APDCM 2017 : 19th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models
Call For Papers
19th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models (APDCM)
May 29, 2017, to be held in conjunction with
31st IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS)
May 29-June 2, 2017 Buena Vista Palace Hotel, Orlando, Florida USA
The past twenty years have seen a flurry of activity in the area of parallel and distributed computing. In recent years, novel parallel and distributed computational models have been proposed in the literature, reflecting advances in new computational devices and environments such as optical interconnects, programmable logic arrays, networks of workstations, radio communications, mobile computing, DNA computing, quantum computing, sensor networks etc. It is very encouraging to note that the advent of these new models has lead to significant advances in the resolution of various difficult problems of practical interest.
The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of the parallel and distributed computational models. The workshop is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing taken in an inclusive, rather than exclusive, sense. We are convinced that the workshop atmosphere will be conducive to open and mutually beneficial exchanges of ideas between the participants.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
Models of Parallel and Distributed Computing: Radio communication models, Mobile computing models, Sensor network models, Hardware-specific models, FPGA models, Systolic arrays and cellular automata, peer-to-peer models, Biologically-based computing models, Quantum models, Reconfigurable models, Optical models, CUDA, OpenCL, GPU computing models, BSP and LogP models
Algorithms and Applications: Geometric and graph algorithms, Combinatorial algorithms, Randomized and approximation techniques, Numerical algorithms, Network algorithms, Localized algorithms, Distributed algorithms, Image processing, High-performance computing, GPU applications, MapReduce
Practical Aspects: Architectural and implementation issues, Performance analysis and simulation, PVM/MPI, Multi-core processors, Programmable logic arrays, GPGPU, Design of network protocols, Embedded systems, Cloud computing, Cluster Computing, Development tools, Fault tolerance, Security Issues
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, not to exceed 10 pages using Manuscript Templates for IEEE Conference Proceedings. We also welcome comprehensive survey papers on timely topics. Abstracts must be registered through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=apdcm2017) by January 15, 2017. After the abstract registration, the PDF of the paper must be submitted by January 20, 2017.
Proceedings of the workshops including APDCM workshop are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.
We plan to publish full versions of selected papers in the International Journal on Networking and Computing (http://www.ijnc.org) Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their manuscripts after the workshop.
All dates are in UTC and submission must be done by 23:59PM in UTC.
