Fourth Annual Workshop on Advanced Collaborative Environments

This workshop will address research, technological, and social issues of 
developing persistent collaboration infrastructure to address the needs of 
emerging communities. Examples of such communities include the following:

" Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
" Nanoscience and Molecular Technology
" Wide Area Environmental Sensing
" Biomedical Imaging and Simulation
" Education, Humanities and Technology
" Unique One-of-a-Kind Facilities

The goal of the workshop is to provide an open technical forum to promote 
the discussion of high-end, high-value solutions to the problem of 
supporting distributed collaboration. Baseline 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 workshop intends to 
look at future-generation systems. The following are examples of future 
infrastructure predictions likely to affect collaboration systems:

" Network bandwidth -gigabits/s to terabits/s
" Display -desktop monitors to room-oriented systems
" Computing -gigaflops to teraflops PCs
" Mobile devices -PDAs to personal information accessories
" Storage -gigabytes to personal terabytes
" Ubiquitous grid software environments

Overall registration for the workshop will be limited to 75 participants.
