Call For Papers
Performance in Clusters: Measurement, Analysis and Achievements (PCMAA)
PCMAA is a session organized on the 7th World Multi Conference on Systemics,
Cybernetics And Informatics (SCI 2003).
July 27 - 30, 2003. Orlando, Florida, USA Sheraton World
PCMAA focuses on performance measurement, analysis and achievements in cluster
computing. All kind of clusters, commodity/beowulf, high performance and large
Internet/Grid oriented clusters, are of interest. Each cluster category
matches some application requirement and need particular investigation about
how to achieve the best performance. Among factors that can influence cluster
performance there are broadband networ ks, network protocols, message passing
systems, fitting algorithms, parallel and distributed programming techniques,
parallel I/O techniques, management tools, performance measurement tools and
many others. We would like to encourage participation
of both researchers and practitioners working on these problems.
Topics of interest are:
* Impact of networks and network protocols on cluster performance
* High-performance I/O design for cluster computing
* Impact of cluster management tools on cluster performance
* Performance instrumentation on clusters
* Application benchmark tests on clusters
A panel will end this session, talking about efficient cluster design,
programming and management.
