The Eighteenth International Symposium on High Performance Distributed
Computing (HPDC), to be held in Garching, near Munich, Germany, on June
11-13 2009, is a forum for presenting the latest research findings on the
design and use of parallel and distributed systems for high end computing,
collaboration, data analysis, and other innovative applications.

HPDC welcomes submissions covering all aspects of high-performance
distributed computing, Grids, and global computing ensembles. New
academic and scholarly research emphasizing empirical and reproducible
results as well as investigative expositions of successful and innovative
application and deployment efforts are particularly encouraged.


Topics of interest for HPDC 2009 include (but are not limited to):

- HPDC architectures: HPC systems, Grids, Computing Clouds, SOA for HPDC

- High end communications: Software/hardware/architecture and networking
(incl. Terabit networks systems and services)

- Data management and transport
(incl. High performance I/O and file systems)

- Operating system technologies for high performance distributed computing
(incl. Virtualization for HPDC systems)

- Software environments:
- Programming frameworks
- Language/compiler support
- Performance analysis, modeling, simulation and prediction

- Grid middleware
- Security, configuration, policy, and management issues
- Workflow management
- Resource management, scheduling and load-balancing

- Applications and algorithms
- Parallel and distributed algorithms
- Multicore algorithms and software implementations
- Multimedia, tele-immersive, and collaborative applications

- Fault tolerance, reliability and availability for HPDC applications


All papers will be rigorously reviewed by a distinguished international
program committee, with a strong focus on the combination of rigorous
scientific results and practical impact.

In particular, research papers must clearly demonstrate research
contribution and novelty; experience/applications/systems papers
must clearly demonstrate impact and/or lessons learned and/or
design choices.

Paper Submissions:

Authors are invited to submit an abstract describing the contents of
the paper including highlights and key characteristics before
December 22, 2008. The abstracts are used to assign appropriate
reviewers for the technical papers, which must be submitted until
January 12, 2009.

Details for formatting will be provided on the HPDC 2009 webpage.
Such technical papers must be at most 10 pages, INCLUDING figures and references. Papers that exceed this length will be rejected outright.

These papers should be written to be self-contained and to provide the
technical substance required for the program committee to evaluate the
paper's contribution. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference.

Submitted papers must not have appeared in or be under consideration for
another conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted
to another forum during the HPDC 2009 review process.

Papers should be submitted electronically (PDF or postscript) via
the HPDC 2009 conference web site at

Please note that, as with previous HPDC conferences, there will be
NO EXTENSIONS on the paper submission deadlines.

Paper abstract submission deadline: December 22, 2008
Paper submission deadline: January 12, 2009


The HPDC proceedings are expected to be published by ACM, and the plan is
to distribute them at the conference.



In addition to full papers, HPDC 2009 also allows the submission of
posters. The conference especially encourages such submission from
Ph.D. students so that they can present their early ideas to a larger

For posters, authors are invited to submit a 2 page short description
including title, authors, and affiliations until December 22, 2008.
Revisions of the poster descriptions will be possible until
January 12, 2009.

The formatting for the posters is identical to the full papers, but
with the 2 page limitation. The plan is to publish posters also in
the proceedings.

Upon acceptance of the poster, authors must commit to attend the
conference and to present their poster. Posters will be displayed
on boards which are expected to be in the size of 841mm x 1189mm
(DIN A0).

Posters will be presented during the conference in the coffee break
area and authors are expected to be available for discussions and
questions during the welcome reception on June 11, 2009.



The Eighteens International Symposium on High-Performance Distributed
Computing (HPDC) will be a forum for presenting the latest research
findings on the design and use of parallel and distributed systems for high
end computing, collaboration, data analysis, and other innovative

HPDC 2009 will feature a demo and exhibit session consisting of prototypes
and technology artifacts demonstrating HPDC concepts, mechanisms and
applications. Submissions to the demonstration and exhibit session are
welcome, both from industry and academia, demonstrating state-of-the-art
applications of high-performance distributed computing, grids, and global
computing ensembles. Demos of new scholarly research emphasizing empirical
and reproducible results as well as exhibitions of investigative
expositions of successful application and deployment efforts are
particularly encouraged.

Demos and Exhibit Submissions:

Please send an email to the Demo/Exhibit Co-Chairs (Erwin Laure) at containing:

- Title
- Short description (5-10 lines)
- Contact information (Name/Address/Email)
- URL to a Web site describing the demo (optional)
- Resource requirements (optional; please note that we may not be able to
accommodate you with all your needs; we will let you know ahead of time
on what we cannot provide for you.)

Entries will be judged by a separate subcommittee led by the demo/exhibit

Demo/Exhibit Request Deadline: April 15, 2009
Demo/Exhibit Notification: May 1, 2009

Demo/Exhibit Logistics:

Demos will be held along with the reception on Thursday evening of the
conference, June 11, 2009. The demos will be advertised both on the
conference web site and in a leaflet within the participants' package
with a list of demonstrations (title, abstract, people/organization).
In addition, there will be a short introductory session at the beginning
of the reception to introduce the demo groups and to announce their demos.
The demo groups are encouraged to provide the demo session chair with a
short write-up (two paragraphs no longer than 300 words) that briefly
introduces their group and their demos. After the announcements, each
demo group will give one-on-one demos to the HPDC attendees during the
reception. There will be food and drinks in the room to ensure a good

Each demo group will be provided with a table, a couple of chairs, a
power outlet, an extension cord, poster boards, and access to the
conference wireless network connection, which should remain set up for
the entire conference (as an exhibit) if you would like to show your
work one-on-one or during breaks. We will provide you with a detailed
description of the standard demo stand layout ahead of time. The demo
room will be available (with working network connections and the basic
setup) to demo groups before the demo session for groups to set up their
demos. If you need an extensive amount of time to setup your demo, you
would need to coordinate with the Demo/Exhibit Co-Chair ahead of time.

Demo/Exhibit Registration Fees:

There will be two flavors of demos. Research (academic) demos will only
require registration to the conference. The industry demos (i.e. demos
of a commerical product) will be charged EUR 5000.



The HPDC 2009 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be
held with the Eighteens International Conference on High Performance
Distributed Computing, which will be held in Garching near Munich on
June 11-13, 2009. The dates for the workshops are June 09-10, 2009.

HPDC Workshops provide a forum for discussion among researchers and
practitioners of areas of special interest within HPDC. Within this
scope, several types of workshop organizations are encouraged.
Workshops may be organized by invitation or via an open call for
participation. Organizers may ask participants to give talks, submit
short position papers, or full papers with a peer-review process.
Workshop organizers are expected to be active in the field where
they propose a workshop.

To foster interaction, the workshops are full-day events limited to
30-50 participants. As a reference, Web pages of previous HPDC
conference sites (and links to various workshop sites) are accessible

Workshop Submissions:
