5th Annual Workshop on Linux Cluster for Super Computing (LCSC 2004)

Clusters for High Performance Computing, Data-Intensive Challenges, and Grid Solutions

The combination of commodity hardware and open source operating systems have become mainstream and cost-effective computing platforms for executing a wide range of parallel applications. Clusters and Grid Systems are becoming ubiquitous high performance computing infrastructure for the coordinated use of shared resources in a distributed environment. Along with these opportunities come new challenges; increased needs in transparency, scalability and usability in areas such as storage network and visualisation will require new solutions.

The aim of the workshop is to gather together both people with experience of building and maintaining clusters and people using or interested in using cluster resources. It serves as a meeting place for people from academia, government and industry. The workshop will address the hardware and software issues encountered during design as well deployed application's efficiency, portability and utilization.

We intend to cover the following topics:

  • Storage solutions for clusters and GRIDs.
  • Distributed computing and GRID technologies
  • Applications adapted for using parallel and distributed resources
  • Software and tools for using and managing clusters
  • Scalability issues, benchmarking and tuning
  • Job scheduling strategies and accounting
  • New application areas
  • Update on the latest hardware developments

In addition to invited talks, there will be tutorials exhibits and vendor presentations.

The complete list of speakers and programme will be available at http://www.nsc.liu.se/lcsc/.
