We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.

The 8th International Symposium on Parallel Architectures, Algorithms,
and Networks
December 7-9, 2005, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
URL: http://sigact.acm.org/ispan05

Organized by:
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
and the Center for the Advanced Study of Algorithms (CASA)

Scope of symposium
The International Symposium on Parallel Architectures, Algorithms, and
Networks (I-SPAN) is a forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners
throughout the world to exchange ideas and research results related to the
design, use, analysis, and application of parallel architectures,
algorithms, networks, and internet technology.

The first seven symposia were held:
o I-SPAN 1994: in Kanazawa, Japan, on December 14-16, 1994
o I-SPAN 1996: in Beijing, China, on June 12-14, 1996
o I-SPAN 1997: in Taipei, Taiwan, on December 18-20, 1997
o I-SPAN 1999: in Perth/Freemantle, Australia, on June 23-25, 1999
o I-SPAN 2000: in Dallas/Richardson, Texas, USA, on December 7-9, 2000
o I-SPAN 2002: in Manila, the Philippines, on May 23-25, 2002
o I-SPAN 2004: in Hong Kong on May 10-12, 2004

The 8th I-SPAN symposium will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on
December 7-9, 2005.  Las Vegas is a city that has something for everyone.
While you are here, make sure to see all the great attractions the city of
Las Vegas has to offer. Recognized all over the world, our famous Strip is
where tourists can enjoy a walk in the warm desert evening, or take a
stroll downtown and view a dazzling light show that spans an entire street
- the Fremont Street Experience. You can also get a glimpse of amazing
world famous re-creations like erupting volcanoes, the Eiffel Tower and
the Sphinx of Egypt. Las Vegas offers top quality entertainment,
attractions, shopping and world-renowned resorts. Las Vegas nightlife will
keep you up until dawn and art displays, music and museums take you on a
journey from the classic to the contemporary. Downtown Las Vegas offers an
energetic display of color with a bit of nostalgia and a glimpse of the

I-SPAN 2005 will include keynote addresses, invited/contributed papers,
workshops, and special sessions on on-going projects on high-performance
computing and/or communications. The symposium will have four tracks:
o Algorithms and Applications

Submission Guidelines
Please submit your complete paper(s) to the Program Committee Vice-Chair
(VC) whose track is most relevant to your paper's subject.  If you are not
sure or your paper has a cross-track nature, send the paper to the Program
Committee Chair. Authors are invited to submit 10-page extended abstracts
by 5:00pm EDT, July 1, 2005 and must submit through the SIGACT electronic
submission server. A detailed description of the electronic submission
process is available at
http://sigact.acm.org/ispan05/author_resources.html. The results presented
in the paper must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere, including the proceedings of other conferences or workshops.
One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present the paper at
the conference. The proceedings of the conference and the workshops will
be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
