ISPA-15 (13th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed
Processing with Applications) is a forum for presenting leading work on
parallel and distributed computing and networking, including architecture,
compilers, runtime systems, applications, reliability, security, parallel
programming models and much more.  During the symposium, scientists and
engineers in both academia and industry are invited to present their work on
concurrent and parallel systems (multicore, multithreaded, heterogeneous,
clustered systems, distributed systems, grids, clouds, and large scale


The 13th ISPA follows the tradition of previous successful ISPA conferences
in the years from 2003 to 2014 in Asia, Europe, Australia and North America.
It will feature sessions of regular presentations, workshops, tutorials and
keynote speeches. ISPA-15 is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on
Scalable Computing (TCSC) and the IEEE Computer Society. ISPA-15 is
particularly interested in research addressing heterogeneous computing with
the use of accelerators, mobile computing, approximate computing, tools and
methodologies to improve the quality of parallel programming and applying
generic computing approaches to networks, in particular Software Defined
networking and its applications.

Submission Guidelines


Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 8 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in
IEEE Computer Society proceedings format with Portable Document Format
(.pdf). Please submit your paper at


Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present
the work. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE CPS
Proceedings. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further
revision, will be recommended to high quality international journals.
