Second Workshop on Advanced Collaborative Environments

To be held at the 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and 
the Grid (CCGrid 2002) in Berlin, 21-24 May 2002


The WACE series addresses research, technological and social issues of 
developing persistent collaboration infrastructure to address the needs of 
emerging scientific communities. Examples of emerging scientific 
communities include:

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
Nanoscience and Molecular Technology
Wide Area Environmental Sensing
Biomedical Imaging and Simulation

The goal of the workshops is to provide an open technical forum to promote 
the discussion of high-end high-value solutions to the problem of 
supporting distributed scientific collaboration. Base line assumptions 
about the evolution of future computing technologies (e.g. networking, 
computing, storage, and displays) useful for collaboration environments 
should be taken into account in developing position papers. The workshops 
intend to look at future generation systems and to explore new research 
directions in advanced collaborative environments.

Abstracts (approx. 500-word) for position statements are being sought for 
this workshop. Abstracts should be sent via email and may be either in 
plain-text or PDF. Final versions of position statements should be no more 
than 2 pages in length.

Please email abstracts to: wace at mcs.anl.gov


Deadlines for abstract submission:
Dec 1, 2001

Notification of acceptance:
Jan 30, 2002

Final version of position statement due:
Feb 28, 2002
