From IPPS'98 that
was held in Orlando, Florida, in April 1998, it appears that Java is becoming
more and more important for the IPPS/SPDP community, i.e. for parallel
and distributed computing. Many of the papers that were presented in Orlando
referred to Java. Furthermore the attendance of the tutorial on Parallel
and Distributed Computing Using Java that was given there clearly demonstrated
the widespread interest.
The success of other workshops focusing on Java also shows the importance
of the topic. The ACM
1998 Workshop on Java for High-Performance Network Computing that was
held at the University of Stanford, Palo Alto, California, February 28th
and March 1st, 1998 (following Syracuse in 1996 and Las Vegas in 1997)
is a notable example. This workshop focused on high performance computing.
This inspired the UK workshop
Java for High Performance Network Computing that was held in Septembre
1998 at the University of Southampton.
This workshop focuses on Java for parallel and distributed computing
and supportive environments. One of its aims is to bring together the IPPS/SPDP
community around Java, and to provide an opportunity to share experience
and views of current trends and activity in the domain.
Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:
Papers that describe existing implementations or work in progress, or outline
new problems or important issues are also welcome. The number of accepted
papers will be limited to approximately ten. All accepted papers will be
presented at the workshop and published as joint proceedings for all IPPS/SPDP
workshops in the Springer
Java for parallel and distributed computing;
Software tools and environments;
Code transformations, compilers, etc.;
Real world distributed and parallel applications based on Java;
Meta-computing, and Internet applications Standardization
Theoretical foundations, formal methods Compiler technology, and performance
Real-time applications Multi-agent systems
Data mining Financial applications
Software portability, components, and reuse Standards for object interoperability
ACM 1998 Workshop on Java for High-Performance Network Computing
First UK workshop on Java for High-Performance Network Computing
Papers should not exceed 7500 words (approximately 15 pages), including
figures and references. All accepted papers will be presented at the
workshop and published as joint proceedings for all IPPS/SPDP workshops
in the Springer LNCS
series. They will also be available on the proceedings CD-rom.
All papers will be judged on originality, significance, correctness,
and clarity. It is essential to identify what was accomplished, explain
its significance, and include a comparison with previous work. Authors
should make every effort to make the technical content of their papers
understandable to a broad audience. If any author has published or presented
on a related topic in a journal or a previous conference, the summary should
explain how it advances such previous work.
Papers must describe work not previously published in refereed venues.
submission to this workshop and another publication outlet (conference
or journal) will be considered as grounds for rejection.
These are firm constraints; submissions not meeting the criteria
described above will not be considered.
Submissions consist of a 100-200 word ASCII summary and a 7500
word paper, not to exceed 15 pages in LNCS format, including
figures and references. Submissions must be either electronic (encouraged)
or postal (discouraged). We strongly encourage authors to use the LNCS
guidelines for preparing their papers since this will be a requirement
if the paper is accepted.
Electronic submissions must be received by 5:00 PM Middle European Time,
Friday, October 30, 1998. Submissions may be sent as a single e-mail
message (up to 1.6MB) to one of the co-chairs
(MIME attachments are allowed). The message should contain the filled out
form, the ASCII summary, and the paper. The paper should be in
form, which must be interpretable by Ghostscript. The Postscript
must use standard fonts, or include the necessary fonts, and must be prepared
for USLetter (8.5"x11") or A4 page sizes (preferably along the LNCS guidelines).
Electronic submissions are successful if acknowledged by a receipt message
by Monday, November 2, 1998. If you do not get this acknowledgement by
then but you sent a contribution in time, please get in touch with us via
e-mail or phone no later than Tuesday, November 3, 1998.
If your submission exceeds 1.6MB, you can either split your mail into multiple
messages (discouraged) or upload the Postscript via anonymous ftp (encouraged)
to the ftp://ftp.u-bordeaux.fr/incoming/javapdc/
directory. Ftp submissions should use the first author's last name plus
a 4 digit random number as base filenames (plus extensions) for their Postscript
files. Notice that incoming files are invisible to directory listings,
so do not worry if you cannot see your uploaded file! Ftp uploads should
be followed by an e-mail message as specified before, excluding the Postscript.
Authors who cannot meet these requirements should submit hardcopy by postal
Postal submissions must be sent to one of the co-chairs
by airmail and must be received on or before October 30, 1998; 10
copies (printed double-sided if possible) must be provided.
