The Cluster 2004 conference, to be held in beautiful San Diego, 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. The Cluster series of conferences is one of the flagship events sponsored by the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC) since its inception in 1999. The competition among refereed papers was particularly strong this year, with 48 papers being selected as full papers from the 150 submitted papers. Besides the technical paper presentation, there will be three exciting keynote speakers, four tutorials, one workshop and exhibits to be arranged during the conference period.


San Diego is California's second largest city and the United States' seventh largest, San Diego boasts a citywide population of nearly 1.3 million residents and more than 2.8 million residents countywide. Within its borders of 4,200 sq. miles, San Diego County encompasses 18 incorporated cities and numerous other charming neighborhoods and communities, including downtown's historic Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, Coronado, La Jolla, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Escondido, La Mesa, Hillcrest, Barrio Logan, Chula Vista and more. Known for its near-idyllic climate, 70 miles of pristine beaches and dazzling array of world-class family attractions, including the World-Famous San Diego Zoo <http://www.sandiegozoo.org/>  and Wild Animal Park <http://www.sandiegozoo.org/wap/visitor_info.html> , SeaWorld San Diego <http://www.seaworld.com/sw_index.aspx>  and LEGOLAND California <http://www.lego.com/legoland/california/> , San Diego offers a wide variety of things to see and do, appealing to guests from around the world.


Cluster 2004 will be held at the Town and Country Resort <http://www.towncountry.com/> , located in Mission Valley, just 10 minutes from the airport, right next to the San Diego Trolley, the Fashion Valley Mall, and the Riverwalk Golf course. Reservations should be made with the hotel directly. The conference rate of US$129.00 (which you can obtain by mentioning the "IEEE Cluster 2004" conference) will be guaranteed until August 28, 5PM PST. After this date rooms reserved for Cluster'04 will be given to anyone on a first-come first-serve basis. The Hotel online registration is available from http://grail.sdsc.edu/cluster2004/ <http://grail.sdsc.edu/cluster2004/>  where you can also find the online conference registration and the Cluster 2004 advanced program.


We look forward meeting you in San Diego!
