experimental perspectives. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
- 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 papers:

A regular paper submission must report on original research that has not
been previously or concurrently published. Submitted manuscripts may not
exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages. The title page,
bibliography and designated figure pages (containing only figures) are
not counted toward the ten pages. All necessary details to substantiate
the claims of the paper should be included in a clearly marked appendix.
If desired, the authors can simply attach a copy of the full paper as an
appendix. Regular papers will be allotted up to 10 pages in the

Brief announcements:

SPAA also solicits brief announcements that raise issues of interest to
the SPAA community. Examples of good brief announcements include: work
in progress, announcement of tools/libraries, challenge problems posted
to the community, corrections to earlier results. Brief announcements
may also include smaller results of interest. Submitted manuscripts may
not exceed two (2) single-spaced double-column pages for brief
announcements. The title page, bibliography and designated figure pages
(containing only figures) are not counted toward the two pages.

Please indicate in the title of your manuscript whether this is a
regular paper or a brief announcement. All regular rejected papers
automatically will be considered for brief announcements. Titles of
regular papers which should not be considered for this option should
mention 'full paper only' after the title.

Submission details:

Manuscripts submitted for review must use a single-spaced double-column
format for 8.5x11-inch paper, use at least a 9-point font size, and have
reasonable margins and spacing throughout. See Regular papers
may not exceed ten (10) pages and brief announcements may not exceed two
(2) pages. Title page, bibliography, designated figure pages (containing
only figures) and the appendix do not count toward the limit. Visit this
link for submission details.


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.
