computing for scientific, compute and/or data intensive applications;
  • Virtual Machine scheduling and management algorithms;
  • Operational challenges, federative and interoperability aspects of IaaS systems;
  • Virtual machine/container image and virtual appliance storage management (e.g., caching, repositories, marketplaces);
  • Virtualization and container technologies and their effects on IaaS solutions;
  • Programming models, tools, orchestration techniques, applications, and workflows involving Cloud and IoT systems;
  • Cloud, Edge and Fog services for the Internet of Things;
  • Cloud, Edge, and Fog services for enhanced Blockchain infrastructures;
  • Performance evaluation, modelling, simulation, and prediction of integrated cloud, fog, blockchain and IoT systems;
  • Scalability issues of IoT-Fog-Cloud systems;
  • Security and Privacy aspects of data management in clouds, fogs, blockchain and IoT systems.


Programme Committee:

Recently, we are witnessing the growth of Internet-connected devices processing at an incredible pace. Devices that need to be “always-on” for accessing data and services through the network. This massive set of devices generates a lot of pressure on the computing infrastructure that is called to serve their requests. This is particularly critical when focusing on the so-called next-generation applications (NextGen), i.e., those applications characterized by stringent requirements in terms of latency, data, privacy, and network bandwidth. Such a “pressure” stimulates the evolution of classical Cloud computing platforms towards a large-scale distributed computing infrastructure of heterogeneous devices, forming a continuum from the Cloud to the Edge of the network.

This complex environment is determining a paradigm switch in the organization of computing infrastructures, moving from “mostly-centralized” to “mostly-decentralized” installments. Rather than relying on a traditional data center compute model, the notion of a compute continuum is gaining momentum, exploiting the right computational resources at optimal processing points in the system.

In the traditional cloud model, enterprise data is directed straight to the cloud for processing, where most of the heavy compute intelligence is located. But, in the transformative data-driven era we live in, this is increasingly not a viable long-term economic model due to the volume of data and a new emphasis on security, safety, privacy, latency, and reliability.

Today, data insights drive near real-time decisions directly affecting the operation of factories, cities, transportation, buildings, and homes. To cope, computing must be fast, efficient, and secure, which generally means putting more compute firepower closer to the data source. It builds the case for more on-device endpoint computing, more localized computing with a new breed of network and private edge servers, and sensible choices over which workloads need to remain in cloud data centers.

The cradle of this special session has been the focus group on the compute continuum that is part of the Italian National Laboratory on “High-Performance Computing: Key Technologies and Tools”, from which this initiative stems. Starting there, the special session aims to bring together experts from academia and industry to identify new challenges for the management of resources in cloud-edge infrastructures and promote this vision to academia and industry stakeholders.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • (near-) real-time service management across the compute continuum application models for next-generation continuum-based applications
  • continuum services allocation and orchestration
  • trusted and federated Cloud-Fog-Edge-IoT infrastructures
  • efficient data management and interoperable systems in the compute continuum
  • Mobile Edge Computing
  • Machine Learning for energy saving, scalability and performance improvements targeting the compute continuum
  • efficient simulation of large-scale compute continuum systems
  • domain-specific semantics and languages for the Compute Continuum


Programme Committee:

The global information technology ecosystem is currently in transition to a new generation of applications, which require intensive systems of acquisition, processing, and data storage, both at the sensor and the computer level. The new scientific applications, more complex, and the increasing availability of data generated by high resolution scientific instruments in domains as diverse as climate, energy, biomedicine, etc., require the synergies between high performance computing (HPC) and large-scale data analysis (Big Data). Today, the HPC world demands Big Data world techniques, while intensive data analysis requires HPC solutions. However, the tools and cultures of HPC and Big Data have diverged because HPC has traditionally focused on strongly coupled intensive computing problems, while Big Data has been geared towards data analysis in highly scalable applications.


The overall goal of this workshop is to create a scientific discussion forum to exchange techniques and experiences to improve the integration of the HPC and Big Data paradigms, providing a convenient way to create software and adapt existing hardware and software intensive in computing and data on an HPC platform.  Thus, this workshop aims at bringing together developers of IoT/edge/Fog/HPC applications with researchers in the field of distributed IT systems. It addresses researchers who are already employing distributed infrastructure techniques in IoT applications, as well as computer scientists working on the field of distributed systems interested in bringing new developments into the Big Data convergence area. 

