Computing on Clusters of Workstations

IEEE Third International Conference on
Algorithms And Architectures for Parallel Processing

December 8th - 12th, 1997, Melbourne Australia

There has been an increasing interest in the use of loosely-coupled clusters of workstations connected together by high speed networks for carrying out parallel/distributed processing. The trend is mainly driven by the cost effectiveness of such systems as compared to large multiprocessor systems with tightly-coupled processors and memories. Computing on a cluster of workstations connected together by high speed networks has given rise to a range of algorithmic and implementation issues on any given platform. This special session is planned to evaluate the present state of the art in network requirements and developing high performance distributed applications in a networked environment as well as to explore future directions of research and development. Topics include (but are not limited to): Submission should include authors names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, email addresses, on the cover page. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.
Please submit your full paper (not to exceed 20 double spaced pages in length) to one of the session organizers electronically . You should email your postscript file (preferably produced by dvips and viewable by ghostview) by email; you should also send a separate email with authors' names, addresses, title and abstract of the paper. Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible (six copies of the hardcopy should be mailed).
