IPDPS 2007 Call for Papers

Submissions for regular contributed papers is closed. See WORKSHOPS and COMMERCIAL pages for other ways to participate in IPDPS 2007.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research in all areas of parallel and distributed processing, including the development of experimental or commercial systems.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.

BEST PAPER AWARDS – 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.

WHAT/WHERE TO SUBMIT –Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 15 single-spaced pages (one or two columns) using 12-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. --Please use the standard 1-inch margin.-- 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.

Note that EDAS will not accept manuscripts that exceed 15 pages, so authors who wish to include appended material should send an Appendix as a pdf document with a file name that has the paper number (ipdps07-xxx-appendix) to the Program Chair at and make the subject of the email the same as the attached file name. Authors who submit appended material must include in their paper at the end of the Introduction a statement (in bold) that an Appendix has been submitted to the Program Chair. Again, the reading of this extra material is at the discretion of the reviewers.

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:

REVIEW OF MANUSCRIPTS – 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 9, 2006, by 12:00 midnight, U.S. Eastern Daylight Time. This is a final, hard deadline; to ensure fairness, no extensions will be given. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by December 11, 2006 (typically electronically). Camera-ready papers will be due January 22, 2007.
