Call for Papers

The past twenty years have seen a flurry of activity in the are of parallel and distributed computing. In recent years, novel parallel and distributed computational models have been proposed in the literature, reflecting advances in new computational devices and environments such as optical interconnects, programmable logic arrays, networks of workstations, radio communications, mobile computing, DNA computing, quantum computing, sensor networks etc. It is very encouraging to note that the advent of these new models has lead to significant advances in the resolution of various difficult problems of practical interest.

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of the parallel and distributed computational models. The workshop is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing taken in an inclusive, rather than exclusive, sense. We are convinced that the workshop atmosphere will be conducive to open and mutually beneficial exchanges of ideas between the participants.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Models of Parallel and Distributed Computing

Radio communication models, Mobile computing models, Sensor network models, Hardware-specific models, FPGA models, Systolic arrays and cellular automata, peer-to-peer models, Biologically-based computing models, Quantum models, Reconfigurable models, Optical models, CUDA, BSP and LogP models

Algorithms and Applications

Geometric and graph algorithms, Combinatorial algorithms, Randomized and approximation techniques, Numerical algorithms, Network algorithms, Localized algorithms, Distributed algorithms, Image processing, High-performance computing, GPU applications, MapReduce

Practical Aspects

Architectural and implementation issues, Performance analysis and simulation, PVM/MPI, Multi-core processors, Programmable logic arrays, GPGPU, Design of network protocols, Embedded systems, Cloud computing, Cluster Computing, Development tools, Fault tolerance, Security Issues

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, not to exceed 10 pages based on Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. We also welcome comprehensive survey papers on timely topics. The PDF of the paper must be submitted through EasyChair by January 15, 2013(extended). Submitted papers can be updated anytime until January 20, 2013 (extended).

Abstract Pre-submission

We also accept pre-submission of abstract. If the plain text of the abstract of a paper is submitted by January 15, 2013 (extended), the PDF of the paper for review can be uploaded/updated later, by January 20, 2013 (extended). For pre-submission of abstract, authors should select “Abstract Only” check box when it is submitted through EasyChair.

If the PDF file of the paper is not uploaded by the due, the submission is automatically rejected. If an author pre-submits the abstract, the referees of the paper will be selected based on the submitted abstract. Hence, the submitted abstract must clearly state the contents and the results of the paper that will be submitted later.

Important Dates

  • Abstracts due: December 26, 2012 January 15, 2013 (extended)
  • Submissions due: January 1, 2013 January 20, 2013 (extended)
  • Notification: February 7, 2013
  • Final Manuscript due: February 28, 2013
  • Workshop date: May 20, 2013


The workshop proceedings will be published as “IEEE International Symposium on Parallel&Distributed Processing, Workshops” from IEEE Conference Publishing Service and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL digital libraries. Also they are submitted for indexing through INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

Special Issue

We plan to publish full versions of selected papers in the International Journal on Networking and Computing(IJNC). Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their manuscripts after the workshop.

The International Journal of Networking and Computing is a biannual journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles in all areas of networking and computing. It has both print and online versions. All papers are indexed in indexing services including DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Google Scholar, J-DreamII, and J-GLOBAL.

Please see International Journal on Networking and Computing(IJNC) for the details of submission.
