7th IEEE Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing July 29-31, 1998, Chicago, Ill.)
The Seventh International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing is a forum for presenting the latest research findings on the use of networked systems for high-performance computing. Submissions are encouraged on all aspects of high performance distributed computing, including hardware technologies, the middleware that ties distributed resources together into ``computational grids," and tools and languages that support application development.
