Australasian Computer Science Week 2010

by Alistair

The Australasian Computer Science Week multi-conference is to be held on the 18-21 January 2010 at QUT in Brisbane.

Conferences include the main Australasian Computer Science Conference (ACSC), along with several others, including the Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC).

The submission deadlines for all conferences is the 17th of August. For more information, visit the main conference site.

The AusPDC call for papers is copied below:

AusGrid event has been broadened to include all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and hence it will be called as Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (PARDISC) from 2010. In both New Zealand and Australia parallel and distributed computing has been recognised as strategic technologies for driving their moves towards knowledge economies. A number of projects and initiatives are underway in both countries in these areas. There is a natural interest in tools which support collaboration and access to remote resources given the challenges of the countries location and sparse populations.

Topics of interest for the symposium include but not limited to:

  • Multicore
  • GPUs and other forms of special purpose processors
  • Cluster computing
  • Grid computing
  • Cloud computing
  • Peer-to-peer computing
  • Service computing and workflow management
  • Managing large distributed data sets
  • Middleware and tools
  • Performance evaluation and modeling
  • Problem-solving environments
  • Parallel programming models, languages and compilers
  • Runtime systems
  • Operating systems
  • Resource scheduling and load balancing
  • Data mining
  • Reliability, security, privacy and dependability
  • Applications and e-Science

The symposium is primarily targeted at researchers from Australia and New Zealand, however in the spirit of parallel and distributed computing, which aims to enable collaboration of distributed virtual organizations, we encourage papers and participation from international researchers.
