The popular success of the Internet is due in large part to the World Wide Web. The Web was initially designed as a system for the storage and retrieval of distributed data.
We are witnessing an evolution of the services supported by the Global Network. More and more, applications run over the net will consist in complex data search and retrieval (electronic commerce...), and high performance computing tasks, for the Laboratory user (physics, biology, ...), the Industrial user (aeronautics, pharmaceutics, ...) as well as for the end user (weather services, stock market, ... ).
For the middleware and application developers, Internet is now more and more seen as a programming environment for data mining, data processing, cooperative work etc. This has lead to "Internet Computing", a fast growing scientific area, encompassing distributed computing and networking.
Together with the associated concepts of Grids and Peer-to-Peer exchanges, Internet Computing is the source of several scientific and technological challenges. Among those: the efficient and fair sharing of the globalized resources, and the total yet transparent security of exchanges of data.
The ASIAN 2002 conference will seek contributions of theoretical computer science to two major themes:
|Paper submission deadline:||NEW DEADLINE: July 28, 2002|
|Acceptance notification:||August 31, 2002|
|Final paper due:||September 15, 2002|
The series of annual Asian Computing Science Conferences (ASIAN) was initiated in 1995 by AIT, INRIA and UNU/IIST to provide a forum for researchers in computer science from the Asian region and to promote interaction with researchers from other regions. The first six conferences have been held, respectively, in Bangkok, Singapore, Katmandu, Manila, Phuket and Penang. In addition to support from the host countries, they have also been sponsored by INRIA, France, UNU/IIST, Macau and NUS, Singapore. The proceedings have been published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer-Verlag. Past ASIAN conferences have included invited talks from Z. Manna (keynote speaker, 95), Ph. Flajolet, G. Berry, D. Harel (96), J.-C. Bolot, G. Smolka, D. Tygar, M. Rabin (97), N. Ayache, R. Bryant, M.N. Velev, J. Wing (98), S. Hayashi, C. Kirchner, A. Pnueli (99), N. Halbwachs, K. Palem, J. Vuillemin (00), R. Kotagiri, A. Jean-Marie.
