SPAA 2010 Call for Papers

22nd ACM Symposium on Parallelism in Algorithms and Architectures

Santorini, Greece
June 13-15, 2010


Contributed papers are sought in all areas of parallel algorithms and architectures. SPAA defines the term « parallel » broadly, encompassing any computational system that can perform multiple operations or tasks simultaneously.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Parallel and Distributed Algorithms and Applications
– Parallel and Distributed Data Structures
– Parallel Complexity Theory
– Parallel and Distributed Architectures
– Multi-Core Architectures
– Instruction Level Parallelism and VLSI
– Compilers and Tools for Concurrent Programming
– Supercomputer Architecture and Computing
– Transactional Memory Hardware and Software
– The Internet and the World Wide Web
– Game Theory and Collaborative Learning
– Routing and Information Dissemination
– Resource Management and Awareness
– Peer-to-Peer Systems
– Mobile Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks
– Robustness, Self-Stabilization, and Security
– Green Computing and Power-Efficient Architectures
– Management of Massive Data Sets

Regular presentations will be allotted a 25-minute talk and up to 10 pages in the proceedings. This format is intended for contributions
reporting original research, submitted exclusively to this conference.

Brief announcements will be allotted a 10-minute talk and a 2-page abstract in the proceedings. This format is a forum for brief
communications, which may be published later in other conferences.

The best regular paper will be given a best paper award.


Authors of contributed papers are encouraged to submit their manuscript electronically. To submit electronically, visit for instructions. This is the preferred method of submission. Authors unable to submit
electronically should contact the program chair Cynthia Phillips at to receive instructions.

The cover page should include (1) title, (2) authors and affiliation, (3) postal and email address of the contact author, (4) a brief abstract
describing the content of the paper, and (5) an indication if this is a regular presentation or a brief announcement. If requested by the
authors, an extended abstract that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for the SPAA brief announcements
session. Such a request will not affect the consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.

Submissions for regular presentations should include an introduction understandable to a nonspecialist including motivation and previous
work, and a technical exposition directed to a specialist. A submission should not exceed 10 printed pages in 11-point type or larger (excluding
cover, figures, and references). More details may be supplied in a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the program
committee. A submission for brief announcements should be no longer than three pages using at least 11-point font.


Submission deadline: January 13, 2010 11:59 p.m. EST (for regular papers and brief announcements)

Notification: March 12, 2010
Camera-ready copy: April 1, 2010
