INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY: CODING AND COMPUTING

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society

TRACK ON MODERN WEB AND HYPERMEDIA SYSTEMS
------------------------------------------


April 28-30, 2003

The Orleans, Las Vegas, Nevada



CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES
----------------------
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
heterogeneous (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 to 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.

Computational grids are also proving to be an effective support for
distributed
knowledge discovery applications, known as Knowledge Grids. High level
Web
interfaces are also required for this kind of applications.

The main goal of the Track is to address important design and management

aspects of Modern Web Systems. Such systems should provide:

- Multimodal and multichannel access to information
- Personalization of browsing activity and content presentation
- Non-invasive user profiling and classification
- Synthesis of the stored information along different levels of details

- Web access to Grid applications
- Web based configuration, management and monitoring of grid
environments
- Web Services and Grid Services
