IPDPS 2010 CALL FOR PAPERS: SCOPE
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Work focusing on emerging technologies is especially welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Parallel and distributed algorithms, focusing on issues such as: stability, scalability, and fault-tolerance of algorithms and data structures for parallel and distributed systems, communication and synchronization protocols, network algorithms, scheduling and load balancing.
* Applications of parallel and distributed computing, including web applications, peer-to-peer computing, grid computing, scientific applications, and mobile computing. Papers focusing on applications using novel commercial or research architectures, or discussing scalability toward the exascale level are encouraged.
* Parallel and distributed architectures, including architectures for instruction-level and thread-level parallelism; petascale and exascale systems designs; special-purpose architectures, including graphics processors, signal processors, network processors, media accelerators and other special purpose processors and accelerators; impact of technology on architecture; network and interconnect architectures; parallel I/O and storage systems; architecture of the memory hierarchy; power-efficient architectures; dependable architectures; and performance modeling and evaluation.
* Parallel and distributed software, including parallel and multicore programming languages and compilers, runtime systems, operating systems, resource management, middleware, libraries, performance modeling and evaluation, parallel programming paradigms, and programming environments and tools.
BEST PAPERS AWARDS
Awards will be given for one best paper in each of the four conference technical tracks: algorithms, applications, architectures, and software. Selected papers will be considered for possible publication in a special issue of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.
WHAT/WHERE TO SUBMIT
Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 15 single-spaced pages using 12-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. Please use the standard 1-inch margin. Authors may submit additional material as an appendix to their submission, but there is no guarantee that this material will influence the review process. Files should be submitted by following the instructions available at www.ipdps.org (after August 1st). Authors must ensure that electronically submitted files are formatted in PDF format for 8.5x11 inch paper. Authors who have e-mail access, but not web access, should send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org for an automatic reply that will contain detailed instructions for submission of manuscripts. They should also contact the Program Chair at: email@example.com. Authors who have no electronic access (e-mail or web) should contact the Program Chair at: Sandia National Laboratories, Mail Stop 1318, P.O. Box 5800, Albuquerque, NM, 87185-1318, USA.
REVIEW OF MANUSCRIPTS
All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers may NOT have appeared in, or be under consideration for, another conference or workshop, or for a journal. Abstracts (typically a paragraph or two) must be received by Monday, September 21, 2009, by 11:59pm, U.S. Eastern Daylight Time. Full manuscripts must be received by September 28, 2009, by 11:59 PM, U.S. Eastern Daylight Time. This is a final, hard deadline; to ensure fairness, no extensions will be given. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by December 7, 2009 (typically electronically). Camera-ready papers will be due February 1, 2010.
