      Dear All,

      Please find enclosed CCGrid 2004 conference Call for Papers. The deadline for
      submission is approaching near (Nov 10, 2003) & I would like to encourage
      you to consider submitting a paper. Also, please share the cfp with your
      friends (even relatives!), students, and colleagues working in cluster and
      grid computing research areas.


      4th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid (CCGrid 2004)
      Chicago, Illinois, USA
      April 19-22, 2004

      Call for Papers

      ***** 10 Nov 2003 Papers Due *******


      In 20 years from 1970 to 1990 the Internet and the UNIX operating system became ubiquitous
      in computer science laboratories and 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 wide area networks, and the Open
      Grid Services Architecture, combining Web services designed to scale to millions of
      endpoints with High Performance Grid concepts designed to scale to TeraFlop endpoints.
      Together, they are facilitating a new wave of computer science research and development.

      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


      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 this webpage.

      It is expected that the proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA.
