Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing has undergone impressive change over recent years. New architectures and applications have rapidly become the central focus of the discipline. These changes are often a result of cross-fertilisation of parallel and distributed technologies with other rapidly evolving technologies. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of parallel and distributed computing, from industry and the scientific community.
This special issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA) journal will include selected high-quality papers from the 29th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Parallel Computing on massively parallel machines; embedded parallel and distributed systems; multi- and many-core systems; GPU and FPGA based parallel systems; parallel I/O; memory organisation.
Distributed and Network-based Computing: Cluster, Grid, Web and Cloud computing; mobile computing; interconnection networks.
Novel systems and architectures; high data throughput architectures; service-oriented architectures; heterogeneous systems; shared-memory and message-passing systems; middleware and distributed operating systems; dependability and survivability; resource management.
Programming models and Tools: programming languages and environments; runtime support systems; performance prediction and analysis; simulation of parallel and distributed systems.
The extended journal versions of conference papers must contain at least 30% of new materials (this does not necessary mean new research results, but may represent better explanations, more extensive use of graphical means, etc).
General information for submitting papers to JSA can be found at https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-systems-architecture. Submissions should be made online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jsa/. Please select the “VSI:PDP21” option as the type of the paper during the submission process.
All enquiries regarding this special issue can be sent to the leading guest editor Arturo Gonzalez-Escribano (firstname.lastname@example.org).
