BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - IEEE Cluster 2013 conference organizers are seeking input from the high performance computing community, in an effort to make the "Clusters and Cyberinfrastructure Strategy" event as informative as possible. Hosted by Indiana University's Pervasive Technology Institute, Cluster 2013 will take place September 23-27, 2013, at the Hilton Hotel in Indianapolis.

The conference organizing committee recently made a call for keynote speakers. In the past, the IEEE Cluster conference keynotes have featured a variety of international leaders in the field, from "father of Beowulf" computer scientist Thomas Sterling to Liu GuangMing, director of the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin, China.

The committee welcomes keynote speaker suggestions for this year's conference. Please send ideas to Craig Stewart, executive director of Indiana University's Pervasive Technology Institute, associate dean of Research Technologies and general chair of the conference: stewart@iu.edu

The Cluster 2013 conference is also continuing to accept proposals for tutorials, technical papers, posters, panels and visualizations. All submissions are due May 18, 2013. (A one-week extension until May 25 will automatically be granted upon submission of an abstract by May 18.) Proposal submission and review will be handled via EasyChair at http://bit.ly/YD8ivr. Conference proceedings will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Conference organizers are particularly interested in content related to:

  • Current and future directions in cluster technology
  • Clusters driving innovation in industrial and academic research
  • Clusters in education and outreach (technical papers describing formal education and outreach programs, as well as position papers about how the community can help educate and train a twenty-first century workforce)
  • Clusters and clouds in cyberinfrastructure strategy
  • Clusters in distributed visualization
