The International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing,
Applications and Technologies (PDCAT) is a major forum for scientists,
engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present the latest
research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all areas of
parallel and distributed computing. Following PDCAT'00 in Hong Kong,
PDCAT'01 in Taipei, PDCAT'02 in Kanazawa, Japan, PDCAT¡¯03 will be held in
Chengdu, PR China.

Chengdu, a well-known city with a longstanding history and civilization,
lies in the west Sichuan plain. Now as the capital city of Sichuan province,
also named City of Brocade and City of Hibiscus, it comprises 5 districts,
12 counties with a total population of 8,873,000. Through the city flows the
Jinjiang River (river of brocade). In the downtown area, long and wide
avenues flanked with high-rise buildings and local shops and stores are
dotted with luxuriantly grown green trees, and well-trimmed colorful
flowers. The best-known tourist attractions in and around Chengdu include
Sanxingdui, Panda House, Du Fu Thatched Hut(To Ho) and Wu Hou Temple.
Various sightseeing tours are available at your own expense. August is the
end of summer in Chengdu with temperatures ranging from 18/22¡ãC in the
night to 24/29¡ãC in the day on average. Travel to Chengdu from major cities
is convenient via air, there are a number of direct flights to Chengdu from
Hong Kong, Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities.
The main focus for PDCAT'03 will be parallel and distributed computing
viewed from the three perspectives of networking and architectures, software
systems and technologies, algorithms and applications. Topics include, but
are not limited to, the following:

Networking and Communications:
- Interconnection networks

- Network routing and multicasting

- Wireless Ad Hoc & cellular networks

- Optical and ATM networks

    - Network reliability and fault-tolerance
    - Internet computing and Web technologies
    - Network Security

Systems and Technologies:

   - Parallel/distributed architectures
   - Parallelizing compilers
   - Component-based and OO Technology

   - Grid computing environments

   - Mobile computing and protocols

   - Modeling and simulation
   - Performance evaluation and measurements

Algorithms and Applications:

   - Parallel/distributed algorithms

   - Programming languages and software tools
   - Resource allocation and task scheduling

   - Image processing and computer graphics
   - Database applications and data mining
   - Cryptography and coding
   - Biological/molecular computing


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and experience
are solicited. Papers will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Accepted
and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Submissions should include an abstract, key words, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author, and must not exceed 10 pages (A4 size), including
tables and figures. Submissions imply the willingness of at least one author
to register, attend the conference, and present the paper. Submissions to
