************************************************************************
             
 The increasing complexity of integrating, deploying and managing computing 
 systems is beginning to overwhelm the capabilities of software developers 
 and system administrators. The only viable long-term solution is to create 
 computer systems that manage themselves in accordance with high-level 
 guidance from humans a vision that is sometimes referred to as autonomic 
 computing. Meeting the grand challenge of autonomic computing requires 
 scientific and technological advances in a wide variety of fields, and new 
 architectures that support effective integration of the constituent 
 technologies.  
              
 The purpose of the International Conference on Autonomic Computing is to 
 bring together researchers in diverse fields who are addressing important 
 aspects of self-management in computing systems. In so doing, we hope to 
 establish a unified community that can work together to realize the 
 ultimate vision of large-scale self-managing systems.


 We have assembled a two-day program that includes 31 full-paper 
 presentations and a comparable number of posters, as well as keynote talks 
 by Professors Armando Fox (Stanford University) and Nick Jennings 
 (Southampton University), world authorities on multi-agent systems and 
 self-healing systems, respectively. The conference will conclude with a 
 panel moderated by Ken Birman of Cornell University, in which architects 
 from Hewlett Packard, IBM and Microsoft will debate the vision for self-
managing systems that is being espoused by each of their companies, with a
view towards extracting from this discussion a grounded set of challenges 
 that can be posed to the research community. 

 Two half-day tutorials will be offered on the day before the conference 
 begins. Presented by leading researchers in the field, one tutorial will 
 focus on autonomic grid computing, while the other tutorial will explore 
 research challenges of autonomic computing from an industry perspective.

               
 We invite you to participate in this conference, and to take part in the 
 emergence of a new and vital field of endeavor.

The Access Grid (AG) Retreat 2004 will be held June 9-11 in Toronto, 
Canada. This year's meeting will be hosted by Ryerson University in their 
Rogers Communication Center, an ideal venue for collaboration and interaction.

The Access Grid is an ensemble of resources including multimedia 
large-format displays, presentation and interactive environments, and 
interfaces to Grid middleware and to visualization environments. These 
resources are used to support group-to-group interactions across the 
Grid.  For example, the AG is used for large-scale distributed meetings, 
collaborative work sessions, seminars, lectures, tutorials, and 
training.  The Access Grid began as a community effort in terms of 
development, support, education, and training and it continues to grow as a 
result of this approach.  The AG Retreats, an annual tradition, reflect 
this community involvement and are critical to the continued development, 
utility, and improvement of the AG.

The AG Retreat program provides an interactive forum for Access Grid 
community including developers, node operators and users.  The following 
topics represent priority issues for the Access Grid Retreat 2004 program:
Outreach to View Communities
Existing community presentations on:
-Improving the AG
-How is the AG used?
-Requirements from Diverse Communities
Examples of Shared Apps, Services
Ideas for External Services�	Communities/Regional Activity Reports

Technology Talks-	pyGlobus, etc.
-Networking
-Multicast
-SSM
-IPv6 Services Support
Security Issues
-Firewall configuration
-Certificate Authority Innovations

The Access Grid Retreat is an opportunity for the AG community to share 
recent experiences and research findings, to present ideas for future AG 
technical directions, and to train and educate AG newcomers. Participants 
depend on the AG Retreats for critical updates on topics ranging from AG 
collaboration experiences to node installation and troubleshooting to AG 
development directions.

CONFERENCE VENUE:
---------------------------------

The conference is organized in the capitol city of Hungary,
Budapest, which actually consists of two parts, Buda and Pest,
separated by the Danube River. Each side is unique in itself
but complementary to the other. To the city's west is hilly
Buda vaunting an enchanting Historic District at its heart.
To the east is the vast and relatively flat Pest, imbued
with an historic pride rooted in trade and commerce.

To truly experience Buda is to walk the historic streets.
The city's Medieval, Baroque and Classical flourishes, the
various monuments - damaged during World War II - have been
meticulously restored. Pest, thanks to its level terrain
and spacious area, is home to numerous museums that house
the nation's greatest art and historical collections. Add
to this Pest's somewhat cutting edge interest in the arts,
and you have an exciting and oh, so contemporary, city -
a superb complement to her more old fashioned partner Buda,
just across the Danube.

in conjunction with EuroPVM/MPI 2004

Budapest, Hungary
September 19-22, 2004

http://www.lpds.sztaki.hu/dapsys

DAPSYS (Austrian-Hungarian Workshop on Distributed
and Parallel Systems) is an international biannual
conference series dedicated to all aspects of
distributed and parallel computing.

DAPSYS 2004 is organized jointly with the 11th
EuroPVM/MPI conference. Participants of the two
events will share invited talks, tutorials and
social events. Contributed paper presentations
will take place in separate tracks in parallel.

While EuroPVM/MPI is dedicated to the latest
developments related to the PVM and MPI message
passing systems, DAPSYS provides an excellent
opportunity for academics and industrial experts
to discuss general aspects of distributed and
parallel systems. In this way, the two events
complement each other and participants of DAPSYS
and EuroPVM/MPI can benefit from the joint
organization.

SCOPE
---------------------------------

DAPSYS 2004 is expected to be a major event for
vendors, researchers and teachers to consider
present and future topics in distributed and
parallel systems. Papers presenting original
research, educational methods, new concepts,
and results of international projects are being
sought. Papers describing clusters, cluster
programming, Grid systems and related fields
are especially welcome.

Topics of interest of DAPSYS include but are
not limited to the following:

* Cluster and Grid systems
* Distributed and Grid middleware
* Parallel operating systems
* Parallel and distributed programming
  languages and methodologies
* Parallel and distributed algorithms
* Software engineering and development

* Applications of parallel, distributed
  technologies, clusters and the Grid

PUBLICATION
---------------------------------

The proceedings of DAPSYS 2004 will be published
by Kluwer Academic Publichers. A tradition is
that a number of papers are selected to appear
in a special issue of a prestigous international
journal. DAPSYS special issues so far appeared
in Journal of Parallel Computing, Journal of
New Generation Computing,  Journal of Parallel
and Distributed Computing Practices. We will
follow this tradition and publish the best papers
in a special issue of the International Journal
of Computational Science and Engineering (IJCSE).

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
