Challenges of Large Applications in Distributed Environments
June 7th, 2004, Honolulu, HI

(In conjunction with the 13th International Symposium on High
Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC 13))


Advances in networking, high-end computers, large data stores and middleware
capabilities are ushering in a new era of large scale, distributed
which dynamically marshal resources across a heterogeneous, distributed
environment. Along with these opportunities come new challenges. The goal
of this workshop is to encourage innovation by addressing the complex issues
that arise in large-scale applications of distributed computation, and
to promote the development of innovative applications that effectively use
distributed resources and adapt to a wide range of heterogeneity and
in space and time. This includes development, deployment, management and
evaluations of large scale applications in science, engineering, medicine,
business, economics, education, and other disciplines, on Grids and other
distributed heterogeneous and dynamic computing environments. Issues
related to irregularity of applications and algorithms in space and time,
variability in programming environments, heterogeneity of software and
hardware platforms, dynamics, ad hoc behaviors and unreliability of
environments, etc., in the context of these applications are of particular

This workshop promotes the exchange of ideas, information, and novel
developments among universities, federal laboratories, and industry.
It fosters multidisciplinary collaborative solutions to issues arising in
large-scale distributed applications. Topics of interest to this workshop
include (but are not limited to) applications that illustrate advances in
the following areas:

* Very large-scale distributed applications
* Autonomic applications and runtime systems
* Application-specific portals in distributed environments
* Distributed problem-solving environments
* Distributed, collaborative science applications
* Heterogeneous spatial and temporal applications, e.g., with heterogeneous
   in time, space and domain
* Distributed, multidimensional, dynamically adaptive applications
* Applications of new theories and tools for constructing adaptive software
* Variable granularity environments
* Examples of distributed applications benefiting from advances in
   o Resource management, dynamic scheduling or load balancing in
     heterogeneous environments
   o Runtime support for intelligent, adaptive systems
   o Programming models for heterogeneous and dynamic computation
   o Portability, quality of service, or fault-tolerance in cluster and grid
   o Performance analysis, evaluation and prediction of adaptive systems

CLADE 2004 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Please
submit full papers (10 pages maximum, IEEE CS format). Electronic submission
is strongly encouraged. Hard copies will be accepted only if electronic
is not possible. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the
authors to register and present the paper. Any questions concerning hardcopy
submissions or any other issues may be directed to the Program Chair.

* Submission deadline: February 01, 2004
* Notification of acceptance: March 01, 2004
* Final Manuscript due: March 28, 2004
* Workshop: June 07, 2004

The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press
and distributed at
the conference.

The best papers will be chosen for journal-length papers in an issue of
Cluster Computing,
The Journal of Networks, Software Tools and Applications.
