Application Technology Workshop : P2P and GRID: Convergence and Challenges

Organizers: Ana Preston, David Futey, Hyun-chul Kim, Linda Roos

Objective

Since the advent of Napster, SETI@Home and Global Grid Forum in the late 1990s,
the words Peer-to-Peer and Grid have been keywords in the world of distributed
computing and networking. For the last few years, both approaches have seen
rapid evolution and widespread deployment across various scientific
research and education communities, expecially who are distributed on a
global-scale high performance network infrastructure. The two technologies
appear to have the same final objectvie - the pooling and coordinated use
of large sets of distributed resources - but are based in different
communities and, at least in their designs, focus on different requirements[1].

In this workshop, we invite distinguished speakers who have lots of experience
in one or both of two approaches, and hear and discuss what kind of opportunies
are expected to be obtained from the synergy between P2P and Grid communities,
as well as what challenges/issues are to be addressed for them, by research
and education comminuties on a high performance network infrastructure.

Application Technology Area Workshop : Middleware Session

Organizers: Heather Boyles, Markus Buckhorn (invited), Keith Hazleton

Objective

This workshop will provide attendees with an opportunity to discuss the importance to national and international research networks and campus-based users of those networks of core middleware technologies and the development of a core middleware infrastructure across   institutions. The experiences of the Internet2 middleware effort in establishing the eduPerson attribute schema, the Shibboleth inter-institutional authentication resource and the emerging trust federations formed by universities in the US and several European countries will be presented. Discussants will focus on why users of grids and video-conferencing should particularly be following core middleware development and deployment.

Application Technology Area Workshop : HDTV video Session

Objective

This HDTV video session is designed to provide attendees with an opportunity to discuss the latest development around the network-based delivery of HD (high-definition) video technology. Aiming to provide immersive experience to end users with HD quality video, lots of efforts are taking place to enable HD video contents over high-speed research networks. In this session, several on-going efforts on HD video delivery will be presented and discussed.

Application Technology Area Workshop :  K20 Session

Organizers: Jacqueline Brown, Vice Provost Louis Fox

Objective

In many nations in the Pacific Rim, efforts are underway to connect the broad education community -- primary and secondary schools, colleges, museums, and libraries -- to national research and education network backbones, thereby engaging innovators from all sectors of education in the development and deployment of advanced network services, middleware, and applications.  Many in the advanced network community believe that that an important lesson learned from previous networking and technology experiences is that big payoffs come from getting tomorrow's technologies (and often preferred, open standard-based versions) into the hands of as many innovators and sectors as quickly and as connectedly as possible. This session will explore initiatives in progress in Korea, Australia, and the United States and will engage the participants in a discussion of similar work, either on-going or contemplated, among other APAN member nations.
