Venue & Dates:

Guangzhou, China, December 12-15, 2017


The IEEE ISPA 2017 (15th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications) is a forum for presenting leading work on parallel and distributed computing and networking, including architecture, compilers, runtime systems, applications, reliability, security, parallel programming models and much more. During the symposium, scientists and engineers in both academia and industry are invited to present their work on concurrent and parallel systems (multicore, multithreaded, heterogeneous, clustered systems, distributed systems, grids, clouds, and large scale machines).

The 15th IEEE ISPA follows the tradition of previous successful IEEE ISPA conferences in the years from 2003 to 2016 in Asia, Europe, Australia and North America. It will feature sessions of regular presentations, workshops, tutorials and keynote speeches. IEEE ISPA 2017 is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and the IEEE Computer Society. IEEE ISPA 2017 is particularly interested in research addressing heterogeneous computing with the use of accelerators, mobile computing, approximate computing, tools and methodologies to improve the quality of parallel programming and applying generic computing approaches to networks, in particular Software Defined networking and its applications.

Scope and Interests

(1) Systems and Architectures Track

(2) Technologies and Tools Track

(3) Applications Track

Submission and Publication Information

All papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference website ( with PDF format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 8 pages (or up to 12 pages with the pages over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in IEEE Computer Society proceedings Format with Portable Document Format (.pdf).

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE CPS Proceedings. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be recommended to high quality international journals.
