ISPA-15 (13th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed
Processing with Applications) is a forum for presenting leading work on
parallel and distributed computing and networking, including architecture,
compilers, runtime systems, applications, reliability, security, parallel
programming models and much more. During the symposium, scientists and
engineers in both academia and industry are invited to present their work
on concurrent and parallel systems (multicore, multithreaded,
heterogeneous, clustered systems, distributed systems, grids, clouds, and
large scale machines).

The 13th ISPA follows the tradition of previous successful ISPA conferences
in the years from 2003 to 2014 in Asia, Europe, Australia and North
America. It will feature sessions of regular presentations, workshops,
tutorials and keynote speeches. ISPA-15 is sponsored by the IEEE Technical
Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and the IEEE Computer Society.
ISPA-15 is particularly interested in research addressing heterogeneous
computing with the use of accelerators, mobile computing, approximate
computing, tools and methodologies to improve the quality of parallel
programming and applying generic computing approaches to networks, in
particular Software Defined networking and its applications.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to

Base Technologies and Tools Track

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 8 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in
IEEE Computer Society proceedings format with Portable Document Format
(.pdf). Please submit your paper at

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present
the work. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE CPS
Proceedings. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after
further revision, will be recommended to high quality international
