Parallel computing is no longer a niche research field but an essential
ingredient in all aspects of computer science. ACM Transactions on
Parallel Computing (TOPC) is a forum for novel and innovative work on all
aspects of parallel computing, including foundational and theoretical
aspects, systems, languages, architectures, tools, and applications. It
will address all classes of parallel-processing platforms including
concurrent, multithreaded, multicore, accelerated, multiprocessor,
clusters, and supercomputers.
TOPC will span the range from foundational research in parallel computing
to principles extracted from experimental investigations. Submissions
should describe novel solutions to important challenges in exploiting
parallelism. Solutions should be generic enough to be used beyond the
specific application area in which the problem arose. Papers describing
experiences should indicate how they illustrate general principles; papers
about parallel computing foundations should indicate how they relate to
- Parallel Programming Languages and Models
- Parallel System Software
- Parallel Architectures
- Parallel Algorithms and Theory
- Parallel Applications
- Tools for Parallel Computing

Instructions for Authors
- We encourage you to prepare the submission in LaTeX or Microsoft Word in the ACM style. You can find more information on the ACM website:
- Your submission must adhere to the ACM polices on prior publication, including correct citations of your own and other prior work. Your submission needs to include a cover letter documenting where any prior version of the submitted material may have appeared in or as part of a thesis, workshop, conference, or journal publication.
Please read ACM's policies on these issues:
- An important aspect of preparing your paper for publication by ACM
Press is to provide the proper indexing and retrieval information from the
ACM Computing Classification
System (CCS). This is beneficial to you because accurate
categorization provides the reader with quick content reference,
facilitating the search for related literature, as well as searches for
your work in ACM's Digital Library and on other online resources.
TO CLASSIFY WORKS USING ACM'S COMPUTING CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM for
instructions on how to classify your document using the 2012 ACM
Computing Classification System and insert the index terms into your
LaTeX or Microsoft Word source file.
- Your submission should include ACM Categories and Subject Descriptors. There is additional information on the ACM Computing Classification System page.
- There is no page limit on the submission. However, authors should use their judgment to ensure a paper has an appropriate length for the material presented.
- You will submit your manuscript using Editorial Manager.
ACM has partnered with American Journal Experts (AJE) to provide language editing (and translation) services to ACM authors. AJE has helped thousands of researchers around the world to present their research in polished English suitable for publication in journals such as those published by ACM. Editing is available for both Word and LaTeX files.
To take advantage of this partnership, visit http://www.aje.com/c/acm15 for a 15% discount off all AJE services. (Editing services are at author expense and do not guarantee publication of a paper.)
Please note that formatting assistance is provided at no charge to
authors by Aptara, as specified on the author style guide page:
Supplemental Online-only Material
Please provide a brief description of your supplementary online-only material (i.e., text and multimedia material) to be published in the Digital Library. A short “readme.txt” file will appear in the DL along with your supplementary material describing its content and whatever requirements there are for using it.
