AusPDC 2015 : The 13th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing
Call For Papers
The 13th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC 2015) will be held in Sydney, Australia in conjunction with Australasian Computer Science Week, 27-30 January 2015.
Scope of the Symposium
In 2010, AusGrid event was broadened to include all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and hence was called as Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC). Following a couple of successful events, it comes to the 12th this year in the series. In both New Zealand and Australia parallel and distributed computing has been recognised as strategic technologies for driving their moves towards knowledge economies. A number of projects and initiatives are underway in both countries in these areas. There is a natural interest in tools which support collaboration and access to remote resources given the challenges of the countries location and sparse populations.
Topics of interest for the symposium include (but not limited to):
GPUs and other forms of special purpose processors
Service computing and workflow management
Managing large distributed data sets
Middleware and tools
Performance evaluation and modeling
Parallel programming models, languages and compilers
Resource scheduling and load balancing
Computational Science and Engineering
Reliability, security, privacy and dependability
Applications and e-Science
The submitted papers will be accepted in two forms:
Regular Paper: will be published in the conference proceedings and have the oral presentation during the conference.
Poster Paper: will be published in the conference proceedings and have the poster presentation during the conference.
Short Paper*: will be published in the conference proceedings and have the oral presentation during the conference.
* We encourage PhD students to submit their research and early results as a short paper. They will receive advice and constructive commentary from research experts. They will have an oral presentation during the conference as well.
