[Linux-cluster] Cluster 2005 Boston Paper deadline extended to May 21




The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing September 27-30, 2005 Burlington Marriott Boston, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA http://cluster2005.org info cluster2005 org

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

SCOPE
-----
