            The 1998 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed
                                Processing Techniques and Applications

                                                    July 13 - 16, 1998
                                                Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

The 1998 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing
Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'98) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada,
July 13-16, 1998.
The last conference (PDPTA'97) had research contributions from 39
countries. It is hoped that PDPTA'98 will also have a strong
international flavor. For information on the last three PDPTA
conferences (PDPTA'95, PDPTA'96, & PDPTA'97), refer to:

You are invited to submit a draft paper of about 5 pages and/or a
proposal to organize a technical session (see below for submission
information). All accepted papers will be published in the conference


SCOPE: Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

              O Parallel/Distributed applications:
                    Numerical computations/methods, neural networks and fuzzy

            Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their
            draft paper (about 5 pages) to H. R. Arabnia (address is given
            below) by the due date. E-mail and Fax submissions are also
            acceptable. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted)
            will be limited to 8 pages. Papers must not have been
            previously published or currently submitted for publication

            The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the
            paper, name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address,
            telephone number, and Fax number for each author. The first
            page should also include the name of the author who will be
            presenting the paper (if accepted) and a maximum of 5 keywords.


            Each technical session will have 5/6 paper presentations.
            The session chairs will be responsible in selecting the papers
            for their own sessions. The names of session chairs will appear
            as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings. Proposals
            to organize technical sessions should include the following
            information: name and address (+ E-mail) of proposer, title of
            session, a 100-word description of the topic of the session, and
            how you plan to advertise the session and select papers for the
            proposed session. Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia (address
            is given below); E-mail submissions are preferred.


            Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
            and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in
            the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by
            one person.


            The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press
            (ISBN). It will be a multivolume set. The proceedings will
            be available at the conference. It is planned to select 20
            papers for journal publication in related journals (after the


            A number of university faculty members in cooperation with
            the Las Vegas Hilton (conference division) will be organizing
            the conference. The conference is sponsored by the Computer
            Science Research, Education, and Applications Tech. (CSREA) in
            cooperation with the North American Transputer Users Group
            (NATUG) (pending), the National Supercomputing Center for
            Energy and the Environment (USA), the Computer Vision Research
            and Applications Tech. (CVRA), developers of high-performance
            machines and systems (pending) and related computer
            associations (pending.)


            The conference will be held in Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas,
            Nevada, USA. Las Vegas Hilton is one of the top resort hotels
            in the world. It has excellent conference facilities and over
            3000 rooms. The hotel is only minutes from the Las Vegas
            airport with free shuttles to and from the airport. The hotel
            has many vacation and recreational attractions, including:
            casino, swimming pools, sunning, tennis courts, luxurious
            health spa, golf course, evening shows (Andrew Lloyd Webber's
            spectacular musical), a number of bars, nightclub, virtual
            reality game rooms, shopping in the variety of distinct
            retail stores, 9 restaurants (Italian, Japanese, ...),
            snack bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a
            day and most are suitable for families and children. The
            hotel's room rate is ($99 + tax) per night for the duration of
            the conference.
            The hotel is minutes from other Las Vegas attractions (major
            shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining and
            night clubs, free street shows, ...).
            For the benefit of our international colleagues: the state of
            Nevada neighbors with the states of California, Oregon, Idaho,
            Utah, and Arizona. Las Vegas is only a few driving hours away
            from other major cities, including: Los Angeles, San Diego,
            Phoenix, ...


            An exhibition is planned during the conference. We have
            reserved 20+ exhibit spaces. Interested parties should contact
            H. R. Arabnia (address is given below). All exhibitors will be
            considered to be the co-sponsors of the conference. Each
            exhibitor will have the opportunity to include a two-page
            description of their latest products in the conference
            proceedings (if submitted by May 22, 1998).
