Call for papers

GRIDNETS 2010
4th International ICST Conference on Networks for Grid Applications

September 13 - 15, 2010 - Chicago, IL, USA
http://www.gridnets.org/

Sponsored by ICST
Technically co-sponsored by Create-Net

GridNets provides a focused and highly interactive forum where researchers
and technologists have the opportunity to present and discuss leading
research, developments, and future directions in the Grid networking area.
The goal of this event is to serve as both the premier conference
presenting best Grid Networking research and a forum where new concepts
can be introduced and explored.

Grid developers and practitioners are increasingly realizing the
importance of efficient network support. Entire classes of applications
would greatly benefit by a network-aware grid middleware, able to
effectively manage the network resource in terms of scheduling, access and
use. Conversely, the peculiar requirements of grid applications provide
stimulating drivers for new challenging research towards the development
of grid-aware networks.

Cooperation between grid middleware and network infrastructure driven by a
common control plane is a key factor to effectively empower the global
grid platform for the execution of network-intensive applications,
requiring massive data transfers, very fast and low-latency connections,
and stable and guaranteed transmission rates. Large e-science projects, as
well as industrial and engineering applications for data analysis, image
processing, multimedia, or visualisation just to name a few are awaiting
an efficient grid network support. They would be boosted by a global grid
platform enabling end-to-end dynamic bandwidth allocation, broadband and
low-latency access, interdomain access control, and other network
performance monitoring capabilities.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in the ICST Lecture
Notes (LNICST) series. The proceedings will be published by Springer and
will be available both as paper-based copies and via Springerlink,
Springer's digital library.

Scope:

-Network architectures and technologies for grids;
-Integration of advanced optical networking technologies into the grid
environment;
-The network as a first class grid resource: network resource information
publication, brokering and co-scheduling with other resources;
-Interaction of the network with distributed data management systems;
-Network monitoring, traffic characterisation and performance analysis;
-Inter-layer interactions: optical layer with higher layer protocols,
integration among layers;
-Experience with pre-production optical network infrastructures and
exchange points;
-Peer-to-peer network enhancements applied to the grid;
-Network support for wireless and ad hoc grids;
-Data replication and multicasting strategies and novel data transport
protocols;
-Cluster and high performance networks;
-Networks for Data Centers;
-Networks & Cloud computing issues;
-Fault-tolerance, self healing networks;
-Security and scalability issues when connecting a large number of sites
within a virtual organization VPN;
-Cloud networking and Grid networking intersection;
-Grid networking and petascale computing;
-Grid networking for e-Science;
-Terabit Grid networking;
-Digital media and Grid networks;
-Energy awareness and power consumption in grids;
-Virtual networks;
-Digital media networks;
-Ad hoc networks.

The organizers of GridNets encourage submissions related to the results of
future network research activities. Currently, many large scale advanced
networking research projects have been established to create new types of
experimental research environments, such as the US National Science
Foundation's Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), those
being created in Europe through the EIFFEL (Evolved Internet Future for
European Leadership) and FIREworks (Future Internet Research and
Experimentation - Strategy Works) initiatives, in Japan through the New
Generation Internet program, and in many other countries. In addition,
various related initiatives, such as the NSF's Future Internet Design
(FIND), have been established to support research using advanced network
research testbeds. GridNets has been designs as a forum in which the
results of such activities can be presented and discussed.
