The 2001 International Workshop on
Cluster Computing Education


Organized at the 
IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid 

 May 16-18, 2001
Brisbane, Australia

In Cooperation with the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)


Call for Papers


      In the last few years, cluster computing on networks of stand alone computers, e. g., workstations and PCs, has been unifying parallel computing, distributed computing, high performance computing, high available computing and web computing.

      As the world of computing evolves, the education of students must change to incorporate the new ideas, techniques, and tools of cluster computing. This workshop explores these changes and how they impact both undergraduate and graduate education.

      With the advent of networked inexpensive high performance computers and freely available cluster computing tools, most educational institutions have the opportunity to provide their students with a high quality learning experience in cluster computing. However, these same institutions need direction in what and how to teach cluster computing. So far the work done by educators has been fragmented. This workshop will bring together educators around the world to discuss cluster computing and how best to teach it.

CLUSTER-EDU 2001 solicits papers that focus on any aspect of cluster computing education, including but definitely not limited to:

Paper Submission

     Papers submitted to CLUSTER-EDU 2001 must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere.  The manuscript must be written in English and be at most ten pages long (including figures and tables, and references) 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 will print on a PostScript printer to one of the workshop chairs by email. All papers will be reviewed. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register for the conference and present the paper. The deadline for submissions is November 4, 2000. Decisions will be announced by December 20, 2000. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of CCGrid2001, to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
