High-Performance Grid and Cloud Computing Workshop

May 16, 2011, Anchorage, Alaska, USA

in conjunction with

International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium - IPDPS 2011
May 16-20, 2011,
Anchorage, Alasksa, USA



The eighth HPGC workshop will be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2011 in Anchorage, AL, USA on May 16 2011. It will give a forum to researchers and engineers to present their results in grid and cloud computing. Special areas of interest will be grid and cloud middleware, grid and cloud applications, data distribution and replication, fault tolerance and efficiency of grid and cloud applications, programming models.

Call for Papers: Journal of Grid Computing
Special Issue on High Performance Grid and Cloud Computing
Deadline: Sept. 20, 2011

  • Applications: Theory and practice of grid and cloud computing.
  • Infrastructure: Implementation and evaluation of middleware for distributed computing.
  • Management and Monitoring: Account management, resource allocation and pricing.
  • Scheduling: Resource allocation, application scheduling and containerization, workflow management.
  • Networking: Bandwidth management and reservation.
  • Partitioning and Load Balancing: Mapping data and applications on distributed resources.
  • Programming Models: Methods for remote execution and inter-task communications.
  • Virtualization: Virtualization of computing, storage, and network resources.

Paper Submission

We invite submissions not exceeding eight single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns). Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference, or journal. Each paper will be refereed by at least three independent reviewers. Paper submission indicates the intention of the author to present the paper at the HPGC workshop at IPDPS 2011.

Submissions are due January 7, 2011, to

The HPGC workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society along with the IPDPS conference proceedings.
