Call For Papers


PDP 2018 - Call for Papers -


Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive changes over recent years. New architectures, advanced programming models, improved efficiency and novel application domains have rapidly become the central focus of this discipline.

These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed computational paradigms with other rapidly evolving technologies in different disciplines. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in relation with the recent research achievements in the different areas of parallel and distributed computing, considering both the industrial and scientific point of view.

PDP 2018 will provide a forum for the discusssion of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical and applicative level.

PDP 2018 will be held in Cambridge, UK, March 21-23, 2018.
