Held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2009
http://www.cluster2009.org

Friday September 4, 2009
New Orleans, LA, USA

Call for Papers

High-performance computing simulations and large scientific  
experiments such
as those in high energy physics generate tens of terabytes of data,  
and these
data sizes grow each year. Existing systems for storing, managing, and
analyzing data are being pushed to their limits by these applications,  
and new
techniques are necessary to enable efficient data processing for future
simulations and experiments.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for engineers and
scientists to present and discuss their most recent work related to the
storage, management, and analysis of data for scientific workloads.  
Emphasis
is placed on forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges of
storage at extreme scale or to provide better abstractions for use in
scientific workloads.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- parallel file systems
- scientific databases
- active storage
- scientific I/O middleware
- extreme scale storage

Registration fee for the workshop will be included as part of the  
Cluster 2009

Workshop: The impact and influence of Web 2.0 on e-Research  
Infrastructure, Services and Applications
http://research3.org/events/workshop_one.php

IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (Cluster 2009)
Friday 4th September 2009, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Call for papers

The number of Web 2.0 services and applications, widely used by  
Internet users,
academics, industry and enterprise, are growing rapidly, which  
demonstrates its
solid foundations. These technologies and services are based on the  
open standards
that underpin the Internet and Web, and are used in many forms, e.g.  
blogs, wikis,
mashups, social websites, podcasting and content tagging. This field  
is having a
significant impact on distributed infrastructure and applications, and  
on the way users
and developers interact. It is important to understand the influence  
of this theme
because Web 2.0 is providing endless opportunities in academia; the  
general public,
which in turn is driving the business agenda in enterprises and  
industry, is increasingly
using it. This workshop aims to deliver a greater understanding of the  
influence and
changes to be expected regarding e-Research infrastructure,  
applications and the way
users and developers interact.

Topics of Interest:
- Infrastructure and Services
   - The use of Cloud-based services,
   - Using RESTful services,
   - The applications of mash-ups and using other Web 2.0 technologies,
   - Web 2.0 security versus existing security,
   - Using virtualisation technologies,
   - Compare and contrast existing services with emerging Web 2.0  
technologies,
   - Combining the Semantic Web with Web 2.0.
- Applications
   - Using data and services mash-ups,
   - The development and use of gadgets with applications,
   - Adapting applications to more usable and user friendly,
   - Collaboration, joint development and the integration of social  
web sites,
   - Using blogs, wikis and other Web 2.0 technologies with  
applications,
   - Using Web 2.0 technologies with applications.

Paper submission:
Paper Format: Since the camera-ready version of accepted papers must be
compliant with the IEEE Xplore format for publication, submitted  
papers must
conform to the following Xplore layout, page limit, and font size.

Workshop on High Performance Interconnects for Distributed Computing  
(HPI-DC’09)
http://www.cercs.gatech.edu/hpidc2009

in conjunction with Cluster 2009
August 31, 2009
New Orleans, Louisiana

Call for Papers

The emergence of 10.0 GigE and above, InfiniBand and other high- 
performance
interconnection technologies, programmable NICs and networking  
platforms, and
protocols like DDP and RDMA over IP, make it possible to create  
tightly linked
systems across physical distances that exceed those of traditional  
single cluster or
server systems. These technologies can deliver communication  
capabilities that
achieve the performance levels needed by high end applications in  
enterprise
systems and like those produced by the high performance computing  
community.
Furthermore, the manycore nature of next generation platforms and the  
creation of
distributed cloud computing infrastructure will greatly increase the  
demand for high
performance communication capabilities over wide area distances.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the confluence of distributed
computing and communications technologies with high performance  
interconnects,
as applicable or applied to realistic high end applications. The  
intent is to create a
venue that will act as a bridge between researchers developing tools  
and platforms
for high-performance distributed computing, end user applications  
seeking high
performance solutions, and technology providers aiming to improve  
interconnect and
networking technologies for future systems. The hope is to foster  
knowledge creation
and intellectual interchanges between HPC and Cloud computing end  
users and
technology developers, in the specific domain of high performance  
distributed
interconnects.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Hardware/software architectures for communication infrastructures  
for HPC
and Cloud Computing
- Data and control protocols for interactive and large data volume  
applications
- Novel devices and technologies to enhance interconnect properties
- Interconnect-level issues when extending high performance beyond  
single
machines, including  architecture, protocols, services, QoS, and  
security
- Remote storage (like iSCSI), remote databases, and datacenters, etc.
- Development tools, programming environments and models (like PGAS,
OpenShmem, Hadoop, etc.), ranging from programming language support to
simulation environments.


IMPORTANT DATES
Paper submission:  June 5th, 2009
Notification:   July 10th, 2009
Final manuscript:  July 29th, 2009

Workshop: Parallel Programming on Accelerator Clusters
http://www.checs.eng.vt.edu/ppac09

Workshop held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2009
August 31, 2009, New Orleans

CALL FOR PAPERS

Accelerator-based parallel architectures, heterogeneous multi-core  
processors, FPGAs
and GPUs, are rapidly becoming mainstream components for cluster  
computing. While the
potential of accelerators for addressing problems such as memory  
latency and bandwidth
has long been recognized, accelerators present several challenges to  
programmers and
cluster systems designers. The PPAC workshop will bring together  
researchers from
academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in parallel  
programming
models, languages, tools, system software and application development  
for clusters based
on accelerators. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Programming models for accelerator-based clusters, including systems  
using GPUs,
heterogeneous multi-core processors and FPGAs.
- Compiler and runtime support for accelerator-based clusters,  
including support for
scheduling, communication and memory management.
- Operating systems and virtualization support for accelerator-based  
clusters.
- Performance evaluation of accelerator-based clusters, in particular  
with relation to
conventional homogeneous clusters.
- Performance analysis, profiling and debugging tools.
- Application studies on accelerator-based clusters.
- Power and energy-efficiency of accelerator-based clusters.

Submissions
   Papers due:     June 15, 2009
   Author notification: July 15, 2009
   Final papers due: July 31, 2009



Submitted manuscripts (8 pages max) should be formatted according to  
IEEE Cluster
proceedings guidelines. See workshop homepage for further details.
