          SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO

                      DECEMBER 31, 2004


Welcome to the Fifth Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing! 

The Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing is a forum that 
focuses on computer systems that utilize thousands of "processing 
elements" that work together to solve a single problem.  As this 
is a workshop, the focus is on identifying new and novel ideas 
rather than proving incremental advances.  By concurrently 
exploring architecture, programming models, algorithms and 
applications, this workshop seeks to advance the state-of-the-art
of MPP systems.

The Fifth Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing (WMPP'05) 
builds on the success of the four previous successful workshops, 
held as part of IPDPS'01, IPDPS'02, IPDPS'03, and IPDPS'04 respectively. 
WMPP has picked up momentum and is now pushing the limits of 
single day format. Technical presentations have come from industry 
(e.g. IBM), from national laboratories (e.g. UCAR, JPL), and from 
academic institutions from across the globe. The First and Second 
workshops featured invited keynote talks by Peter Kogge of Notre 
Dame and David Bader of the University of New Mexico, respectively. 
The Third workshop featured an invited keynote talk by Thomas 
Sterling of Cal Tech and NASA JPL.  The Fourth workshop featured 
an invited keynote talk by Mootaz Elnozahy, Senior Manager and 
Master Inventor at IBM Research in Austin Texas.  Following the 
usual practice at IPDPS, all WMPP papers have been published with 
the paper abstracts in a hardcopy volume and the complete paper in 
an accompanying CD-ROM. 

===================================================================

Topics of Interest Include:
--------------------------
Architectures and Experimental Systems
+	Architecturally, how can a massive amount of "processing 
	elements" communicate and coordinate their activities?  
+	What is a "processing element" and how are they interconnected 
	and coordinated?
+	What metrics can we use to demonstrate new and novel MPP systems?
+	How can we model and simulate MPP systems?
 
Parallelism, Programming Models and Algorithms
+	Where is the parallelism (i.e. which part of what problems 
	should be placed in the parallel paradigm)?
+	How can we program MPP systems?  
+	How can we improve the productivity of MPP systems?
+	How can we exploit characteristics of certain problem domains 
	to improve the system's performance, programmability and/or 
	user productivity?
+	How can we debug MPP programs?

Perspectives, Positions and Problems
+	Where are we now?  What have we learned positively and negatively 
	about our current systems?  
+	How are we doing with our large systems?  
+	What must be changed to utilize "massively parallel" systems?
+	What are the problems that need to be addressed?

Future Factors?
+	What are some of the future issues that we need to start 
	considering now to achieve MPP systems?  
+	How can we utilize power more efficiently?  
+	How can systems handle unreliable components?   
+	Can we program our way around some of these issues or must 
	the system appear to be reliable?

We hope that you will enjoy the workshop!

         Announcement and call for papers       

=====================================================

Technically co-sponsored by the International Neural Networks Society,
the European Neural Networks Society, the IEEE Computational
Intelligence Society, the IEEE Region 8 (to be confirmed), the IEEE
Benelux Section.

The call for papers for the ESANN'2005 conference is available on the
Web:
       http://www.dice.ucl.ac.be/esann
For those of you who maintain WWW pages including lists of related ANN
sites: we would appreciate if you could add the above URL to your list;
thank you very much!

We try as much as possible to avoid multiple sendings of this call for
papers; however we apologize if you receive this e-mail twice, despite
our precautions.

ESANN'2005 is organized in collaboration with the UCL (Universite
catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve) and the KULeuven (Katholiek
Universiteit Leuven).

Scope and topics
----------------
Since its first happening in 1993, the European Symposium on Artificial
Neural Networks has become the reference for researchers on fundamentals
and theoretical aspects of artificial neural networks. Each year, around
100 specialists attend ESANN, in order to present their latest results
and comprehensive surveys, and to discuss the future developments in
this field.

