            The 1999 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed
                                Processing Techniques and Applications
                                                    June 28 - July 1, 1999
                                    Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

The 1999 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing
Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'99) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada,
June 28 - July 1, 1999.
The last conference (PDPTA'98) had research contributions from 42
countries. It is hoped that PDPTA'99 will also have a strong
international flavor. For information on the last four PDPTA
conferences (PDPTA'95, PDPTA'96, PDPTA'97, & PDPTA'98), refer to: (a link to pdpta99 will soon
be created there).

You are invited to submit a draft paper of about 4 pages and/or a
proposal to organize a technical session (see below for submission
information). All accepted papers will be published in the conference

            Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their
            draft paper (about 4 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 7 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 at least 6 paper presentations.
            The session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
            sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ...
            The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors in
            the conference proceedings. After the conference, some sessions
            will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as
            Special Issues with the session proposer as the Guest Editor
            of the journal.

            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 a short description on how the session will
            be advertised (in most cases, session proposers solicit papers
            from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the
            session proposer).
            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. All accepted papers will also
            be considered for journal publication (soon after the conference).


            A number of university faculty members and their staff
            in cooperation with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference Division,
            Las Vegas ), will be organizing the conference. The conference
            is sponsored by the Computer Science Research, Education, and
            Applications Press (CSREA: USA Federal EIN # 58-2171953) in
            cooperation with the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and
            the Environment (Department of Energy, USA), The Java High
            Performance Computing research group (JHPC;,
            the Computer Vision Research and Applications Tech. (CVRA),
            developers of high-performance machines and systems (pending)
            and other related computer associations (pending.)


            The conference will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort
            hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This is a mega hotel
            with excellent conference facilities and over 3000 rooms.
            The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport with free
            shuttles to and from the airport. This hotel has many

            shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping
            area, bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24
            hours a day and most are suitable for families and children.
            The negotiated hotel's room rate for conference attendees
            is very reasonable ($79 + tax) per night (no extra charge
            for double occupancy) for the duration of the conference.

            The hotel is within walking distance from most 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, Grand Canyon, ...


            An exhibition is planned for the duration of the conference.
            We have reserved 20+ exhibit spaces. Interested parties
