    Final Call for Papers: The 2004 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
    Tuesday April 13 2004 @ 04:34PM EDT

    **                               CALL FOR PAPERS                              **

    Cluster 2004 The 2004 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing September 20-23, 2004 Town and Country Hotel, San Diego, California, USA



    In less than a decade, commodity clusters have become mainstream and cost-effective computing platforms for executing a wide range of computation-, data-, and transaction-oriented parallel applications. In spite of countless deployed platforms and resounding application successes, many research and development challenges remain for achieving higher performance, scalability, and usability. The IEEE TFCC Cluster 2004 conference, to be held in beautiful San Diego, provides an open forum for researchers, practitioners, and users to present and discuss issues, directions, and results that will shape the future of cluster computing.

    SCOPE -----

    Cluster 2004 welcomes paper and poster submissions from engineers and scientists in academia and industry describing original research work in all areas of cluster computing. In addition, Cluster 2004 will welcome proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held concurrently with the conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Cluster Middleware: - Single-System Image Services - Software Environments and Tools - Standard Software for Clusters - I/O Libraries, File Systems, and Distributed RAID

    Cluster Networking: - High-Speed System Interconnects - Lightweight Communication Protocols - Fast Message Passing Libraries

    Cluster Management and Maintenance: - Cluster Security and Reliability - Tools for Managing Clusters - Cluster Job and Resource Management - High-Availability Cluster Solutions

    Applications: - Scientific and E-Commerce Apps - Data Distribution and Load Balancing - Scheduling and Parallel Algorithms - Innovative Cluster Applications - Tools and Environments

    Performance Analysis and Evaluation: - Benchmarking and Profiling Tools - Performance Prediction and Modeling - Analysis and Visualization

    Grid Computing and Clusters: - Grid / Clusters Integration - Network-Based Distributed Computing - Mobile Agents and Java for Clusters/Grids

    TECHNICAL PAPERS ----------------

    Paper Format: Not to exceed 25 double-spaced, numbered pages (including title, author affiliations, abstract, keywords, figures, tables and bibliographical references) using 12 point font on 8.5x11-inch pages with 1-inch margins all around.

    Submission: An on-line submission page will be activated on the conference web site two weeks before the submission deadline. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file. Hard copy submissions will not be accepted.

    POSTERS -------

    Augmenting direct submissions will be technical paper submissions that were not accepted but are recommended by the committee for poster presentation. (The latter of course requires authorization by the author(s).)

    Abstract Format: 1 page PDF including Title, Authors with their affiliations, and a 200 word, single-spaced abstract.

    Submission: via email to Richard Barrett (rbarrett@lanl.gov)

    JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE ---------------------

    Authors of the best papers from the conference will be invited to submit an expanded version of their papers for possible publication in a special issue of the International Journal of High Performance Computing and Networking (IJHPCN), which will appear in 2005.
