HPDC-13 The leading technical conference on Grids &

The leading technical conference on Grids
Distributed Computing
June, 2004
Honolulu, Hawaii USA
The Thirteenth IEEE International Symposium on
High-Performance Distributed Computing will be a
forum for presenting the latest research findings on the
design and use of highly networked systems for
computing, collaboration, data analysis, and other
innovative tasks.
Submissions are encouraged on all aspects of Grid and
high performance distributed computing. Case studies
describing novel applications are also of interest. A
more complete list of topics is included below. All
papers will be rigorously reviewed by a distinguished
international review committee, with a particular
emphasis on scientific results having practical impact.
Paper Submission Deadline: February 2004
Authors are requested to submit technical
papers of at most 5000 words, not including
figures or references. These papers should be
written to be self-contained and to provide the
technical substance required for the program
contribution. Papers that exceed this length
will be rejected outright.
Papers submitted to or published in another
conference or journal are ineligible for this
HPDC-13 will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii (USA) in
conjunction with the 11th Global Grid Forum Meeting,
the international body to promote communication, best
practices, and standards in Grid computing. HPDC13/GGF-11 will together provide a global meeting
place for those interested in Grid computing
technologies and applications. A joint program of
tutorials and keynote talks will highlight major themes
and recent developments in the field.
