Special Issue of Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing on

Parallel and Distributed Data Structures

Publication Date: April 1998

The Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing is announcing a special issue on parallel and distributed data structures.

Parallel and distributed computing is one of the important areas of research in computer science, seeking to extract and exploit inherent parallelism in problems, in order to gain speedup over sequential solutions. Since data structures play crucial role in algorithm design, significant advancement in parallel programming and hence wide-spread use of commercial parallel computers will not be feasible without a rich collection of efficient parallel and distributed data structures for large-scale problems.

This special issue of Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing aims to publish high quality papers on the design, analysis and implementation of state-of-the-art parallel and distributed data structures. Of particular interest are efficient and practical algorithms for real-life applications as well as performance studies on commercially-available parallel architectures such as shared-memory multiprocessors, distributed-memory multicomputers and networks of workstations.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Prospective authors of high quality research contributions are invited to submit 6 copies of a complete manuscript not exceeding 35 double-spaced pages (including tables, figures, references and appendices) by March 15, 1997 to any of the following Guest Editors. All submissions to the Special Issue will be refereed according to the standards of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.
