2005 Call for Papers, Tutorials, and Technical Presentations

The 6th International Conference on Linux Clusters: The HPC Revolution 2005 is organized by the Linux Clusters Institute (LCI) for users and administrators of clusters for high-performance computing.

The HPC Revolution 2004 is the premier international forum to share information on management, administration, and scientific computing techniques on Linux-based systems for high-performance computing. The conference will feature speakers from academia, research labs, and industry involved in cluster-based high-performance computing. These speakers will address efforts to integrate and develop science and engineering applications for Linux-based HPC systems in order to achieve maximum performance and scalability.

The conference program committee is soliciting novel papers, practical tutorials, and insightful technical presentations on a broad range of topics related to systems integration, operation and support, end-user applications, tools, and experiences.

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

  • Development of Highly Scalable Applications
  • Porting Experiences
  • Performance Evaluation, Analysis, and Optimization
  • High-Performance Applications and Libraries
  • Performance Tools
  • User Environments
  • Compilers
  • Clusters in Education
  • Production Management of HPC Linux Clusters
  • Clusters in Data Centers
  • New Experimental and Commercial Clusters
  • Clusters in Heterogeneous HPC Environments
  • System Management and Administration
  • Resource Management
  • Tools for Building and Administering Clusters
  • Scheduling and Load Balancing
  • Parallel I/O, File Systems, and Storage
  • Networks, Interconnects, and Protocols
  • Security
  • Linux Kernel Modifications or Extensions
  • Meta- and Grid-Computing
  • Middleware for Clusters
  • Other OS Strategies in Contrast to Linux
  • Visualization
