The 19th International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing, Applications and Technologies (PDCAT-18) is a major forum for scientists, engineers,
and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all areas of parallel and distributed computing.
Beginning in Hong Kong in 2000, PDCAT-18 will be held in Jeju, Korea after 18 years of successful journey through various countries/regions including Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand,and Korea across Asia-Oceania.
Also, the conference will publish high-quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in Parallel and Distributed Computing, Applications and Technologies.
Furthermore, we expect that the conference and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in those important subjects.
Papers presented in the PDCAT 2018 will be published by Conference CD proceeding (without ISSN/ISBN)*.
Moreover, outstanding papers will be recommended to international journals indexed by SCI/E or SCOPUS.
