This series of workshops is born from IPPS'98
that was held in Orlando, Florida, in April 1998, where it appeared that
Java was becoming more and more important for the IPPS/SPDP community,
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.
This workshop is the third in the series. The first edition was
held in Puerto
Rico in 1999 and the second in Cancun
in 2000. It focuses on Java for parallel and distributed computing
and supportive environments. One of its aims is to bring together the IPDPS
community around Java and Java based technologies, and to provide an opportunity
to share experience and views of current trends and activity in the domain.
Each year, new topics are being added to the scope of the workshop; this
year we will also consider submissions related to embeded Java and wireless
devices used to setup seamless computing environments.
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.
Java for parallel and distributed computing;
Internet for parallel and distributed computing;
Software tools and environments;
Code transformations, compilers, etc.;
Real world distributed and parallel applications based on Java;
Theoretical foundations and formal methods;
Compiler technology and performance issues;
Data mining and financial applications;
Software portability, components, and reuse;
Standards for object interoperability;
Embeded Java and wireless devices, seamless distributed computing environment;
ACM 1998 Workshop on Java for High-Performance Network Computing
First UK workshop on Java for High-Performance Network Computing
Papers should not exceed 3000 words (approximately 6 pages), including
figures and references. All accepted papers will be presented at the
workshop.This year, IPDPS will be going to a single CD-ROM that will combine
the proceedings of the main symposium and the workshops. We will have a
printed book of abstracts of all papers for attendees to carry with them
at the conference.
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 3000
word paper, not to exceed 6 pages, including figures and references.
must be either electronic (encouraged) or postal (discouraged). We strongly
encourage authors to use the IEEE
guidelines for preparing their papers since this will be a requirement
if the paper is accepted. You can find several style files, including Latex
macros, in this
Electronic submissions must be received by 9:00 AM Middle European Time,
Monday, November 20, 2000. Submissions may be sent as a single e-mail
message 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 IEEE
guidelines). Electronic submissions are successful if acknowledged by a
receipt message by Tuesday, November 21, 2000. 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 Monday, November 28, 2000.
If your submission is too large, you can either split your mail into multiple
messages (discouraged) or upload the Postscript via anonymous ftp (encouraged).
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 Monday, November 20, 2000;
5 copies must be provided.
