This is a selected list of international academic conferences in the fields of distributed computing, parallel computing, and concurrent computing.

Selection criteria[edit]

The conferences listed here are major conferences of the area; they have been selected using the following criteria:-

  1. the notability of the conference has been confirmed by multiple independent sources; for example, it has been mentioned in textbooks[1][2][3] or other sources,[4][5] or it has received a high ranking[6]
  2. the conference focuses on distributed and parallel computing (instead of having a much broader scope such as algorithms in general)
  3. the conference covers a reasonably large part of the fields of distributed and parallel computing (instead of focusing on a narrow sub-topic).

For the first criterion, references are provided; criteria 2–3 are usually clear from the name of the conference.
