It is our pleasure to announce the 7th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing – ISPDC 2008. We have been witnessing an unprecedented development of parallel and distributed computing techniques and the respective system technology. This development cannot be complete and successful without fast distribution of new ideas and concepts as well as a profound verification of new technical solutions proposed some time ago.

The ISPDC conferences provide a wide international forum for these purposes with an interactive and friendly, but strongly professional atmosphere.

The previous symposia were held with success in: 2002: Iasi, Romania, 2003: Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2004: Cork, Ireland, 2005: Lille, France, 2006: Timisoara, Romania, 2007: Hagenberg, Austria.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers (not being considered for publication elsewhere) describing new theoretical and/or experimental research. The conference scope will be focussed on but not limited to the following topics:

  • Parallel Computing
  • Cluster Computing
  • Grid Computing
  • Web Services and Internet Computing
  • Cooperative and Collaborative Computing
  • Peer-to-peer Computing
  • Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
  • New Parallel System Concepts and Architectures
  • Distributed Systems Methodology and Networking
  • Software Agents and Multi-agent Systems
  • Algorithms, Models and Formal Verification
  • Parallel Programming Paradigms and APIs
  • Tools and Environments for Parallel Program Analysis
  • Operating Systems for Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • Task Scheduling and Load Balancing
  • Performance Management in Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • Parallel, Distributed and Mobile Databases
  • Distributed Software Components
  • Real-time Distributed and Parallel Systems
  • Security in Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • Fault Tolerance in Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • Bio-inspired Parallel Algorithms
  • Parallel Scientific Computing and Large Scale Simulations
  • Parallel and Distributed Applications

The extended deadline for paper submission is 31 March, 2008.
The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press in a post-conference volume. A selection of the best papers will be published in a special issue of the electronic journal Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience.

Papers are to be submitted in an electronic form via the submission WWW site:
The papers should be sent as a single PDF or PostScript file and should not contain more than 8 pages in the IEEE CS two–column format described at (see formatting).
