FIRST INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON OPENMP
IWOMP 2005

http://www.nic.uoregon.edu/iwomp2005

Eugene, Oregon USA
June 1-4, 2005


OpenMP is an Application Programming Interface (API) widely
accepted as a standard for high-level shared-memory parallel
programming.  OpenMP is a portable, scalable programming model that
provides a simple and flexible interface for developing shared-memory
parallel applications in Fortran, C, and C++.  Since its introduction
in 1997, OpenMP has gained support from the majority of
high-performance compiler and hardware vendors.  There is also active
research in OpenMP compilers, runtime systems, tools, and environments.
Under the direction of the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB), the
OpenMP standard continues to evolve.  The community of OpenMP
researchers and developers in academia and industry is organized under
cOMPunity, a forum for the dissemination and exchange of information about
and experiences with OpenMP.

IWOMP is the consolidation of three OpenMP workshops: the European Workshop
on OpenMP (EWOMP), the Workshop on OpenMP Applications and Tools (WOMPAT),
and the Workshop on OpenMP Experiences and Implementation (WOMPEI).  IWOMP
2005 is the first meeting of the combined workshops and is being
co-sponsored by cOMPunity and the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB).
In keeping with the objectives and format of the previous workshops, IWOMP
2005 will have technical papers and panels, tutorials, and a hands-on
laboratory (OMPlab), where OpenMP users and developers can work together
and demonstrate the latest tools.  Ideas for this laboratory are
welcome.  Also, as the first IWOMP meeting, all participants will have a
chance to participate in a IWOMP logo

IWOMP 2005 will publish formal proceedings of the presented papers in LNCS.
Full papers of 10 pages in length are to be submitted for review.  Authors
of accepted papers will be asked to prepare final paper up to 12 pages.

The 2nd International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC-05)
will bring together researchers from different fields of research 
who are addressing aspects of self-management in computing systems. 
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 ICAC Conference helps to develop and 
nurture a community that can work together to realize the vision 
of large-scale self-managing systems. The Conference's program 
includes keynotes, panel, papers, posters, tutorials, exhibits, 
and demos on a broad array of topics of relevance to autonomic 
computing.

On behalf of the ICPP organizing committee, welcome to ICPP 2005 in Oslo.
This is the
second time in the long history of this conference that it is hosted in
Europe, and we are
working hard to make this event memorable.
 
The venue, this time, is the most northern this conference has ever seen. In
order to benefit
from this location, we have moved the date of the conference to mid June
from its more
traditional schedule in August or September. If the weather is with us, we
hope to experience
over 20 hours of sunlight each day, and if you have combined the trip to the
conference with
a vacation to the northern parts of Norway, you might even get to see sun at
midnight!
 
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Third International Workshop on

HIGH-LEVEL PARALLEL PROGRAMMING AND APPLICATIONS (HLPP 2005) 

July 4-5, 2005, Warwick University, Coventry, United Kingdom 

http://hlpp2005.free.fr
    
AIMS AND SCOPE

Parallel and distributed systems are now readily available as their
price/performance ratio continues to improve. But parallel and
distributed programming is still dominated by low-level techniques
such as send/receive message passing.

Sequential programming has long benefited from high-level programming
techniques and tools that have made today's immense range of software
economically viable. Two decades of research into high-level parallel
and distributed programming have produced methods and tools that
improve the price/performance ratio of parallel software, and broaden
the range of target applications.

Grid systems offer a tremendous computing power. Nevertheless, this
power is far from being effectively exploited. In addition to
technical problems related to portability and access, grid computing
needs new programming paradigms. Research on high level programming
for meta and grid computing is particularly relevant.

This workshop follows HLPP 2001 & HLPP 2003, and is aimed at: 

computer science and scientific computing researchers, practitioners,
graduate students; high-performance application developers (e.g. in
DBMS, data-mining, parallel model checking, virtual reality)

TOPICS 

We welcome submission of original, unpublished papers in English on
topics including (but not limited to) the following aspects of
parallel, distributed, meta and grid computing:

- high-level algorithmic methods for parallel, communication-efficient
  and external-memory computation

- high-level programming models (BSP, CGM, LogP, MPM, etc.) and tools 

- performance models and performance evaluation 

- high level resource-aware approaches 

- algorithmic skeletons and constructive methods 

- object, functional, logic, constraint programming 

- applications using high-level languages and tools 

- teaching experience with high-level tools and methods 

Accepted papers should be presented at the workshop and will be
published in a special issue of an international journal (provided
revisions suggested by the referees are made).

