7-10 October 2019, Saint-Petersburg, Russia


Parallel and Distributed Algorithms for Artificial Intelligence Applications (PDAAIA)



Topics of interest:


  • Parallel or distributed algorithms for training deep neural networks
  • Parallel algorithms for recurrent neural networks
  • Parallel algorithms for planning problems
  • Distributed algorithms for intelligent modular robots
  • Parallel algorithms for signal processing and big data
  • Parallel algorithms for GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi and multi-core CPUs
  • Parallel algorithms on distributed memory architectures


Call for papers:

IIDC-2019 Special Session on Parallel and Distributed Algorithms for Artificial Intelligence Applications (PDAAIA) aims at presenting new research works on accelerating the training of neural networks or solving difficult artificial intelligence problems like planning problems thanks to parallel or distributed algorithms. The special session emphasizes on algorithms dedicated to computing accelerators like GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi as well as multi-core CPUs and also FPGA. Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous architectures and distributed memory architectures are considered as well as distributed algorithms for applications like modular robotic systems.

Potential authors are invited to submit original papers. Papers should be at most 10 pages long and must be formatted accordingly. Papers must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.


Submissions and reviews will be handled via EasyChair system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=idc2019


All submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the Technical Program Committee.

All accepted papers will be included in the IDC-2019 Symposium Proceedings, which will be published by

Springer as part of their series Studies in Computational Intelligence.
