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.

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Prospective authors are urged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, with a maximum length of 10 pages for REGULAR papers and 4 pages for SHORT papers, employing the Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. Additionally, we enthusiastically welcome comprehensive survey papers addressing timely topics. Abstracts must be registered via EasyChair by February 6 (23:59 PM UTC). Submission of an abstract is mandatory, as reviewers are selected based on these abstracts. Following abstract registration, the PDF of the paper must be submitted by February 11 (23:59 PM UTC). It is permissible to update both the abstract and the PDF at any time prior to the specified deadlines.

Best/Outstanding Paper Award

We will select the Best/Outstanding papers. 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.

Keynote Talk

  • Speaker: Hiroki Ohtsuji, Fujitsu Ltd.
  • Title: Transitioning High-Performance Computing Systems through Dynamic Scheduling and Resource Allocation
  • Abstract: This keynote presentation focuses on the current challenges in High-Performance Computing systems, such as the long waiting times and low resource utilization incurred by batch queue systems, and the underutilization of GPUs due to their fixed allocation. The speaker will introduce two solutions that address these issues: time-sliced execution and the AI computing broker. Time-sliced execution enables instant execution of parallel applications on HPC systems by eliminating the idle nodes reserved by the traditional batch scheduling mechanism. The AI computing broker enhances GPU utilization by dynamically allocating GPUs only during necessary stages of an application's execution. This talk aims to introduce these new technologies for the usability of high-performance computing systems.
  • Bio: Hiroki Ohtsuji earned his Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. from the University of Tsukuba in 2011, 2013, and 2016 respectively. Afterwards, he joined Fujitsu Research. His research interests include high-performance storage systems, high-speed networks, scheduling systems, and system software for large-scale computing systems.