SCOPE:
The rapid and continued growth of wireless technology
made information accessible anywhere and at any time.
At the same time the falling cost of both communication and
mobile computing devices has created a great demand for
untethered communication and computing. In addition to
wireless networks that rely on pre-existing infrastructure,
where wireless communications take place only between the
end-nodes and the access points, rapidly-deployable
self-organizing mobile networks including ad hoc wireless
networks and sensor networks are being developed and deployed.

To cope with the rapidly increasing number of users and
with the increasing demand for mobile services, it is becoming
imperious to optimize the management and use of the limited
resources inherent to wireless environments.

In turn, these specific demands require new "algorithmic"
approaches specifically designed to cope with the highly
dynamic underlying infrastructure and with the scarce resources
available. Old, heavy-duty algorithmic solutions simply do not work!
And, oftentimes, Big-O is not the "best" solution -- one
needs to be "closer" to reality.

The main goal of A_SWAN'2005 is to bring together in a setting
conducive of cross-fertilization a number of researchers and
contributions that demonstrate the use of the new algorithmics in the
context of the following set of representative topics:

intrusion detection
consensus in sensor networks
unauthorized traversal and monitoring in sensor networks
graph modeling
power management
unit disks
generalized coloring algorithms
content delivery networks
optimal pricing strategies
algorithmic mechanism design
range assignment
station/sensor placement
resource management
bandwidth allocation
resource discovery
handover (handoff)
routing
location tracking
user paging
scheduling
data access
data organization
security and fault tolerance

               Call For Papers
*****************************************************************

 In conjunction with the 14th International Symposium on 
 High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC-14), 
 Research Triangle Park, NC, July 24, 2005

     http://www.cercs.gatech.edu/hpidc2005/
*****************************************************************

The emergence of 10.0 GigE, InfiniBand, programmable NICs, 
network processors, and protocols like DDP and RDMA over IP, 
make it possible to create tightly linked systems across physical 
distances that exceed those of traditional single cluster or 
server systems. Further, these technologies can deliver communication 
capabilities that achieve the performance levels needed by high 
end applications in enterprise systems and like those produced 
by the high performance computing community.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the confluence of WAN 
technologies with high performance interconnects, as applicable 
or applied to realistic high end applications. The intent is to 
create a venue that will act as a bridge between researchers 
developing tools and platforms for high-performance distributed 
computing, end user applications seeking high performance solutions,
and technology providers aiming to improve interconnect and networking 
technologies for future systems. The hope is to foster knowledge creation 
and intellectual interchanges between HPC end users and technology 
developers in the specific domain of high performance interconnects.

Topics of interest include:

* Hardware/software architectures for communication infrastructures 
for HPC
* Data and control protocols for interactive and large data volume 
applications
* Novel devices and technologies to enhance interconnect properties
* Interconnect-level issues when extending high performance beyond 
single machines, including  architecture, protocols, services, QoS, 
and security
* Remote storage (like iSCSI), remote databases, and datacenters, etc.

CONFERENCE VENUE:

The conference will be held on Sorrento Peninsula, mediterranean
land that has been depicted described and immortalised in song
by artists, poets and travellers from every period of history.
Along the coast, rugged and inaccessible cliffs soar upwards
between beautiful beaches, hidden caves, enchanting bays and
sheltered coves. Charming local towns, extraordinary hospitality
as well as excellent, well laid-out tourist facilities open the
peninsula and the island's beautiful to its many visitors from

First International Workshop on

Mobile Ad-hoc and Ubiquitous Sensor Networks

(MASN 2005)

URL:  <http://www.cs.gsu.edu/~agb/mausn05.htm>

Submission Deadline: May 1, 2005

 

To be held in conjunction with 

 

ISPA 2005

http://keysoftlab.nju.edu.cn/ipsa2005/

 

 

November 2-5, 2005

Nanjing University, P.R. China

 

 

Scope:

 

The concept of wireless ad hoc networks comes from the early military
research effort called Mobile Packet Radio Networking in the 1970's and
1980's. It has many advantages over wired networking, such as rapid
deployment without complicated configuration. Such networks can also be
widely used in those environments where wired networks are not applicable or
not easily set up, for example, in the scenarios of military or emergent
(fire/safety/rescue) fields.

