Call for Papers

We invite you to consider submitting papers to the 20th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing PDP 2012 that will be held at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Garching near Munich, Germany from 15th to 17th of February, 2012.

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.
The PDP 2012 aims to provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and to 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 organization
  • Distributed and Network-based Computing: Cluster, Grid, Web and Cloud computing; mobile computing; interconnection networks
  • Data Intensive Computing: 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; distributed business applications

Special Sessions

The following special sessions will be organized within the conference:

Paper Submission

Papers can be submitted to the conference main track or to Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2012 with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session. Papers will undergo a blind peer review process.
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract. Moreover, the names of the authors of the paper must not appear in citations in the reference section.
All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and to present the paper at the Workshop.
