Dear colleagues,
official HICSS-29 Deadline has nearly arrived.

Everybody suggesting a submission to the Software-Minitrack


Major Topics:
                -- semantics of persistent objects
                -- efficient and save type-handling
                -- object addressing schemes
                -- granularity of distribution, sharing and persistence
                -- configurability of object stores
                -- integration of parallel I/O
                -- impact of new hardware development
                -- distributed persistent applications.

should *immediately* send an abstract of the proposed paper
(preferable postscript) by email to
                Joerg Nolte,

Other submissions not directly covered by the abovementioned topics,
but concentrating on persistence in distributed/parallel systems are
welcome too.

Further details are given in the CFP below.

     Call For Papers and Referees
  High Performance Distributed Systems: Design, Implementation, and Applications
for the
Software Technology Track
of the
          29th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, HICSS-29
Maui, Hawaii - January 3-6, 1996
This year, the Software Technology Track of HICSS-29 will focus on a broad
selection of topics in the area of High Performance Distributed Systems:
Design, Implementation, and Applications. This particular solicitation for
the Software Track will provide a forum to discuss new advances in theory,
design, implementation, use, application, and performance evaluation of high
performance distributed systems. We invite papers that may be theoretical,
conceptual, tutorial, or descriptive in nature. Those papers selected for
presentation will appear in the Conference Proceedings. HICSS-29 is sponsored
by the University of Hawaii.
The Conference Proceedings are published by the IEEE Computer Society. A
collection of the accepted papers will be considered for inclusion in a
separately bound volume to be determined (publisher and exact dates of
publication) at a later time.

1995 Deadlines
o A 300-word abstract by March 15
o Feedback to author on abstract by April 3
o Eight copies of the manuscript by June 1
o Notification of accepted papers by August 31
o Camera-ready copies of accepted manuscripts are due by October 2
