The IASTED International Conference on
~PDCN 2005~
as part of the Twenty-Third IASTED International Multi-Conference on

February 15-17, 2005
Innsbruck, Austria

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems

World Modelling and Simulation Forum – WMSF

PDCN began as a symposium of the IASTED International Conference on AI (Applied Informatics). However, with the increasing popularity of this conference, it became necessary to create four separate conferences beginning in 2004, of which PDCN is one. This conference will act as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, parallel and distributed computing and networks. It will be an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

PDCN 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2005)
Software Engineering (SE 2005)
Databases and Applications (DBA 2005)
Modelling, Identification, and Control (MIC 2005)
Biomedical Engineering (BioMed 2005)

As the capital of the Austrian region of Tyrol, Innsbruck is the only major city in the European Alps and is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. As both a recreational and historical center, Innsbruck offers an unrivalled combination of culture, history, and natural beauty. Twice host to the Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck’s twenty-five Resort Villages blend in perfectly with the alpine environment and offer world-class facilities for skiing, tobogganing, and snowboarding, as well as countless summer recreation activities, amidst breathtaking landscapes. Although Innsbruck is a sophisticated urban center, it has also maintained its historical flavour and boasts an abundance of architectural and art treasures. The city also hosts a multitude of international cultural and musical events throughout the year.

Innsbruck, with its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, offers something for every visitor. PDCN 2005 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the prestigious 'Best Conference Center in Europe Award’ in 2000.
