- Interconnection Networks
- Application-Specific Parallel Architectures
- Architectural Support for Fine-Grain Parallelism
- Architectures for Distributed and Enterprise Systems
- Reconfigurable Computing
- Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing
- Network Processors and Sensor Networks
- Peer-to-Peer Networks
- Cluster and Grid Computing

2. Parallel and Distributed Algorithms

- Partitioning, Mapping, and Scheduling
- Routing, Communication, and Synchronization Techniques
- Load Balancing and Load Sharing
- Fault Tolerance and Replication Designs
- Security, Naming, and Authentication
- Resource Allocation and Management
- Distributed Query Processing and Information Retrieval
- Reliable Distributed Computing
- Network Management Algorithms & Computer Networks Protocols
- Real-Time & Embedded Distributed Algorithms & Systems

3. Parallel and Distributed Systems Software
