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 practice.
