       PELGA: Performance Engineering for Large Scale Graph Analytics

                    held in conjunction with EuroPar'16
                   August 22nd, 2016 - Grenoble, France

We have extended the deadline of our PELGA workshop!! You have till  May 
16th to send us your contributions related to graph processing and its 

Important dates:
Submission Deadline: May 16, 2016, AoE
Author Notification: June 17, 2016

Workshop camera-ready (for LNCS post-proceedings) due: September 30, 2016

Graph processing is becoming a significant consumer of computing
resources as the graphs grow in size (social networking, advanced
marketing, life sciences, health and bioinformatics services, academic
networks) and the analysis tasks grow increasingly complex. To enable
existing algorithms to fit modern architectures and scale with these new 
requirements, there is a growing need for performance engineering.
PELGA’16 is a venue for specialists from both industry and academia to
discuss the state of the art of graph processing systems, with a special 
focus on performance. Contributions focusing on graph-centric
performance engineering tools and methods, workload characterization,
and performance modeling are especially welcome. We also invite
contributions covering surveys, performance studies, comparative
analyses, new algorithms and new graph processing systems. This broad
mix of ideas will stir discussion and lead to new collaborations and new 

We invite mature papers (regular, 12-pages long, LNCS format), 
work-in-progress and experience papers (short, 6-pages long, LNCS 
format), and position papers (also short, 6-pages long, LNCS format). 
All papers will be peer-reviewed and published in the workshop informal 
proceedings (available during the conference). The camera-ready versions 
of the papers will be published by Springer in a common EuroPar Workshop 
Proceedings volume, *after the conference*.

procedure please visit our website:

We are looking forward to your submissions!

on behalf of the program committee,
