[DMANET] PDP 2018 - Call for Papers


PDP 2018 - Call for Papers -


Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone
impressive changes over recent years. New architectures, advanced
programming models, improved efficiency and novel application
domains have rapidly become the central focus of this discipline.

These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel
and distributed computational paradigms with other rapidly evolving
technologies in different disciplines. It is of paramount importance
to review and assess these new developments in relation with the recent
research achievements in the different areas of parallel and distributed
computing, considering both the industrial and scientific point of view.

PDP 2018 will provide a forum for the discusssion of these and other issues
through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of
knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical and applicative level.

PDP 2018 will be held in Cambridge, UK, March 21-23, 2018.

* Important dates:

- Paper submission: 15 Sep, 2017

- Acceptance notification: 13 Oct, 2017

- Camera ready due: 17 Nov, 2017

- Conference: 21 - 23 Mar, 2018


* Submission of papers

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages
in the Conference proceedings format ( double-column, 10pt) to the
conference main track
through the EasyChair conference submission system
( The possibility
to submit a paper to a special session
will appear soon.

Double-blind review: the paper should not contain authors names and
affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own
work entries should be
substituted with the string "omitted for blind review".

Publication: All accepted papers will be included in the same volume,
published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper
Preparation and
Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of
acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and
present their papers at
the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE
explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus
ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of
