An invitation to attend the fourth
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONFIGURABLE DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS
to be held May 4-6, 1998, in Annapolis, Maryland, USA
Sponsored by the University of Maryland
Institute for Advanced Computer Studies
You are cordially invited to attend CDS 98, the premier technical
forum for researchers and practitioners alike to study on-line system
configuration, at levels of abstraction ranging from application-level
programming tools and management techniques, to network communication
protocols and operating system services. The technical program
assembled here is the latest in a series of meetings to foster
progress in this burgeoning area of study, as begun at Imperial
College in London, 1991; continued at the second meeting hosted by
Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh, 1994; and again at the
third meeting, held in Annapolis in 1996. This fourth meeting
broadens the scope of study to include configurable parallel systems,
as well as new application domains such as real-time, multimedia, and
high performance computing.
And new this year ... CDS will GO BEYOND THE CUTTING EDGE! Okay, a
little dramatic, but we are scheduling time for short (hard 5 min)
presentations of work in progress, outrageous opinions, queries for
help on technical problems and anything else members of our community
feel ought to be brought to group. We want to continue our tradition
of community building in this area, and so are making time available
for this purpose late in the day on tuesday. There will be time for
discussion and follow up on topics as needed, and supplemental
proceedings (compiled from up to four pages of material per speaker in
this session) will be prepared and distributed at the conference. If
you want to reserve one of these slots, please let us know by sending
a note to conference chair Jim Purtilo (email@example.com) at the
same time you register, otherwise slots will be given out at the
The slate of papers to be presented at CDS 98 appears below, and full details
of the technical program and registration can be found on the WWW at
This is a first-rate technical line-up, and May is a marvelous time of year
to visit Annapolis -- so we look forward to seeing you here!
