SPAA 2011 Call for Papers


SPAA 2011 Call for Papers

23rd ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures

San Jose, California, USA
June 4-6, 2011

[Part of the 2011 Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC 2011)]


Contributed papers are sought in all areas of parallel algorithms and
architectures. SPAA defines the term "parallel" broadly, encompassing
any computational system that can perform multiple operations or tasks

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Parallel and Distributed Algorithms and Applications
- Parallel and Distributed Data Structures
- Green Computing and Power-Efficient Architectures
- Management of Massive Data Sets
- Parallel Complexity Theory
- Parallel and Distributed Architectures
- Multi-Core Architectures
- Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI
- Compilers and Tools for Concurrent Programming
- Supercomputer Architecture and Computing
- Transactional Memory Hardware and Software
- The Internet and the World Wide Web
- Game Theory and Collaborative Learning
- Routing and Information Dissemination
- Resource Management and Awareness
- Peer-to-Peer Systems
- Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks
- Robustness, Self-Stabilization, and Security
- Synergy of parallelism in algorithms, programming and architecture

Regular presentations will be allotted a 25-minute talk and up to 10
pages in the proceedings. This format is intended for contributions
reporting original research, submitted exclusively to this conference.

Brief announcements will be allotted a 10-minute talk and a 2-page
abstract in the proceedings. This format is a forum for brief
communications, which may be published later in other conferences.

Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award. The program
committee may decline to make this award or may split the award among
multiple papers.


Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to submit their
manuscript electronically. To submit electronically, visit for instructions. This
is the preferred method of submission. Authors unable to submit
electronically should contact the program chair Rajmohan Rajaraman at to receive instructions.

The cover page should include (1) title, (2) authors and affiliation,
(3) postal and email address of the contact author, (4) a brief abstract
describing the content of the paper, and (5) an indication if this is a
regular presentation or a brief announcement. If requested by the
authors, an extended abstract that is not selected for a regular
presentation will also be considered for the SPAA brief announcements
session. Such a request will not affect the consideration of the paper
for a regular presentation.

Submissions for regular presentations should include an introduction
understandable to a nonspecialist including motivation and previous
work, and a technical exposition directed to a specialist. A submission
should not exceed 10 printed pages in 11-point type or larger (excluding
cover, figures, and references). More details may be supplied in a
clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the program
committee. A submission for brief announcements should be no longer
than three pages using at least 11-point font.


Submission deadlines:
- Regular papers: January 12, 2011 11:59pm EST
- Brief Announcements: January 19, 2011, 11:59pm EST
