IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2014

14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing

May 26-29, 2014 -- Chicago, IL, USA


Chicago itself, and the neighboring Illinois-Indiana-Wisconsin region is home to major research universities, laboratories, and companies active in grid and cloud computing. Supercomputer centers at Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are scheduled to deploy 10+ Petaflop/sec systems by 2012. Chicago is arguably the world’s most connected city, housing the StarLight international network connection point. We will work aggressively to leverage these connections to ensure strong local participation in the conference.

Situated on the Chicago River near Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the Hyatt Regency Chicago (151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois USA 60601) is surrounded by downtown Chicago’s premier landmarks and attractions. The hotel is near world-class shopping, entertainment and commerce centers. The hotel is also an easy walk or cab ride to the city’s best theater, museums, and cuisine as well as Grant and Millennium Parks, Lake Michigan beaches, Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue.

The Hyatt Regency Chicago can accommodate comfortable meeting room space in a classroom style set-up for up to 300 delegates (with sufficient space for expansion) as well as additional space for workshops, poster session and tutorials.

The hotel is 12 miles from Chicago Midway International Airport and 18 miles from Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Shuttle service to and from both airports vary from $30-$50 depending on time of arrival.
