Dear Sir or Madam,

(We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message)                                             



The 10th IEEE International Symposium on 
Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications 
(ISPA 2012)


Madrid, Spain, 10-13 July 2012

** Important Dates **
Papers due: January, 15, 2012             Camera ready: April, 15 2012 
Notification: March, 15 2012              Conference dates: July, 10-13, 2012

ISPA-12 follows the traditions of previous successful ISPA conferences, ISPA-03 (Aizu, Japan), 
ISPA-04 (Hong Kong), ISPA-05 (Nanjing, China), ISPA-06 (Sorrento, Italy), ISPA-07 (Niagara Falls, 
Canada) and ISPA-08 (Sydney, Australia), ISPA-09 (Chengdu, China), ISPA-10 (Taipei, Taiwan), 
ISPA-11 (Busan, Korea).

The objective of ISPA 2012 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. It will feature session 
presentations, workshops, tutorials, and keynote speeches. ISPA-12 is sponsored by IEEE Technical 
Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and IEEE Computer Society.
