The objective of this seminar is to discuss the scheduling problems which occur when using parallel and distributed computer (and manufacturing) systems, especially in emerging research areas such as heterogeneous systems, cluster computing, computational models, multi-objective analysis and optimization, scheduling under uncertainties, on-line scheduling, etc.. The contributions should cover the state of the art in any aspect of the subject, which has recently found increasing interest in many applications such as parallel and distributed processing.
Talks will be 30 minutes long, including questions. During the seminar, the participants will exchange new ideas and results and discuss new developments in the area of scheduling with communications. If enough people are interested, we will propose to the participants to submit their contributions to a special issue of a high-quality international journal (last issues were published in EJOR and J. on Scheduling).

The workshop will take place in a very nice resort in the south of France, close to Cassis, in the "Calanques" (Chateau du CIRM in Luminy-Marseille).
All participants who are on the participants list have been invited, and are guaranteed to have a room at the CIRM center. All administrative details (housing, payment, special meals, ...) will be handled later directly by the CIRM. All participants will receive a confirmation mail by the end of April for fixing all last minute details (arriving, departure, ...). However, please note that there will not be enough single rooms for everyone. Please tell us in advance your wishes (shared room with whom, double bedroom for accompanied people) and we will do our best. All details on the cost are available on the CIRM website.
Attendance to the whole week is warmly encouraged. However, if you will not be able to attend the whole conference, please inform us of your arrival and departure dates, so that we schedule your talk accordingly.
