The 2014 International Conference of Parallel and Distributed Computing (ICPDC'14) will take place in London, U.K., 2-4 July, 2014.

The conference ICPDC'14 is held under the World Congress on Engineering 2014. The WCE 2014 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. The last IAENG conferences attracted more than one thousand participants from over 30 countries. All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 978-988-19252-7-5). The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books.
