            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'06) will be convened as part of CCGrid 2006 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GAN 2006 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. GAN 2006 also encourages the submission of outstanding "work-in-progress" papers. Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
