High Performance Computing -- HiPC 2003
Message from the Steering Chair It was my pleasure to welcome attendees to the 10th International Conference on High-Performance Computing and to Hyderabad, an emerging center of IT activities in India. We are indebted to Timothy Pinkston for his superb e?orts as program chair in organizing an excellent technical program. We received a record number of submissions this year. Over the past year, I discussed the meeting details with Timothy. I am grateful to him for his thoughtful inputs. Many volunteers helped to organize the meeting. In addition, I was glad to welcome Rajesh Gupta as Keynote Chair, Atul Negi as Student Scholarships Chair, and Sushil Prasad as Proceedings Chair. I look forward to their cont- butions for the continued success of the meeting series. Sushil Prasad did an excellent job in bringing out these proceedings. Kamal Karlapalem assisted us with local arrangements at IIIT, Hyderabad. Dheeraj Sanghi took on the r- ponsibility of focussed publicity for the meeting within India. Vijay Keshav of Intel India, though not listed as a volunteer, provided me with many pointers for bringing the India-based high-performance computing vendors to the meeting. I would like to thank M. Vidyasagar for agreeing to host the meeting in Hyderabad and for his assistance with the local arrangements. Continuing the tradition set at last year’s meeting, several workshops were organized by volunteers. These workshops were coordinated by C.P. Ravikumar.
