Call for parallel and distributed processing conference papers:

- By Barbara French, Tekrati -
With the 2003 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications February 17 call-for-papers deadline approaching, Rajat P. Garg, Ph.D. with Sun Microsystems, encourages the open source community to file submissions and offers some suggested topics. You are invited to submit a draft paper of about 5 pages and/or a proposal to organize a technical session/workshop. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

We queried Rajat for suggested Linux topics of particular interest and fit with this year's conference. Here's what he suggested via an email:

  • Parallelizing compilers on Linux systems
  • Performance analysis tools for parallel applications on Linux systems
  • Experiences of cluster computing in scientific and business applications, such as Geophysics, Electronic Design, Bioinformatics and others
  • Development, performance optimization, porting and benchmarking of highly parallel applications on Linux systems
  • Operating system and runtime support for parallel computing in Linux
  • Parallel programming using OpenMP and/or MPI on Linux systems

To reiterate, these are suggestions to help mobilize open source community interest and action. Do not interpret these as limitations. Visit the PDPTA'03 site for submission guidelines, contacts and dates.

It is planned to add other related conferences, symposiums, and workshops to be held simultaneously (same location and dates), creating an international multiconference in computer science. Each conference will have its own proceedings and technical/research sessions.

The 2003 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'03) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 23 - 26, 2003. The PDPTA'03 Conference will be held simultaneously with a number of other international conferences and workshops (CISST'03, IC-AI'03, IC'03, METMBS'03, CIC'03, ...)

A number of university faculty members and their staff in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference Division, Las Vegas ) are organizing the conference. The conference will be sponsored by World Academy of Sciences and co-sponsored by Computer Science Research, Education & Applications Press (CSREA: USA Federal EIN # 58-2171953) together with research centers, international associations, international research groups and, developers of high-performance machines and systems.

The 2002 International Multiconference in Computer Science attracted over 1,550 participants from over 72 countries. Organizers hope that PDPTA'03 will also have a strong international flavor.
