Introduction

Following very successful previous editions held in different venues since 2002, the 21st IEEE ISPDC conference will be hosted by the University of Basel in the city of Basel, Switzerland.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants are our priority. The ISPDC organizers are closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic situation in Switzerland and in other countries over the world. Recent developments are favorable for an in-person ISPDC 2022 event.

The ISPDC 2022 conference aims at presenting original and unpublished research that will target state-of-the-art as well as emerging topics pertaining to the field of Parallel and Distributed Computing paradigms and applications. Parallel and Distributed Computing is an important research area today and has a strong contribution to the advancements in science, engineering, and society at large. Its evolution is characterized by the continuous development of new approaches in the modeling, design, analysis, evaluation, and programming of parallel and distributed computing applications and systems.

The goal of the 21st IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC 2022) is to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners for the purpose of sharing their experiences in the development of new algorithms, applications, architectures for parallel and distributed computing, as well as modeling and simulation, visualization, and data analytics.
