Submission Information

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Program Committee members and other experts active in the field to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference.

Submissions should include abstract, 5-10 keywords, and the e-mail address of the corresponding author and be in PDF format. Each submission must not exceed 8 pages in the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format with 10-12 point font, including tables and figures. Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the submission be accepted, at least one of the authors must register the paper and attend the conference to present the work in order that the accepted paper can be put into digital library. The final version will be limited to 8 pages in IEEE proceeding format for conference papers. Up to 2 extra pages may be purchased.


Papers accepted for ICPADS 2013 conference and workshops will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. Best Paper Award will be presented in the conference. Three papers nominated for the best paper will appear in the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems after another review process.
