Call For Papers

We invite you to submit your papers to our session titled: High-Level Parallel Programming Paradigms aligned with International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'10). The main focus of the session will be high-level programming paradigms for homogeneous and heterogeneous architectures. Novel ideas for mitigating the complexities associated with the design, development and running of parallel applications will be perfect for this session. The topics include (but are not limited to):

 New parallel programming models that address the issue of heterogeneity in architecture
 Experience with and improvements for existing programming models and run-time environments (e.g., MPI, OpenMP, Co-array Fortran, UPC, Charm++, etc.)
 Parallel compilers, programming and debugging tools and environments


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by emailing them to the session chairs or submitting them directly to the conference website. Please make the following as the subject line of your email: “PDPTA 2010-High-Level Parallel Programming Paradigms.” If sending the paper through the centralsubmission website (, please indicate on the paper that is intended for the session “High-Level Parallel Programming Paradigms”. Submissions must be sent by April 5, 2010 and they must be in either MS doc (or docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers). Authors of the selected papers will be notified by April 15th 2010.

Full papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. Two experts in the field who are independent of the conference program committee will referee each paper. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (in both, printed book form as well as online). The proceedings will be indexed in Inspec / IET /The Institute for Engineering and Technology, DBLP /Computer Science Bibliography, and others). The printed proceedings will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a number of research books being proposed/contracted with various publishers (such as, Springer, Elsevier, IOS, etc.) - these books would be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of sessions and workshops will be forming journal special issues to be published after the conference.

PDPTA'10 Conference is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP). WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate having 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries participating at WORLDCOMP Congress. A number of individual research tracks of the Congress have been held for many years; for example, PDPTA has been held annually since 1995 (PDPTA'10 is the 16th annual conference); ERSA has been held annually since 2001 (ERSA'10 is the 10th annual conference); ICAI has been held annually since 1999 (ICAI'10 is the 12th annual conference). Other tracks of WORLDCOMP Congress have similar records.

The motivation behind this federated congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number of research areas that interact. The model used to form PDPTA facilitates communication among researchers from all over the world in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, applied computing, and computational biology. Both inward research (core areas) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and applications) will be covered during the conference. PDPTA makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world.

(Each track/conference has its own committee members – what appears below is a partial list of members
of the steering committee of the federated event, i.e., WORLDCOMP.)
