18th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models

APDCM2016 May 23, 2016, to be held in conjunction with

30th IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium

IPDPS May 23-27, 2016 Chicago Hyatt Regency Chicago, Illinois USA


Call for Papers

The past twenty years have seen a flurry of activity in the area 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

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Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, not to exceed 10 pages using Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.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 19, 2016. After the abstract registration, the PDF of the paper must be submitted by January 24, 2016. Youn can update abstract and the PDF anytime before the due dates.


  • Speaker: Jie Wu (Temple University)
  • Title: Algorithmic Crowdsourcing
  • Abstract: This talk gives a survey of crowdsourcing applications, with a focus on algorithmic solutions. The recent search for Malaysia flight 370 and the history of human-computer chess matches are used as motivational examples. Several applications of crowdsourcing are discussed in different areas. Fundamental issues in crowdsourcing, in particular, incentive mechanisms for paid crowdsourcing, and algorithms and theory for crowdsourced problem-solving, are then reviewed. A set of paradigms for algorithmic crowdsourcing are given, with a focus on the cost-effective processing of a large set of data. The talk also discusses several on-going projects on crowdsourcing.
  • Bio: Jie Wu is Associate Vice Provost for International Affairs at Temple University. He also serves as the chair and a Laura H. Carnell Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. Prior to joining Temple University, he was a program director at the National Science Foundation and Distinguished Professor at Florida Atlantic University. His current research interests include mobile computing and wireless networks, routing protocols, cloud and green computing, network trust and security, and social network applications. Dr. Wu serves on several editorial boards, including IEEE Transactions on Service Computing and Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing. Dr. Wu is/ was general co-chair/chair for IEEE MASS 2006, IEEE IPDPS 2008, IEEE ICDCS 2013, ACM MobiHoc 2014, ICPP 2016, and IEEE CNS, as well as program co-chair for IEEE INFOCOM 2011 and CCF CNCC 2013. He was an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor, ACM Distinguished Speaker, and chair for the IEEE Technical Committee on Distributed Processing (TCDP). Dr. Wu is a CCF Distinguished Speaker and a Fellow of the IEEE.


Proceedings of the workshops including APDCM workshop are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.

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.
