Scope of TPDS

IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS) is published monthly. It publishes a range of papers, comments on previously published papers, and survey articles that deal with the parallel and distributed systems research areas of current importance to our readers. Particular areas of interest in parallel systems include, but are not limited to: a) architectures: design, analysis, implementation, fault resilience and performance measurements of multiple-processor systems; multicore processors, heterogeneous many-core systems; networks on chips, clusters, networks and interprocessor communications; accelerator architectures b) software: parallel languages and compilers; scheduling and task partitioning; operating systems, and programming environments for multiple-processor systems; c) algorithms and applications: models of computation; analysis and design of parallel algorithms; experimental results on multiprocessors, and homogeneous/heterogeneous clusters. Particular areas of interest in distributed systems include, but are not limited to: a) models of computation, algorithms and theory for building distributed system infrastructure and for running distributed applications; b) systems and middleware design for scalable distributed systems; resource sharing and allocation; fault resilience; security and privacy issues; c) Internet computing and distributed applications: such as grid systems, autonomic computing, green computing, web services, distributed event processing, information centric networking, online social networks (distributed algorithms and operation, real and virtual interconnection structures, security), cloud computing (infrastructure, performance, programming, security), data centers, and data management in the Internet; d) emerging applications and networking technologies for distributed systems such as wireless (including ad hoc, delay-tolerant, vehicular and sensor) networks, mobile software systems, and cyber-physical systems.
