Distributed Computing

* Chairs

+ Marc Frincu, University of Southern California, US
+ Karoly Bosa, Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria

* Topics

+ Models for parallel and distributed systems including models on resources and networks, semantic representation, negotiation, trace management, simulators;
+ Parallel and distributed algorithms for clouds, grids, HPC, GPUs, P2P systems, autonomous systems. Work should focus on scheduling, scaling, load balancing, networks, fault-tolerance, gossip algorithms, energy saving;
+ Architectures and platforms for parallel and distributed computing, including self-managing and autonomous systems, negotiation protocols, big data analysis architectures, HPC on clouds, GPU processing, PaaS for (inter)cloud, Internet of Things, brokering platforms, mobile computing solutions;
+ Applications for parallel and distributed systems, including work on cross disciplinary (scientific) applications for clouds/grids, big data platforms, web applications, workflow platforms, network measurement tools, programming environments;
+ Any other topic deemed relevant to the field.
