Raj ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CCGrid2004: 4th IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid ****************************************************************************** Chicago, Illinois, USA 19-22 April http://www.mcs.anl.gov/ccgrid2004 CALL FOR PAPERS In 20 years from 1970 to 1990 the Internet and the UNIX operating system became ubiquitous in computer science laboratories and major universities. During the 10 years from 1990 to 2000, the Internet emerged as a global information utility, commodity microprocessors fueled the establishment of clusters as computing platforms, and open source Linux became a mainstream operating system. "Metacomputers," the concept of combining networked resources into distributed virtual computers, grew into the concept of "The Grid" with the vision that those distributed resources would be as straightforward to build and use as the ubiquitous electrical power grid. Today we are seeing a convergence of extremes. Terascale computers created from Open Source Linux commodity clusters. Multi-Gigabit/second networks providing higher bandwidth in the WAN than in the LAN, offering the possibility of providing applications with the effective illusion of "unlimited bandwidth." Open Grid Services Architecture, combining Web services designed to scale to millions of endpoints with High Performance Grid concepts designed to scale to TeraFlops endpoints. CCGrid2004, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (final approval pending), is designed to bring together international leaders who are pioneering researchers, developers, and users of extreme clusters, networks, and Grid architectures and applications. The symposium will also serve as a forum to present the latest work, and highlight related activities from around the world. CCGRid2004 is interested in topics including, but not limited to: * Hardware and Software (based on PCs, Workstations, SMPs or Supercomputers) * Middleware for Clusters and Grids * Dynamic Optical Network Architectures for Grid Computing * Parallel File Systems, including wide area file systems, and Parallel I/O * Scheduling and Load Balancing * Programming Models, Tools, and Environments * Performance Evaluation and Modeling * Resource Management and Scheduling * Computational, Data, and Information Grid Architectures and Systems * Grid Economies, Service Architectures, and Resource Exchange Architectures * Grid-based Problem Solving Environments * Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Grid Applications * Portal Computing / Science Portals ---------- PAPER SUBMISSION ---------- Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines, see: http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer. Paper submission instructions will be placed on: www.ccgrid.org/ccgrid2004/. Queries may be directed to the PC chair: Pete Beckman ([EMAIL PROTECTED]). It is expected that the proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA. ---------- WORKSHOPS/SPECIAL SESSIONS ---------- We invite proposals for organizing workshops or special sessions as part of CCGrid2004. These special events are expected to be highly specialized and focused, and all selected papers will be published in the CCGrid2004 proceedings. Those interested in organizing workshops or special sessions, please contact: Craig Lee ([EMAIL PROTECTED]), workshops/special sessions chair Those interested in proposing exhibits or tutorials, please contact: Steve Crumb ([EMAIL PROTECTED]), tutorials chair ---------- CHAIRS & COMMITTEES ---------- Conference General Chairs Charlie Catlett, Argonne National Laboratory, USA and Global Grid Forum Pete Beckman, Argonne National Laboratory, USA Honorary Chair Ian Foster, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago, USA Program Committee Chair Pete Beckman, Argonne National Laboratory, USA Program Committee Vice-Chairs David Abramson, Monash University, Australia Sameer Shende (Univ Oregon, USA) ---------- IMPORTANT DATES ---------- 10 Nov 2003 Papers Due 1 Dec 2003 Workshop/Tutorial/Exhibit Proposals Due 20 Dec 2003 Notification of Paper Acceptance 19 Jan 2004 Camera Ready Papers Due ------------------------------------------------------------ CCGRID 2004 PROGRAM COMMITTEE MEMBERS -------------------------- David Abramson (Monash Univ., Australia) Greg Astfalk (Hewlett-Packard, USA) Ruth Aydt (NCSA, USA) Henri Bal (Vrije Univ., The Netherlands) Pete Beckman (ANL, USA) Taisuke Boku (Univ.
