The IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
Sutton Place Hotel, Newport Beach, California, USA
Oct. 8-11, 2001

Sponsored by: The IEEE Computer Society, through the Task Force on
Cluster Computing (TFCC)

The rapid emergence of COTS-based Cluster Computing as a major strategy
for delivering high performance to technical and commercial
applications is driven by the superior cost effectiveness and
flexibility achievable through ensembles of PCs, workstations, and
servers. Cluster computing, such as Beowulf class, SMP clusters, and
ASCI machines is redefining the manner in which parallel and
distributed computing is being accomplished today and is the focus of
important research in hardware, software, and application development.

This year, for the first time, Cluster 2001 merges five popular
professional conferences and workshops: IWCC, PC-NOW, CCC, JPC4 and
German CC into an integrated, large-scale, international forum to be
held in Northern America. Last year's conference, IEEE Cluster 2000,
was held in Chemnitz, Germany.

The program includes an introduction by Thomas Sterling (Caltech/JPL),
keynotes by Steve Oberlin (Unlimited Inc), Hans Zima (University of
Vienna), and Charles Seitz (Myricom), over 46 invited and contributed
papers, three panel sessions, a poster session, an exhibition, and six
tutorials.  Additionally, several social events are planned, including
a banquet on the Queen Mary in nearby Long Beach.
