Joint ACM Java Grande - ISCOPE 2002 Conference

Seattle, Washington, November 3-5, 2002

ACM Logo  Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN


JavaGrande ISCOPE


Deadline Extended to June 9th !!

For the year 2002, Java Grande and ISCOPE (International Symposium on Computing in Object-oriented Parallel Environments) have continued their partnership with a joint Conference, and a merged Call for Papers, Program Committee, and ACM Proceedings. As such, the JGI2002 conference will focus on object-orientation in a broad range of topics (including parallelism, communication, distribution, and high-performance applications and systems) and Java in the broad area of high-performance computing (including engineering and scientific applications, simulations, and data-intensive applications). This combined conference will represent one of the world's premier research forums in high-performance object-oriented computation. Preceding the OOPSLA 2002 conference, Java Grande - ISCOPE will also enable the attendees to expose themselves to a broad range of object technologies. OOPSLA 2002 is the 17th annual ACM conference on Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages and Applications. We expect JGI2002 to have a more applied orientation than OOPSLA. OOPSLA 2002 runs from November 4-8 2002.


Authors are invited to submit both high quality research and experience papers. Research papers should describe work that advances the current technology or understanding of concepts and problems. Experience papers should not merely describe how a particular system had been built or used, but rather should be of broad interest, clearly be on the conference focus, provide concrete quantitative/qualitative observations; they will be evaluated based on the new generalizable insights the paper provides. Papers which demonstrate object-oriented technology in the context of an actual application are highly-encouraged.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

  • Scientific, Financial, Real-time, and data-centric applications
  • Parallel/Distributed problem solving environments, languages, and systems
  • System performance and benchmarking
  • Compiler technologies and performance issues
  • Java numerics and Java extensions for high-performance computing
  • Java compilation and optimization for high-performance computing
  • Java development tools and environments for high-performance computing
  • High-performance run-time systems
  • Programming/Debugging/Visualization tools
  • Class libraries, frameworks, and design patterns
  • Components, reuse, and portability
  • Software Engineering issues
  • Programming Models, Theoretical foundations, formal methods
  • Multi-agent systems
  • Reflection and Metaprogramming
  • High-performance databases and data mining
  • Linkage of XML to scientific and high performance computing environments
  • Global computing, Internet computing and the Grid
  • Linkage of Java and object technologies with Computational Grids
  • Web services for high performance and scientific computing environments
  • High performance component technologies
  • Heterogeneous computing environments
  • Standards for object interoperability
  • Java use for scientific and engineering applications
  • Java frameworks and libraries for high-performance computing
  • Implementation techniques for Java on high-performance systems
  • Java performance and benchmarking
  • Specific related technologies -- such as C# .NET Jini -- and their applications

The program committee will evaluate each contributed research and experience paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, originality, and correctness. For all types of papers, references and comparisons to existing work will be significant criteria in evaluating the contribution. The program committee will also select the best conference paper and the best student paper. A student paper must have a student as the lead author but more senior co-authors are allowed. The awards will be announced at the end of the conference.

ACM Paper Templates


It is strongly recommended to use LaTeX and to follow the ACM conference style when preparing the document. In that style file, the paper must not exceed 10 pages. When accepted, the paper will need to follow that style file. In addition, check out the Instructions for Authors of Accepted Papers for other constraints. Only Electronic submission of pdf or postscript files is acceptable. Submissions of full papers must be received by June 1, 2002. Authors will be notified by July 1, 2002

All accepted papers will be presented at the conference, and published in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign the ACM copyright form. Proceedings will be distributed at the conference and will subsequently be available from ACM. Papers published in proceedings are eligible for subsequent publication in refereed ACM journals at the discretion of the editor of the particular journal. Papers describing essentially the same work must not have been published elsewhere or be simultaneously under consideration for publication elsewhere.


Proposals are solicited for organizing full or half-day tutorials. Interested individuals should submit a proposal by June 1, 2002 to the Tutorials Chair Vladimir Getov. It should include a brief description of intended audience, lecture outline and vita(e) for lecturer(s). The tutorials will be held on November 3, 2002.