The workshop will provide the opportunity to assess technology roadmaps to support IoT data collection, Data Analytics, and HPC at scale, and to share users’ experiences.

A sample of the interest of our proposal is the existence in Europe of a working group for the convergence between HPC and Big Data supported by ETP4HPC and BDVA, led by Prof. María S. Pérez and with the cooperation of several research groups in this proposal. In addition, Prof. Jesús Carretero collaborates in the preparation of the strategic research agenda of the European platform ETP4HPC in the line of data-intensive applications and Dr. Rafael Mayo-García coordinates the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) transversal Joint Programme ‘Digitalisation for energy’ where convergence research on HPC and Data Science is developed.


Target audience – why and to whom the workshop is of interest

The workshop addresses an audience with two profiles.

On the one hand, it attracts researchers who are already employing distributed infrastructure techniques to implement IoT/edge/Fog/Cloud/HPC solutions, in particular scientists who are developing data- and compute-intensive Big Data applications that include IoT data, large-scale IoT networks, and deployments, or complex analysis and machine learning pipelines to exploit the data. On the other hand, it attracts computer scientists working in the field of distributed systems interested in bringing new developments into the convergence of Big Data and HPC solutions.

Program Committee



Workshop format

We aim at a half-day workshop. 

We plan a combination of oral presentations, short talks about related topics from the main PDP conference, and a closing panel discussion.

We plan to host about 6 talks oral presentations, 20 minutes per talk, and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Talks selection will be based on the interest of the talk and the relation with the workshop.

In addition to the selected talks, the workshop will also feature a keynote and invited short talks from the main PDP track with the goal of extending the scope of our workshop. 

A final panel discussion will summarize the workshop and propose joint next steps to progress in Big Data–HPC convergence research in Supercomputers and large-scale distributed IT systems.

Attendance estimated is between 10 and 20 participants. 

Publicity Plan

The website will be hosted by the CABAHLA-CM project website ( 

The workshop will be advertised in an open call within the diverse networks of the workshop chairs and program committee, including local and international community networks. Advertisement includes announcements on the community’s, institution’s, personal websites, and email lists. 


This workshop proposal is a result of the work made at the CABAHLA-CM project (, a successful project that brings together four research groups, with vast experience in HPC and data-intensive systems, which has a strong national and international presence.  

This Project has been funded by the Comunidad de Madrid (Madrid Regional government) under the grant (S2018/TCS4423).



The current static usage model of HPC systems is becoming increasingly inefficient. This is driven by the continuously growing complexity and heterogeneity of system architectures, in combination with the increased usage of coupled applications, the need for strong scaling with extreme scale parallelism, and the increasing reliance on complex and dynamic workflows. As a consequence, we see a rise in research on malleable systems, middleware software and applications, which can adjust resource usage dynamically in order to extract a maximum of efficiency. 

Malleability allows systems to dynamically adjust the computation and storage needs of applications, on the one side, and the global system on the other. Such malleable systems, however, face a series of fundamental research challenges, including: who initiates changes in resource availability or usage? How is it communicated? How to compute the optimal usage? How can applications cope with dynamically changing resources? What should malleable programming models and abstractions look like? How to design resource management frameworks for malleable systems? What should be the API for applications? 

This tutorial will provide an in-depth presentation of emerging software designs to achieve malleability in high-performance computing, high-level parallel programming models, and programmability techniques to improve applications’ malleability. The main part of the tutorial will be devoted to showing and demonstrating FlexMPI, a framework for HPC malleability, and Limitless, an HPC monitoring system to get information from applications and systems and the usage of AI and ML techniques to steer malleability in systems and applications. Finally, we will show how to apply the solutions presented to two use cases: Wacom++ and Nek5000. 


1. System and system architecture considerations in designing malleable architectures.

2. Emerging software designs to achieve malleability in high-performance computing.

3. High-level parallel programming models and programmability techniques to improve applications’ malleability.

4.- FlexMPI framework for HPC malleability.

5. Limitless: Getting information from applications and systems.

6. Use of AI and ML techniques to steer malleability in systems and applications.

7. Experiences and use cases applying malleability to HPC applications: Wacom++ and Nek5000


  • FlexMPI platform.
  • LIMITLESS monitoring tool.
