ICA3PP 2017 is the 17th in this series of conferences started in 1995 that are devoted to algorithms and architectures for parallel processing. ICA3PP is now recognized as the main regular event of the world that is covering the many dimensions of parallel algorithms and architectures, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial components and systems. As applications of computing systems have permeated in every aspects of daily life, the power of computing system has become increasingly critical. This conference provides a forum for academics and practitioners from countries around the world to exchange ideas for improving the efficiency, performance, reliability, security and interoperability of computing systems and applications.

Following the traditions of the previous successful ICA3PP conferences held in Hangzhou, Brisbane, Singapore, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Beijing, Cyprus, Taipei, Busan, Melbourne, Fukuoka, Vietri sul Mare, Dalian,Japan, Zhangjiajie, and Granada, ICA3PP 2017 will be held in Helsinki, Finland. The objective of ICA3PP 2017 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and governments to advance the theories and technologies in parallel and distributed computing. ICA3PP 2017 will focus on two broad areas of parallel and distributed computing, i.e., architectures, algorithms and networks, and systems and applications. The conference of ICA3PP 2017 is co-organized by Aalto University, Finland and Xidian University, China.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Scope and Interests

Track 1: Parallel and Distributed Architectures
Track 2: Software Systems and Programming Models
Track 3: Distributed and Network-based Computing
Track 4: Big Data and its Applications
Track 5: Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
Track 6: Applications of Parallel and Distributed Computing
Track 7: Service Dependability and Security in Distributed and Parallel Systems
Track 8: Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical-Social Computing
Track 9: Performance Modeling and Evaluation

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 14 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in Springer LNCS Format with Portable Document Format (.pdf). Please submit your paper via https://research.comnet.aalto.fi/ICA3PP2017/submit.html

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. The conference proceeding will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS, EI indexed). Excellent Papers will be recommended to high-quality journal special issues as below (SCI/SCIE indexed).
