14th Euromicro Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network based

Montbéliard-Sochaux - France- February 15-17 2006


Parallel and Distributed Processing has undergone impressive change
over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly
become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a
result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies
with other rapidly evolving technologies such as telecommunications
and multimedia. It is of paramount importance to review and assess
these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements
in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing,
from industry and the scientific community. The Fourteenth Euromicro
Conference aims to provide a forum for the presentation of these
and other issues through original research presentations and to
facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest
technical level.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

. Distributed Systems:
Distributed Databases, distributed OO systems,
distributed operating systems, heterogeneous distributed systems,
distributed algorithms, distributed shared memory systems.

. Network-based Computing:
web computing, cluster computing, computational grids,
data grids, semantic grid, mobile agents,
distributed web services, security in distributed systems.

. Parallel Computer Systems:
massively parallel machines, interconnection networks, embedded
parallel and distributed systems, fault-tolerance, memory
organization, support for parallel I/O.

. Models and Tools for Parallel Programming Environments:
performance prediction and analysis, simulation,
knowledge-based parallel program development, visualization tools.

. Advanced Applications:
multi-disciplinary applications, parallel databases,
computations over irregular domains, numerical applications with
multi-level parallelism, real time distributed applications,
distributed business applications.

. Languages, Compilers and Runtime Support Systems:
task and data parallel languages, functional and logic languages,
object-oriented languages, dependability issues, scheduling and
load balancing, task and object migration.

In addition, a number of special sessions will address hot topics


Submission of papers:

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000
words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract.

To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the
paper should contain only the title and abstract.

Details for submission of papers are available at

Proceedings will be published by IEEE CS. Best papers will be
selected for a special issue of Journal of Systems Architecture.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the
paper at the Conference.

Important dates:
Closing date for submissions May 31st, 2005
Acceptance notification October 1st, 2005
Camera-ready version October 31st, 2005


General Information

The venue of the Workshop is Montbéliard, which lies at the east of
France, in the region of Franche-Comté near Switzerland. Between the
Vosges and the Jura, the City of Princes blossoms in a verdant landscape.
Montbéliard has inherited from the Dukes of Wurtember a great
architectural heritage among others with the castle. Skiing is possible
not far away from Montbéliard either in the Vosges or in the Jura.
