Contributed papers are sought in all areas of parallel algorithms and architectures, encompassing any computation system that can perform multiple operations or tasks simultaneously. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- parallel and distributed algorithms - parallel and distributed data structures - green computing & 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 - supercomputing architecture and computing - transactional memory hardware and software - 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
Conference presentations will have two formats:
Regular presentations will be allotted a 25-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.
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.
Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to submit their manuscript electronically. To submit electronically, visit http://www.spaa-conference.org for instructions. This is the preferred method of submission. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the program chair Kunal Agrawal at [log in to unmask] to receive instructions on how to proceed.
Submissions for regular presentations should include an introduction understandable to a nonspecialist including motivation and previous work, and a technical exposition directed to a specialist. A submission should not exceed 10 double-column pages in 9-point font, including figures, tables, 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 should be no longer than two double-column pages in 9-point font.
There will be a rebuttal period in which the authors can point out misunderstandings or comment on critical questions that PC members may have. The rebuttal period will take place on March 4-5.
