Dear TCPP member,

I want to highlight two recently released call for papers for TCPP-sponsored
conferences.  First CFP is for IPDPS-09, our flagship conference.  This will
be held in Rome next year, and its submission deadline is Oct 3rd.   Second
CFP is for PerCom-09, to be held in Dallas, with a submission deadline of
Sept. 22nd.

In this issue, there is new section on "Call for Student Papers and Award
Applications" which lists student research symposiums and fellowship, and
award opportunities.

 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*.

Regards,

Sushil K. Prasad
TCPP Chair
