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 Sixteenth Euromicro International Conference on
Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing aims at providing 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:

· Network-based Computing: web computing, cluster computing, mobile
agents, distributed web services, security in distributed systems.
· Parallel Computer Systems: massively parallel machines, high
networks, network-on-chip systems, embedded parallel and distributed
systems, fault-tolerance, memory organization, parallel I/O.
· Models and Tools for Parallel Programming Environments: performance
prediction and analysis, simulation, knowledge-based parallel program
development, visualization tools.
· Advanced Applications: computations over irregular domains,
combinatorial optimization, multi models and multi disciplinary
applications, numerical applications with multi-level parallelism, real
time distributed applications, distributed business applications.
· Languages, Compilers and Runtime Support Systems: task and data
languages, functional and logic languages, object-oriented languages,
dependability issues, scheduling and load balancing, task and object
migration, emerging languages, compilers for multicore architecture and
for emerging architecture, virtualization for HPC,
measurement and monitoring.
· Global computing: grid computing, P2P computing, desktop grids,
computational grids, data grids, semantic grids, grids middleware, data
consistency in P2P.

Paper submission

Prospective authors can submit a paper via the conference site either to
the Conference Main Track or to the following workshops devoted
specifically to hot topics.

Security in Distributed Systems
Chairman : I. Kotenko (St Petersburg Institute for Informatics and
Automation, RU)

Delay Tolerant Networks
Chairman : S. Chaumette (LABRI, FR)

Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Peer-to-Peer Environments.
Chairman: A. Binzenhoefer and P. Tran-Gia (University of Wurzburg, DE)

Next Generation of Web Computing
Chairman: K. Kloeckner (Fraunhofer Institute, DE)

Work in Progress
Chairman: K. E. Grosspietsch, K. Kloeckner (Fraunhofer Institute, DE)

Authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000
words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract before
July 15, 2007. To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process,
the first page of the paper should contain only the title and
abstract and names of authors must not appear in the Reference
Notification of acceptance: October 1st, 2007
Camera-ready submissions: October 31st, 2007

Details on submission of papers will be soon 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.

A special session devoted to work in progress will
be also organized. Selected papers will not be published in the
Conference Proceedings but will appear in a separate document.
Details will be avalaible soon on the Conferece site.