The ESANN'2005 conference will focus on fundamental aspects of ANNs:
theory, models, learning algorithms, mathematical and statistical
aspects, in the context of function approximation, classification, data
analysis, control, time-series prediction, signal processing, vision,
etc.  Papers on links and comparisons between ANNs and other domains of
research (such as statistics, signal processing, biology, psychology,
evolutive learning, bio-inspired systems, etc.) are encouraged.

Papers will be presented orally (no parallel sessions) and in poster
sessions; all posters will be complemented by a short oral presentation
during a plenary session.  The topic of the paper decides if it better
fits into an oral or a poster session, not its quality. The selection of
posters will be identical to oral presentations, and both will be
printed in the same way in the proceedings. Nevertheless, authors have
the choice to indicate their choice for oral or poster presentation
only.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics covered during the
ESANN conferences:
- Models and architectures
- Learning algorithms
- Theory
- Mathematics
- Statistical data analysis
- Classification
- Approximation of functions
- Time series forecasting
- Nonlinear dimension reduction
- Multi-layer Perceptrons
- RBF networks
- Self-organizing maps
- Vector quantization
- Support Vector Machines
- Recurrent networks
- Fuzzy neural nets
- Hybrid networks
- Bayesian neural nets
- Cellular neural networks
- Signal processing
- Independent component analysis
- Natural and artificial vision
- Adaptive control
- Identification of non-linear dynamical systems
- Biologically plausible networks
- Bio-inspired systems
- Cognitive psychology
- Evolutiv learning
- Adaptive behaviour

Special sessions
----------------
Special sessions will be organized by renowned scientists in their
respective fields. Papers submitted to these sessions are reviewed
according to the same rules as any other submission. Authors who submit
papers to one of these sessions are invited to mention it on the author
submission form; nevertheless, submissions to the special sessions must
follow the same format, instructions and deadlines as any other
submission, and must be sent to the same address.

The following special sessions will be organized at ESANN'2005:

1. Kernel methods and the exponential family
   A. Smola, National ICT Australia, ANU (Australia) 
   S. Canu, PSI, CNRS - INSA Rouen (France)

architectural style, its canals, and its pleasant atmosphere.

The conference will be organized in a hotel located near the centre
(walking distance) of the town. There is no obligation for the
participants to stay in this hotel. Hotels of all level of comfort and
price are available in Bruges; there is a possibility to book a room in
the hotel of the conference at a preferential rate through the
conference secretariat. A list of other smaller hotels is also
available.

The conference will be held at the Novotel hotel, Katelijnestraat 65B,
8000 Brugge, Belgium.

Proceedings and journal special issue

     * Applications on DSM systems
     * OpenMP Deployment
     * DSM Benchmarking
     * Performance and Debugging Tools
     * DSM in wide area networks
     * DSM and Grids

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.

Scope
-------

The rapid rise of the grid computing concept is leading to the development
of a wide range of capabilities for managing distributed applications and
services. These applications and services, in addition to the grid
infrastructure itself, all rely on network communication. Effectively
utilizing high-speed networks, however, is not entirely trivial. Network
communication will also encompass far more than simple, point-to-point
data transfers. Advanced network capabilities will include quality of
service, security, filtering, reliable multicast, high performance
transport protocols, monitoring, performance measurements and
content-based routing, to name a few. In many cases, new network services
will offer applications a control plane whereby it can control network
behavior in the data plane. Hence, grid applications and middleware that
can be more network-aware, and even topology-aware, will be able to
achieve higher performance, and responsiveness while lower network demand.
Meanwhile, performance and specific requirements of Grid applications will
push the evolution of network protocols.

