ICA3PP 2017 is the 17th in this series of conferences started in 1995 that
are devoted to algorithms and architectures for parallel processing. ICA3PP
is now recognized as the main regular event of the world that is covering
the many dimensions of parallel algorithms and architectures, encompassing
fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and
commercial components and systems. As applications of computing systems
have permeated in every aspects of daily life, the power of computing
system has become increasingly critical. This conference provides a forum
for academics and practitioners from countries around the world to exchange
ideas for improving the efficiency, performance, reliability, security and
interoperability of computing systems and applications.

Following the traditions of the previous successful ICA3PP conferences held
in Hangzhou, Brisbane, Singapore, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Beijing, Cyprus,
Taipei, Busan, Melbourne, Fukuoka, Vietri sul Mare, Dalian,Japan,
Zhangjiajie, and Granada, ICA3PP 2017 will be held in Helsinki, Finland.
The objective of ICA3PP 2017 is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and governments to advance the
theories and technologies in parallel and distributed computing. ICA3PP
2017 will focus on two broad areas of parallel and distributed computing,
i.e., architectures, algorithms and networks, and systems and applications.
The conference of ICA3PP 2017 is co-organized by Aalto University, Finland
and Xidian University, China.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Scope and Interests

Track 1: Parallel and Distributed Architectures
Track 2: Software Systems and Programming Models
Track 3: Distributed and Network-based Computing
Track 4: Big Data and its Applications
Track 5: Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
Track 6: Applications of Parallel and Distributed Computing
Track 7: Service Dependability and Security in Distributed and Parallel
Track 8: Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical-Social Computing
Track 9: Performance Modeling and Evaluation

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 14 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in
Springer LNCS Format with Portable Document Format (.pdf). Please submit
your paper via

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. The conference proceeding will be published by Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS, EI indexed). Excellent Papers will be
recommended to high-quality journal special issues as below (SCI/SCIE

1. Special Issue on IEEE Access (SCI indexed, Impact Factor: 1.27)
