17th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models

APDCM2015 May 25, 2015, to be held in conjunction with

29th IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium

IPDPS May 25-29, 2015 Hyderabad, INDIA


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, GPU computing models, 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 using Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. We also welcome comprehensive survey papers on timely topics. Abstracts must be registered through EasyChair by January 15, 2015(extended). After the abstract registration, the PDF of the paper must be submitted by January 20, 2015(extended).


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.