For these reasons, the Workshop of Grids and Advanced Networks (GAN'05)
will be convened as part of CCGrid 2005 to bring together researchers in
both grids and networks to present the latest work integrating these two
fields. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to :

    * Grids and High-Performance Networks
    * Communication Middleware
    * Multicast for Grids
    * QoS for Grids
    * Grid Network Security
    * Grid Network Services, e.g., monitoring, filtering
    * Transport protocol for Grids
    * Network resource allocation
    * Content-based Networking
    * Bulk Data Transfer
    * Active and Programmable Networks for Grids
    * Resource Discovery
    * Topology Construction
    * Network Protocols Enhancement for Grids
    * Grid Applications using advanced network capabilities
    * Optical network solutions supporting Grids

*****************************************************

CALL FOR PAPERS

Global computing systems and Desktop Grids aim to harness Internet-connected
resources at a global scale. These platforms can be built in a pre-defined,
stable, organized fashion (more like today's Grids) or can be
self-organizing, ad-hoc, decentralized, like in Peer-to-Peer systems.

Supporting computation on such systems raises a novel set of questions.
Because of size, autonomy and the high resource volatility, these platforms
provide the opportunity to revisit major fields of distributed computing:
protocols, infrastructures, security, fault tolerance, scheduling,
performance, services, applications, incentives for cooperation, etc.
Moreover, new issues concerning installation, utilization, flexibility and
scalability become more relevant than ever.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished work describing current
research and novel ideas in the area of Global, Desktop Grid and
Peer-to-Peer Computing as well as experiences with the deployment of related
technologies.

Due to the growing popularity of the Workshop and the aim to keep the
technical level outstanding, only papers with quantitative evaluations
(experimental or theoretical) will be considered for review.

It is expected that the proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer
Society Press, USA.

Best papers will be selected for publication in a special issue of Journal
of Grid Computing (JoGC).

We will also offer a Best Presentation Award.

TOPICS

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Global Computing, Desktop Grids and Peer-to-Peer platforms
* P2P Merging / Interoperability with Grids (OGSA/WSRF)
* Software technology evaluations: Web Services, Grid services
* Middleware, programming models, environments and toolkits
* Protocols for resource management (discovery, reservation, scheduling,
monitoring)
* Economic considerations of resource usage (protocols, accounting)
* Storage in Global Computing infrastructures (strategies, protocols)
* Performance measurements, benchmarking, and modeling of Global Computing
and Peer-to-Peer systems
* Security (trust models, infrastructure, sandbox)
* Discouraging free riding (incentive techniques, detection)
* Result certification (detection/tolerance of corrupted results)
* Programming models for large-scale distributed systems
* Applications (programmed from scratch, ported from sequential or parallel
implementations, adapted to fit a global computing environment)

Paper submission

We invite you to submit a full paper of up to 8 pages in IEEE format (10pt
font, two-column, single-spaced). Submissions are now open:

************************ DEADLINE EXTENSION ***********************

PAPP 2005 - Second International Workshop on
Practical Aspects of High-level Parallel Programming
http://papp2005.free.fr

part of 

The International Conference on Computational Science 
May 22-25, 2005, Atlanta, USA  

AIMS AND SCOPE

Computational Science applications are more and more complex to
develop and require more and more computing power. Parallel and grid
computing are solutions to the increasing need for computing
power. High level languages offer a high degree of abstraction which
ease the development of complex systems. Being based on formal
semantics, it is even possible to certify the correctness of critical
parts of the applications.

Algorithmic skeletons, parallel extensions of functional languages,
such as Haskell and ML, or parallel logic and constraint programming,
parallel execution of declarative programs such SQL queries, etc. have
produced methods and tools that improve the price/performance ratio of
parallel software, and broaden the range of target applications.

The PAPP workshop focuses on practical aspects of high-level parallel
programming: design, implementation and optimization of high-level
programming languages and tools (performance predictors working on
high-level parallel/grid source code, visualisations of abstract
behaviour, automatic hotspot detectors, high-level GRID resource
managers, compilers, automatic generators, etc.), applications in all
fields of computational science, benchmarks and experiments. Research
on high-level grid programming is particularly relevant.

The PAPP workshop is aimed both at researchers involved in the
development of high level approaches for parallel and grid computing
and computational science researchers who are potential users of these
languages and tools.

