21st IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (IEEE Cluster 2019)
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, September 23-26, 2019

Important dates
* Poster submissions open: June 14, 2019
* Posters due: July 22, 2019
* Poster Acceptance Notification: July 31, 2019
* Camera-ready deadline: August 12, 2019

Clusters remain the primary system architecture for building many of today's
rapidly evolving computing infrastructures and are used to solve some of the
most world's most complex problems. The challenges to make them scalable,
efficient, productive, and increasingly effective requires a community effort
in the areas of cluster system design, advancing the capabilities of the
software stack, system management and monitoring, and the design of algorithms,
methods, and applications to leverage the overall infrastructure.

Following the successes of previous IEEE Cluster conferences, for IEEE Cluster
2019 we again solicit high-quality original work that advances the
state-of-the-art in clusters and closely related fields. All posters will be
rigorously peer-reviewed for their originality, technical depth and correctness,
potential impact, relevance to the conference, and quality of presentation.

Topics of interest include:

Application, Algorithms, and Libraries
* HPC and Big Data application studies on large-scale clusters
* Applications at the boundary of HPC and Big Data
* New applications for converged HPC/Big Data clusters
* Application-level performance and energy modeling and measurement
* Novel algorithms on clusters
* Hybrid programming techniques in applications and libraries (e.g., MPI+X)
* Cluster benchmarks
* Application-level libraries on clusters
* Effective use of clusters in novel applications
* Performance evaluation tools

Architecture, Network/Communications, and Management
* Node and system architecture for HPC and Big Data clusters
* Architecture for converged HPC/Big Data clusters
* Energy-efficient cluster architectures
* Packaging, power and cooling
* Accelerators, reconfigurable and domain-specific hardware

* Middleware for Big Data management
* Cluster-based cloud architectures for Big Data
* Storage systems supporting the convergence of HPC and Big Data processing
* 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

Poster Submission:
Participants must submit a 2-page extended abstract (including references) describing
the poster content, and the research ideas in the poster. If accepted, this extended
abstract will be published in the proceedings of the conference. Posters will be
prominently displayed and presented during a session in the conference. Additionally,
posters will be made publicly available on the conference website.

The extended abstract should be structured similar to a technical paper, and may not
exceed 2 letter-sized (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the
IEEE format for conference proceedings (PDF, single-spaced, double column, 10pt text).

Submissions must be in PDF format. Since the camera-ready version of accepted
extended abstracts must be compliant with the IEEE Xplore format for publication,
submitted abstracts must conform to the following Xplore layout, page limit, and font size.

* Submissions are required to be no more than 2 pages (including references)
* Submissions must be single-spaced, 2-column numbered pages in IEEE Xplore
  format (8.5x11-inch paper, margins in inches -- top: 0.75, bottom: 1.0,
  sides:0.625, and between columns:0.25, main text: 10pt).
* Extended abstracts and posters will NOT be reviewed double-blind. Author names and
   affiliations should be included in the submission, and appropriate citations of prior work
   must be included.
* LaTeX and Word Templates are available here
* Only web-based submissions are allowed.
* Extended abstacts must be submitted via our electronic submission system:

Patrick Bridges - University of New Mexico
Ron Brightwell - Sandia National Laboratories

David Boehme - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories
