Scheduling and load balancing techniques are crucial issues in the quest for performance in parallel and distributed applications. Such techniques can be provided either at the application level or at the system level, and both scenarios are of interest for this workshop.
A special emphasis will be put on the characteristics of scheduling and load-balancing algorithms for new parallel and distributed systems like clusters, grid and global computing.
Both theoretical and practical aspects will be covered.
