First Call for Papers


October 13-17, 2003
Ljubljana, Slovenia

The 2nd ISPDC will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia and will be organized within the framework of the IS'2003 Multiconference (http://ai.ijs.si/is/is2003). It will follow the first ISPDC that took place in Iasi, Romania, in July, 2001 (see http://www.infoiasi.ro/~ispdc/). An important feature of this Symposium was the high quality of presented material and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere which encouraged the exchange of ideas. These will be our goals also this year. Due to the fact that the symposium will be organized as one of eight events it will help establishing links with researchers in other fields. We therefore hope that the second meeting will be as successful as the first.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers (not being considered for presentation or publication elsewhere) describing theoretical and/or experimental research. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following aspects of parallel and/or distributed computing:

  • algorithms, models and formal verification

  • software agents and multi-agent systems

  • programming paradigms and tools

  • resource discovery and management

  • task and communication scheduling

  • performance management

  • cluster, grid and heterogeneous computing

  • mobile and ubiquitous computing and systems

  • parallel, distributed and mobile databases

  • peer-to-peer and web computing and services

  • adaptive computing

  • web distributed computing

  • real-time distributed systems

  • security

  • fault tolerance

  • scientific computing and large-scale simulations

  • applications and case studies

The corresponding author is requested to include in a cover letter: (1) complete postal address; (2) e-mail address; and (3) Phone/fax numbers. Only electronic submissions in the PDF, PS, and DOC format are accepted. The files should be emailed to marcin@cs.okstate.edu. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 referees of the international Program Committee. All accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings(additional information will be forthcoming; including publisher name, paper length and the detailed formatting instructions).