TOPICS

We welcome submission of original, unpublished papers in English on
topics including:

* high-level models (CGM, BSP, MPM, LogP, etc.) and tools for parallel
  and grid computing

* high-level parallel languages design, implementation and
  optimisation

* functional, logic, constraint programming for parallel, distributed
  and grid computing systems

* algorithmic skeletons, patterns and high level parallel libraries

* generative (e.g. template-based) programming with algorithmic
  skeletons, patterns and high level parallel libraries

* applications in all fields of high-performance computing (using
  high-level tools)

* benchmarks, experiments using such languages and tools

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English
presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and
not submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers will go through a
rigorous reviewing process. Each paper will be reviewed by at least
three referees. The accepted papers will be published in the
Springer-Verlag LNCS series, as part of the ICCS proceedings.

Papers (PDF file) should be sent together with a short abstract in
plain text to loulergue at univ-paris12.fr with subject "[PAPP2005
Workshop] Submission" no later than 20 december 2004. We invite you to
submit a full paper of 8 pages (A4), describing new and original
results. The submitted paper must be formatted according to the rule
of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the
paper. An early email with your intention to submit a paper would be
greatly appreciated (especially if you have doubts about the relevance
of your paper).

Accepted papers should be presented at the workshop and extended and
revised versions will be published in a special issue of Parallel and
Distributed Computing Practices, provided revisions suggested by the
referees are made.

********** Paper submission deadline: January 10, 2005 **********

                                WWW.DCOSS.ORG

The 2005 International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems
(DCOSS '05) will take place in Marina del Rey during June 30 - July 1, 2005.
DCOSS is motivated by the successful ALGOSENSORS '04 (Algorithmic aspects of
wireless sensor networks) workshop, which was co-located with ICALP and LICS
in Finland on 16 July, 2004.  While the scope of ALGOSENSORS was focused on
algorithms for wireless sensor networks, DCOSS '05 is intended to cover
several aspects of distributed computing in sensor systems such as
high level abstractions, computational models, systematic design
methodologies, algorithms, analysis and applications.  The conference will
provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their
contributions related to the above high-level aspects of distributed sensor
systems.  In addition to contributed papers, the meeting will also include
keynote addresses by leading researchers, a panel discussion, and a
poster/presentation session.

Located in Marina del Rey, a beach side community that is the home of the
world's largest man-made harbor,  the meeting venue can be easily reached
from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).  Most of the world famous
attractions of the greater Los Angeles area - including the Santa Monica
mountains, the Getty Center, Hollywood, Venice Beach, Disneyland, and
Universal Studios can be easily reached from the Marina.

                       ==============================

CALL FOR PAPERS

Distributed sensor systems have become a highly active research area due
to their potential for providing diverse new capabilities.  Such systems
allow intelligent dense monitoring of physical environments, which makes
them immensely useful for data collection and analysis.  While much
ongoing research has addressed networking, communication and low-level
self-configuration issues in such systems, there are also significant
challenges pertaining to systematic design, algorithm development and
analysis, and abstract modeling in order to achieve efficient and robust
realizations of large-scale distributed sensor systems.  The large number
of sensor devices involved, severe power, computational and memory
limitations, resource heterogeneity, dense deployment and frequent
failures pose novel challenges to design, algorithms, analysis and
implementation.

The focus of the conference is on distributed computing issues in
large-scale networked sensor systems (including algorithms, applications,
and systematic design techniques and tools), but networking-related
contributions that support high level abstractions are also welcome.
Topics of interest  include but are not limited to:

        - Computation and programming models
        - Energy models, minimization, awareness
        - Distributed algorithms for collaborative information processing
        - Theoretical performance analysis: complexity, correctness,
               scalability, fault-tolerance
        - Abstractions for modular design
        - Languages, operating systems
        - Task allocation, reprogramming and reconfiguration
        - Dynamic resource management
        - Scalable, heterogeneous architectures (node and system-level)
        - Middleware interfaces, communication and processing primitives
        - Design, simulation and optimization tools for deployment
               and operation
        - Design automation and application synthesis techniques
        - Case studies: lessons from real world deployments

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that
demonstrate current research on computational aspects of distributed
sensor systems.  Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 14 single-spaced
pages using 12-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures
and tables.  References may be included in addition to the 14 pages.
Authors need to make sure that the electronically submitted files are
formatted for 8.5x11 inch paper.  Submissions will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and
interest and relevance to the conference attendees.  Submitted papers
may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another conference
or a journal.

