IOPADS '97, the Fifth Workshop on I/O in Parallel and Distributed
Systems will be held on Monday, November 17, 1997, at the Wyndham
Hotel, San Jose, CA, USA. It will be co-located with SC97: High
Performance Networking and Computing (the 1997 entry in the former
Supercomputing 'XY series).

The IOPADS '97 program consists of a keynote talk by Dr. James Gray,
Senior Researcher, Microsoft Research, and ten carefully reviewed and
shepherded papers. The detailed program and registration form are
attached below and are also available on the IOPADS '97 web page at

Also of potential interest to IOPADS '97 attendees is a full-day
tutorial, "High Performance I/O Systems: Architectures, Software and
Applications" by Alok Choudhary (Northwestern University) and Rajesh
Bordawekar (California Institute of Technology), offered as part of
the SC97 tutorial program on Sunday, November 16, 1997. Registration
for this tutorial is separate from the IOPADS '97 registration; see
the SC97 web page,, for information on
