Call for Papers


The growing popularity of the Internet along with the availability of powerful computers and high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components are changing the way we do computing. Two advanced computing themes have emerged: "cluster computing" and "global network computing" (grid computing).

Cluster Computing
The availability of powerful microprocessors and high-speed networks as commodity components are making clusters/networks of computers an appealing vehicle for cost-effective high performance and high availability computing. Cluster computing has become a hot research topic amongst academics and within the industry community, including system designers, network developers, language designers, standardising forums, algorithm developers, graduate students and faculties. The use of clusters as a computing platform, however, is not just limited to scientific and engineering applications: there are many business applications that can benefit from the use of clusters too.

Global Network Computing (Grid Computing)

Network computing is the clustering or coupling of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources such as supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and special classes of devices, which allows them to be used as a single unified resource and thus forms what is popularly known as computational grids.  The computational grid is analogous to the electric power grid and aims to couple geographically distributed resources and offer consistent and inexpensive access to resources irrespective of their physical location or access point.


CCGrid2001 is a millennium symposium, and is a follow up on (or merger of) 2000 symposium held in Beijing, China and CC-TEA workshop series held in the USA for the past four years (1997-2000). CCGrid2001, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, is designed to bring together international cluster and network-based computing researchers, developers, and users. The symposium will also serve as a forum to present the latest work, and highlight related activities from around the world. The following topics concerning Cluster or Grid computing are of interest, but are not limited to:
Cluster Computing Technologies & Applications

Grid Computing Technologies & Applications


Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 (eight) pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines. Exact IEEE instructions can be accessed from:

Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that is viewable using ghostview or the Adobe Acrobat Reader respectively.

Full papers will be reveiwed. The results presented in papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted elsewhere for publication. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

(Before submitting a paper you may wish to consider one of the special workshops / sessions - see here for further details). Please send full papers for consideration for the main session through the web based submission system here. Note only uncompressed postscript and pdf files will be accepted. In exceptional circumstances hard copy submissions can be mailed to the PC chair (Dr Paul Roe), however, electronic submission is strongly encouraged. Queries may be sent to


All papers selected, as per reviewers recommendations for this conference, will appear in proceedings published through the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA. The proceedings will also be made available online through the IEEE digital library following the conference.


The CC-GRID symposium organisers are pleased announce that the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC) will be presenting two best paper awards. The best papers will be selected based on recommendations by the program committee members and external reviewers. The awards committee will re-review all papers short-listed for the awards. Authors of award-papers will also be invited to extend their paper for inclusion in FGCS journal special issue based on CCGrid 2001.


In cooperation with the "Elsevier Science" Press, we are pleased to announce that there will be a special issue of the journal: based on the CCGrid 2001 symposium. Authors of INNOVATIVE paper awards along with few selected papers will be invited to extend their papers for inclusion in FGCS journal special issue scheduled for publication after the symposium (tentatively late 2001).


Many special workshops / sessions are being organised as part of CCGrid2001. These special events are expected to be highly specialiased and focused, and all selected papers will be published in the CCGrid2001 proceedings. For further details see workshops/special sessions page.
