CALL FOR PAPERS -- Special Session on Massively Parallel Processing at the 9th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models -- IPDPS

2007 International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium

Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models
Special Session on Massively Parallel Processing

*** Submission Deadline December 4th 2006 ***

As part of the Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computing
Models (APDCM), the aim of this special session is to focus on computer
systems that can scale to many thousands of processing elements and are used
to solve a single problem. The focus is on identifying new and novel ideas
rather than proving incremental advances. By concurrently exploring
architecture, programming models, algorithms and applications, the session
seeks to advance the state-of-the-art of Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)
systems.  Following the usual IPDPS practice, all MPP papers will be
published in the Proceedings of the IEEE/ACM International Parallel and
Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS).

Topics of Interest:
The topics of interest to this special session are:

(+)  Architectures and Experimental Systems: the use of increased
parallelism on a single chip (MPP on a chip), the coordination and
communication between massive numbers of processing elements, the use of
processors in memory (PIMS), and parallelism in emerging technologies.

(+)  Large-scale Computing: the utilization of MPPs for large-scale
computing, achieving peta-scale levels of processing, use of heterogeneous
processing capabilities.

(+)  Parallelism, Programming Models and Algorithms: exploiting parallelism
for MPP systems, novel algorithms, empirical and simulation performance
evaluation studies of applications, metrics and models to explore MPP
systems, improvements in programmability or productivity.

Results of both theoretical and practical significance will be considered.

Submission Guidelines:
Papers should not exceed eight single-space pages (including figures, tables
and references) using a 12-point on 8�x11-inch pages. Submissions should be
made electronically in either PostScript of PDF format to Darren Kerbyson
(djk@lanl.gov) to whom informal enquiries can also be made. Please include
your contact information with the paper submission. Submissions will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance,
quality of presentation and appropriateness for the special session.
Submitted papers should not have appeared in, or be under consideration for,
any other workshop, conference, or journal.
