CALL FOR PAPERS

PPAM 2017

12th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PARALLEL PROCESSING AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS

Lublin, Poland,
September 10-13, 2017
http://ppam.pl

The PPAM 2017 conference, twelfth in a series, will cover topics in parallel and distributed computing, including theory and applications, as well as applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms, and software tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization of modern parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as on large-scale applications, including big data and machine learning problems.

PPAM is a biennial conference started in 1994, with the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences series. In 2017 the PPAM conference will take place in Lublin, the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, an academic and cultural centre, proud of its rich history and picturesque Old Town.

The PPAM 2017 conference is organized by Czestochowa University of Technology together with Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin, under the patronage of Committee of Informatics of Polish Academy of Sciences, in technical cooperation with IEEE Computer Society and ICT COST Action IC1305 "Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS)".

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Parallel/distributed architectures, enabling technologies
  • Cluster and cloud computing
  • Multi-core and many-core parallel computing, GPU computing
  • Heterogeneous/hybrid computing and accelerators
  • Parallel/distributed algorithms: numerical and non-numerical
  • Scheduling, mapping, load balancing
  • Performance analysis and prediction
  • Performance issues on various types of parallel systems
  • Autotuning: methods, tools, and applications
  • Power and energy aspects of computation
  • Parallel/distributed programming
  • Tools and environments for parallel/distributed computing
  • Security and dependability in parallel/distributed environments
  • HPC numerical linear algebra
  • HPC methods of solving differential equations
  • Evolutionary computing, meta-heuristics and neural networks
  • Machine learning and HPC
  • HPC interval analysis
  • Applied Computing in mechanics, material processing, biology and medicine, physics, chemistry, business, environmental modeling, etc.
  • Applications of parallel/distributed computing
  • Methods and tools for parallel solution of large-scale problems, including big data and machine learning applications
  • Neuromorphic computing

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

LNCS

Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit full papers (draft version, PDF file, together with abstract) using the online submission system before April 21, 2017. Regular papers are not to exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the conference topics. Abstracts of accepted papers will be available during the conference in form of a brochure. Only papers presented at PPAM 2017 will be included into the proceedings, which is planned to be published after the conference by Springer in the LNCS series. Full camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be required by November 15, 2017.

JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUES

Like the previous PPAM editions, the authors of the best papers selected by the Program Committee will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to special issues of journals with Impact Factor such as International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications, and Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
