Welcome to the 19th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC 2020). The conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland, from July 5 to July 8 2020. The conference will focus on original research which advances the state of the art in the field of Parallel and Distributed Computing paradigms and applications. The event will include presentations of invited talks, contributed papers, tutorials, discovery challenge and an industrial track. Parallel and Distributed Computing is today a hot topic in science, engineering and society. It develops new theoretical and practical methods for the modeling, design, analysis, evaluation and programming of future parallel/ distributed computing systems including relevant applications.
We kindly invite original contributions to the 19th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing, aiming in bringing together researchers, engineers, and practitioners working on new algorithms, architectures and design methods for parallel and distributed computing at different stages of the hardware platform, system software and application program development. The conference scope will be focused on but not limited to the following topics:
Applications of parallel and distributed systems: science and engineering; data warehousing; social networks; management of big data; embedded networking systems; cloud and grid computing; mobile systems; web-based and multimedia systems; knowledge-based systems; biomedical applications; resource management including green computing.
Parallel and distributed system architecture: instruction-level and thread-level parallelism; distributed system control and performance issues; power aware design; network on chip and system on chip architectures; global application state aware design; reconfigurable systems; network architecture issues; parallel I/O and storage design; embedded systems; dedicated architectures including modular design, graphics and signal processors, media accelerators; intelligent architectural design.
Programming and developments tools: parallel and multicore programming; runtime systems and parallel virtual machines; multi-threaded operating systems; time-critical parallel embedded systems, middleware for grids, clouds and data centers; Internet programming tools, performance modeling and evaluation tools.
Algorithm design: parallel numerical, combinatorial and randomized algorithms; algorithms for heterogeneous systems or systems of systems; communication protocols, multicasting and interconnect algorithms; data-intensive parallel algorithms; scalability of algorithms and data structures; networking reconfiguration and mobile computing algorithms; performance modeling and optimization; scheduling and load balancing algorithms; efficient security and safety algorithms.
