Call for Papers


            The rapid rise of the grid computing concept is leading to the development of a wide range of capabilities for managing distributed applications and services. These applications and services, in addition to the grid infrastructure itself, all rely on network communication. Effectively utilizing high-speed networks, however, is not entirely trivial. Network communication will also encompass far more than simple, point-to-point data transfers. Advanced network capabilities will include quality of service, security, filtering, reliable multicast, high performance transport protocols, monitoring, performance measurements and content-based routing, to name a few. In many cases, new network services will offer applications a control plane whereby it can control network behavior in the data plane. Hence, grid applications and middleware that can be more network-aware, and even topology-aware, will be able to achieve higher performance, and responsiveness while lower network demand. Meanwhile, performance and specific requirements of Grid applications will push the evolution of network protocols.

            For these reasons, the Workshop of Grids and Advanced Networks (GAN'03) will be convened as part of CCGrid 2003 to bring together researchers in both grids and networks to present the latest work integrating these two fields. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to :

Paper Submissions

GAN 2003 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. The paper should not exceed 6 pages of text using 10 point size type on A4 paper. GAN 2003 also encourages the submission of outstanding "work-in-progress" papers. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer. Electronic submission by email is strongly encouraged. Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. Please email your papers to, which is the preferred method for submission.

Proceedings All papers selected for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will be published as a part of the CCGrid 2003 Proceedings.
