Joint Symposium on Parallel Processing is a forum on parallel processing where researchers on all fields in parallel processing, including theory, software, architecture, and applications, meet and exchange their ideas. This year, it will be held May 29, 2002 thru 31 in Tsukuba. We invite papers describing original/proven ideas, those reporting on experiences and implementation efforts, as well as those describing developing and ongoing work.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


JSPP2002 is different from the past series of the symposia in several ways. Read the following carefully before you send a paper.
  1. We invite regular papers in two categories, namely "long papers" and "short papers." Long papers should be no longer than 8 pages and short papers 4 pages. In addition, we solicit posters.
  2. All submissions must be done electronically (through
  3. The category "long papers" solicits high quality papers that bring new research results. Authors submitting to this category can co-submit the same material to "IPSJ transactions on high performance systems (HPS)". This way papers in this category can appear in the transaction with a prompt reviewing process (decisions on acceptance/rejection are made independently).
  4. The program commitee will award the best student paper from the long papers.
  5. The category "short papers" welcomes not only accomplished work, but also work in progress with original ideas and/or methodologies. JSPP2002 is meant to be a forum in which these developing ideas are exchanged and discussed.
  6. Both long papers and short papers should describe original work that has not been published elsewhere.
  7. Oral presentations for the accepted long and short papers are scheduled in the symposium program.
  8. Posters accept, among others, work in early stages and proposals. JSPP2002 provides opportunities where participants can exchange and discuss ideas in an informal fashion.
  9. Topics of interest include not only traditional prallel processing (e.g., parallel architectures and scientific applications) but also emerging topics such as wide area distributed computing, mass storage systems, bioinformatics, and security. The program committee specifically encourages researchers in these fields to send papers broadly relevant to parallel processing.
