Innsbruck is nestled in the valley of the Inn River and tucked between the Austrian Alps and the Tuxer mountain range. It has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and is surrounded by the eight ski regions of the Olympic Ski World, including the Stubai Glacier, which offers skiing year round. Climbing the 14th century Stadtturm on Herzog Friedrich Strasse provides a stunning view of the town and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it. Concerts at Ambras Castle provide listening pleasure in a beautiful renaissance setting. The sturdy medieval houses and sidewalk cafés of Old Town Innsbruck beckon you to sit for a while and watch people stroll by.
Innsbruck, with its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, offers something for every visitor. PDCN 2008 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter.
The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
Parallel Computing Systems
High Performance Computing
IP and ATM Networks
Modelling and Simulation
