Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing

Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing, from industry and the scientific community. PDP 2014 will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level. This year PDP received 220 submissions from 49 countries, which is a record number!
Accepted papers and statistics can be found here.

The overall acceptance rate of full papers in the PDP 2014 main track has been 32.6% (33.6% including special sessions). The original Call for Papers is available here: PDP 2014 Call for Papers



The PDP 2014 conference, organised by Computer Science Department of University of Turin, will be held in the University of Turin historical building located in Via Po 17, Turin. See also the PDP 2014 events map.
