Artificial Intelligence in Parallel and Distributed Computing

Submission Deadline: 15 January 2020

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Artificial Intelligence in Parallel and Distributed Computing.

Traditional computation is driven by parallel accelerators or distributed computation nodes in order to improve computing performance, save energy, and decrease delays in accessing memory. Recently, artificial intelligent algorithms, frameworks, and computing models are growing to help with high computational performance.

To coordinate communication among professional researchers, engineers and students, and to attract and filter high quality academic contributions recommended from the International Symposium on Advanced Parallel Processing Technology (APPT 2019,, we have organized this Special Section in IEEE Access on “Artificial Intelligence in Parallel and Distributed Computing” (AIPDC). High quality contributions within the field but not presented at the conference are highly encouraged and also considered in this Special Section.

To tackle issues and challenges from the new era of artificial intelligence on computer systems, this Special Section will present innovative solutions and recent advances in the fields of intelligent algorithms, parallel computing methodologies, distributed computing models, new computer architectures, cloud computing, data centers, and so on. We are hoping the articles in this Special Section will guide future applications and research on computer architectures and computer systems.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Parallel Architectures and Hardware Systems
  • Parallel Software
  • Distributed and Cloud Computing
  • Parallel Algorithms and Applications
  • GPU neuromorphic computing, intelligent control and computing on FPGAs


We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
