Research Latin, America at Santiago, Chile Abdur Chowdhury - Summize, Inc., USA Cheng-Zhong Xu - Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA As data and knowledge volume keep increasing while global means for information dissemination continue to diversify, new methods, modeling paradigms, and structures are needed to support efficiently the mounting scalability requirements. In the last few years we have seen the proliferation of the use of heterogeneous distributed systems, ranging from simple Networks of Workstations, to highly complex Grid Computing environments. Such computational paradigms have been preferred due to their reduced costs and inherent scalability, but their efficient usage pose many challenges in terms of information access, storage and retrieval as well as in terms of algorithms for efficiently manage, transfer, and analyze huge volume of data and knowledge. Grid computing, P2P technology, data and knowledge bases, distributed information retrieval technology, and networking technology should all converge to address the scalability concern. Furthermore, with the advent of emerging computing architectures - e.g. SMTs, GPUs, Multicores, etc. - the importance of designing techniques explicitly targeting these systems, is becoming more and more important. The Third International Conference on Scalable Information Systems will focus on a wide array of scalability issues and investigate new approaches to tackle problems arising from the ever-growing size and complexity of information of all kinds. The conference invites original technical papers, short papers and posters that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to: * Scalable Parallel and Distributed Information Retrieval * Scalable Grid Information Systems * Scalable Peer-to-Peer Systems * Scalable Mobile Systems * Scalable Web Services * Scalable Sensor Networks and Systems * Scalable Systems and Conceptual Modeling * Scalable Multimedia Information Systems * Scalability Issues on Emerging Computing Architectures (SMTs, GPUs, Multicores) * Scalable Data Mining * Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems * Middleware Technology for Scalable Computing * Information Security * Architectures for Scalability * Networking for Scalable Information Systems * Evaluation Metrics for Scalability * Enterprise Information Systems and Applications * Very Large Databases * Compression Techniques for Scalability * Optimizing Compiling Techniques for Scalable Parallel Systems IMPORTANT DATES Extended Full Papers due: April 10, 2008 Notification of Acceptance: April 30, 2008 Camera-ready Manuscripts due: May 10, 2008 Conference Dates: June 4-6, 2008 KEYNOTE TALKS speaker: Ricardo Baeza-Yates, VP of Research for Europe and Latin America, leading the Yahoo! Research labs at Barcelona, Spain and Santiago, Chile. title : Distributed Web Retrieval speaker: Antony Rowstron, senior researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK currently co-leads their systems and networking research group. title : Peer-to-peer meets wireless: Opportunities and challenges speaker: Giorgio Ventre, Professor of Computer Networks, Department of Computer Engineering and Systems, University of Napoli Federico II. title : (to be announced) SATELLITE WORKSHOPS ManyMORE - Emerging MANY-core architectures in data Mining and infOrmation REtrieval The goal of this half-day workshop is to offer a venue for researchers to explore the challenge of developing data mining and information retrieval algorithms for emerging commodity parallel hardware. http://manymore08.isti.cnr.it/ 1P2P4mm P2P Architectures for MultiMedia retrieval The goal of the workshop is to provide input to a comprehensive gap analysis and recommendations for future action on the part of the public funding agencies, most notably the European Commission. http://ist-chorus.org/eventitem.asp?id=82 _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
