APPT 2009 : the 8th international Conference on Advanced Parallel Processing Technologie
Conference Series : Advanced Parallel Programming Technologies
Call For Papers
APPT is a biennial conference on parallel and distributed processing. Its scope covers all aspects of parallel and distributed computing technologies, including architectures, software systems and tools, algorithms, and applications.
APPT was originated from collaborations by researchers from China and Germany and has evolved to be an international conference. The past seven conferences were held in Beijing, Koblenz, Changsha, Illmenau, Xiamen, Hongkong, and Guangzhou, respectively. APPT'09 will be the eighth in the series. Following the success of the last seven conferences, APPT'09 provides a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, and results about research in the areas related to parallel and distributed processing.
Although the original objective of APPT is to share the experience in the area of the parallel processing technology with the underlying theories and applications, more and more work will be focused on state-of-the-art research and projects due to the tremendous advances in multi-core architecture, wireless networks, mobile computing, sensor networks, distributed computing, and novel computing model and technologies.
Contributions are solicited in all areas and topics pertaining to pervasive computing research and applications. These include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
Parallel architectures and systems
Architectures for chip-level parallelism; Special-purpose architectures and accelerators; Architecture of the memory hierarchy; Network and interconnect architectures; Parallel I/O and storage systems; Power-efficient architectures; Dependable architectures
Parallel programming languages and compilers; Runtime systems, operating systems and virtualization; Resource management; Fault tolerance; Scalability and programming environments and tools
Parallel algorithms and applications
Massively parallel applications; Fault-tolerance of algorithms; Optimizations of communication and synchronization protocols; Network algorithms, Scheduling and load balancing; Scientific applications; Applications using multicore and/or GPUs
Peer-to-peer computing; Grid computing; Pervasive and mobile computing architectures; Security in networks and distributed systems