Submission procedures are available via Web access at http://www.dcoss.org/

All manuscripts will be reviewed.  Manuscripts must be received by
January 10, 2005, by 5 p.m. U.S. Pacific Coast Time.

The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing
                            (ICAC-05)

 	     Renaissance Seattle Hotel, Seattle, WA
 			 June 13-16, 2005

 	      http://www.autonomic-conference.org


To deal with the increasing complexity of large-scale computer 
and software systems, they must manage themselves, in accordance 
with high-level guidance from humans - a vision that has been 
referred to as autonomic computing.  Meeting the grand challenges 
of autonomic computing requires scientific and technological 
advances in a wide variety of fields, as well as new software and 
system architectures that support the effective integration of 
the constituent technologies.

The purpose of the 2nd International Conference on Autonomic 
Computing (ICAC'05) is to bring together researchers from 
different fields of research who are addressing aspects of self-
management in computing systems. In doing so, we hope to develop 
and nurture a community that can work together to realize the 
vision of large-scale self-managing systems. Papers are solicited 
on a broad array of topics of relevance to autonomic computing; 
particularly those that bear on connections and relationships 
among different areas of research or report on prototype systems 
or experiences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited 
to:

 	- Autonomic computing systems or prototype systems that
           exhibit self-monitoring, self-configuration, self-
           optimization, self-healing, and/or self-protection.

 	- Software architectures for self-managing systems,
           based on Open Grid Services, Web Services, or novel
           paradigms based on biological, economic, social, or
           other analogies.

 	- Specific self-managing components, such as server,
           client, database, storage, or network elements. Emphasis
           should be placed on interactions with other components,
           or techniques or lessons that may generalize to other
           components.

 	- Toolkits, environments, models, languages, runtime and
           compiler technologies for building self-managing
           components, systems or applications.

  	- New technologies supporting system management, such as
           service-level agreements, negotiation or conversation
           support, and behavior enforcement.

 	- System-level technologies, middleware or services that
           entail interactions among two or more components of self-
           managing systems, such as health monitoring, dependency
           analysis, problem localization or remediation, workload
           management, and provisioning.

         - Interfaces to autonomic systems, including user
           interfaces, interfaces for monitoring and controlling
           behavior, and techniques for defining, distributing, and
           understanding policies.

 	- Fundamental science of self-managing systems:
           understanding, controlling, or exploiting emergent
           behavior, theoretical investigations of coupled feedback
           loops, predictive methods, robustness, and related topics.

 	- Experiences with autonomic system or component prototypes:
           measurements, evaluations, or analyses of system behavior,
           user studies, or experiences with large-scale deployments
           of self-managing systems or applications.


PAPER AND POSTER SUBMISSIONS
Full papers (NEW: 8-12 pages in length) and posters (2 pages) are 
invited on a wide variety of topics relating to autonomic computing 
as indicated above. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on 
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality 
of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference.

Scope: 
======

The need for high  computation power and advances in VLSI and 
communications technology has led to the rapid development of
high-performance  parallel, cluster, and grid-based computing
systems. Besides the  technological advances,  parallelism in 
all  level of computation  (thread,  instruction,  task,  and 
program) has been exploited in such computing systems.
 
Investigating  performance  issues in such systems has proven
to be a challenging task that requires the innovative 
performance analysis tools and methods to keep up with the 
rapid evolution and ever increasing complexity of such 
systems. 

