18th Euromicro International Conference 
on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing

PDP 2010

Pisa, Italy, February 17-19 2010.


Paper submission: July 20th, 2009.


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 such as telecommunications and multimedia. 
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.

The PDP 2010 aims to provide a forum for the presentation of these and other 
issues through original research presentations and to facilitate the exchange 
of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level. 

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  * Distributed Systems: Distributed databases, distributed object-oriented 
    systems, distributed operating systems, heterogeneous distributed systems, 
    distributed algorithms, distributed shared memory systems
  * Network-based Computing: Web computing, cluster computing, cloud 
    computing, computational grids, data grids, semantic grid, mobile agents, 
    distributed web services, security in distributed systems
  * Parallel Computer Systems: massively parallel machines, interconnection 
    networks, embedded parallel and distributed systems, fault-tolerance, 
    memory organization, support for parallel I/O, multi/many core systems, 
    GPU and FPGA based parallel systems
  * Models and Tools for Parallel Programming Environments: performance 
    prediction and analysis, simulation, knowledge-based parallel program 
    development, visualization tools
  * Advanced Applications: multi-disciplinary applications, parallel 
    databases, computations over irregular domains, numerical applications 
    with multi-level parallelism, real time distributed applications, 
    distributed business applications
  * Languages, Compilers and Runtime Support Systems: task and data 
    parallel languages, functional and logic languages, object-oriented 
    languages, dependability issues, scheduling and load balancing, 
    task and object migration

Special Sessions
The following special sessions will be organized within the conference:

  * Next Generation of Web Computing, 
    chair Konrad Klockner
  * Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of Peer-to-peer environments, 
    chair Didier El Baz
  * Grid, Parallel and Distributed Bioinformatics Applications, 
    chairs Ivan Merelli and Daniel D'Agostino
  * Grid and High Performance Computing for Nuclear Fusion Applications, 
    chair Rainer Stotzka and Jan Westerholm
  * On-chip Parallel and Network-based Systems, 
    chairs Sarbazi-Azad and N. Bagherzadeh
  * Virtualisation in Distributed Systems, 
    chair Thierry Delaittre
  * Parallel algorithms and software for sparse linear algebra computations, 
    chairs P. D'Ambra and D. Di Serafino
  * Scalable Data Intensive Applications, 
    chairs S. Orlando and R. Perego 
  * Security in Networked and Distributed Systems (SNDS 2010),
    chair Igor Kotenko

Papers can be submitted either to conference main track or to one of these 
Special Sessions. All accepted papers will be included in the unique IEEE 
proceedings book. Links to web pages relative to the Special Sessions 
are available at the PDP 2010 conference web site (http://www.pdp2010.org)

Important dates 
Deadline for paper submission:     July 20th, 2009
Acceptance notification:     	   October 5th, 2009
Camera ready paper due:     	   October 30th, 2009
Conference:     		   February 17-19th, 2010


PDP 2010 will take place at the Dept. of Computer Science of the University 
of Pisa, one of the most ancient university in Italy, with the most ancient 
Computer Science Dept. in Italy. We invite you to submit your papers and to 
join the conference in Pisa, the town of Galileo and of the leaning tower.

Paper submission
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in 
length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate an anonymous 
reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title 
and abstract; moreover, the name of the authors of the paper must not 
appear in the reference section.
