        ******       11th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON       ******

Krakow, Poland,
September 6-9, 2015

The PPAM 2015 conference, eleventh in a series, will cover topics in
parallel and distributed computing, 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 applications, including big data problems.

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences
series. Next year the PPAM conference will take place in beautiful
Krakow, the old capital of Poland, a major national academic, cultural
and artistic centre.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Parallel/distributed architectures, enabling technologies
* Cluster and cloud computing
* Multi-core and many-core parallel computing
* GPU computing
* Heterogeneous/hybrid computing and accelerators
* 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,
   including big data applications
* Large-scale social network analysis

--- TUTORIALS (preliminary list) ---

"Scientific Computing with GPUs"  by Dominik Goeddeke and Manuel Ujaldon
"Parallel Computing in Java"      by Piotr Bala team
"Advanced Scientific Visualization" by ICM, Warsaw University

The first day of PPAM 2015 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 26, 2015. 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 2015 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, 2015.


The authors of the best papers selected by the Program Committee will be
invited to submit extended versions of their work to special issues of
the following journals: Concurrency and Computation: Practice and
Experience, and International Journal of High Performance Computing
