Commodity clusters today provide a convenient and cost-effective
platform for 
executing complex computation-, data- and/or transaction-centric
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 future 
of cluster computing. This years event is to be held in and around
Boston / Cambridge,
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
   all areas of cluster computing. In addition, Cluster 2005 will
