                      *     CALL FOR PAPERS     *

                                 ITCC 2004
IEEE International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing
                      April 5-7, 2004, Las Vegas, Nevada

                                  Track on
                        Modern Web and Grid Systems
             ( )

Web-based systems are becoming increasingly popular as tools for user-driven
access to information and services.
During the last years, Web-based systems are increasingly used to access
Multimedia Systems, Information Systems,
Legacy Applications and, more recently, High-Performance Computational
Environments (Problem Solving Environments).

In Web-based Multimedia Systems and Information Systems, the linking mechanism
of hypermedia offers users
a large amount of navigational freedom so that it becomes necessary to guide
users during navigation.
Moreover, the classes of users to be dealt with are becoming increasingly
(novices, experts, specialists, technicians, and so on) due to the worldwide
deployment of applications.
Other important sources of heterogeneity are: the kind of user terminal, the
available network bandwidth,
the desired "resolution" to observe contents, etc. Therefore, such systems
should be able to adapt themselves
to different user requirements (and wishes) and should manage, in an
integrated way, the sources of heterogeneity,
not only at the application level, but along all the layers of a modern Web-
based system.

In the last years, Web Based Systems are also emerging as high-level
interfaces to large-scale distributed computing platforms, called
Computational Grids, that provide dependable, consistent, and pervasive access
high-end computational resources. Such systems, known as Grid Portals, are
defined to be Web-based
application servers enhanced with the necessary software to communicate to
grid services and resources.
Grid Portals provide application scientists a customized view of software and
hardware resources from a Web browser.

In Grid Portals, the main issues are the integration between web and grid
technologies, allowing the transparent
access to Problem Solving Environments through web interfaces. Moreover,
specialized Grid Portals,
allowing the installation, the management and the monitoring of grid
environments will represent an
interesting application area.

A main issue that will drive the development and evolution of the Grid raises
from the enormous amount of data and
information available coupled with the intelligent use of Grid resources and
Future generation Grids will include knowledge discovery and knowledge
management functionalities,
for user's needs  and system management, and will employ semantic modeling of
user's tasks, available services,
and data sources to support high level services and dynamic services finding
and composition.

The main goal of the Track is is to discuss some of the current and future
technologies that will impact on architectures, computational models and
applications of Modern Web and Grid Systems,
with a particular emphasis on the use of semantics and knowledge discovery
techniques and services
addressing main design and management aspects.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Current and Future Grid Systems
* Data Grids and Knowledge Grids
* Semantic Web and Semantic Grids
* Grid Services implementation and Applications
* Ontologies and Grids
* Ubiquitous Computing and Pervasive Grids
* Peer-to-Peer Computing and Grids
* Grid-based Problem Solving Environments
* Grid portals
* Grid portals for configuration, management and monitoring
* Data and resource management on Grids
* Peer To Peer technologies for resource discovery on Grids
* Security mechanisms on Grids

Adaptive Web Systems
* Models for multi-format hypermedia documents
* Multi-channel access to web sites
* Web Usage Mining
* User classification and profiling
* Adaptive Search Engines

Document Compression and synthesis
* Compression/synthesis of hypermedia documents and XML
* Text summarization to support adaptive web systems
* Storing, browsing, searching and querying of compressed/synthesized data
* Applications of compression/synthesis for Adaptive Web Systems and Pervasive
* Management of XML and semi-structured data
* Schema extraction and restructuring of XML and semi-structured data

        October 17, 2003:       Full Paper Due
        November 14, 2003:      Author Notification
        December 19, 2003:      Camera-Ready Copy

Papers should be original and contain contributions of theoretical or
experimental nature.
Moreover, papers concerning tools and architectures for industrial
applications will also be considered.

Interested authors should send their paper (5 pages paper, IEEE Proceedings
format), including keywords,
before October 17, 2003 , to the Track Chair. Electronic submission
(PostScript or PDF) is strongly encouraged.

Note: The Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
A special issue of an international journal is being planned consisting of
selected papers from this conference.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for
the journal.
