Dear Colleagues,

Please find enclosed cfp of the 2001 version of Cluster Computing symposium
with scope extended to Grid. The 2000 symposium is held in Beijing, China
along with HPC ASIA'2000, May 14-17. A well received symposium opening 
keynote was delivered by Prof. Jack Dongarra. The next year symposium 
scheduled to be held in Brisbane, Australia, 16-18 May 2001:

 CCGrid2001: IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid

is going to be  interesting one as a number of key leaders (including
Jack Dongarra, Greg Pfister, Albert Zomaya,...*see cfp*) in this area 
are actively involved in symposium organisational efforts.

The CCGrid'2001 is going to feature special sessions/workshops and those 
interested in organising one, please contact me/PC-chair--we will let you know
the logistics involved in organising special sessions/workshops.

I would like to take this opportunity to request you to consider this
symposium as a venue for presenting your research. I also request your help 
in publicising the enclosed cfp among your colleagues and encourage them 
to submit their work. 

Thank you very much.

Sincerely Yours,

CCGrid2001: IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid

(IEEE support pending final approval)

16-18 May 2001 in Brisbane, Australia


The growing popularity of the Internet along with the availability of
powerful computers and  high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components
are changing the way we do computing.  Two advanced computing themes have
emerged: "cluster computing" and "global network  computing" (grid

CCGrid2001, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (final approval pending),
is designed to  bring together international cluster and network-based
computing researchers, developers,  and users. The symposium will also serve
as a forum to present the latest work, and  highlight related activities
from around the world.

The following topics concerning Cluster or Grid computing are of interest,
but not limited to:

* Hardware and Software (based on PCs, Workstations, SMPs or Supercomputers)
* Middleware for Clusters and Grids
* File Systems and Parallel I/O
* Scheduling and Load Balancing
* Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
* Communication systems such as: Message Passing Systems e.g. MPI and PVM or
Shared Memory  Systems
* Programming Languages and System Software for supporting Grids and
* System Management and Administration
* Performance Evaluation and Modelling
* Resource Management and Scheduling
* Computational, Data, and Information Grid
* Computational Economy
* Problem Solving Environments
* Data Structure and Algorithms
* Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Applications for Clusters and
* Portal Computing / Science Portals


Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 10 pages of double
column text using  single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages,
as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript  guidelines, see: Authors should submit a
PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer.
Paper submission instructions will be placed on Queries may be directed to the PC chair:
p.roe at It is expected that the proceedings will be published by
the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA.


We invite proposals for organising workshops or special sessions as part of
CCGrid2001. These special events are expected to be highly specialiased and
focused, and all 
selected papers will be published in the CCGrid2001 proceedings. Those
interested in organising special events, please contact workshops/special
sessions chair.
