Fourteenth ACM Symposium on Parallel Algorithms and Architectures
August 11-13, 2002
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
The Fourteenth Annual ACM Symposium on Parallel Algorithms and
Architectures (SPAA '02) is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest
Groups on Algorithms and Computation Theory (SIGACT) and Computer
Architecture (SIGARCH) and
organized in cooperation with the European Association
for Theoretical Computer Science.
SPAA '02 will feature contributed papers, each with a 25-minute talk,
and SPAA revue papers, each with a 10-minute talk. The SPAA revue is
for brief communications including work in progress or demos.
This year, in a tradition starting in 2001, SPAA defines "parallel"
very broadly to encompass any computational "device" that can perform
multiple operations or tasks simultaneously. As a consequence, SPAA
2002 covers all traditional parallel and distributed architectures,
plus new aspects including satellite networks, the web, quantum and
DNA computing, etc. For more information, see the call for papers
Online proceedings from previous SPAA conferences are accessible (membership
needed for full text) by following the ACM digital library links from the
ACM home page.
The conference will
be held at
Delta Winnipeg Hotel. Please make your hotel reservations soon as
the block may not be held much longer. There's a lot to do in
Winnipeg, including the Folklorama festival, going on during
the conference. Here's some local
information. If you would like help finding a roommate for the
conference, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the
dates of your stay, your gender, and your smoking preferences.
These new registration forms include a fax number for registrations
using a credit card. Here is a postscript
registration form. For those who prefer it, here is a text registration form.
Here's the latest
program. This has changed slightly
from the schedule first posted: the entire schedule for Monday has
been moved half an hour earlier to accomodate an earlier departure for
