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 2004 workshop organized at the CCGrid 2004 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.

You can find here program and slides of last DSM workshop.

Paper Submissions

Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines, see Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer. Electronic submission by email is strongly encouraged. Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. Please email your papers to, which is the preferred method for submission. Put "DSM2004 submission" in the subject of the email.

Proceedings All papers selected for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will be published as a part of the CCGrid 2004 Proceedings. It is expected that the proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA.
