|Parallel Complexity Theory||Parallel and Distributed Architectures|
|Multi-Core Architectures||Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI|
|Compilers and Tools for Concurrent Programming||Supercomputer Architecture and Computing|
|Transactional Memory Hardware and Software||The Internet and the World Wide Web|
|Game Theory and Collaborative Learning||Routing and Information Dissemination|
|Resource Management and Awareness||Peer-to-Peer Systems|
|Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks||Robustness, Self-Stabilization and Security|
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 2-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.
The best regular paper will be given a best paper award.
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, Michael Bender, to receive instructions. Do not send electronic submissions to this email address.Paper Submission Format:
The cover page should include
Submissions of regular presentations including ones for the special track 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, the figures and the references). More details 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.
For authors who are not sure about the right format, a simple Latex template can be accessed here.Notification:
Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by e-mail or letter mailed on or before April 22. 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 May 28.