This  workshop  will  bring  together  scientists, engineers, 
practitioners, and computer users to share and exchange their 
experiences, discuss challenges, and  report state-of-the-art 
and  in-progress  research  on  all  aspects  of  performance 
modelling,   evaluation,   simulation,   and  measurement  of 
networks  for  parallel, cluster and  grid computing systems. 
Along  the line  of three  major  evaluation techniques, i.e. 
measurement,  analytic  modeling and simulation, this special 
issue will cover various  topics  on  quantitative  modeling, 
simulation and  measurement/testing of networks for parallel, 
cluster,  and  grid  systems.  The topics of interest include 
(but are not limited to): 


* Predictive performance models of networks for parallel, 
  cluster, and grid systems 
* Performance measurement and monitoring tools 
* Tracing and trace analysis 
* Simulation 
* Parallel, distributed, and grid-based algorithms and their
  performance 
* Topological properties of networks for parallel, cluster,
  and grid systems 
* Analytical performance modeling of networks for parallel,
  cluster, and grid systems 
* Performance tools of networks for parallel, cluster, and 
  grid systems 
* Workload characterization and traffic modeling of parallel,
  cluster, and grid applications 
* Performance evaluation of networks for parallel, cluster, 
  and grid systems 
* Performance evaluation of memory and I/O systems for 
  parallel, cluster, and grid systems 
* Performance of systems-on-chip and parallel VLSI computing 
  systems 
* Performance-engineered future generation parallel, cluster, 
  and grid computing systems 
* Improvement in system performance through optimization and 
  tuning 
* Case studies showing the role of performance evaluation in 
  design of networks for parallel, cluster, and grid systems 



Paper Submission:

*****************
Bio-informatics, genomics, proteomics and medical image analysis are
emerging methods in health care. Navigating between phenotype and genotype
means that clinical data and genetic assessment are integrated in patient
investigations.
What is missing today is:
   * the full integration of these methods and technologies to enhance all
phases of health care, including diagnosis, prognosis, etc.;
   * the dissemination of such methods in the clinical practice, whenever
they are developed, deployed and maintained.
Such a vision requires the design and implementation of computer tools,
methods and platforms for seamless biomedical data and bioinformatics
tools integration.
Main issues to realize such a vision are:
   * Integration of multiple laboratories collecting genomics and
post-genomics data, so that biology or bio-informatics research
laboratories:
       - can continue to maintain their own biological, biomedical and
         computing resources autonomously;
       - can face effectively the growth of data they need to manage and
         process exploiting recent algorithms such as data mining taking
         into account that biomedical data are produced and stored
         continuously;
   * Provision of large computing power especially in areas such as:
       - The medical image processing community that is facing a growing
         need to analyse 2D, 3D, 4D images, to simulate medical treatments
         or surgeries (radiotherapy, plastic surgery, etc.), and to
         develop computer aided surgery;
       - Integration and access physicians to all of their patients'medical
         data from their office.
The grid paradigm offers CPU and data handling capabilities and allows
users and laboratories to share their facilities (computing and data
storage resources, instruments, knowledge, etc.) through high bandwidth
networks between dynamically formed Virtual Organizations.
Grid middleware currently offers basic services for Grid management, and
application development and deployment. To face the complexity of novel,
cooperative, distributed Health and Bioinformatics applications, new
specialized Grid services have to be developed: in such a way Grids can be
deployed to address the needs of the biomedical community.
The main goal of the track is to discuss well-known and emerging bio
data-intensive systems in the context of Grids and to analyse technologies
and methodologies useful to develop such systems in these environments.
In particular, this Conference Track aims at offering a forum of
discussion where young researchers and PhD students could present their
research activities, either at an early or mature phase.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to:
      * Grid solutions for bio data-intensive applications
      * Grid infrastructures for bio data analysis
      * High-performance computing for bio data-intensive applications
      * Grid computing infrastructures, middleware and tools for Health
      * Grid computing biomedical services
      * Collaboration technologies
      * Bio data analysis and management
      * Databases and the grid in biomedical field
      * Extracting knowledge from bio data grids
      * Data grids for bioinformatics
      * Security in bio data grids

