4th International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid
(CCGrid 2004: IEEE support pending final approval)

19-22 April, Chicago, Illinois, USA


In 20 years from 1970 to 1990 the Internet and the UNIX operating system became ubiquitous in computer science laboratories and universities. During the 10 years from 1990 to 2000, the Internet emerged as a global information utility, commodity microprocessors fueled the establishment of clusters as computing platforms, and open source Linux became a mainstream operating system. Metacomputers, the concept of combining networked resources into distributed virtual computers, grew into the concept of The Grid with the vision that those distributed resources would be as straightforward to build and use as the ubiquitous electrical power grid.

Today we are seeing a convergence of extremes: terascale computers created from Open Source Linux commodity clusters, multi-gigabit/second wide area networks, and the Open Grid Services Architecture, combining Web services designed to scale to millions of endpoints with High Performance Grid concepts designed to scale to TeraFlop endpoints. Together, they are facilitating a new wave of computer science research and development.

CCGrid2004, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (final approval pending), is designed to bring together international leaders who are pioneering researchers, developers, and users of extreme 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.

CCGrid2004 is interested in topics including, but not limited to:

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


Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines, see: Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer. Paper submission instructions will be placed on:

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