Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing including development of experimental or commercial systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Parallel and distributed algorithms, including communication and synchronization protocols.
  • Applications of parallel and distributed computing, including web applications, peer-to-peer computing, grid computing and scientific applications.
  • Parallel and distributed architectures, including signal and image processors, network processors, other special purpose processors, nontraditional processor technologies, network and interconnect architecture, performance modeling and evaluation.
  • Parallel and distributed software, including parallel programming languages and compilers, operating system, runtime, middleware, libraries, programming environments and tools for parallel and distributed computing.

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 12 single-spaced pages of text using 12-point size type on 8.5x11 inch pages. References, figures, tables, etc. may be included in addition to the twelve pages of text. Hardcopy submissions will be accepted, but files in either PostScript (level 2) or PDF format are strongly encouraged. (Note: Authors need to make sure that the electronically submitted files will print on a PostScript printer that uses 8.5x11 inch paper.) Submissions will be judged on originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, interest and relevance to the conference attendees, and correctness. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be considered for another conference. 

Submission procedures for those who have only e-mail access: send an e-mail message to cfp@ipdps.org
for an automatic reply that will contain detailed instructions for submission of manuscripts. If no electronic access is available, contact the program chair at the address given below.

All manuscripts will be reviewed. Manuscripts must be received by October 4, 2002 at 12 Noon EST. (Note: Authors will be granted an automatic extension of up to 1 week - 168 hours - without making a special request. However, no further extensions will be granted.) Submissions received after the due date or exceeding the length limit may not be considered. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by December 20, 2002. Camera-ready papers will be due January 24, 2003.

IPDPS 2003 Proceedings for both contributed papers and workshops will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press on CD-ROM and will be distributed at the Symposium along with a hard copy volume of abstracts.
