Call for Papers


With clusters based on high performance functionnalities (network, processing power....), DSM have a new role to play by providing easiness of programming a shared space combined with high performance architecture.

The DSM 2003 workshop organized at the CCGrid 2003 symposium will serve as a major forum to present and share the latest research results of the work by international researchers, developers, and users. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to :

We also encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing work, and application examplers, which demonstrate how DSM technology could be effectively deployed. We also welcome practical work which applies DSM in novel and interesting ways.

Paper Submissions
