     SPAA 2008 Final 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 

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 presentation. 

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: 

       ** EXTENDED ** JANUARY 27, 2008, 11:59pm EST for REGULAR papers

       February 1, 2008, 12pm EST for brief announcements and posters.

  Notification:       March 26th, 2008.
  Camera-ready copy:  April 15th, 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.
