Wednesday Dec. 18

Workshops will be held on Wednesday, December 18, 2002. The goal of the workshops is to present ongoing work, particularily industry related work as opposed to the mature academic research presented in the main conference. The workshops broaden the contents of the four-day event by extending the topics of interest beyond that of the main conference. At the same time, they also deepen the conference theme by focusing on specific topics and bringing together a critical mass of researchers in select areas.

The following workshops are colocated with HiPC 2002.

9 :0 0 a m - 6 :0 0 p m
Workshop I

Workshop on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
Discovery of biomolecular sequences and their relation to the functioning of organisms have created a number of challenging problems for computer scientists, and led to the emerging interdisciplinary field of bioinformatics and computational biology. The field holds immense potential for aiding in future discoveries such as the design of proteins for efficient administering of drugs and personalized medicine.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss recent research and developments in bioinformatics and computational biology. The workshop will include contributed papers and invited talks.

9 :0 0 a m - 6 :0 0 p m
Workshop II

Workshop on Soft Computing
Soft computing is a collection of techniques, whose goal is to exploit tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. The Soft Computing term has been coined to include topics from Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms. This field of Soft Computing is seeing a flurry of activity with a plethora of successful applications.

Workshop III

Trusted Internet Workshop
In recent years, there has been a tremendous push from business and user communities for next generation applications demanding Quality of Service (QoS), reliability, and security guarantees. The goal of Trusted Internet workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their work and exchange ideas in the areas of Internet QoS, Internet Reliability, and Internet Security.
Advance Program (not yet available)

9 :0 0 a m - 1 :0 0 p m
Workshop IV

Workshop on Cutting-Edge Computing
This workshop will feature invited presentations from experts in such areas as Quantum Computing, Supercomputing/Deep Computing, Datamining of Scientific Data, etc. The goal is to bring to the attention of researchers and practitioners, recent R&D advances in computing technologies that are expected to dominate the future of computing.
Advance Program

2 :0 0 p m - 6 :0 0 p m
Workshop V

Workshop on Storage Area Networks
In conventional computing systems, servers and storage devices inhabit the same box and communicate through a local bus. In Storage Area Networks (SAN) servers and storage deices can be geographically separate and the interconnection is through a high-speed network. SANs offer several advantages such as server-free backups, ease of management, resource sharing, etc. The goal of the workshop is to bring beginners, practitioners, and researchers together and to provide a glimpse of research, implementation, and deployment issues.