 

As the technology continues to evolve, sensor networks are quickly emerging
as an active research area with many applications. These are wireless ad hoc
networks in which the sensors typically have very limited resources. This
limitation brings many challenges to researchers within this community. 

 

The purpose of this workshop is to provide current information on research
and development activities in the field of wireless ad hoc and sensor
networks. The workshop will provide a forum for researchers to exchange
ideas, discuss solutions, and identify future directions for this field. 

 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

*	Mobility management
*	Resource management
*	Data management
*	Power management and energy efficient design
*	Security and fault tolerance issues
*	Quality of service (QoS) issues
*	Broadcasting/multicasting/routing strategies
*	Applications for ad hoc and sensor networks
*	Performance evaluation
*	Network configuration
*	Distributed coordination algorithms (synchronization, scheduling,
location, topology control, deployment, addressing, etc.)

 

Submission Guidelines:

 

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished
research and recent developments in the topics related to the MASN workshop.
The length of the papers should be a maximum of 10 double-column
single-spaced pages including figures and references on 8.5 by 11 inch paper
using at least 10 point font (based upon IEEE Proceedings Style). Please
remember that the final versions will be restricted to 8 pages. Prospective
authors should electronically submit their paper in PDF format to
<mailto:anu@cs.gsu.edu> anu@cs.gsu.edu. 

 

Accepted papers will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer

			         HiPC 2005
			    December 18-21, 2005
			        Goa, India


The 12th Annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing
(HiPC 2005) will be held in Goa during December 18-21, 2005. It will 
serve as a forum to present the current work by researchers from around the 
world, act as a venue to provide stimulating discussions and highlight 
high performance computing activities in Asia. The conference has a history of 
attracting participation from reputed researchers from all over the world. 

The eleventh meeting held in Bangalore, India, in 2004 had 48 contributed 
papers that were selected from over 250 submissions from 13 countries. The 
conference had tutorials on cutting edge topics in high performance computing 
and related areas by leading researchers from academia and industry. The 
10th HiPC Conference (HiPC 2003) held in Hyderabad, India, in December 2003, 
had 48 contributed papers that were selected from 164 submissions from 11
countries and approximately 300 participants attended the meeting. Please
refer to the website http://www.hipc.org for more information on previous
meetings. 

Goa, popularly know as the "Rome of the East" and the "Pearl of
the Orient" due
to its exquisite beaches, magnificent scenic beauty, architectural splendors 
of its temples, churches and unique Indo-Portuguese culture, is among the 
foremost tourist destinations in India. A meeting point of races, religions 
and cultures of East and West over the centuries, the soul of Goa goes deep 
into its unique history, rich heritage and distinctive lifestyle, quite 
different from the rest of India. 

Goa is also on the way to become the first "intelligent state" in the
country. 
Private enterprises in information technology have been expanding rapidly in 
Goa providing services such as networking, software and database solutions 
to meet growing needs in government and private sectors, as well as growing 
international demand for these services. Most major national and multi-national
vendors such as HP, IBM, Dell and Wipro have setup major operations in Goa.

HiPC 2005 will emphasize the design and analysis of high performance computing 
and networking systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial 
applications. In addition to technical sessions consisting of contributed 
papers, the conference will include invited presentations, a poster session, 
tutorials, and vendor presentations.

clothing and jewelry etc.

This emergence is a natural outcome of research and technological
advances in embedded systems, pervasive computing and communications,
wireless networks, mobile computing, distributed computing and agent
technologies, etc. Its explosive impact on academics, industry,
government and daily life can be compared to that of electric motors
over the past century but promises to revolutionize life much more
profoundly than elevators, electric motors or even personal computer
evolution ever did.

