                   (CCGrid 2005)
                      9-12 May 2005
                           Cardiff, UK



Commodity-based clusters and Grid computing technologies are rapidly
developing, and are key components in the emergence of a novel
service-based fabric for high capability computing. Cluster-powered
Grids not only provide access to cost-effective problem-solving power,
but also promise to enable a more collaborative approach to the use of
distributed resources, and new economic products and services.
CCGrid2005, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society is designed to bring
together international leaders who are pioneering researchers,
developers, and users of clusters, networks, and Grid architectures and
applications. The symposium will also serve as a forum to present the
latest work, and highlight related activities from around the world.
CCGrid2005 is interested in topics including, but not limited to:

o    Hardware and Software (based on PCs, Workstations, SMPs or
o    Middleware for Clusters and Grids
o    Dynamic Optical Network Architectures for Grid Computing
o    Parallel File Systems, including wide area file systems, and
Parallel I/O
o    Scheduling and Load Balancing
o    Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
o    Performance Evaluation and Modeling
o    Resource Management and Scheduling
o    Computational, Data, and Information Grid Architectures and Systems
o    Grid Economies, Service Architectures, and Resource Exchange
o    Grid-based Problem Solving Environments
o    Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Grid Applications
o    Portal Computing / Science Portals
