The Cluster 2004 conference, to be held in beautiful San Diego, provides =
an open forum for researchers, practitioners, and users to present and =
discuss issues, directions, and results that will shape the future of =
cluster computing. The Cluster series of conferences is one of the =
flagship events sponsored by the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing =
(TFCC) since its inception in 1999. The competition among refereed =
papers was particularly strong this year, with 48 papers being selected =
as full papers from the 150 submitted papers. Besides the technical =
paper presentation, there will be three exciting keynote speakers, four =
tutorials, one workshop and exhibits to be arranged during the =
conference period.

San Diego is California's second largest city and the United States' =
seventh largest, San Diego boasts a citywide population of nearly 1.3 =
million residents and more than 2.8 million residents countywide. Within =
its borders of 4,200 sq. miles, San Diego County encompasses 18 =
incorporated cities and numerous other charming neighborhoods and =
communities, including downtown's historic Gaslamp Quarter, Little =
Italy, Coronado, La Jolla, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Escondido, La Mesa, =
Hillcrest, Barrio Logan, Chula Vista and more. Known for its =
near-idyllic climate, 70 miles of pristine beaches and dazzling array of =
world-class family attractions, including the World-Famous San Diego Zoo =
and Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld San Diego and LEGOLAND California, San =
Diego offers a wide variety of things to see and do, appealing to guests =
from around the world.
Cluster 2004 will be held at the Town and Country Resort, located in =
Mission Valley, just 10 minutes from the airport, right next to the San =
Diego Trolley, the Fashion Valley Mall, and the Riverwalk Golf course. =
Reservations should be made with the hotel directly. The conference rate =
of US$129.00 (which you can obtain by mentioning the "IEEE Cluster 2004" =
conference) will be guaranteed until August 28, 5PM PST. After this date =
rooms reserved for Cluster'04 will be given to anyone on a first-come =
first-serve basis. The Hotel online registration is available from =
http://grail.sdsc.edu/cluster2004/ where you can also find the online =
conference registration and the Cluster 2004 advanced program.
We look forward meeting you in San Diego!
