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 
including middleware, networking, algorithms and applications, resource 
platform deployment and maintenance, and integration of clusters into 
grids. Cluster 2005 provides an open forum for researchers, practitioners 
and users
to present and discuss issues, directions, and results that will shape the 
of cluster computing. This years event is to be held in and around Boston / 
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:

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, 
Kurt Keville
<poster at cluster2005.org>. 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.
