Call for SC2002 Tutorials Proposals:

The tutorials at the SC Conferences provide one of the highlights of the
technical program and they are a key reason for many people to attend
the conference.  The tutorials provide attendees with opportunities to
learn from and interact with internationally recognized experts on
topics related to high performance computing ranging across
technological trends, theory, and practice.

The goal of the tutorials program is to provide a broad range of
technically enriching courses to SC2002 conference attendees. As such,
proposals are being solicited for tutorials, ranging from introductory
to advanced levels, in topic areas related to high performance computing
and communications.

Proposals are requested for, but not limited to, the following topic
     *Super* Systems
         High performance system architectures
         Clusters and distributed systems
         Innovative processor and system architectures for HPC
         Memory architectures for HPC
         High performance I/O and storage architectures
         High performance networking technology
     *Super* Centers
         Benchmarking: performance measurement, prediction, and analysis
         Large systems administration and/or resource management
         Computer and network security
         Disaster recovery
     *Super* Programming
         Application frameworks
         Parallel programming paradigms and languages
         Software engineering for portable performance and scalability
         Tools for software development, debugging, and tuning
         High performance I/O software architectures
         Optimization tricks of the trade
     *Super* Methods
         Algorithms, numerical methods, and libraries
         Scientific and information visualization
         Large databases
         Grid computing
         Collaboration and immersive technologies
     *Super* Applications
         Computational biology and bioinformatics
         Computational fluid dynamics
         Computational mechanics
         Data mining
         National security and defense
         New HPC applications areas

Tutorials may be proposed for either a full-day (six hours) or a
half-day (three hours), and should be designed to appeal to a segment of
the SC2002 attendees. Tutorials submissions must include the following:

* A description of the proposed tutorial, including:
       - Title
       - Length of tutorial
       - Content level
       - Previous presentations of the tutorial (if any)
       - Abstract (200 word max; ASCII)
       - Detailed description (4 page max; ASCII or PDF)
           (include target audience and prerequisites)
       - Course outline/schedule (ASCII or PDF)
       - Url to sample slides (optional)
       - Sample slides (PDF or PPT) (optional)
* Contact information for each presenter (identify a lead/contact)
       - Name
       - Affiliation
       - Postal Address
       - Phone
       - Fax
       - Email Address
       - Short Vitae including a list of tutorials or short courses taught

Proposals will be selected either as-submitted or with modifications,
based upon the evaluation of the tutorials program committee.  Full day
proposals may include up to 4 presenters, half day proposals may include
up to 2 presenters.  For each full-day tutorial, a $2000 honorarium will
be shared among presenters, and each presenter will be reimbursed for
reasonable travel expenses and three days per diem, including a lodging
stipend. For half-day tutorials, a $1000 honorarium will be shared among
presenters, and each presenter will be reimbursed for reasonable travel
expenses and two days per diem, including a lodging stipend.
