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
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:
- GPUs and other forms
of special purpose processors
- Cluster computing
- Grid computing
- Cloud computing
- Peer-to-peer computing
- Service computing and
- Managing large
distributed data sets
- Middleware and tools
- Performance evaluation
- 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.
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.
Australasian Computer Science Week
The Australasian Computer Science Week
is the annual meeting for computer science researchers and educators held in
the Australasian region. It includes the Australasian Computer Science
Conference (ACSC), the premiere generalist forum for Australasian computer
science academics, as well as several specialist conferences and workshops.
Registration for ACSW enables participation in all the ACSW conferences and
workshops, including AusPDC 2010.
