Second International Symposium on 
Parallel and Distributed Processing and Applications
Hong Kong, China, 13 - 15 Dec. 2004

With the advance of computer networks and hardware technology, parallel
and distributed processing has become a key technology which plays an
important part in determining future research and development activities
in many academic and industrial branches. It provides a means to solve
computationally intensive problems by improving processing speed. It is
also the only viable approach to building highly reliable and inherently
distributed applications. Following the success of the first conference
ISPA¡¦2003, held in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Japan,ISPA¡¦04 will 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.
ISPA'04 will feature session presentations, workshops,and keynote

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to :
* Computer  networks
* Network routing and communication algorithms
* Parallel/distributed system architectures
* Parallel/distributed algorithms
* Wireless networks,  mobile and pervasive computing
* Internet computing and Web technologies
* Peer-to-peer computing
* Grid and cluster computing
* Reliability, fault-tolerance, and security
* Performance evaluation and measurements
* Tools and environments for software development
* Distributed systems and applications
* High-performance scientific and engineering computing
* Database applications and data mining
* Biological/molecular computing

Submissions should include an abstract, key words, the e-mail address
of the correspondingauthor, and must not exceed 15 pages, including
tables and figures, with PDF, PostScript, or MSWord format.  Electronic
submission through the submission website is strongly encouraged. Hard
copies will be accepted only if electronic submission is not possible.
Submission of apaper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should
the paper be accepted,at least one ofthe authors will register and
attend the conference to present the work. 

Workshop proposals due:  15 June 2004 
Paper  submission due:   1 July 2004
Acceptance notification: 30 Aug 2004
Camera-ready due:        30 Sept. 2004
Conference:              13-15 Dec 2004

The proceedings of the symposium will be published in Springer's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science. A selection of the best papers for the
will be published in a special issueof The Journal of Supercomputing and
International Journal of High Performance Computing andNetworking

The program committee will select one winner for the Best Paper Award
(all regular papers areeligible) and one winner for the Best Student
Paper Award (only the regular papers whose firstauthor is a full-time
student are eligible). Each winner will be presented at the
a certificate and US$200.
