The International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Grid Computing


The International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Grid Computing (PDGC) will serve as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in 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 First International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Grid Computing (PDGC-2010) was organized by Jaypee University of Information Technology, Waknaghat, Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India from 28th Oct 2010 to 30th Oct 2010. Noted keynote speakers, YALE PATTCHRISTIAN SCHEIDELER,DIETMAR TUTSCH, RAJ KUMAR BUYYA addressed the first conference which was a great success. The proceedings of the conference were published in IEEE Explore ( see link here).


The conference will be organized biennially. The second conference on Parallel, Distributed and Grid Computing (PDGC-2012)  was organized by Jaypee University of Information Technology, Waknaghat, Solan, Himachal Pradesh, India from 6th Dec 2012 to 8th Dec 2012.  Noted keynote speakers: IVAN STOJMENOVIC, PETER WIDMAYER, ASSAF SCHUSTER, NIKIL DUTT, ELIEZER DEKEL, SANJAY RANKA addressed the first conference which was a great success. The conference is technically sponsored by IEEE Delhi Section Computer Society Chapter and the proceedings of the conference were published in IEEE Explore ( see link here).
