11th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Algorithms and Applications

To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'19.

Bridging Theory and Practice in Parallel and Distributed Computing

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of parallel and distributed algorithms and applications. The workshop is meant to bridge research of theory and practice in all aspects of parallel and distributed computing. We are convinced that the workshop atmosphere will be conducive to open and mutually beneficial exchanges of ideas between the participants of these areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Theory and Algorithms

Parallel and distributed algorithms, Parallel and distributed computing models, Hardware algorithms, Graph-theoretic concepts in parallel and distributed computing, Geometric and graph algorithms, Complexity theory in parallel and distributed computing, Network routing and communication algorithms, Combinatorial algorithms, Randomized and ApproximationTechniques, Cellular Automata

Parallel and Distributed Computing

DNA Computing, Membrane Computing, Quantum Computing, Internet Computing, Wireless networks and mobile computing, Internet computing, Reconfigurable Computing, Internet Computing, Optical Computing, Natural Computing, Biologically inspired computing, Unconventional Computing

Practical Aspects and Applications
