    Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
    them to the evaluation web site at: http://world-comp.org
    Submissions must be uploaded by March 31, 2011 and they must be
    in either MS doc (but not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7
    pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable
    typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
    papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to
    prepare their final papers for publication.) Papers must not have
    been previously published or currently submitted for publication
    The first page of the paper should include: title of the paper,
    name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
    author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact
    Author and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best
    represent the content of the paper. Finally, the name of the
    conference (ie, PDPTA) that the paper is being submitted for
    consideration must be stated on the first page.

    The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
    limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

    Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
    originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases
    of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference
    program committee will be charged to make the final decision
    (accept/reject) - often, this would involve seeking help from
    additional referees by using a double-blinded review process. In
    addition, all papers whose authors included a member of the
    conference program committee will be evaluated using the
    double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will
    not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).

    All proceedings of PDPTA will be published and indexed in:
    Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology,
    DBLP / CS Bibliography, and others. The printed proceedings
    will be available for distribution on site at the conference.
    In the past, all tracks of the federated congress have also been
    included in EI Compendex/Elsevier.

    PDPTA conference is an important track of a federated research
    conference. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
    with a number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP).
    WORLDCOMP is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
    science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate
    to have 2,000 or more attendees from over 85 countries.

    WORLDCOMP 2011 will be composed of research presentations, keynote
    lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
    and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel
    speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer/
    architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler
    (known as Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known
    as Father of Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster
    (known as Father of Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL),
    Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer/VR, U. of California, Berkeley),

    An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform
    for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars,
    researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress
    makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with
    diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations,
    government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the
    world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from
    institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those
    who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their
    main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its
    institution and geography diversity objectives."

    One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of
    affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into
    a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common
    time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in
    different branches of computer science, computer engineering,
    and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary
    and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating
    increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-

    According to "Microsoft Academic Search" (a Microsoft initiative)
    all tracks of WORLDCOMP are listed as worldwide "Top-ranked
    Conferences" (based on various metrics but mainly based on the
    number of citations). You can access "Microsoft Academic Search" to
    extract citation data for each individual track of worldcomp using
    the following link: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
    As of March 4, 2011, the papers published in the proceeedings have
    received 14,385 citations which is a higher citation than many
    reputable journals in computer science.
