ParCo99 is the continuation of a series of international conferences on parallel computing started in 1983. The collected proceedings give an overview of the achievements in the Parallel Computing field over the last two decades of the 20th century. On the threshold to the next century ParCo99 aims to give a retrospective and a prospective view of parallel computing.
The scientific program consists of invited papers, contributed extensive and specialised papers. Extensive papers will be presented in parallel sessions with 20 minutes available per presentation. Specialised papers will be presented in interactive sessions through presentations and display material. An industrial session and an exhibition of equipment are planned. All papers will be refereed for acceptance for publication in the proceedings.
Extended abstracts of papers in English are solicited. Abstracts should be ca. 1000 words and include the most important references. The relevance and originality of the contribution must be stated. or each contribution proposal indicate:
Aims & Scope
The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the state-of-the-art of the development, application and future trends in parallel computing, including recent developments in cluster and metacomputing.
Preference will be given to papers discussing real implementations and practical experiences.
Section 1: Applications
The application of parallel computers to solve all types of business, industrial, scientific and engineering problems. The emphasis should be on the impact of the parallel processing paradigm.
Section 2: Algorithms
Numerical and non-numerical parallel algorithms, also addressing aspects of scalability and adaptability.
Section 3: System Software & Hardware Architectures
Operating systems; compilers; techniques such as threading, scheduling, load balancing, message passing, automatic parallelisation; hardware architectures; communication systems; protocols; etc.
For each topic aspects relating to:
Abstracts: 28 February 1999 Full Papers: 15 July 1999
Submission of full papers
Based on the abstracts authors will be notified about provisional acceptance of papers by 30 April 1999.
Full papers must be submitted for final review and acceptance by 15 July 1999.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings after the conference.
The conference is organised by the non-profit foundation ParCo Conferences in co-operation with the Technical University of Delft.
