      CLUSTER 2002: CALL FOR PAPERS!! (papers due: April 12, 2002)
      ============================================================

      CLUSTER 2002
      IEEE Fourth International Conference on Cluster Computing
      http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/cluster2002/

      September 23-26, 2002

      Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza
      Chicago, IL


      COTS cluster computing (including Beowulfs, SMPs, MPPs, terascale
      systems, and metacomputing Grids) has emerged as a major strategy for
      delivering high performance to technical and commercial
      applications. The superior cost effectiveness and flexibility achieved
      through clusters is now redefining how parallel and distributed
      computing is being accomplished today.

      Cluster 2002 will provide a forum for researchers to share recent
      results and new developments in hardware, software, and
      applications. The conference will be held in Chicago on September
      23-26, 2002.

      Cluster 2002 is sponsored by the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing
      and organized by Argonne National Laboratory and the National Center
      for Supercomputing Applications.
