Extended Call for Papers
Extended Submission Date: March 9, 2007
The 2007 International Conference on Communications in Computing: CIC2007
Monte Carlo Resort hotel, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA June 25 - 28, 2007
Submission Date: Feb. 20, 2007
The International Conference on Communications in Computing (CIC) focuses on the communication requirements directly induced or required by computing systems. An essential element of modern day distributed and high performance computing systems is the trade-off in the amount of computation versus the amount of communication performed. Certain applications are inherently communication-intensive. In others, communication steps may be replaceable with local computations and vice versa. At the same time, systems resources may support large communication requirements. In other systems, physical or power constraints may limit the communication support. 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 computing systems. CIC 2007 is part of The 2007 World Congress in Computer Science Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'07).
Following the recent broadening of the field of parallel and distributed computing, CIC covers all current research endeavors in this field. 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.
March 9, 2007 Extended Due Date Draft papers (7 IEEE style two-column pages) March 20, 2007: Notification of acceptance (for papers submitted prior to Feb. 26. ) April 2, 2007: Notification of acceptance (for papers submitted after Feb. 26. ) June 25 - 28, 2007: Conference
All submissions should relate to the dual computation and communication focus of the conference. Submissions are organized into one of two tracks with each track emphasizing either the computational or communication nature of the work.
Networking and Communications Track - Communication Networks for computing - Communication Protocols for computing - mobile systems - wireless and optical networks - wireless sensor networks - Computing network management - Internet, Web-based Computing, E-commerce, and Telecommunications in applications - Network security in distributed applications - Ubiquitous systems
Parallel and Distributed Systems Track - Communications in High Performance Computing - Parallel & Distributed Algorithms - Communications in New Computational Paradigms (e.g. optical-, nano-, bio-computing) - Parallel, Distributed, Grid, Peer-to-Peer and Cluster-based Computing - Interconnection Networks - Computation and Communication Performance Models - Modeling and Simulation of High Performance Systems - Scalable and Interoperable Systems and Associated Standards - Software Systems (e.g. operating system support, middleware, tools) - Reliability and Fault Tolerance inEmbedded and Real Time Systems
