Each paper will be reviewed by at least 3 prominent researchers who are conversant in parallel computing and information security. Extended versions of selected papers will be recommended to special issues of some SCI-indexed international journals. The tentative journals include Tsinghua Science and Technology, Computers and Electrical Engineering, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, Computer Science and Information Systems, IEEE Access. The invited papers will go through the normal reviewing process.
