Topics/Call fo Papers

Since parallel systems have become a standard, and are easy to find nowadays from domestic laptops to the most powerful supercomputers (Top 500 Supercomputing), the Spanish Parallel Programming Contest is organized with the aim of promoting this programming paradigm among University students, following the lines of other contests such ACM Programming Contest (sequential), Maraton of Parallel programming (annually held in Brazil), Student Cluster Competition (in SC)...
This contest is directed to University students (first or second cycle degree, master or doctorate) with a maximum age of 28 at the time of registration. Non Spanish teams can participate without be included in the classification (they will receive a diploma with their position in the final classification, but they will not receive prizes).
The contest will consist of solving a number of problems in a given time. For each of the problems a sequential solution will be provided, and the teams will then develop their own faster solutions using a set of given technologies such as OpenMP, MPI or CUDA. The contestants will solve some problems with MPI and/or OpenMP in a cluster of four nodes each eight cores, and other problems with OpenMP and/or CUDA in a quadcore with a GPU.
