The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
September 27-30, 2005
Burlington Marriott Boston, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA


Commodity clusters today provide a convenient and cost-effective platform for executing complex computation-, data- and/or transaction-centric applications. Many research and development challenges remain in all areas of cluster computing, including middleware, networking, algorithms and applications, resource management, platform deployment and maintenance, and integration of clusters into computational grids. Cluster 2005 provides an open forum for researchers, practitioners and users to present and discuss issues, directions, and results that will shape the future of cluster computing. This years event is to be held in and around Boston / Cambridge.

See the upcoming Call for Participation for more details.


Cluster 2005 welcomes paper and poster submissions from engineers and scientists in academia and industry describing original research work in all areas of cluster computing. In addition, Cluster 2005 will welcome proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held concurrently with the conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Cluster Middleware:
- Single-System Image Services - Software Environments and Tools
