SPAA'98: Call for Papers
Postscript copy of the SPAA'98 Call for Papers
The Tenth Annual
ACM Symposium on Parallel Algorithms and Architectures
(SPAA'98) is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups for Algorithms
Complexity Theory (SIGACT) and Computer Architecture (SIGARCH) and
organized in cooperation with the European Association for Theoretical
Contributed papers are sought in the areas of parallel algorithms and
architectures, at all levels of parallelism, from VLSI to instruction-level
parallelism to SMPs to supercomputers.
A major goal of SPAA is to foster communication and
cooperation among the diverse communities involved in the theory and
practice of parallel computing, including those involved in systems,
algorithms, languages, and applications.
Papers should present original, fundamental advances in
The Symposium encourages papers that
Papers must not be submitted
to any other conference with published proceedings.
- offer novel approaches to parallel computing,
- present new
ideas in parallel algorithms or architectures (including novel
algorithm implementations on real machines and innovative use of technology),
- present models for accounting for
costs on parallel machines, or
- study the interaction of parallel
algorithms, languages and architectures.
New This Year
- The Symposium especially encourages submissions in Parallel I/O
and Parallel Databases.
The deadline for submissions is January 16, 1998 17:00 EST.
In response to many requests for extensions, the
deadline for submissions has been extended.
All electronic or hardcopy submissions must arrive by January 21, 1998,
There will be no further extensions.
Inquiries may be addressed to:

Paper Submission Format
The cover page should include (1) title, (2) authors and affiliation,
(3) e-mail address of the contact author, and (4)
a brief abstract describing the work.
The draft should include an introduction understandable to a
nonspecialist including motivation and previous work and a
technical exposition directed to a specialist.
It should not exceed 10 printed pages in 11-point type or larger
(excluding cover, figures, and references). More details may
be supplied in a clearly marked appendix to be read at the
discretion of the Program Committee.The separate cover page required for submitted papers helps expedite the handling of submissions and does not imply blind
reviewing of papers.
Authors will be sent notification of acceptance
or rejection by e-mail on or before March 10, 1998.
A camera-ready copy of each accepted paper, prepared according to
ACM guidelines, must be received by April 7, 1998.
Accepted papers will be allotted a 25-minute presentation
at the conference.
A SPAA Revue session
will be held in conjunction with SPAA'98,
with invited presentations, posters, and demonstrations of current
