The 4th International Workshop on
Cluster Computing - Technologies, Environments, and Applications

CC-TEA 2000


Organized At

2000 International Conference on
Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'2000)

 June 26 - 29, 2000
Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

In Corporation with IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)

CC-TEA merges with CC-GRID symposium from 2001

Call for Papers

The availability of "high-speed networks and high-performance microprocessors as commodity components" is making networks of computers an appealing vehicle for cost-effective parallel computing. Clusters/networks of computers (workstations/PCs/SMPs) built using commodity hardware and software are playing a major role in redefining the concept of  supercomputing. As a whole, clusters are becoming an alternative to MPPs and supercomputers in many areas of application.


The CC-TEA 2000 workshop is the 4th event in the series of cluster computing related activities organised at the PDPTA conference. Further information on previous events can be found at home pages of: CC-TEA'99, HPC on Clusters'98, and SSI Clusters'97. All of them are held in Las Vegas, USA in conjunction with the PDPTA conference series. CC-TEA 2000 will serve as a forum to present the latest research results of the work by international researchers, developers, and users. The focus of this workshop will be on both  hardware and software aspects of computing on clusters. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

Submission should include authors names, affiliations, addresses 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. Please submit full paper not exceeding 7 single spaced pages in file of the paper (preferably viewable by ghostview); 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. Please submit full paper for consideration to this workshop to Toni Cortes ( by email.


All papers selected for this workshop by peer-review process will be published in the PDPTA'2000 conference proceedings through CSREA Press, USA.
