19th International Conference on
Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems

September 20-22, 2006

Hilton San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, California USA

Sponsored by the International Society for Computers and Their Applications (ISCA)

PDCS-2006 is a major forum to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in all areas of Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems, their modeling and simulation, design, use and performance, and their impact. The program committee is soliciting papers describing original unpublished research in all areas of parallel processing and distributed computing systems, including theoretical, experimental, and commercial works. Topics include, but not limited to, the following research areas:

- 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 & Load Sharing
- Fault Tolerance and Replication Designs
- Security, Naming, and Authentication
- Resource Allocation and Management
- Distributed Query Processing and Information Retrieval
- Network Management Algorithms & Computer Networks Protocols
- Real-Time & Embedded Distributed Algorithms & Systems

3. Parallel and Distributed Systems Software

- Languages, Compilers and Operating Systems
- Libraries and Programming Environments
- Message Passing and Distributed Shared Memory Paradigms
- Software Development, Services, Support, and Tools
- Middleware for Parallel and Distributed Computing
- Benchmarking and Measurements

Submission Procedures:

A full paper (not to exceed 15 double-spaced pages), including title, author's name(s), affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and e-mail of the principal author should reach the Program Chair on or before April 7, 2006. Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission (PDF format only) to: gdp@utk.edu. Please use ‘PDCS-2006 Submission’ in the subject line of your email. The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings, which will be a maximum of 6 pages (+2 pages with additional page charges) in ISCA double-column format. (see http://www.isca-hq.org/sample-isca-manuscript-format.pdf)

Submit your manuscript before April 7 to: gdp@utk. edu (Dr. Gregory Peterson, Program Chair).
