This book presents the proceedings of the Virtual International Conference on Advances in Parallel Computing Technologies and Applications (ICAPTA 2021), held on the 15th and 16th of April 2021 in Chennai, India, at Justice Basheer Ahmed Sayeed College for Women, jointly with KAS Innovative India.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for sharing knowledge in various aspects of parallel computing in communications systems and networking, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, and vertical application areas. The recent developments of parallel computing in various fields of application are used to handle the huge volume of data to provide solutions in a faster manner. Furthermore, the newer and innovative ideas are well groomed with adequate technical support in computer communication to enhance the decisions in intellectual aspects. It also provides a premier platform for scientists, researchers, practitioners and academics to present and discuss about the most recent innovations, trends and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered in this field.
ICAPTA 2021, has recorded more than 100 submissions of which 52 full length papers were accepted based on the reviews and comments from subject experts. The topics include parallel computing in communication, machine learning intelligence for parallel computing and parallel computing for software services in theoretical and practical aspects. The main program of the two-day conference included a chief guest address, two invited talks, two keynote talks and four technical sessions for paper presentations.
We hope that all participants have taken the opportunity not only to exchange their knowledge, experiences and ideas but also to make contacts for their ongoing research in new directions.
Finally, we would like to thank all the authors as well as all the committee members, reviewer sand session chairs for their support, enthusiasm and time, which helped to make ICAPTA 2021 a successful conference during this time of the pandemic. We express our sincere thanks to the directors of KAS Innovative India for co-organizing this event.
