     SPAA 2008 Call for Papers

     20th ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures

     Munich, Germany
     June 14 - 16, 2008


This year we will celebrate 20 years of SPAA with a series of invited talks, a 
special track, and a poster session. 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 simultaneously.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Parallel and Distributed Algorithms and Applications
- Parallel and Distributed Data Structures
- 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

In addition to the above, papers are solicited for a special track on Hardware 
And Software Techniques For Multicore Machines (for more details, please 
check http://www.cs.jhu.edu/~spaa/2008/cfp-multicore.html ).

Regular presentations will be allotted a 20-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. 
Posters will be presented in two special poster sessions and will be allotted a 
1-page abstract in the proceedings. This format is another forum for brief 
communications, which may be published later in other conferences. 

The best regular paper will be given a best paper award.

Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to submit their manuscript 
electronically. To submit electronically, visit http://www.spaa-
conference.org/submission.html for instructions. This is the preferred method 
of submission. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the 
program chair Nir Shavit at [log in to unmask] 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, regular presentation for special track, a brief announcement, or 
a poster. 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 and the poster session. 
Such a request will not affect the consideration of the paper for a regular 

Submissions for regular  presentations including ones for the special track 
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 or the poster session should be no longer 
than 3 pages (excluding cover).


  Submission deadlines: 
       January 22nd, 2008, 12pm EST for regular papers
       February 1st, 2008, 12pm EST for brief announcements and posters.

  Notification:       March 22th, 2008.
  Camera-ready copy:  April 10th, 2008.

Papers submitted to STOC 08 or ISCA 08 can also be submitted to SPAA 08 by 
January 22, on the condition that they will be withdrawn from SPAA by the 
authors if accepted to one of the other conferences. Such a dual conditional 
submission should be clearly noted on the title page. This offer applies only to 
STOC 08 and ISCA 08 submissions.
