SBAC-PAD is an annual international conference series, the
first of which was held 20 years ago, in 1987. Each
conference has traditionally presented new developments and
high performance applications, as well as the latest trends
in computer architecture and parallel and distributed
technologies. This year, the symposium returns to Gramado,
Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The conference will be held at
the Hotel "Serra Azul," located in the heart of downtown
Gramado and within walking distance of the main tourist

SBAC_PAD 2007 will be sponsored by the Brazilian Computer
Society, the IEEE Computer Society (approval pending)
through the Technical Committees on Computer Architecture
(TCCA) and Scalable Computing (TCSC), and IFIP. Authors are
invited to submit manuscripts that present original
unpublished research in all areas of computer architecture
and high performance computing. Work focusing on
applications or emerging technologies is especially
welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited

- Application-specific Architectures
- Benchmarking, Performance Measurements and Analysis
- Cache and Memory Architectures
- Embedded Systems
- Fault-Tolerant Architectures and Systems
- Grid, Cluster, and Peer-to-Peer Computing
- High Performance Applications and Parallel and
 Distributed Algorithms
- Interconnection Networks, Routing, and Communication
- Languages, Compilers and Tools for Parallel and
 Distributed Programming
- Load Balancing and Scheduling
- Microarchitecture
- Operating Systems and Virtualization
- Parallel and Distributed Architectures
- Pervasive and Heterogeneous Computing
- Real World Applications and Case Studies
- Reconfigurable Systems

SBAC-PAD invites manuscripts of original research, written
in English and not exceeding 8 pages in double column
following the IEEE Conference style, to be submitted in PDF
format. The proceeding will be published by the IEEE
Computer Society Press.

A blind submission and review process will be used,
therefore papers should be submitted without the authors'
names on the manuscript. Moreover, authors should take
every reasonable precautions to hide their identity.
Citations to the authors' own prior work can be included,
but references should be in the third person. Please check
the SBAC-PAD 2007 web site for further paper submission and
format information: http://www.sbc.org.br/sbac/2007/

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must
register and present the paper at the conference.
Simultaneous submission to other journals or conferences
with published proceedings is not allowed. An award will be
given to the best paper at the symposium and NEC do Brasil
will present the NEC AWARD, with a value of R$6000, to the
authors of the best paper in the general area of high
performance applications.

The authors of selected papers will also be invited to
submitted extended versions of their work for possible
publication in a special issue of the International Journal
of Parallel Programming.
