HAPCW 2006 will be held on October 17, 2006 in conjunction with the 2006 Los Alamos Computer Science Institute Symposium 2006 (LACSI2006), at the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. High Availability (HA) Computing has long been played a critical role in industry mission critical applications. On the other hand, High Performance Computing (HPC) has equally been a significant enabler to the R&D community for their scientific discoveries. Serviceability aims toward effective means by which corrective and preventive maintenance can be performed on a system. Higher serviceability improves availability and helps retaining quality, performance and continuity of services at expected levels. Together, the combination of HA, Serviceability, and HPC will clearly lead to even more benefits to critical shared major HEC resource environments.

HAPCW2006 will provide an important venue for discussing state-of-art and on-going research and development in HAPC. In addition to the presentation of reviewed papers, the workshop will include a panel discussion of relevant topics.

Submission Guidelines:
Original, unpublished work is required. Extended abstracts are not to exceed 2 pages (two columns, single space, 10 point font), including tables and illustrations. Accepted contributions will be published in the proceedings website and CD which will be available at the workshop. The final manuscript shall be a maximum of 6 IEEE style pages in Camera-Ready. Please send all extended abstracts by email, in Postscript or PDF format to Dr. Ben He,
