PDGC-2012 received a total of 606 Paper Submissions from 22 Countries. Technical Program Committee (TPC) Members and Reviewers from 25 Countries contributed to the peer review process. We finally selected 169 papers (an acceptance rate of 27.88%) for inclusion in the conference proceedings. All These papers have been organized into 22 oral technical sessions.
The Second IEEE International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Grid Computing (PDGC-2012) will be organized at Jaypee University of Information Technology, Waknaghat, Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India. The conference is technically sponsored by IEEE Delhi Section Computer Society Chapter. PDGC-2012 will serve as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in recent advances in the areas of parallel, distributed and grid computing. It will provide an opportunity to present and exchange advanced scientific and technological information in hardware, software and theoretical foundation in these areas.
The proceedings of PDGC 2012 will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore. The Best 4-6 Selected Papers from PDGC 2012 will be published in the Special Issue of International Journal of Parallel, Emergent and Distributed Systems (IJPEDS-http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/17445760.asp), Taylor and Francis.
