The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on the design and implementation of programming languages, tools and techniques for distributed, parallel and mobile programming.


Submitted papers should present original research that is unpublished and not submitted elsewhere. We encourage the submission of work in progress, especially by MSc and PhD students. We plan to provide a friendly environment where researchers can discuss current and future trends in programming languages for parallel and distributed programming.


At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the workshop and all workshop attendees must be registered to the SBLP 2008. The SBLP 2008 organization will publish the electronic proceedings in CD.



Paper Formatting


Papers can be written in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Papers should have at most 8 pages, following the SBC Manuscript Formatting Guidelines. -> Eventos -> Modelos para publicação de artigos
