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 covers a wide spectrum of topics from algorithms and theory to software technology and hardware-related issues, with application areas ranging from scientific to mobile and cloud computing.
Euro-Par provides a forum for the introduction, presentation and discussion of the latest scientific and technical advances, extending the frontier of both the state of the art and the state of the practice.
The main audience of Euro-Par are the researchers in academic institutions, government laboratories and industrial organisations. Euro-Par's objective is to be the primary choice of such professionals for the presentation of new results in their specific areas. As a wide-spectrum conference, Euro-Par fosters the synergy of different topics in parallel and distributed computing. Of special interest are applications which demonstrate the effectiveness of the main Euro-Par topics.
In addition, Euro-Par conferences provide a platform for a number of accompanying, technical workshops. Thus, smaller and emerging communities can meet and develop more focussed topics or as yet less established topics. The unique organizational structure of a Euro-Par conference, which puts the hosting team in charge of both the scientific programme and the local organization, makes it a particularly lively and stimulating experience.
The next Euro-Par conference will be Euro-Par 2022 in Glasgow, Scotland.
- 01.11.2021: The call for bids to host Euro-Par 2024 is open. Deadline for statements of intent: 31.01.2022
- 28.08.2021: Sir Charles Antony Richard Hoare is the recipient of the Euro-Par Achievement Award 2021. He has been one of the foremost proponents of program development as a mathematical discipline since the 1960s. He is the holder of the ACM Turing Award 1980 and of many other high distinctions. Tony Hoare advanced the area of parallel programming in many ways, notably with the framework Communicating Sequential Processes that comes in two forms: (1) a programming language, later realized in occam, the language for the transputer, and (2) a process algebra. He also proposed the shared data structure monitor. Tony Hoare is most widely known as the inceptor of Hoare logic, an axiomatic basis for the verification of sequential and also of parallel programs. He supported Euro-Par in its formative decade with two keynotes: one in Passau, 1997, the other in Klagenfurt, 2003.

- 27.08.2020: The British-born American theoretical physicist and computer scientist Geoffrey C. Fox of Indiana University at Bloomington, U.S.A., is the recipient of the Euro-Par Achievement award 2020. Fox played an important early and sustained role in the development of parallel and distributed computing. His first appearance at Euro-Par was in 1998 in Southampton, where he promoted the Java Grande Forum, an initiative to make Java more suitable for high-performance computing. He also supported the Grid and MapReduce paradigms by providing software and publication platforms for them. Fox lent crucial support to Euro-Par as generous and efficient editor-in-chief of the journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.

- 29.08.2019: Euro-Par Achievement Award 2019 goes to Rosa M. Badia from Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Congratulations Professor Badia and welcome in the Hall of Fame. Excerpt from the laudatio by Professor Christian Lengauer: "Rosa Badia has participated in projects from the Spanish national plan since 1989, and in many European projects. She has made her mark in academia as well as industry. One major hallmark is her work on software infrastructures for distributed parallelism. Her steadfastness, broad experience and good judgement make her a well sought-after counselor for her peers. Rosia Badia has made frequent appearances in the proceedings of the main conference as well as its accompanying workshops. She was a global chair of several topcs, the chair of workshop HeteroPar 2012 and keynote speaker at the workshop SPPEXA 2014.
