Call For Papers
PDP 2014 - The 22nd Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing
12th - 14th February, 2014
We invite you to submit papers to the 22nd Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing, to be held at the University of Turin, Italy, on 12th – 14th February 2014.
Paper submission: 26th Aug 2013 (extended, firm)
Acceptance notification: 7th Oct 2013
Camera ready due: 31st Oct 2013
Conference: 12th - 14th Feb 2014
Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing, from industry and the scientific community.
PDP 2014 will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
• Parallel Computing: massively parallel machines; embedded parallel and distributed systems; multi- and many-core systems; GPU and FPGA based parallel systems; parallel I/O; memory organisation.
• Distributed and Network-based Computing: Cluster, Grid, Web and Cloud computing; mobile computing; interconnection networks.
• Big Data: large scale data processing; distributed databases and archives; large scale data management; metadata; data intensive applications.
• Models and Tools: programming languages and environments; runtime support systems; performance prediction and analysis; simulation of parallel and distributed systems.
• Systems and Architectures: novel system architectures; high data throughput architectures; service-oriented architectures; heterogeneous systems; shared-memory and message-passing systems; middleware and distributed operating systems; dependability and survivability; resource management.
• Advanced Algorithms and Applications: distributed algorithms; multi-disciplinary applications; computations over irregular domains; numerical applications with multi-level parallelism; real-time distributed applications.
Please find more details on the web site http://www.pdp2014.org.
In addition to the main track, 9 special sessions on specific topics will be organised within the conference. They are:
• High Performance Computing in Modelling and Simulation (HPCMS)
• On-Chip Parallel and Network-Based Systems (OCPNBS)
• Multi-Core and Many-Core systems for EMbedded Computing (MC3)
• Cloud Computing on Infrastructure as a Service and its Applications
• Energy-Aware Computing
• Security in Networked and Distributed Systems (SNDS)
• Advances in High-Performance Bioinformatics, Systems and Synthetic Biology
• GPU Computing and Hybrid Computing
• Formal Approaches to Parallel and Distributed Systems (4PAD)
The call for papers for special sessions is available at: http://www.pdp2014.org/specialsessions.html
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). Double-bind review: the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract; in the reference list, references to the authors’ own work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries.
Proceedings (of both the main track and the special sessions) will be published in one volume by IEEE Computer Society. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be indexed, among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
