Following the traditions of previous successful ISPA conferences, ISPA03 (held in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Japan), ISPA04 (Hong Kong), ISPA05 (Nanjing, China), ISPA06 (Sorrento, Italy), and ISPA07 (Niagara Falls, Canada), the objective of ISPA08 is to provide a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, research results, and applications about all aspects of parallel and distributed computing and networking. ISPA08 will feature session presentations, workshops, tutorials and keynote speeches.


ISPA-08 is sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and IEEE Computer Society.

  • Computer Networks
  • Network routing and communication protocols
  • Parallel/distributed systems
  • Development Tools and environments for software development
  • Parallel/distributed algorithms
  • High performance and distributed systems and applications
  • Wireless networks, mobile and pervasive systems
  • Reliability, fault-tolerance, and security
  • Performance evaluation and measurement
  • Grid and cluster computing
  • Internet computing and Web services
  • Database applications and data mining
  • High-performance scientific and engineering computing
