PDP 2018 - Second Call for Papers - Deadline Postponed - http://www.pdp2018.org <http://www.pdp2018.org/> 


Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone 
impressive changes over recent years. New architectures, advanced 
programming models, improved efficiency and novel application 
domains have rapidly become the central focus of this discipline. 

These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel 
and distributed computational paradigms with other rapidly evolving 
technologies in different disciplines. It is of paramount importance 
to review and assess these new developments in relation with the recent 
research achievements in the different areas of parallel and distributed 
computing, considering both the industrial and scientific point of view. 

PDP 2018 will provide a forum for the discusssion of these and other issues 
through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of 
knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical and applicative level. 

PDP 2018 will be held in Cambridge, UK, March 21-23, 2018.

* Important dates: 

    - Paper submission: 3 Nov, 2017 

        - Acceptance notification: 1 Dic, 2017 

        - Camera ready due: 22 Dic, 2017 

    - Conference: 21 - 23 Mar, 2018 


* Submission of papers 

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format ( double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track 
through the EasyChair conference submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?confpdp2018 <http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?confpdp2018>). The possibility to submit a paper to a special session 
will appear soon. 

Double-blind 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 Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The       Final Paper Preparation and 
Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at 
the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of 

Special Issues: selected papers will be considered for a publication in a special issue of the journal "Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience", 
edited by Wiley. Further contacts with editors of other international journal are on-going to have more special issues for papers from the special sessions.
