Dear Colleagues,

Please, allow me to bring to your attention the Final Call for Papers for
Technical Session on Applied
Parallel Algorithms, to be held in conjunction with the International
Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and
Applications, PDPTA'2001, Las Vegas, USA
 http://www.ashland.edu/~iajwa/conferences). The Conference is a long
running well established international event, attracting outstanding
researchers in the areas of parallel and distributed processing. It is
estimated that around 1500 participants will attend the PDPTA in 2001.

The Technical Section on Applied Parallel Algorithms
(http://www.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/~marina/Newweb/pdpta01.htm) is focused on
recent advances in high performance computing and applications of the
parallel algorithms to such natural sciences and engineering, including
parallel computational geometry, biology, chemistry and physics. Applied
computational methods in parallel and distributed environments, including
but not limited to computer graphics, visualization, GIS, databases, matrix
computations, equation solvers, Monte Carlo methods are also of interest.

The details on paper submission can be found from the attached Final Call
for Papers. Please note that the deadline for DRAFT paper submission is
March 13th, 2001.


			     in conjunction with
the 2001 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing
Techniques and Applications 				        PDPTA'2001
		June 25 - 28, 2001, Las Vegas, USA

Reading, UK

The concentration of this Technical Session is in the realms of applied
computational methods in parallel and distributed environments, including
but not limited to computer graphics, visualization, GIS, databases, matrix
computations, equation solvers, Monte Carlo methods, and others. (See the
list below.) The sequential counterpart of these topics have long been the
interest of researchers. However, many of the parallel aspects of various
algorithms, their implementations and applications, still remain open.
Implementation of these algorithms may be on systems ranging from
loosely-coupled pile of DSP's to workstation clusters to MPP's. The large
scale computations are of the special interest for session organizers. This
topic offers the opportunity to discuss problems and solutions in the area,
to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research, as well
as to help industrial users apply techniques of large scale parallel and
distributed computations.


Topics of interest of this Technical Session include, but not limited to:
matrix computations
equation solvers
Monte Carlo methods
random number generators
sorting algorithms
computer vision and computer graphics
computer simulation
parallel numerical computations/methods
parallel computational geometry, biology, chemistry and physics

The design and implementation of algorithms in parallel and distributed
environments, and applications of such methods to mechanics and physics, are
of special interest.
PDPTA Conference Series
The 2001 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing
Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'2001) will be held at the Monte Carlo
Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, from June 25 till June 28, 2000.
It is anticipated that this international event will attract about 1500
participants. This MultiConference is composed of eight International
conferences that will be held simultaneously. Attendees will have full
access to all eight conferences.
The conference will be co-sponsored by Computer Science Research, Education,
& Applications Press together with research centers, international
associations, international research groups, and developers of
high-performance machines and systems.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper of about 4
pages, to Kenneth Tan or Marina Gavrilova (contact information is given
below) by the due date, March 13, 2001. Papers must not have been previously
published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
Electronic submissions via e-mail is preferred, although fax submissions or
hard copy submissions are also acceptable. When submitting via e-mail, the
preferred formats are:
Adobe PostScript
Adobe PDF
DVI (please include all graphics files)
LaTex ((please include any non-standard style files or class files, and all

Papers in Microsoft Word format are also acceptable. Should the submission
for a paper contain more than one file, please submit them as a GZIP'ed or
'compress'ed Tar archive (i.e.: either as a .tar.gz or .tar.Z file). If
submitting via fax or in hard copy, please make sure 3 copies of the paper
arrive before the due date, March 1, 2001. The length of the camera-ready
papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 pages.

Please include a cover page which lists the following:

Title of the paper
Name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, and fax
number for each author
Name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted)
A maximum of 5 keywords
2 nominated referees and contact information of all nominated referees

The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN) in
hardcopy. The proceedings will be available at the conferences site. Some
accepted papers will also be considered for journal publication. In addition
to the hardcopy, it is also planned to publish the papers on a CD.

March 13, 2001 (Thursday): Draft papers (about 4 to 5 pages) due
April 2, 2001 (Monday) : Notification of acceptance
May 1, 2001 (Tuesday) : Camera-Ready papers and Preregistration due
June 25 - 28, 2001 : PDPTA'2001
