Call For Papers: The 10th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications (ISPA 2012) Madrid, Spain, 10-13 July 2012

** Important Dates **

Papers due: January, 15, 2012 Camera ready: April, 15 2012
Notification: March, 15 2012 Conference dates: July, 10-13, 2012

ISPA-12 follows the traditions of previous successful ISPA conferences, ISPA-03 (Aizu, Japan),
ISPA-04 (Hong Kong), ISPA-05 (Nanjing, China), ISPA-06 (Sorrento, Italy), ISPA-07 (Niagara Falls, Canada) and ISPA-08 (Sydney, Australia), ISPA-09 (Chengdu, China), ISPA-10 (Taipei, Taiwan), ISPA-11 (Busan, Korea).

The objective of ISPA 2012 is to provide a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, research results, and applications about all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and networking. It will feature session presentations, workshops, tutorials, and keynote speeches. ISPA-12 is sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and IEEE Computer Society.
