The 19th Annual ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA '07) 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 '07 will feature regular papers, each with a 25-minute talk, and brief announcements, each with a 10-minute talk. The SPAA brief announcements are for brief communications including work in progress or demos.
This year, SPAA will have a best paper award for the first time. Eligible are all regular papers.
In a tradition starting in 2001, SPAA defines "parallel" very broadly to encompass any computational system, or model, that can perform multiple operations or tasks simultaneously. As a consequence, contributed papers are sought in ALL areas of parallel algorithms and architectures, and of related fields including (but not limited to) game theory and collaborative learning, social networks, the Internet and the World Wide Web, peer-to-peer and wireless systems, multi-core architectures and quantum and DNA computing. Examples are
|Parallel and Distributed Algorithms||Parallel and Distributed Data Structures|
|Parallel Complexity Theory||Parallel Computing and Applications|
|Parallel and Distributed Architectures||The Internet and the World Wide Web|
|Game Theory||Collaborative Learning|
|Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI||Multi-Core Architectures|
|Routing and Information Dissemination||Resource Management and Awareness|
|Hashing, Caching and Scheduling||Graph and Network Theory|
|Peer-to-Peer Systems||Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks|
|Robustness and Security||Self-Stabilization|
|Compilers and Tools for Parallel Computing||Quantum and DNA Computing|
|Supercomputer Architecture and Computing||Grid Computing|
Regular presentations will be allotted a 25-minute talk and up to 10 pages in the proceedings. This format is intended for contributions reporting original research, submitted exclusively to this conference. Brief announcements will be allotted a 10-minute talk and a one-page abstract (each marked as a brief announcement) in the proceedings. This format is a forum for brief communications, which may be published later in other conferences.Submissions:
Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to submit their manuscript electronically. More details will follow. The deadlines for electronic submissions are
Authors who are unable to submit electronically should contact the program chair, Christian Scheideler, at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive instructions. Do not send electronic submissions to this email address.Paper Submission Format:
The cover page should include
Submissions of regular presentations should include the cover page followed by 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 on letter-size paper in 11-point font or larger (excluding the cover page and the references). More details (such as figures and proofs) may be supplied in a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the program committee.
A submission for the SPAA brief announcements should be no longer than 3 pages (excluding the cover page) on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font.

Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by e-mail or letter mailed on or before February 11. 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 March 22.
