In the interest of stimulating contributions pertaining to the Access Grid,
please take a look and consider contributing....

(btw - there's plenty of beer - and single-malt - in Scotland)


>HPDC-11: The International Symposium on Grid Computing
>July 24 - 26, 2002
>in conjunction with
>Global Grid Forum (GGF)-5
>July 22 - 24, 2002
>The Conference:
>The HPDC symposium series has emerged as a leading technical conference in 
>the growing and important field of Grid computing. This, the 11th meeting 
>in the series, will be held for the first time outside the U.S., and for 
>the first time in conjunction with the Global Grid Forum, the international 
>body formed in 1998 to promote communication, best practices, and standards 
>in Grid computing. HPDC-11/GGF-5 will together provide a global meeting 
>place for those interested in Grid computing technologies and applications. 
>A joint program of tutorials and keynote talks will highlight major themes 
>and recent developments in the field.
>The Theme:
>The HPDC-11 conference (formally, the 11th IEEE International Symposium on 
>High-Performance Distributed Computing) will be a forum for presenting the 
>latest research findings on the design and use of highly networked systems 
>for computing, collaboration, data analysis, and other innovative tasks. 
>Submissions are encouraged on all aspects of Grid computing, including 
>hardware technologies, middleware, network services, and tools and 
>languages that support application development. Case studies describing 
>novel applications are also of interest. All papers will be rigorously 
>reviewed by a distinguished international review committee.
>Topics of Interest (include, but are not limited to):
>-Software environments and language support for Grid computing
>-Applications and case studies of Grid computing
>-Parallel and distributed algorithms to solve computationally and 
>data-intensive problems in networked environments
>-Multimedia, teleimmersive, and collaborative applications
>-Data Grids
>-High performance I/O and file systems
>-Security, configuration, policy, and management issues
>-Fault tolerance
>-Architectural support for high-speed communications or interconnection 
>-Efficient communication interfaces for distributed computing
>-Terabit network architectures.
>Paper Submissions:
>Authors are requested to submit extended abstracts of at most 3000 words, 
>not including figures or references. Abstracts should be written so as to 
>be self contained and to provide the technical substance required for the 
>program committee to evaluate the paper's contribution. Excessively long 
>abstracts will be rejected outright. Papers submitted to or published in 
>another reference or journal are ineligible for this conference.
>Abstracts must be submitted by February 22, 2002 (note: deadline has been 
>extended from previous call). Electronic submission is preferred; see 
>http://www.extreme.indiana.edu/~gannon/hpdc/hpdc11.html for details. 
>Authors will be notified by April 10, 2002, and final camera-ready copies 
>are due by May 8, 2002.
>Tutorial Submissions:
>Tutorial proposals should be submitted to the Tutorials Chair by March 4, 
>2002: Rich Wolski, rich at cs.ucsb.edu.
>Exhibits and Technical Demonstrations:
>Proposals for exhibits and technical demonstrations should be submitted to 
>Randy Bramley, bramley at indiana.edu, by May 1, 2002. Proposals should 
>include a 2-4 page definition and description of each exhibit / demonstration.
>About Edinburgh:
>See http://www.eicc.co.uk/edinburgh/ for information about the Edinburgh 
>International Convention Center.
>A unique combination of heritage, colour and culture, this is a city of 
>breathtaking beauty. The quaint corners and alleyways of the Old Town, the 
>Georgian splendor of Charlotte Square, the dominating presence of the 
>castle: all different, all unforgettable, all essentially Edinburgh. 
>Edinburgh is once again home to Scotland's parliament and excitement is in 
>the air. Edinburgh is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with mountains, 
>glens, lochs and wild places only a short journey away. There are more 
>distilleries and castles than you can possibly visit, and more single malts 
>than you can possibly drink. Archaeological sites date back about 4000 years.
