This is the *Call for Participants* for CPA 2018.

CPA 2018 will be held at Technische Universitat Dresden and is hosted by
the Faculty of Computer Science.  It starts on the evening of Sunday 19th.
August and finishes after lunch on Wednesday 22rd. August.  Conference
sessions will take place at the Faculty.

CPA is concerned with concurrency at all scales.  It aims to bridge the
gap between the mathematical theory of concurrency and its practical
application to the design, implementation and validation of parallel
applications for embedded, multicore and distributed computing systems.
Further information on the themes for CPA can be found in the Call for
Papers (now closed):



  * The list of accepted papers and Keynote talk is now available from:

    Abstracts for all these items are included.

<<< REMINDER >>>

  * CPA 2018 remains open for further proposals for mini-workshops and
    fringe presentations -- see:


  * Registration is open for CPA 2018:


    The registration fee has been set at EUR 400 (including VAT).
    This fee covers:

      - attendance at all conference, workshop and fringe sessions;
      - coffee/tea breaks, lunches and evening meals, including
        the conference dinner;
      - one copy of the Proceedings.

    Bed and breakfast accommodation is not provided from the registration
    fee.  Special reservation of rooms for CPA participants has been made at:

      Guesthouse "Am Weberplatz" of Technische Universtaet Dresden

    Please see the Registration page for details.  [NOTE: only a few rooms
    are still left and the CPA hold on those rooms expires on 31 July 2018,
    after which any remaining rooms will be open for public reservation.]

  * The registration page also gives details of student bursaries,
    sponsored by WoTUG.  Bursaries will provide a discount of EUR 100
    from the registration fee.

  * Proceedings will be published by IOS Press after the conference,
    with all delegates receiving a copy.  Electronic (PDF) copies of
    all papers will be available to delegates at the conference.

  * We are pleased to announce that Professor Christian Mayr will present
    a Keynote Address at CPA 2018 with the following Title and Abstract:

    "SpiNNaker-2: a 10 Million Core Processor System for Machine Learning
     and Brain Simulation"

    In the EU flagship HBP, TU Dresden and University of Manchester
    jointly develop the SpiNNaker-2 processor platform for brain
    simulation.  Characteristics of the SpiNNaker-2 system are 144 ARM
    cores per chip (including various numerical accelerators), for overall
    10 Mio cores with 5PFLOPS CPU performance and 0.6ExaOPS deep learning
    acceleration. The chips are implemented in a 22nm FDSOI technology,
    running as low as 0.4V with the usage of our Adaptive Body Biasing
    methodology. The SpiNNaker-2 system combines highly efficient machine
    learning, bio-inspired signal processing at millisecond latency
    and ultra-low energy operation. Thus, besides the main usage as a
    neuroscience platform, SpiNNaker-2 opens up completely new avenues in
    areas such as tactile internet, autonomous driving and industry 4.0.

    Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Christian Mayr is Chair of Highly-Parallel
    VLSI-Systems and Neuromorphic Circuits at Technische Universitat Dresden,

Thank you for reading this Call.  If you have any questions about the
conference, please email us at <cpa2018@xxxxxxxxx> or contact one of us
directly (see below for the organising committee).  Finally, we would be
grateful if you would forward this call to colleagues who might like to
