IOPADS '97, the Fifth Workshop on I/O in Parallel and Distributed
Systems will be held on Monday, November 17, 1997, at the Wyndham
Hotel, San Jose, CA, USA. It will be co-located with SC97: High
Performance Networking and Computing (the 1997 entry in the former
Supercomputing 'XY series).

The IOPADS '97 program consists of a keynote talk by Dr. James Gray,
Senior Researcher, Microsoft Research, and ten carefully reviewed and
shepherded papers. The detailed program and registration form are
included below and are also available on the IOPADS '97 web page, .

Also of potential interest to IOPADS '97 attendees is a full-day
tutorial, "High Performance I/O Systems: Architectures, Software and
Applications" by Rajesh Bordawekar (California Institute of Technology)
and Alok Choudhary (Northwestern University), offered as part of the
SC97 tutorial program on Sunday, November 16, 1997. Registration for
this tutorial is separate from the IOPADS '97 registration; see the
SC97 web page,, for information on how
to register for this tutorial.
