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

                             CLUSTER 2002
      IEEE Fourth International Conference on Cluster Computing

                        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.
