------------------------------------------------------------------------
            Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals
    The 2008 IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and
     Distributed Processing with Applications (ISPA-08)

                December 10-12, 2008
                 Sydney, AUSTRALIA
         http://www.cs.usyd.edu.au/~ispa2008/

Introduction
====================

Following the traditions of previous successful ISPA conferences,
ISPA-03 (held in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Japan), ISPA-04 (held in Hong
Kong), ISPA-05 (held in Nanjing, China), ISPA-06 (held in Sorrento,
Italy) and ISPA-07 (held in Niagara Falls, Canada), the objective of
ISPA-08 is to provide a forum for scientists and engineers in academia
and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, research
results, and applications about all aspects of parallel and distributed
computing and networking. It will feature session presentations, workshops,
tutorials and keynote speeches. ISPA-08 is sponsored by IEEE CS Technical
Committee on Scalable Computing and IEEE Computer Society.

Scope and Interests
====================

The Conference invites papers on all aspects of Parallel/Distributed
Computing and Networking, and their applications. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

Computer networks
Network routing and communication algorithms
Parallel/distributed system architectures
Tools and environments for software development
Parallel/distributed algorithms
Distributed systems and applications
Wireless networks, mobile and pervasive computing
Reliability, fault-tolerance, and security
Performance evaluation and measurements
Grid and cluster computing
Internet computing and Web services
Database applications and data mining
High-performance scientific and engineering computing

Submission Information
====================

The conference and workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE CS Press to be indexed by
EI. Papers not exceed 15 pages with free layout style should be submitted through:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ispa08
Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, if the
paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend
the conference. Otherwise papers will be removed from the IEEE CS digital library.

Workshop Proposals
====================

In conjunction with the ISPA-08 conference, several workshops will be held. If you would
like to organize a workshop, please submit a workshop proposal including call for paper,
organizing committee, important dates, contact person, short bio of the organizers to the
ISPA-08 workshop chairs: Dr. Hai Jiang ( hjiang [at] cs.astate.edu) and Dr. Tao Li (taoli [at] ece.ufl.edu)
before February 28, 2008. The detailed guideline can be found at:
http://www.cs.usyd.edu.au/~ispa2008/workshops.html
Proceedings of the ISPA-08 workshops will be published by IEEE CS Press. The workshops
with more than 15 papers will be granted with a free complimentary registration
for the leading workshop organizer.
