The Fifteenth IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Distributed
Computing (HPDC) will be a forum for presenting the latest research
findings on the design and use of parallel and distributed systems for
high end computing, collaboration, data analysis, and other innovative
applications. Scientific content will cover all aspects of
high-performance distributed computing, Grids, and global computing

HPDC'2006 organizers are very pleased to propose HPDC participants a rich
set of scientific events: 3 conference days + 3 Keynote addresses + 2
workshop days + 1 "hot topic session" + 2 Poster sessions.
