   Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
   uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
   Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in
   either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space,
   font size of 10 to 12).  All reasonable typesetting formats are
   acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
   follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for

   The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
   to 7 (IEEE style) pages.  Papers must not have been previously
   published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.  The
   first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
   name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
   The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
   and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
   content of the paper.  Finally, the name of the conference (PDPTA)
   must be mentioned on the first page.

   Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
   impact, and soundness.  Each paper will be refereed by two experts
   in the field who are independent of the conference program
   The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
   the program committee who will recommend a decision to the co-
   The co-chairs will make the final decision.  Lastly, the Camera-
   papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.

   (hra@cs.uga.edu) the following information: Name, affiliation
   and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
   biography together with research interests and the name of the
   conference (PDPTA) offering to help with.
   Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
   are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
   practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
   laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
   departments, deans and provosts.


   PDPTA'09 is an annual research conference about parallel and
   distributed processing techniques and applications.  It is being
   held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other
   conferences (WORLDCOMP'09).  WORLDCOMP is the largest annual
   gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
   engineering and applied computing.

   The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research
   into a coordinated meeting held in a common place at a common time.
   The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a
   of research areas that interact.  The model used facilitates
   communication among researchers from all over the world in
   fields of computer science, computer engineering and applied
   computing.  Both inward research (core areas of computer science
   engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-
   and applications) will be covered during the event.

   PDPTA'09 and WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research
   keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel
   and poster presentations.  In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
   speakers included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California,
   Berkeley); Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H.
   (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
   Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry
   (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
   Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X
   Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
   many other distinguished speakers.


   The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
   Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels).  This is
   a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
   rooms.  It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle
   service to and from the airport.  This hotel has many recreational
   attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy
   River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
   a number of restaurants, ...  The negotiated room rate for
   conference attendees is very reasonable.  The hotel is within
   walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
   destinations, Golf courses, ...)
