AusPDC 2022 will be held online in conjunction with Australasian Computer
Science Week (ACSW 2022), 14 - 18 February 2022 (http://acsw.core.edu.au/)

In 2010, AusGrid event was broadened to include all aspects of parallel and
distributed computing and hence was called as Australasian Symposium on
Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC). Following a couple of
successful events, it comes to the 20th in 2022 in the series. In both New
Zealand and Australia parallel and distributed computing has been
recognised as strategic technologies for driving their moves towards
knowledge economies. The symposium is primarily targeted at researchers
from Australia and New Zealand, however, in the spirit of parallel and
distributed computing, which aims to enable collaboration of distributed
virtual organizations, and also the conference being held online this year,
we encourage papers and participation from international researchers.
