Upcoming news

The growing number of interesting and significant research papers submitted to PDP demonstrates that the conference is becoming an ever more important international event in the field of parallel and distributed computing research. In particular, the Program Committee of this edition received 239 submissions from 54 countries, which is a record number.
On average each paper received 3.5 reviews. The result was the selection of 68 regular papers for publication in these proceedings: the overall acceptance rate of full papers in the PDP 2015 is 28%, 31% including special sessions.

Best paper award of the main track presented to:
Eduardo H. M. Cruz, Matthias Diener, Laércio L. Pilla and Philippe O. A. Navaux, "An Efficient Algorithm for Communication-Based Task Mapping"

Best paper award of the special sessions presented to:
Jim Ng, Xiaohang Wang, Amit Kumar Singh and Terrence Mak, "DeFrag: Defragmentation for Efficient Runtime Resource Allocation in NoC-based Many-core Systems"

Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing

Call for Papers

Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing, from industry and the scientific community. PDP 2015 will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
  • Parallel Computing: massively parallel machines; embedded parallel and distributed systems; multi- and many-core systems; GPU and FPGA based parallel systems; parallel I/O; memory organisation.
  • Distributed and Network-based Computing: Cluster, Grid, Web and Cloud computing; mobile computing; interconnection networks.
  • Big Data: large scale data processing; distributed databases and archives; large scale data management; metadata; data intensive applications.
  • Models and Tools: programming languages and environments; runtime support systems; performance prediction and analysis; simulation of parallel and distributed systems.
  • Systems and Architectures: novel system architectures; high data throughput architectures; service-oriented architectures; heterogeneous systems; shared-memory and message-passing systems; middleware and distributed operating systems; dependability and survivability; resource management.
  • Advanced Algorithms and Applications: distributed algorithms; multi-disciplinary applications; computations over irregular domains; numerical applications with multi-level parallelism; real-time distributed applications.

Important Dates

Paper submission: 25th Aug. 2014, 1st Sept 15th Sept. 2014

Conference: 4th - 6th Mar. 2015

Submission of Papers:

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format ( double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track or to Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2015) with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session.

Double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Publication: All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
