## PASA Workshop 2008

The PASA workshop series has the goal to build a bridge between theory and practice in the area of parallel systems and algorithms. In this context practical problems which require theoretical investigations as well as the applicability of theoretical approaches and results to practice shall be discussed. An important aspect is communication and exchange of experience between various groups working in the area of parallel computing, e.g. in computer science, electrical engineering, physics or mathematics.

**Topics of Interest include, but are not restricted to:**

- parallel architectures & storage systems
- interconnection networks
- parallel embedded systems
- reconfigurable parallel computing
- ubiquitous and pervasive systems
- distributed and parallel multimedia systems
- models of parallel computation
- performance evaluation of parallel systems
- data stream-oriented computing
- software engineering for parallel systems
- parallel and distributed algorithms
- parallel programming languages
- network and grid computing
- new technologies & architectures (SoC, Multicores, PIM, etc.)
- parallel organic computing
- alternative technologies (e.g. quantum or DNA computing)

The workshop will comprise invited papers on current topics of leading experts in the field as well as submitted papers. The accepted papers shall have a length of about 10 pages A4 and will be published in the ARCS Workshop Proceedings as well as in the PARS Newsletter (ISSN 0177-0454). For ARCS 2008 participants the workshop is included in the conference fee, for participation in the workshop alone, only a reduced fee is due. The conference languages are English (preferred) and German. Papers are required to be in English.

** A prize of 500 € will be awarded to the best contribution presented personally based on a student's or Ph.D. thesis**.
