Dear Colleagues,
Please find bellow the call for paper of the 
"International Workshop on Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing" which will take 
place along with the CCGRID 2002 conference in Berlin, Germany, 21-24 May 2002. 
We take this opportunity to invite you to submit scientific papers to this 
Please excuse use if you receive several copies of this message.
Feel free to forward this message to your colleagues.
Best Regards.

                   International Workshop on 
               Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing
               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Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished work describing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, business), 
*  Global and Peer-to-Peer computing applications (programmed from scratch,
   ported from sequential, or parallel version, adaptations to fit a global 
   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
