                                 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
        2014 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
                                        (Cluster 2014)

                               September 22  - 26, 2014
                                          Madrid, Spain

Clusters are the base for building today's rapidly evolving cloud and 
HPC infrastructure, and are used to solve some of the most complex 
problems. The challenge to make them scalable, efficient, and more 
functional requires the common effort of the cluster community in the 
areas of cluster system design, management and monitoring -- at 
hardware, system, middleware, and application level. The Cluster 
conference has precisely this goal: to be a major venue for such 
collective effort.

This year's conference acknowledges the recent birth of the Big Data 
phenomenon, strongly reflected in our keynotes and panels:

- Robert L. Grossman (University of Chicago and Open Data Group) 
discusses the goal of bringing efficient cluster support to 
data-intensive computing.

- Frédéric Desprez (Inria) highlights the challenges posed by accurate, 
large-scale experimentation, the instruments needed for performing such 
experiments, and the lessons learned from the Grid'5000 experience in 
this respect.

- Dan Stanzione (Texas Advanced Computing Center) discusses open issues 
related to data analysis and management for the open science community.

- A first panel addresses the question: will Big Data transform cluster 
architectures? A second panel discusses the issue of performance 
evolution: are clusters too powerful for our users?

We are happy to announce a rich, high-quality conference program with 29 
research papers accepted out of 122 valid submissions that went through 
a selective reviewing process (over 450 reviews), resulting in 23.8% 
acceptance rate. In addition, 16 reviewed posters will be dedicated to 
promising emergent research directions. The conference also includes two 
industry sessions with talks from major players with high impact in the 
area of cluster computing (Bull, Mellanox, Nvidia, ParTec), two 
workshops, two panels and six tutorials.

A novelty this year is the creation of the Student Mentoring Program. 
Today's Master and PhD students are our future colleagues. The future 
development of cluster, grid and cloud computing falls on their 
shoulders. The Cluster conference is proud to contribute to their 
education through a specific mentoring program all along the week.

The Organizing Committee is happy to welcome you to Madrid and hopes you 
find Cluster 2014 an exciting and intellectually stimulating event!
