The 2008 Access Grid Retreat will take place at Simon Fraser University 
in Vancouver, Canada, May 28-30. 

The Access Grid Retreat is an annual event which brings together users, 
developers, and researchers in a show of recent activity and future 
planning related to internet collaboration.  The Retreat Program 
typically includes presentations suitable for people at all levels of 
technical understanding, from first time users to developers to 
researchers in collaborative technology and streaming media. More 
information about the current and past retreats is available at 
www.accessgrid.org/events.  For more information about the Access Grid, 
please visit www.accessgrid.org.

Speakers are encouraged to present in all areas related to collaboration 
research, including but not limited to the following:

Collaborative Environments
Distributed Applications
Streaming Media
Shared Applications
Streaming Media
Meeting Archiving
Wide-area Networking
Web Collaboration
Domain-specific and regional collaboration
Collaborative Science

Room Control

Speakers are requested to submit abstracts of no more than 1000 words, 
not including figures or references; PDF format is preferred. Speakers 
should define their interest in submitting an individual presentation 
(including title), or a panel discussion (including title and proposed 
speakers) . Abstracts should be written so as to be self-contained and 
to provide the technical substance required for the program committee to 
evaluate the presenter's contribution, and to provide sufficient detail 
for the program. Presentations including live demonstrations, for 
example introducing a new shared application or service, should include 
the hardware and network requirements necessary for the demonstration.

Abstracts must be submitted by *Friday, April 11, 2008*. Please submit 
to agr2008 at accessgrid.org <mailto:agr2008 at accessgrid.org>.

Speakers will be selected by *Friday, April 18, 2008*. Confirmations 
will be sent via email.

Information about registration and lodging for this year's retreat will 
be available shortly.
