Welcome to AusPDC 2017

 

 

 

15th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC)

AusPDC 2017 will be held in Geelong Australia in conjunction with Australasian Computer Science Week, January 31 - February 3, 2017.

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 15th 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):

The symposium is primarily targeted at researchers from Australia and New Zealand, however in the spirit of parallel and distributed computing, which aims to enable collaboration of distributed virtual organizations, we encourage papers and participation from international researchers.
