May 12, 2015 Release

IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
September 8-11, 2015
Chicago, IL, USA


The IEEE Cluster 2015 provides a forum for both academia and industry
professionals to present their latest research findings in all aspects
of cluster, cloud, and grid technologies in the form of a posters,
which will be included in the conference proceedings. Posters will be
presented during the same session, during the conference.
Additionally, authors may submit posters for publication on the web.

Participants submitting proceedings-published posters are required to
submit a short paper (2 pages) describing the poster content, the
research supporting it, and the relevance and importance to the
cluster, cloud, and grid computing community. If accepted, this short
paper will be published in the proceedings of the conference.

Participants submitting web-published posters are required to submit a
short 1-page extended abstract. These abstracts will not be included
in the conference proceedings. Both proceedings-published and web-published
posters will be displayed during the conference. We encourage accepted
authors of demos to prepare a poster to accompany their demo. All
accepted posters (including posters prepared for demos) will be posted 
on the
conference website.


The Student Mentoring Program is not just another publication venue but
an opportunity to meet peers and network with senior colleagues.
Interested students can apply through a simple, non-competitive procedure,
by providing a 2-page description of their person vision for their career,
i.e.,  where they come from, what they are interested in, what their
career objectives are,  and most importantly, what their research vision 
For example, PhD students might  wish to describe their PhD proposal and
explain why their contributions are relevant for the scientific community.
Students' applications should be endorsed by the student's advisers.

All 2-page submissions is reviewed for review by the Program
Committee, with a friendly
feedback returned to the students. The objective is to host as many
motivated students as
possible in the program. Note that there is no scientific endorsement
of the scientific
contents by the conference, so that this application cannot be
considered as a scientific

Selected students will participate in fun activities as well as in the
regular conference.


Several travel awards are sponsored by the National Science Foundation
for students enrolled in American institutions who participates in the
Student Mentoring Program
(http://www.mcs.anl.gov/ieeecluster2015/student-program/). Students
with accepted posters or papers must also apply to and participate in
the Student Mentoring Program to be eligible for the travel award. The

Notice of travel awards will be made prior to the conference. The
travel awards will be distributed post-conference in the form of
