Concurrent and distributed computer architectures, based on multi/many-core or distributed computer units, have become a standard de-facto in computer systems. Today, these architectures take a role at any scale, from high-end servers to personal and mobile devices, and they underlie various recent computing paradigms, like Cloud, Edge and Fog Computing.
The continuously-growing level of hardware parallelism and heterogeneity has led concurrent and distributed systems to be even more complex to optimize, in particular in terms of energy efficiency and performance, which are known to be highly interrelated. Nonetheless, these aspects are of paramount importance, especially because of the high demand for electricity by IT sector. This facet is further exacerbated by the recent energy crisis and the rising energy prices.
Actually, various aspects of concurrent and/or distributed systems that make complex to deal with them (like the complexity of the underlying architectures, data dependencies, the use of shared resources, the hardware heterogeneity) can also offer new opportunities for designing novel methods and techniques for their energy and performance optimization.
PECS aims to establish a venue for both academia and industry to discuss challenges and perspectives, and to explore methods, techniques and tools for energy efficiency and performance optimization in concurrent and distributed systems.
High-quality research papers are solicited on all aspects related to energy efficiency and performance of concurrent and/or distributed computer systems, focusing on the following topics (but not limited to):
This edition is colocated with the 29th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing (Euro-PAR).
