Call for Workshops/Tutorials proposals

The PDCAT 2012 Organizing Committee invites workshop/tutorial
proposals for
PDCAT 2012 to be held in Beijing, China, in December 2012.

Workshop/tutorial proposals are invited on specific aspects of
parallel and distributed computing, particularly relating to the
subject areas indicated by the topics below. We encourage workshops/
tutorials which will discuss fundamental research issues driven by
academic interests or more applied industrial or commercial concerns.
The format of the workshop/tutorial will be determined by the
organizers. Workshops/tutorials can vary in length from a half day to
a full day. Having more than one co-organizer for a workshop/tutorial
is strongly advised.

Workshop proceedings will be published as part of the PDCAT 2012
proceedings. So, it is very important that high quality workshops are
accepted, and that workshop chairs observe strict quality strandards
in the selection of papers for their events.

Workshops/tutorials attendees should register to the main conference.

Important Dates and Proposal Submission


Workshop/tutorial proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail
