8th Australian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing

8th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing
(AusPDC 2010)
Brisbane, Australia, January 18-22, 2010
in conjunction with
Australasian Computer Science Week, 18-22 January 2010
The 8th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed (AusPDC 2010) will be held in January, in Brisbane, Australia in conjunction with Australasian Computer Science Week, 18-22 January 2010.

Scope of the Symposium
AusGrid event has been broadened to include all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and hence it will be called as Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC) from 2010. In both New Zealand and Australia parallel and distributed computing has been recognised as strategic technologies for driving their moves towards knowledge economies. A number of projects and initiatives are underway in both countries in these areas. There is a natural interest in tools which support collaboration and access to remote resources given the challenges of the countries location and sparse populations.

Topics of interest for the symposium include but not limited to:
* Multicore
* GPUs and other forms of special purpose processors
* Cluster computing
* Grid computing
* Green computing

* Cloud computing
* Peer-to-peer computing
* Service computing and workflow management
* Managing large distributed data sets
* Middleware and tools
* Performance evaluation and modeling
* Problem-solving environments
* Parallel programming models, languages and compilers
* Runtime systems
* Operating systems
* Resource scheduling and load balancing
* Data mining
* Reliability, security, privacy and dependability
* Applications and e-Science

The symposium is primarily targeted at researchers from Australia and New Zealand, however in the spirit of parallel and distributed computing, which aims to enable collaboration of distributed virtual organizations, we encourage papers and participation from international researchers.

Best Paper Award:
A best paper award sponsored by Manjrasoft Pty. Ltd, Australia will be presented to a paper receiving the highest quality rating. In addition, a special issue in a high quality international journal will be organized for selected best papers.