	     Workshop on Component Models and Frameworks
		    in High Performance Computing

		    http://compframe.org/CFP.html


			  **** Abstract ****

Component and framework technology is mainstream for desktop environments, but
has lagged in the high-performance computing (HPC) community. The reasons for
this stem partly from a general lack of awareness of component concepts in the
community, but mostly from the fact that desktop component models sacrifice
performance for ease-of-use. In addition, HPC uniquely requires component-based
support for patterns special to parallel computing, such as the massively
parallel single program multiple data pattern. Beyond the special requirements
of HPC, component concepts promise to provide the same benefits as they do in
the mainstream: participation by 10's or 100's of developers and the ability to
support the software complexity that the simulation of natural phenomena
demand. This workshop is devoted to the exposition and discussion of software
concepts that will make this promise a reality. 


		     **** Areas of Interest ****

    * Mechanics and architecture of component models and frameworks in a high
      performance setting.
    * Novel applications and user experience of high-performance components and
      frameworks.
    * Comparisons between HPC frameworks and component models.
    * Investigations regarding the impact of portability and language
      interoperability on performance and component/framework concepts.
    * Novel work or experience dealing with distributed object frameworks and
      components directly related to HPC or the handling of large data/
      analysis tasks.


		     **** Paper Submissions ****

   1. Papers will take the form of an extended abstract 3-4 pages in length
      including references and figures.

   2. Although all abstracts will be the same length, authors should target
      their work to one of two categories:

          o Mature work of a scientifically defensible nature. Submissions will
            be judged on scientific quality and completeness. Though
            arrangements are not finalized, it is expected that the program
            committee will solicit full-length papers from selected authors for
            inclusion in a special issue.

          o Works in progress where many open questions remain. The purpose is
            to stimulate discussion on topics that are on the cutting edge of
            this field. This is a good choice for authors that desire feedback
            from the community on prospective research. Submissions will be
            judged primarily on creativity and relevance to
            outstanding problems relating to frameworks and components in HPC.

   3. All submissions will only be accepted in electronic format:(PDF only).

   4. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two program committee
      members.

   5. Dates:
        Abstracts Due: 16 February 2005
            Submissions will only be accepted in electronic format: (PDF) via
            the web site (note: if the PDF only requirement presents a
            difficulty contact the Program Committee). Watch for the author's
            submission_form to appear on or before 15 January.

        Notification of Acceptance: 31 March, 2005
            This will include reviewers comments and require possible
            amendments to the abstract per the program committee's
            recommendation.

        Camera Ready Copies Due: 31 April, 2005


		       **** Meeting Format ****

The goal is to allow considerably more time for dialogue than is usually the
case in workshops. Consistent with this, the program committee has decided to
give equal time to individual paper presentations and moderated, open
discussion. This requirement will limit the number of papers to approximately
fifty.


			**** Proceedings ****

Extended abstracts will be published at the workshop and made available on the
web. A journal special issue based on workshop contributions is being planned.

June 21--23, 2005
Toulouse, France
URL: www.cerfacs.fr/algor/CSC05

The Second International Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing
(CSC05) will be organized at CERFACS, Toulouse, June 21--23, 2005.
The workshop, organized in cooperation with SIAM, CERFACS,
ENSEEIHT-IRIT, and INRIA, will provide a  forum for
researchers interested in the  interaction of
combinatorial mathematics and algorithms with scientific computing
to discuss current developments in research.

CSC05 follows the pioneering
SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC04)
held at San Francisco in Feb 2004.
The CSC04 Workshop, attended by close to a hundred participants,
featured three plenary talks and 21 selected talks
on the themes of sparse matrix computations, high-performance algorithms,
combinatorial problems in optimization and automatic differentiation,
mesh generation, computational biology, and combinatorial matrix theory.
The CSC05 Workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in
these themes as well as other aspects
of combinatorial mathematics and algorithms in scientific computing,
broadly interpreted.
Researchers in emerging application areas
as well as  theoretical areas that intersect with combinatorial
scientific computing, e.g.,  information science,
networks, bioinformatics, and combinatorial optimization,
are invited to participate.