Call-For-Papers

Special Issue of the

*Journal of Parallel Distributed Computing (JPDC):*

Grids in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

* *

Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic 
research and industrial application. Research and development in 
bioinformatics and computational biology create and develop advanced 
information and computational techniques to manage and extract useful 
information from the DNA/RNA/protein sequence being generated by high 
throughput technologies (e.g. DNA microarrays, DNA sequencers). It is 
the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and 
graph theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), and computer 
science (e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to the 
understanding of living systems. Those techniques are extremely 
computationally or data intensive, providing motivation for using Grids.

Grids are an enabling technology that permit the transparent coupling of 
geographically-dispersed resources (machines, networks, data storage, 
visualization devices, and scientific instruments) for large-scale 
distributed applications. Grids provide several important benefits for 
users and applications to share: computing and data storage, knowledge, 
instruments, etc).


This special issue of the Journal Parallel and Distributed Computing 
(JPDC) is seeking original unpublished research articles that describe 
recent advances in using Grids in bioinformatics and computational biology.
*Topics of Interest Include but Are Not Limited To:*

GRIDs in:

* Bio-ontology and data mining, Data visualization
* DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping, Molecular evolution and
phylogeny
* Gene expression and micro-arrays, Gene identification and annotation
* Molecular modeling and simulation, Molecular sequence analysis
* Protein structure prediction
* Sequence assembly, Sequence search and alignment
* Bio data intensive applications, Grid infrastructures, middleware
and tools for bio data

*Submission Guidelines: *The manuscripts must be submitted to 
http://www.ees.elsevier.com/jpdc. A paper must not exceed 25
pages.**



*Important Dates:*

* Full papers submission: Sept 10, 2005
* Notification of acceptance of papers: Jan 10, 2006
* Final manuscript due: March 25, 2006
* Tentative publication date: June 2006.

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

                         CALL FOR PAPERS

                   IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EDUCATION

Special Issue on "GRID-BASED TECHNOLOGIES APPLIED TO EDUCATION"

    http://www.des.udc.es/~juan/IEEETOE-SPECIALISSUE-GRID.htm

                    Deadline: 30 September 2005

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


Grid-based technologies enable the sharing, exchange, discovery,
and aggregation of resources (processors, storage, scientific
devices, information, knowledge, etc.) across geographically
distributed sites. Although these technologies were primarily
intended to support scientific research, they are increasingly
deployed in other domains, such as business, industry, government
or education. Grid technology has great potential in education,
offering a framework that opens new ways of teaching and learning
that have not been possible before.

IEEE Transactions on Education seeks original and unpublished
manuscripts for a special issue reporting solid and innovative
experiences in the application of Grid technologies to the education
environment. This special issue is intended to gather high-quality
papers that will provide a major reference source in this emerging
and challenging field. Suggested topics include (but are not limited
to) the following.

 * Grid middleware to support education
 * Use of ad hoc Grids in teaching and learning
 * Distance education using Grids
 * Collaborative educational environments based on Grid technologies
 * Grid portals utilized in an educational environment
 * Grid-based remote laboratories
 * Nation-wide and international educational programs supported by
   Grid technologies
 * Grid-based resource sharing (CPU, data, applications, instruments,
   etc.) for educational purposes

The above topics must describe the application of the topic to the
curriculum content in a course or courses in Electrical Engineering,
Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Information Technology,
Computational Science and Engineering, or a related discipline. The
course environment can be at any educational level including training
programs for skill development.  If Web resources are addressed in
the manuscript, the author(s) must ensure that the Web resources
remain available to readers for a minimum of ten years since the
half-life of journal papers exceeds seven years.

Prospective authors should consult the Transactions' web site at
http://www.ewh.ieee.org/soc/es/ToE-manuscript.html for
information
about the scope of Transactions and manuscript preparation. Technical
content and pedagogical issues must be balanced in the paper to reach
a broad audience. Thus, manuscripts should address issues, such as
lessons learned from the application of Grid technologies, impact on
teaching and learning, individual and organizational implications,
feasibility and effectiveness of the Grid-based approach. Each
manuscript must contain meaningful, statistically-sound assessment
data supporting the conclusions presented in the manuscript.

Manuscripts must be submitted electronically to the Transactions'
 Manuscript Central web site at http://te-ieee.manuscriptcentral.com
no later than 30 September 2005, selecting 'Special Issue' as
'Manuscript Type' in the corresponding menu. For further information
