22nd Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models

APDCM2020 May 18, 2020, to be held in conjunction with

34th IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium

IPDPS May 18 – 22, 2020, New Orleans, Louisiana USA


Program and slides are available here.

Call for Papers

The past thirty 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

IPDPS is sponsored by IEEE, and all papers presented at IPDPS-APDCM workshop will be published in the Proceedings published from IEEE Computer Society and will be included in IEEE Xplore and CSDL digital libraries. Also they are submitted for indexing through INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

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Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, not to exceed 10 pages using Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.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 Easy Chair by February 14, 2020 (23:59 in UTC). Abstract submission is mandatory, because reviewers are selected based on abstracts. After the abstract registration, the PDF of the paper must be submitted by February 19, 2020 (23:59 in UTC). You can update abstract and the PDF anytime before the due dates.

Keynote Talk

  • Due to the COVID-19 situation, this keynote talk for APDCM2020 has been cancelled. We are planning to have the same keynote talk by Prof. Jie Wu at APDCM2021.
  • Speaker: Jie Wu, Temple University
  • Title: Mobile Blockchain Mining Games in Computation Offloading
  • Abstract: Computation offloading is considered as a viable solution to blockchain mining in mobile environments. In this talk, we present a two-layer computation offloading paradigm that includes two types of service provider (SP): an edge computing service provider and a cloud computing service provider. We formulate a multi-leader multi-follower Stackelberg game among SPs (as leaders) and miners (as followers) to address the price-based resource management problem. We also study the hierarchical game by including a miner subgame formulated as a classical Nash equilibrium problem.
  • Spealer Biography: Professor Jie Wu is the Director of the Center for Networked Computing and Laura H. Carnell professor at Temple University. He also serves as the Director of International Affairs at College of Science and Technology. He served as Chair of Department of Computer and Information Sciences from the summer of 2009 to the summer of 2016 and Associate Vice Provost for International Affairs from the fall of 2015 to the summer of 2017. Prior to joining Temple University, he was a program director at the National Science Foundation and was a 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. He regularly publishes in scholarly journals, conference proceedings, and books. He serves on several editorial boards, including IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Service Computing, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, and Journal of Computer Science and Technology. He was general co-chair for IEEE MASS 2006, IEEE IPDPS 2008, IEEE ICDCS 2013, ACM MobiHoc 2014, ICPP 2016, and IEEE CNS 2016, as well as program cochair 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). He is a Fellow of the AAAS and a Fellow of the IEEE. He is the recipient of the 2011 China Computer Federation (CCF) Overseas Outstanding Achievement Award.

Best/Outstanding Paper Award

We will select the Best/Outstanding papers and the award shields will be given to the authors. Please see history for Best/Outstanding papers in past editions.

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.
