Call for Paper
23rd Euromicro International Conference on 
Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing (PDP 2015) 
March 4-6, 2015, Turku, Finland
General Scope
Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing, from industry and the scientific community. PDP 2015 will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level. 
Topics of Interest 
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
. Parallel Computing: massively parallel machines; embedded parallel and distributed systems; multi- and many-core systems; GPU and FPGA based parallel systems; parallel I/O; memory organisation.
. Distributed and Network-based Computing: Cluster, Grid, Web and Cloud computing; mobile computing; interconnection networks.
. Big Data: large scale data processing; distributed databases and archives; large scale data management; metadata; data intensive applications.
. Models and Tools: programming languages and environments; runtime support systems; performance prediction and analysis; simulation of parallel and distributed systems.
. Systems and Architectures: novel system architectures; high data throughput architectures; service-oriented architectures; heterogeneous systems; shared-memory and message-passing systems; middleware and distributed operating systems; dependability and survivability; resource management. 
. Advanced Algorithms and Applications: distributed algorithms; multi-disciplinary applications; computations over irregular domains; numerical applications with multi-level parallelism; real-time distributed applications.
Special Sessions
The following special sessions will be organized within the conference:
. High Performance Computing in Modelling and Simulation (HPCMS)
. On-Chip Parallel and Network-Based Systems (OCPNBS)
. Cloud Computing on Infrastructure as a Service and its Applications (CCISA)
. System Management for Energy Efficient Parallel Applications and Platforms
. Energy-Aware Computing
. Security in Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing (SPDNS)
. Advances in High-Performance Bioinformatics, Systems and Synthetic Biology
. GPU Computing and Hybrid Computing
. Formal Approaches to Parallel and Distributed Systems (4PAD)
. Parallel Computing for Neural System (PaCNeS)
. Multi-Core and Many-Core systems for EMbedded Computing (MC3)
. e-Infrastructures for Hydro Meteorological Research (eInfra4HMR)
Paper Submission
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track or to Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2015) with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session. 

Double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review".

Publication: All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Conference proceedings will be indexed, among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
Registration: Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference.
