20th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models

APDCM2018, May 21, 2018
to be held in conjunction with

31st IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium
IPDPS May 21 – 25, 2018
JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA

[Call for Papers]
The past twenty years have seen a flurry of activity in the area of
parallel and distributed computing. In recent years, novel parallel
and distributed computational models have been proposed in the
literature, reflecting advances in new computational devices and
environments such as optical interconnects, programmable logic arrays,
networks of workstations, radio communications, mobile computing, DNA
computing, quantum computing, sensor networks etc. It is very
encouraging to note that the advent of these new models has lead to
significant advances in the resolution of various difficult problems
of practical interest.

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the
exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in
the field of the parallel and distributed computational models. The
workshop is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners
interested in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing taken
in an inclusive, rather than exclusive, sense. We are convinced that
the workshop atmosphere will be conducive to open and mutually
beneficial exchanges of ideas between the participants.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
Models of Parallel and Distributed Computing: Radio communication
models, Mobile computing models, Sensor network models,
Hardware-specific models, FPGA models, Systolic arrays and cellular
automata, peer-to-peer models, Biologically-based computing models,
Quantum models, Reconfigurable models, Optical models, CUDA, OpenCL,
GPU computing models, BSP and LogP models, PGAS model

Algorithms and Applications: Geometric and graph algorithms,
Combinatorial algorithms, Randomized and approximation techniques,
Numerical algorithms, Network algorithms, Localized algorithms,
Distributed algorithms, Image processing, High-performance computing,
GPU applications, MapReduce

Practical Aspects: Architectural and implementation issues,
Performance analysis and simulation, MPI, Multi-core processors,
Programmable logic arrays, GPGPU, Design of network protocols,
Embedded systems, Cloud computing, Cluster Computing, Development
tools, Fault tolerance, Security Issues, Big data analysis
