SCOPE: Myrinet Networks are currently emerging as a new and widely discussed way of interconnecting multiple processing nodes in switched SAN, LAN and campus-wide backbones. The Myrinet technology is a very efficient reliable Gigabit per second interconnect that allows to reach the network throughput and very low latency that is needed by challenging applications like cluster computing, video toolbox, high availability servers, Internet caches, etc. The objective of the First Myrinet User Group Conference 2000 is to bring together researchers actively involved in the development and applications of Myrinet technology. Through presentations, industrial sessions and open discussions. We aim to exchange experiences, to review successes and setbacks, to identify promising research avenues and application domains, to foster new collaborations. TOPICS OF INTEREST: Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Myrinet drivers and low level APIs - user-level communication layers and high performance protocols - support of programming models on Myrinet (MPI, PVM, ...) - performance evaluation, monitoring, and benchmarking - comparison to other SAN/LAN technologies - issues in Building Scalable Services - file Systems and Parallel I/O - job and network resource Management - data Distribution and Load Balancing - programming Paradigms/Environment for Clusters - protocols, routing, and topologies - configuration and management of large Myrinet clusters - Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Applications on Myrinet Clusters PROCEEDINGS: The workshop proceedings (containing accepted papers) will be published by INRIA. The proceedings will also be available on the Web. PAPER SUBMISSIONS: Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers to the Program Chair. All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee members and external referees. Please ensure that papers does not exceed ten (10) single-spaced pages using 12 point size type on A4 pages. The paper can include figures, tables, references, etc. The paper should include an abstract of approximately 100 to 150 words. Please include contact address, keywords, figures, and key references (not to be included in the word count). Authors must submit their papers electronically via the web page : http://resam.univ-lyon1.fr/MUG For more information please contact : email@example.com IMPORTANT DATES: Submission of papers (extension): May 15th, 2000 Notification of acceptance: June 5th, 2000 Camera ready manuscripts: July 5th, 2000 First MUG Conference: September 28th and 29th, 2000

Lyon, the natural crossroads between northern Europe and the Mediterranean coast, is located in the heart of the Rhône-Alpes region, an area of greatly contrasted topography with the Alps to the east, the Massif Central plateau to the west, and the Saône-Rhône valley sweeping down the middle. Lyon is France's second city, and in its quiet, unassertive way, it is truly one of the great cities of Europe, with a visible history spanning 2,000 years, a Renaissance old quarter, a clutch of outstanding museums, two scenic rivers, one of the largest and most beguiling parks in Europe, and a lively arts scene. More information about Lyon and MUG location can be obtained via the web page.
