PPAM 2013

Warsaw, Poland,
September 8-11, 2013

The PPAM 2013 conference, tenth in a series, will cover topics in parallel
and distributed processing, including theory and applications, as well as
applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms, and software
tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization of modern
parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as on large-scale

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences series.
This year the jubilee PPAM conference will take place in Warsaw,
the capital and largest city of Poland, a major international tourist
destination and an important economic hub in Central Europe, known
as the "phoenix city" because it has survived many wars throughout
its history.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Parallel/distributed architectures, enabling technologies
- Cloud computing
- Multi-core and many-core parallel computing
- GPU computing
- Heterogeneous/hybrid computing and accelerators
- Cluster computing
- Parallel/distributed algorithms: numerical and non-numerical
- Scheduling, mapping, load balancing
- Performance analysis and prediction
- Performance issues on various types of parallel systems
- Autotuning: methods, tools, and applications
- Power and energy aspects of computation
- Parallel/distributed programming
- Tools and environments for parallel/distributed computing
- Security and dependability in parallel/distributed environments
- HPC numerical linear algebra
- HPC methods of solving differential equations
- Evolutionary computing, meta-heuristics and neural networks
- HPC interval analysis
- Applied Computing in mechanics, material processing, biology and
   medicine, physics, chemistry, business, environmental modeling, etc.
- Applications of parallel/distributed computing
- Methods and tools for parallel solution of large-scale problems
- Large-scale social network analysis

"Design and implementation of parallel algorithms for highly heterogeneous HPC
   platforms"  by Alexey Lastovetsky
"Node-level performance engineering"  by Georg Hager

The first day of PPAM 2013 is reserved for tutorials.

Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit full
papers (draft version, PDF file, together with abstract) using the online
submission system before April 21, 2013. Regular papers are not to exceed
10 pages (LNCS style). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis
of their scientific merit and relevance to the conference topics.
Abstracts of accepted papers will be available during the conference in
form of a brochure. Only papers presented at PPAM 2013 will be included
into the proceedings, which will be published after the conference
by Springer in the LNCS series. Full camera-ready versions of
accepted papers will be required by November 15, 2013.

The authors of the best papers selected by the Program Committee will be
invited to submit an extended version of their work to special issues of
the following  journals: Scientific Programming (IOS Press),  and Concurrency
and Computation: Practice and Experience (John Wiley & Sons Ltd.).
