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, Springer-Verlag.

The scope of the conferences has been a broad coverage of Computer Science, but with a focus on a few chosen specific themes concerning the formal aspects of algorithms, programming, concurrency and parallelism, networking and security.

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.


The ASIAN 2002 conference will seek contributions of theoretical computer science to two major themes: Internet computing and modeling, and Grid, peer-to-peer and cluster computing.

The corresponding topics include:

Theme 1: Internet Computing and Modeling

  • Design and analysis of network and Internet protocols
  • Cryptographic algorithms and protocols
  • User authentication and data/transaction safety
  • Models and algorithms for the Web structure and Web evolution
  • Contents distribution and management: web servers, caching, multimedia
  • Internet telephony and video / streaming
  • Quality of service and Performance evaluation of the Internet
  • Traffic models & statistics, measurements and characterization
Theme 2: Grid, peer-to-peer and cluster computing
  • Software architectures for computing and data resource integration
  • Algorithms (and software) for workload and data distribution
  • Distributed scheduling
  • Load balancing
  • Distributed operating systems
  • Mobile code and Mobile computations
  • Code certification
  • Data distribution/mirroring algorithms, parallel data bases
  • Performance monitoring and optimization
  • Network reliability and failure management
  • User registration and accounting
  • Grid computing environments: frameworks, portals, PSE's, etc.
