Approximately 350 participants attended the meeting.

Bangalore, a bustling metropolis, is the fifth largest city in India and the capital of the state of Karnataka. It is the main center of the Information Technology industry in India; almost every Indian and multi- national IT company has a presence here. Bangalore is home to the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), a premier research institute, and many other aerospace and high technology industries including the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing. Karnataka is home of many ancient Indian architectural marvels, wildlife sanctuaries, rain forests (the Western Ghats), pristine beaches, and rich and hoary cultural traditions.

HiPC 2002 will emphasize the design and analysis of high performance computing and networking systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. In addition to technical sessions of contributed paper presentations, the conference will offer invited presentations, a poster/presentation session, tutorials, and vendor presentations. HPC Asia 2002 will also be held in Bangalore during December 16-19, 2002, and will be co-located with HiPC 2002. This will offer additional opportunities for participants from one meeting to attend the other at a nominal cost.

HPC Asia 2002 will be organized by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) and the Advanced Computing and Communications Society (ACS). The exhibits will be open to HiPC 2002 participants at no extra cost. HPC Asia 2002 details can be retrieved on the web at http://www.cdacindia.com/hpcasia2002
