Held in February of 2007, the 15th Euromicro Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-based Processing was comprised of 56 full presentations and 12 short presentations on recent developments in the theory and applications of parallel and distributed computing (1) The use of multiple computers networked throughout a wide geographical area, or the world via the Internet, in order to solve a single problem. See grid computing.
(2) The use of multiple computers in an enterprise rather than one centralized system. , all of which are presented in this volume by program chairs D'Ambra and Guarracin (both of the Instituto di Calcolo e Reti RETI - RTI ad Alte Prestazioni, Italy). They divided the conference program roughly equally between six "traditional" sessions and six "special" sessions. The former address advanced applications; network-based and internet-based computing; models and tools for programming environments distributed systems Distributed systems (computers)
A distributed system consists of a collection of autonomous computers linked by a computer network and equipped with distributed system software. ; languages, compilers, and runtime support systems; and parallel computer systems. The "special" sessions were devoted to next generation Web computing; parallel and distributed image processing image processing
Set of computational techniques for analyzing, enhancing, compressing, and reconstructing images. Its main components are importing, in which an image is captured through scanning or digital photography; analysis and manipulation of the image, accomplished , video processing Video processing techniques are used in video codecs, video players and other devices. For example—commonly only design and video processing is different in TV sets of different manufactures. , and multimedia; pervasive computing Refers to the use of computers in everyday life, including PDAs, smartphones and other mobile devices. It also refers to computers contained in commonplace objects such as cars and appliances and implies that people are unaware of their presence. environments and services; multi-agent and bio- inspired algorithms and applications for distributed systems; modeling, simulation, and optimization of peer-to-peer environments; and parallel and distributed data storage.
