Call for Posters - Deadline extended to June 15th, 2016

The IEEE Cluster 2016 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.

The topics of interest are:  

Area 1: Application, Algorithms, and Libraries
* HPC applications on clusters
* Performance modeling and measurement
* Novel algorithms on clusters
* Hybrid programming techniques (e.g., MPI+OpenMP)
* Cluster benchmarks
* Application-level libraries on clusters
* Effective use of clusters in novel applications
* Performance evaluation tools

Area 2: Architecture, Network/Communications, and Management
* Energy-efficient cluster architectures
* Node and system architecture
* Packaging, power and cooling
* GPU/ManyCore and heterogeneous clusters
* Interconnect/memory architectures
* Single system image clusters
* Administration and maintenance tools

Area 3: Programming and System Software
* Cluster system software/operating systems
* Cloud-enabling cluster technologies and virtualization
* Energy-efficient middleware
* Cluster system-level protocols and APIs
* Cluster security
* Resource and job management
* Programming and software development environments on clusters
* Fault tolerance and high-availability

Area 4: Data, Storage, and Visualization
* Cluster architectures for big data storage and processing
* Middleware for big data management
* Cluster-based cloud architectures for big data
* File systems and I/O libraries
* Support and integration of non-volatile memory
* Visualization clusters and tiled displays
* Big data visualization tools
* Programming models for big data processing
* Big data application studies on cluster architectures

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.
Posters will be displayed during the conference and will be posted on the conference website.

Display Poster Size
The poster boards will be 24x36? (60x90cm), portrait. Please make sure that your posters are no larger than that.