Contributed presentations in lecture format are invited in all areas
consistent with the workshop themes.
A 2-page extended abstract, in PDF format,
of a proposed talk should be submitted  by February 21, 2005.
The submission procedure is described
on the web page for the conference (listed above).
Authors will be notified of acceptance of their talks by mid March.

Toulouse, the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees region of France,
is a European center for science and technology,
and is close to the Pyrenees mountains, the Mediterranean Sea,
Carcassone, and many  tourist attractions.
The Workshop will be held at the Conference Center of the
Meteo France campus, where CERFACS is located.
A limited number of rooms (single and double) will be  available
at the Meteo.

Further details on workshop registration, hotels and housing
options, etc., will be   posted as they become available at
the conference web page.

Advances in networking, high-end computers, large data stores and
middleware capabilities are ushering in a new era of large scale,
distributed applications, which dynamically marshal resources across a
heterogeneous, distributed environment.  Along with these opportunities
come new challenges.  The goal of this workshop is to encourage innovation
by addressing the complex issues that arise in large-scale applications of
distributed computation, and to promote the development of innovative
applications that effectively use distributed resources and adapt to a wide
range of heterogeneity and dynamics in space and time. This includes
development, deployment, management and evaluations of large scale
applications in science, engineering, medicine, business, economics,
education, and other disciplines, on Grids and other distributed
heterogeneous and dynamic computing environments. Issues related to
irregularity of applications and algorithms in space and time, variability
in programming environments, heterogeneity of software and hardware
platforms, dynamics, ad hoc behaviors and unreliability of execution
environments, etc., in the context of these applications are of particular
interest.

This workshop promotes the exchange of ideas, information, and novel
developments among universities, federal laboratories, and industry.  It
fosters multidisciplinary collaborative solutions to issues arising in
large-scale distributed applications.  Topics of interest to this workshop
include (but are not limited to) applications that illustrate advances in
the following areas:

* Very large-scale distributed applications
* Autonomic applications and runtime systems
* Application-specific portals in distributed environments
* Distributed problem-solving environments
* Distributed, collaborative science applications
* Heterogeneous spatial and temporal applications, e.g., with heterogeneous 
characteristics in time, space and domain
* Distributed, multidimensional, dynamically adaptive applications
* Applications of new theories and tools for constructing adaptive software
systems
* Variable granularity environments
* Examples of distributed applications benefiting from advances in
   o Resource management, dynamic scheduling or load balancing in heterogeneous

environments
   o Runtime support for intelligent, adaptive systems
   o Programming models for heterogeneous and dynamic  computation
   o Portability, quality of service, or fault-tolerance in cluster and grid

Hello everyone,

The MicroGrid team is pleased to announce the release of MicroGrid 2.4.6.
The document and source package is available at
http://csag.ucsd.edu/projects/grid/MGridDownload.html.

The MicroGrid provides online simulation of large-scale network and Grid
resources. By creating a virtual grid environment in which existing
middleware and applications can be run unchanged, detailed study of complex
dynamic behavior such as scaling, failure responses, and other emergent
behavior can be explored.

In the current version, simulation accuracy is improved and some bugs are
fixed. Our experiments show that microgrid can support large-scale ISP
network simulation (20,000+ routers) based on new hierarchical load-balance
approach.

 

Grid researchers can conduct two types of experiments with microgrid:
(1) normal application without globus. You need relink your application to
the mgrid library.
(2) application based on globus. Besides the application itself, you also
need relink globusrun, globus-gatekeeper and globus-job-manager (you can do
this using the script build_mgrid_globus).



Here are the latest papers about MicroGrid:
