Topic 10: Theory and Algorithms for Parallel Computation

1 Description

Parallelism permeates all levels of current computing systems. Hence, most performance critical applications now need efficient and scalable parallel algorithms at their heart. This is currently causing a renaissance in the study of parallel algorithms and their underlying machine models and theoretical foundations.

High quality, original papers are solicited which contribute new results on parallel algorithms, computational models, and their theoretical foundations.
