         IEEE Cluster 2022 - Call for Papers
   September 6-9, 2022, Heidelberg, Germany

       *** Full Papers due: May 13, 2022 ***

Review the double-blind review policy:

IEEE Cluster 2022 is the 24th edition of the IEEE Cluster conference
series, organized in cooperation with SIGHPC.

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 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

Following the successes of previous IEEE Cluster conferences, for IEEE
Cluster 2022, which will be held September 5 - 8, 2022 in Heidelberg,
Germany, we again solicit high-quality original work that advances the
state-of-the-art in clusters and closely related fields.

All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for their originality,
technical depth and correctness, potential impact, relevance to the
conference, and quality of presentation. Research papers must clearly
demonstrate novel research contributions while papers reporting experiences
must clearly describe the lessons learned and the resulting impact, along
with the utility of the approach in comparison to previous work.

Authors must indicate the primary topic area of their submissions from the
four topic areas provided below. In addition, they may optionally rank
their paper relative to the overall set of topics. The papers may be
submitted as either a full 10-page paper or as a shorter 4-page paper
submission. Please note that references are not counted in the limits on
the number of pages and a 10-page submission may be accepted with a caveat
of transforming it into a 4-page version for presentation at the conference.

IEEE Cluster 2022 will use a **double-blind review process**, which is a
change from previous years. For an explanation of this process, please
refer to the following link: https://clustercomp.org/2022/double_blind.html
