Dear TCPP member,

I invite you to visit our new address on the web: http://tcpp.computer.org.
We have started putting together information on TCPP on the newly-created
website, including student travel and other awards, PhD Forum, TCPP
sponsored conferences, call for papers, events, open positions, link to TCPP
membership application, newsletters, etc.   Check it out periodically, as we
gather additional resources useful to our community.  Your suggestions and
contributions are welcome.

I want to highlight three upcoming TCPP sponsored conferences: (i) DCOSS-08,
Santorini Island, Greece, June 11-14, (ii) HPDC-08, Boston, USA, June 23-27,
and (iii) ICPS 2008, Sorrento, Italy, July 6-10.   Find links and more
details on these below.

Here are the updates on TCPP related conferences followed by CFPs, etc.,
submitted in the past several weeks to tcpp-announce at cc.gatech.edu.
