ACM 2000  Java Grande Conference

Sponsored by ACM  

San Francisco, California, June 3-4, 2000

The Java Grande Conference focuses on the use of Java in the broad area of high-performance computing; including engineering and scientific applications, simulations, data-intensive applications, and other emerging application areas that exploit parallel and distributed computing or combine communication and computing. A day of tutorials will be held on the day following the conference. The conference precedes the JavaOne 2000 conference, which would enable the Java Grande attendees to expose themselves to the latest in basic Java Technology.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate timely results, technologies, or experiences that are most likely to have impact on the use of Java in high performance computing systems.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:


Papers should report new research and should not exceed 5000 words (approximately 10 pages typeset on 16 point spacing, or 15 typewritten double-spaced pages). The program committee will review each submission and select papers based on originality, timeliness, relevance, and clarity. All accepted papers will be presented at the conference, and published in the conference proceedings.

Electronic submission is strongly encouraged. Please e-mail a Postscript or PDF copy of your submission to or send  15 hard copies to the program chair. Submissions must be received by January 17, 2000.
Authors will be notified by Feb 24, 2000.

Authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign a copyright release form. Proceedings will be distributed at the conference and will subsequently be available from ACM. Papers published in proceedings are eligible for subsequent publication in refereed ACM journals at the discretion of the editor of the particular journal. Papers describing essentially the same work must not have been published elsewhere or be simultaneously under consideration for publication elsewhere.

People interested in contributing a tutorial (.5 or 1 day) should contact the program chair by Jan 31, 2000.  The tutorials will be held on June 5, 2000.

Important Dates:

Papers due:  Jan 17, 2000.
Tutorial Proposals due:  Jan 31, 2000.
Acceptance notice:  Feb. 24, 2000
Final Papers due: March 24, 2000
