21st IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (IEEE Cluster 2019)
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, September 23-27, 2019

Important Dates: 

* Workshop proposals due: May 1, 2019
* Workshop acceptance notification: May 15, 2019 
* Workshops held: September 27, 2019 

Experts in cluster computing are invited to share their expertise with the 
community by submitting proposals for workshops to be co-located with the 
IEEE Cluster 2019 conference. The Cluster 2019 workshop program will provide an  
opportunity to present preliminary work related to the topics covered by the 
conference and will give attendees access to the latest works-in-progress in  
the field. Workshop proposals can cover a broad range of topics on the design, 
use or management of clusters and supporting technologies from throughout the 
software stack. 

Topic Categories:
Topic Categories of interest include but are not limited to the following:

* Cluster node and system hardware;
* Cluster/distributed operating and runtime systems;
* Parallel programming models, language, runtimes and environments;
* Performance evaluation, analysis and optimization;
* Fault-tolerance, resilience, reliability and high availability;
* Data management and distributed and parallel file systems;
* Visualization, data analytics and workflows; 
* Cluster management tools including resource management;
* Power management, energy and cooling;
* High-performance networks and communication systems;
* Clouds and distributed systems;
* Combining and enabling unique workloads (e.g. concurrent machine learning, 
  data-centric computing, and compute-heavy applications);
* Security.

Submission Guidelines:
Proposals are limited to a three-page description that should include the 

* A title, an abstract (400 words maximum), and a syllabus;
* Discussion of the topic's relevance and workshop goals;
* A description of the target audience;
* An indication of duration: either half day or less, or half day to full day.
* If applicable, details on previous instantiations of the workshop, including 
  attendance numbers.

In addition to the three-page description, please include a brief biographical 
sketch of each workshop organizer (two pages maximum per organizer).

A single PDF file with all the material described above should be submitted to  
the Cluster 2019 conference on-line submission (URL link here)  system under 
the workshop track.  Acceptance of a proposed workshop will be made based on the 
quality, content and organization, and its relationship to key topic areas when 
compared with other submissions. 

Workshop length will be determined based on the number of papers that they
accept.  Workshops that accept:

* 10 or more papers will be provided space for a full day program;
* 7-9 papers will be provided space for 4.5 hours (not including breaks);
* 5-6 papers will be provided space for 3 hours (not including breaks);
* 3-4 papers will be provided space for a half hour per paper;
* fewer than 3 papers will be canceled.
