CCGrid 2006: 6th IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the 

                             16-19 May 2006




                 !!Submission Deadline: 15th November 2005!!




CCGrid 2006 is the sixth in a series of successful international conferences 

for the first time will take place in the heart of South-East Asia - 

The conference will be held at Singapore Management University in the centre 

Singapore. The past years have seen tremendous challenges with the 

of Web Services and Grid Technology. There have been major initiatives -

internationally as well as locally -  within the community that has taken up

these challenges. Grid Technology enables us to make a major change in the

paradigm for conducting our work with the holy grail of - computing on tap- 

which in particular includes collaborative sharing. With this in mind CCGrid 

provides researchers and practitioners with an excellent opportunity to 

their research and experience at the cross-roads of Grid Technology. The 

of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

-  Web Services Flow Languages

-  Programming Models, Tools & Environments

-  Peer-to-Peer computing

-  Information Services

-  Resource Exchange Architectures

-  Grid-based Problem Solving Environments

-  Scientific, Engineering and Commercial Grid Applications

-  Middleware for Clusters and Grids

-  Parallel File Systems & Wide Area File Systems

-  Scheduling and Load Balancing

-  Performance Evaluation and Modelling

-  Resource Management and Scheduling

-  Computational Data and Information Grid

-  Architectures and Systems

-  Grid Economies and Service Architectures



Authors are invited to submit a full length 8-page paper of double column 

using single spaced 10 pt size type on 8.5- x11-  paper, as per IEEE 

guidelines. Detailed paper submission instructions will be placed on the

conference web-page. It is expected that the proceedings will be published 

the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, and will be made available online 

the IEEE Digital Library.



Those wishing to organise workshops, present tutorials on emerging topics or

participate in the industry track are invited to contact the respective 

for further information.
