Scope of the Symposium In 2010, AusGrid event was broadened to include all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and hence was called as Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC). Following a couple of successful events, it comes to the 12th this year in the series. 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):
GPUs and other forms of special purpose processors
Service computing and workflow management
Managing large distributed data sets
Middleware and tools
Performance evaluation and modeling
Parallel programming models, languages and compilers
Resource scheduling and load balancing
Computational Science and Engineering
Reliability, security, privacy and dependability
Applications and e-Science
Best Paper Awards The AusPDC 2016 provides two best paper awards to recognize the accepted papers: – Best Paper Award: Presented to the outstanding paper in AusPDC 2016. – CORE Best Student Paper Award: Presented by CORE to the outstanding student paper in AusPDC 2016.
Special Issues Selected best papers will be published in the high-ranking journals.
Australasian Computer Science Week The Australasian Computer Science Week is the annual meeting for computer science researchers and educators held in the Australasian region. It includes the Australasian Computer Science Conference (ACSC), the premiere generalist forum for Australasian computer science academics, as well as several specialist conferences and workshops. Registration for ACSW enables participation in all the ACSW conferences and workshops, including AusPDC 2016.
