Preliminary Call For Paper

Sixth International Workshop on Advanced Parallel Processing Technologies (APPT 2005)
27-28 Oct. 2005, Hong Kong, China

APPT is a biennial workshop on parallel and distributed processing. Its
scope covers all aspects of parallel and distributed computing
technologies, including architectures, software systems and tools,
algorithms, and applications. APPT was originated from collaborations by
researchers from China and Germany and has evolved to be an international
workshop. The past five workshops were held in Beijing, Koblenz, Changsha,
Illmenau, and Xiamen, respectively. APPT'05 will be the sixth in the
series. Following the success of the last five workshops, APPT'05 provides
a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange
and discuss their experiences, new ideas, and results about research in
the areas related to parallel and distributed processing

Papers are solicited. Topics of particular interest include, but are not
limited to :

- Parallel / Distributed System Architectures
- Advanced Microprocessor Architecture
- Middleware, Software Tools and Environments
- Parallelizing Compilers
- Software Engineering issues
- Interconnection Networks
- Network Protocols
- Task Scheduling and Load Balancing
- Grid Computing, Cluster Computing, Peer-to-Peer Computing
- Internet & Web computing
- Pervasive and Mobile Computing
- Security in networks and distributed systems
- Fault tolerance and dependability
- Image Generation and Processing: Rendering Techniques, Virtual Reality,
Visualization, Graphic Processing, etc

Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper in English (should
not exceed 10 pages (12 pt) in length) presenting original and unpublished
research results and experience. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Papers must be submitted in PDF (preferably) or Postscript
that is interpretable by Ghostscript. Submissions will be carried out
electronically on the Web via a link found at the conference web page
http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/APPT05/. Submissions imply the willingness of
at least one author to register, attend the conference, and present the
paper. There will be two best student paper awards to recognise
distinguished student research.

The proceedings of the symposium will be published in Springer's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (Pending).
