[DMANET] IEEE Cluster: submission deadline extended to March 25th AOE! (hard deadline)

Due to numerous requests, we have decided to provide a deadline
extension to March 25th (AOE) for paper submission to IEEE Cluster.
This is the final deadline extension.

For more information, see


March 7, 2015 Release

IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing
September 8-11, 2015
Chicago, IL, USA


Following the successes of the series of Cluster conferences, for 2015
we solicit high-quality original papers presenting work that advances
the state-of-the-art in clusters and closely related fields. All
papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for their originality,
technical depth and correctness, potential impact, relevance to the
conference, and quality of presentation. Research papers must clearly
demonstrate research contributions and novelty, while papers reporting
experience must clearly describe lessons learned and impact, along
with the utility of the approach compared to the ones in the past.

*** Submission Guidelines ***

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format.
Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may
not exceed 10 letter-size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables
and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings.
Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without
review. Authors should make sure that their file will print on a
printer that uses letter-size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language
of the conference is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and
will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength,
significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to
the conference attendees.

Paper submissions are limited to 10 pages in 2-column IEEE format
including all figures and references. Submitted manuscripts exceeding
this limit will be returned without review. For the final camera-ready

( and

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers
not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and
further action may be taken, including (but not limited to)
notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and
sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date,
exceeding the page limit, or not appropriately structured may not be
considered. Authors may contact the conference chairs for more
information. The proceedings will be published through the IEEE
Computer Society Conference Publishing Services.

Please submit your paper via the EasyChair submission system:

*** Journal Special Issue ***
