>May 2002.
>We take this opportunity to invite you to submit scientific papers to this
>Please forgive us if you receive several copies of this message.
>Feel free to forward this message to your colleagues.
>Best Regards.

>               On Large Scale  Distributed Systems"
>             (http: http://www.lri.fr/~fci/GP2PC.htm)
>          organized at the IEEE International Symposium
>             on Cluster Computing and the Grid 2002
>                          CCGRID 2002
>In cooperation with the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)
>The wide spread of the World Wide Web along with the availability
>of increasingly powerful off-the-shelf hardware give rise to a new
>infrastructure for distributed computing. Besides traditional grid
>computing systems, it is now possible to run computations on a large
>number workstations, personal computers and servers using a large scale
>and loosely coupled system.
>This type of distributed computing, also referred to as Global
>Computing, is currently used for a large variety of physic, mathematics
>and biology applications mostly following the Master/slave paradigm.
>Peer-to-Peer interaction models give the opportunity to enlarge the number
>of user
>and applications of Global Computing by allowing any resource to send
>job or/and data requests, provide data or/and computation services and
>participate to maintain the infrastructure itself.
>Because of their size and the high volatility of their resources, Global
>Computing and Global Peer-to-Peer Computing platforms provide the
>opportunity for researchers to revisit distributed computing major fields:
>protocols, infrastructures, security, certification, fault tolerance,
>scheduling, performance, etc.
>Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished work describing
>current research in the area of Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing
>including design and  analysis of computational infrastructures as well as
>applications in science, technology, and commerce.
>Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
>*  Global Computing and Peer-to-Peer computing platforms,
>*  Autonomous, self organizing and/or mobile distributed systems,
>*  Middleware, programming models, environments and toolkits,
>*  Protocols for resource management/discovery/reservation/scheduling,
>*  Economic considerations of resource usage (protocols, accounting),
>*  Storage in Global Computing Infrastructures (strategies, protocols)
>*  Performance monitoring, benchmarking, evaluation and modeling of
>    Global Computing and Peer-to-Peer systems and/or components thereof,
>*  Security, management and monitoring of resources,
>*  Result certification (detection/tolerance of wrong/corrupted results),
>*  Parallel computing on large scale distributed systems,
>*  Compute or I/O driven applications  (scientific, engineering,
>*  Global and Peer-to-Peer computing applications (programmed from
>    ported from sequential, or parallel version, adaptations to fit a
>    computing environment)
>Authors are encouraged to:
>Submit a full paper (max: 6 pages in length, formatted to the IEEE format)
>Submit a research statement (max: 2 pages in length, formatted to the IEEE
>Use a minimum of 10pt font, and printable on A4 paper. IEEE guidelines can
>be found here. Please email your papers to fci at lri.fr or
>lalis at ics.forth.gr which is the preferred method for submission.
>Full papers (category (a)) will be reviewed by the program committee for
>relevance, clarity and the novelty of results. If accepted, full papers
>will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE Computer Society.
>Authors may purchase two additional pages.
>Short papers (category (b)) will be published in a separate section. This
>is to encourage work that is not yet advanced enough for a full paper.
>We also encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing
>work, and application examples, which demonstrate how Global and
>Peer-to-Peer Computing technology could be effectively deployed. We also
>welcome practical work which applies Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing
>technology in novel and interesting ways.
>Papers due: November 24, 2001

>Final version of papers due: February 15, 2002
