SPECIAL SESSION IV
Collaborative Networking Infrastructure
A Special Session on collaborative networking
infrastructure is being organized under the 2004 Collaborative Technologies
Symposium (CTS'04) in conjunction with the 2004 Western Simulation MultiConference to be held in
This special session is planned to bring together people from industry, government and academia who are working to innovate, develop and use networking infrastructure for the purpose of collaborative work in various fields of knowledge. Some of the recent examples of collaborative work via networking include SPARC that researchers in upper atmospheric and space physics from around the world are able to use. SPARC provides the users with a set of online collaboration tools and workspaces that link together scientific instruments, data, and models.
This special session looks at the hardware and software issues that are involved in providing a reliable, robust and ubiquitous networking infrastructure that can be used to build collaborative tools and services and the state of the art as well as experimental results and posters about ongoing work in this direction.
Topics include, but not limited to:
* Protocols for Collaborative Networking
* High Speed Networking
* Design, Implementation and Management of Collaborative Websites
* Tools and Techniques for Web based Collaborative Multimedia Communications
* Software Development for Data Visualization from Distributed Data Centers
* Technical Issues in Building Community Networks
* Wireless and
