It is our pleasure to invite you to the 16th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC-2017). Following very successful runs since 2002 at locations all over Europe, last time in July 2016 in FuZhou, China, the next ISPDC edition will be held from 3 to 6 July 2017, in Innsbruck, Austria. It will be organised by the Institute for Computer Science, University of Innsbruck, Austria. The mission of the 16th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing is to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners involved in the development of new algorithms, architectures and applications for parallel and distributed computing, as well as visualisation and post-processing. The goal is to provide an interactive and friendly yet professional forum for original research contributions describing novel ideas, groundbreaking results or quantified system experiences. We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the 16th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC-2017).
