   The Fourth International Workshop on Software Distributed Shared Memory

                                Organized At

      IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid

                   May 21-24, 2002 - Berlin, Germany


     In Corporation with the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)


                               Call for Papers


            With the emergence of clusters based on high performance
functionnalities (network, processing power....), DSM have a new role to
play by providing easiness of programming a shared space combined with
high performance architecture.

            The DSM 2002 workshop organized at the CCGrid'2002 symposium
will serve as a major forum to present and share the latest research
results of the work by international researchers, developers, and users.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * DSM Systems Implementation on clusters
   * DSM on High Peformance Networks
   * Memory Models
   * Consistencies Protocols
   * Hardware support
   * Compiler Support
   * Fault Tolerance
   * Applications on DSM systems
   * OpenMP Deployment
   * DSM Benchmarking
   * Performance and Debugging Tools

Paper Submission

Authors are encouraged to: 

    Submit a full paper (max: 6 pages in length, formatted to the IEEE
    Submit a research statement (max: 2 pages in length, formatted to the
IEEE format) 

Use a minimum of 10pt font, and printable on A4 paper. IEEE guidelines can
be found here. Please email your papers to laurent.lefevre at,
which is the preferred method for submission. You may also send paper
copies to: Laurent Lefevre

Full papers (category (a)) will be reviewed by the programme committee for
relevance, clarity and the novelty of results. If accepted, full papers
will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE Computer Society.
Authors may purchase two additional pages.

Short papers (category (b)) will be published in a seperate section. This
is to encourage work that is not yet advanced enough for a full paper. 

We also encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing
work, and application examplers, which demonstrate how DSM technology
could be effectively deployed. We also welcome practical work which
applies DSM in novel and interesting ways.
