This topic is devoted to communication in parallel computers, networks of workstations, and more widely distributed systems such as grids. All aspects of communication will be examined, including the design and implementation of interconnection networks and communication protocols, advances in system area and storage area networks, routing and communication algorithms, and the communication costs of parallel and distributed algorithms. Contributed papers are sought that present significant, original advances in the theory and/or practice of communication in on-chip interconnects, parallel computers, and distributed systems, up to grid computing infrastructures. Contributions addressing novel aspects such as techniques to reduce power consumption and/or heat dissipation are particularly welcome.
