16th Annual ACM 
International Conference 

June 22-26, 2002

New York City

Sponsored by ACM/SIGARCH



Come to New York City for ICS'02!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 16th ACM International Conference on Supercomputing, I am pleased to announce its advance program. ICS is the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in high-performance computing systems. This year, we have an excellent technical program consisting of 31 papers selected from 144 submissions, three outstanding keynote speakers (Tetsuya Sato, Director-General, Earth Simulator Center, Japan; Alfred Z. Spector, Vice President, Services and Software, IBM Research; David Kuck, Intel Fellow, Director, KAI Software Lab), three panel discussions and five tutorials on exciting current topics. ICS'02 is accompanied by 3 workshops: Self-Healing, Adaptive and Self-managed Systems; Caching, Coherence, and Consistency; Performance Optimization via High-Level Languages and Libraries.

I would especially encourage students to submit papers to the ICS'02 workshops (still accepting submissions) and to attend ICS'02. There will be various awards for student presentations (courtesy of ACM), as well as student travel grants (courtesy of Intel, IBM and SIGARCH). We also have arranged for low-cost housing for students at Columbia University. ICS'02 offers an opportunity to meet experts in the field, both from the academia and the industry.

The ICS'02 conference will be held at Columbia University in New York City, June 22-26, 2002. New York City needs no introduction: it is a whimsical mix of architecture, art, music, and the vanguards of business -- you may decide to stay there! Columbia University is an established Ivy League school, and is one of the top educational centers in the United States. The Columbia campus houses impressive turn-of-the-century architectures, and is only minutes away from the city center by subway.

I hope you will consider attending ICS'02. I am looking forward to seeing you at New York City in June!

Dr. Kemal Ebcioglu,
ICS'02 General Chair,
IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
