Parallel and distributed computing is heavily dependent on and interacting with the developments and challenges concerning distributed systems, such as load balancing, asynchrony, failures, malicious and selfish behavior, long latencies, network partitions, disconnected operations and heterogeneity. This track of Euro-Par provides a forum for both theoretical and practical research, of interest to both academia and industry, on distributed computing, distributed algorithms, distributed systems, distributed computing models, distributed data structures, and parallel processing on distributed systems, in particular in relation to efficient high performance computing.
