International Conference on Communications in Computing (CIC'2000) Conference

Communications in Computing (CIC'2000) is a new conference that focuses on the communication requirements directly induced or required by computations. An essential element of parallel and distributed computing is the trade-off in the amount of computation versus the amount of communication performed. In other words, computations induce a certain amount of required communication. This conference provides a venue for scholarly publication that explores issues relating to the combined effects of communications and computations in the context of modern day computing systems. Following the recent broadening of the field of parallel and distributed computing, CIC'2000 covers all current research endeavors in this field, including: interconnection networks, parallel languages, broker technologies, applications, architectures, etc. Submissions are also encouraged from researchers in other areas of computing and from related areas in physics, computer engineering or other areas of study whose work supports the focus of this conference. Submissions are expected to represent exceptional work and not be published nor considered for publication elsewhere (survey papers are acceptable). The venue includes invited speakers and will foster synergistic relationships among the participants. As well, CIC'2000 will be jointly held with other conferences, thus participants have the opportunity to interact with an expected large body of international researchers. Currently, the following conferences will be held simultaneously with CIC'2000: (a) The 2000 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'2000), (b) The 2000 International Conference on Imaging Science, Systems, and Technology (CISST'2000), and (c) The 2000 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IC-AI'2000). Last year, the PDPTA conference had over 750 participants with contributions from 44 countries; it is expected that this trend of participation will continue this year, thus providing researchers and attendees of CIC'2000 a `multi-conference' atmosphere. TOPICS The following topics are suggested as particular examples of interest to CIC'2000. Submissions are not limited to these topics. In all cases, submissions must reflect the focus of this conference. High Performance Applications (e.g. scientific, commercial, etc.) Distributed Systems and Advanced Applications (e.g. multimedia, cooperative systems) Scalable and Interoperable Systems and Associated Standards Software Systems (e.g. operating system support, middleware, development environments, tools, distributed objects) Architecture (e.g. VLSI, SIMD, MIMD, vector, systolic, reconfigurable, special-purpose) Interconnection networks (e.g. bus-based, optical) ATM based networks Communications (e.g. routing algorithms, switching techniques, wireless, mobile) Visualization (e.g. scientific visualization, debugging and load balancing tools) Photonics and Optical Computing Performance Issues (e.g. benchmarks, performance measurement, evaluation and prediction) Modeling and Simulation of High Performance Systems Advanced Compilation Techniques (e.g. parallelizing compilers) Programming Languages for Parallel and other High Performance Computing Environments Parallel/Distributed/Vector Algorithms Reliability and Fault Tolerance Embedded and Real Time Systems Digital Signal Processing Neural Computing, Genetic Algorithms and their applications Issues in High Performance Computing (e.g. evolving paradigms such as NOW/COW, PIM Systems as well as grand challenge problems) Internet technology, Web based processing, E-commerce, telecommunication network, cluster-based computing
