The 15th Workshop on Advances in Parallel and Distributed Computational Models (APDCM) – held in conjunction with the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) on May 20-24, 2013, in Boston, USA, – aims to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in the field of the parallel and distributed computational models.

The APDCM workshop has a history of attracting participation from reputed researchers world- wide. The program committee has encouraged the authors of accepted papers to submit full-versions of their manuscripts to the International Journal of Networking and Computing (IJNC) after the workshop. After a thorough reviewing process, with extensive discussions, eleven articles on various topics have been selected for publication on the IJNC special issue on APDCM.

On behalf of the APDCM workshop, we would like to express our appreciation for the large efforts of reviewers who reviewed papers submitted to the special issue. Likewise, we thank all the authors for submitting their excellent manuscripts to this special issue. We also express our sincere thanks to the editorial board of the International Journal of Networking and Computing, in particular, to the Editor-in-chief Professor Koji Nakano. This special issue would not have been possible without his support.
