What is PDCAT'2002?The International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing, Applications and Technologies (PDCAT) is a major forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present the latest research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all areas of parallel and distributed computing. Following PDCAT'00 in Hong Kong, PDCAT'01 in Taipei, PDCAT'02 will be held in Kanazawa, the home of Hokuriku in Japan.
Where is the Conference Location?
Where is Kanazawa?Kanazawa, the biggest city in the Hokuriku region has a population of 450,000, and is a castle town that was ruled over by the Maeda family for three centuries after the first lord Toshiie Maeda entered Kanazawa Castle in 1583. The development of its special products like rice, sake, sweets, etc. was due to its temperate and rainy climate with heavy snow in winter.
Kanazawa is surrounded by the Japan Alps, Hakusan National Park and Noto Peninsula National Park. Two rivers run through the city; the Sai is said to be a lively masculine river and the Asano to be a sweet, feminine river. Such a natural background of great beauty gives the city a relaxed feeling. The buildings that gave birth to a high level of Japanese traditional craftsmanship stand tranquilly and blend in with the modern atmosphere in Kanazawa to create a charming ancient castle town.
Due to many requests, the submission deadline for PDCAT'02 has been extended to March 15, 2002.
