Parallel Processing

IPDPS 2006 Call For Papers

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Work focusing on emerging technologies is especially welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Parallel and distributed algorithms, focusing on issues such as: stability, scalability, and fault tolerance of distributed systems, communication and synchronization protocols, network algorithms, and scheduling and load balancing.
  • Applications of parallel and distributed computing, including web applications, peer-to-peer computing, grid computing, scientific applications, and mobile computing.
  • Parallel and distributed architectures, including shared memory, distributed memory (including petascale system designs, and architectures with instruction-level and thread-level parallelism), special-purpose models (including signal and image processors, network processors, other special purpose processors), nontraditional processor technologies, network and interconnect architecture, parallel I/O and storage systems, system design issues for low power, design for high reliability, and performance modeling and evaluation.
  • Parallel and distributed software, including parallel programming languages and compilers, runtime systems, operating systems, resource management, middleware, libraries, data mining, and programming environments and tools.

Awards will be given for one best paper in each of the four conference technical tracks: algorithms, applications, architectures, and software. The selected papers also will be considered for possible publication in a special issue of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 15 single-spaced pages using 12-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. Authors may submit additional material as an appendix to their submission, but there is no guarantee that this material will influence the review process. Files should be submitted in PDF format. Authors must ensure that electronically submitted files are formatted for 8.5x11 inch paper.

  • Authors who have e-mail access, but not web access, should send an e-mail message to for an automatic reply that will contain detailed instructions for submission of manuscripts. They should also contact the Program Chair at:
  • Authors who have no electronic access (e-mail or web) should contact the Program Chair at: Department of Computer Science; University of Massachusetts Amherst; Amherst, MA 01003, USA.

All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted papers may NOT have appeared in, nor be under consideration for, another conference or workshop, nor for a journal. Manuscripts must be received by October 7, 2005, by 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (extended by 1 week to October 14th). This is a final, hard deadline; to ensure fairness, no extensions will be given. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by December 9, 2005 (typically electronically). Camera-ready papers will be due January 21, 2006.
