PDCCS-2009 is a major forum to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in all areas of Parallel and Distributed Computing and Communication Systems, their modeling, simulation, design, use, performance, and impact.
The program committee is soliciting papers describing original unpublished research in all of these topic areas, including theoretical, experimental, and commercial works. The conference will also include a BEST PAPER AWARD for a paper presented at the conference. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following research areas:

1. Parallel Architectures and Systems
Message passing and shared memory systems; General-purpose and special-purpose architectures; Multi-
thread/Multi-core; Tightly-coupled systems, clusters, Grid; Reconfigurable systems; Interconnection networks; I/O and storage systems; Design issues (low power, scalability, etc.)

2. Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
Mapping, scheduling, load balancing; Routing, communication, synchronization; Fault tolerance; Security; Query processing

3. Parallel and Distributed Systems Software
Languages, compilers, OS; Programming environments and tools; Real-time systems; Resource management and allocations; Middleware; Data mining; Performance modeling and evaluation

4. Multimedia and Service Networking
Multimedia communications and services; Real-time networking; Quality-of-Service; Performance modeling; Networked real-time embedded systems; Services on-demand

5. Parallel and Distributed Applications
Scientific computing; Large-scale simulation and optimization; Multimedia computing; Grid and Internet applications; Mobile computing; Computational biology, chemistry, geometry, physics; Digital signal and image processing; Sensor networks applications

6. Communication Systems
