Submissions are sought in all areas of parallel algorithms and architectures, broadly construed, including both theoretical and experimental perspectives. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
|Parallel and Distributed Algorithms||Parallel and Distributed Data Structures|
|Parallel Complexity Theory||Scheduling in Parallel Systems|
|Specification and Verification of Concurrent Systems||Parallel and Distributed Architectures|
|Multiprocessor and Multicore Architectures||Transactional Memory Hardware and Software|
|Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI||Compilers and Tools for Concurrent Programming|
|Algorithms for GPUs and Other Alternative Parallel Architectures||High-Performance Parallel Computing and Architectures|
|Green & Power-Efficient Algorithms and Architectures||Algorithms for Social Networks|
|Biological Distributed Algorithms||Network Algorithms|
|Algorithms for Routing and Information Dissemination||Peer-to-Peer Systems|
|Mobile, Ad-Hoc, Wireless and Sensor Networks||Fault-tolerance and Reliability|
|Self-stabilization and Self-organization||Security and Privacy in Distributed and Parallel Systems|
|Parallel/Distributed Computational Learning||Game Theory and Collaborative Learning|
|Parallel/Distributed issues in Big Data||Resource Management and Awareness|
Regular papers should report on original research, submitted exclusively to this conference. Submissions may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages. (Papers will be judged based on their quality and not their length — short papers are welcome.) The title page, bibliography and designated figure pages (containing only figures) are not counted toward the ten pages. (Illustrative figures are encouraged.) All necessary details to substantiate the main claims of the paper should be included in a clearly marked appendix. Regular papers will be allotted up to 10 pages in the proceedings.Brief announcements:
SPAA also solicits brief announcements that raise issues of interest to the SPAA community. Brief announcements may not exceed two pages. Examples of good brief announcements include: (i) papers previously published elsewhere of interest to SPAA, (ii) work in progress, (iii) announcement of tools/libraries, (iv) challenge problems posed to the community, (v) corrections to earlier results. Brief announcements may also include smaller results of interest.
Authors may request that a regular paper be considered as a brief announcement. As far as possible, the program committee will remain blind to this request until status as a regular paper has been resolved. Such a request will not affect the chances of the manuscript to be accepted as a regular paper.Paper Submissions:
Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages for regular papers and two (2) single-spaced double-column pages for brief announcements, using 9-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, not counting the title page, bibliography and designated figure pages ). The title page should contain the title, author names and affiliations, followed by a brief abstract. See http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates (version 2.8, May 2015) for details, including the sig-alternate-05-2015.cls style file and a sample file. Additional details may be added in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Please indicate in the title of your manuscript whether this is a regular paper or a brief announcement.
Regular papers submitted to SPAA may not be under simultaneous consideration for a journal or any conference or workshop with published proceedings (other than as a brief announcement for a previous conference).
The deadlines for submissions are February 5 for regular papers and February 26 for brief announcements.Rebuttal Period:
There will be a rebuttal period during which the authors can point out misunderstandings
or comment on critical questions that the PC members may have. It will take place on
March 22-25 April 4-7.
Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by
e-mail on or before
April 11 April 20. A camera-ready copy of each
accepted abstract must be prepared according to the ACM guidelines for
inclusion in the proceedings of the conference and must be received by the date to be determined later.
Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award. The program committee may decline to make this award or may split the award among multiple papers.
