The International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing,
Applications and Technologies (PDCAT) is a major forum for scientists,
engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present their
latest research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all
areas of parallel and distributed computing. Beginning in Hong Kong in
2000, PDCAT will come back to Hong Kong in 2014 after 14 years of
successful journey through various countries/regions including Taiwan,
Japan, China, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and Korea across
Asia-Oceania. We are inviting new and unpublished papers on, but not
limited to, the following topics:

[NETWORKING AND ARCHITECTURES] Interconnection networks,
Parallel/distributed architectures, Heterogeneous and multimedia
Systems, ATM networks, Reliability and fault-tolerance Ubiquitous
computing systems, Computer networks, Communication and
telecommunication, Wireless networks and mobile computing, Optical
networks, Cloud/Grid computing systems, Reconfigurable architecture.

[SOFTWARE SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGIES] Formal methods and programming
languages, Internet computing, Image processing and computer vision,
Agent technologies, Operating systems, Software tools and
environments, Parallelizing compilers, Web services, Component-based
and OO Technology, Simulation and Visualization.

[ALGORITHMS AND APPLICATIONS] Parallel/distributed algorithms, Task
mapping and job scheduling, Distributed data and knowledge based
systems, Image processing and computer graphics, High-performance
scientific computing, Reconfigurable high-performance computing,
Resource allocation and management, Network routing and communication
algorithms, Bioinformatics, Database applications and data mining,
Intelligent computing and neural networks.

[SECURITY AND PRIVACY] Access control and authorization,
Authentication/biometrics/smartcards, Distributed systems security,
Mobile code and mobile agent security, RFID applications, Privacy
preserving computation, Applied cryptography, Database security,
Intrusion detection and survivability, P2P & ad hoc networks, Cloud
security, Security protocols.

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and
experience are solicited. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the
conference proceedings. Papers must be written in English and
submitted electronically as a PDF/Word file at Submissions should be made in IEEE
conference proceedings format (template available at, and must not
exceed 6 pages in length. Conference proceedings is planned to be
published by IEEE Computer Society. Extended versions of selected
