Cluster 2005 Info writes "Cluster 2005 - The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing. September 27-30, 2005 at Burlington Marriott Boston, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA

Commodity clusters today provide a convenient and cost-effective platform for
executing complex computation-, data- and/or transaction-centric applications.
Many research and development challenges remain in all areas of cluster computing,
including middleware, networking, algorithms and applications, resource management,
platform deployment and maintenance, and integration of clusters into computational
grids. Cluster 2005 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. This years event is to be held in and around Boston / Cambridge,
see the upcoming Call for Participation for more details.


      Cluster 2005 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 2005 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 and File Systems

      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

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

      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


Format for submission: Full paper drafts, not to exceed 25 double-spaced, numbered pages
(including title, author affiliations, abstract, keywords, figures, tables and
bibliographic references) using 12 point font on 8.5x11-inch pages with 1-inch margins
all around. A web based submission mechanisms 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 can not be accepted.


Format for submission: 1 page abstract in PDF including names of authors, their affiliation
and a 200 word abstract sent as an e-mail attachment to the poster chair. Poster presentations will also be offered
  to the authors of technical papers that were not accepted for oral presentation but are
recommended by the committee for this form of publication.

Cluster 2005 is considering proposals for colocated workshops. See deadline for proposals below.
