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Prospective authors are encouraged to submit an electronic version of original, unpublished manuscripts, not to exceed 10 pages for REGULAR papers and 4 pages for SHORT papers using Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. We also welcome comprehensive survey papers on timely topics. Abstracts must be registered through EasyChair by February 1, 2023 (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 5, 2023 (23:59 in UTC). You can update the abstract and the PDF any time before the due dates.

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: Professor Jie Wu, Temple University
  • Title: On the Cost-Optimal Parallel Solution of the Majority Problem
  • Abstract: The majority problem can be stated as follows: there is a collection of accounts. The only way to “read” these cards is through one or more two-input “equivalence testers”. Each tester accepts two cards and outputs “yes” if two input cards correspond to the same bank account or “no” if they do not. The objective of the majorityf tests is to determine if more than n/2 cards account and then find these cards. We first review two sequential solutions, including the Boyer-Moore optimal linear solution complexity of (n)). Then we introduce the optimal O(n)). elimination solution together with a special structure to support a cost-optimal parallel solution that solves the problem in O(log n) using O(n / log n) processors (i.e., testers). That is, this solution matches the optimal sequential solution with O(n) operations.
