  3. Scheduling and Load Balancing
  4. High-Performance Architecture and Compilers
  5. Parallel and Distributed Data Management
  6. Grid Cluster and Cloud Computing
  7. Peer to Peer Computing
  8. Distributed Systems and Algorithms
  9. Parallel and Distributed Programming
  10. Parallel Numerical Algorithms
  11. Multicore and Manycore Programming
  12. Theory and Algorithms for Parallel Computation

Euro-Par 2011 is organized by National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), the University of Bordeaux I and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).

The Euro-Par 2011 conference will be held on the campus of Bordeaux II University, Place de la Victoire, in the center of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux is the largest city of the Aquitaine Region in South-West of France. It is known worldwide for its vineyards, chateaux, gastronomy and historical places.

Traveling to Bordeaux is very easy. Bordeaux hosts an international airport with connections to major cities in Europe (such as Rome, Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Dublin or Stockholm) as well as Paris and other cities in France. It is also directly connected to Paris by the high-speed TGV train.
