Event Details/Other Comments:

As the data volumes continue to increase and the ways of information dispersion across the globe continue to diversify, new scalable methods and structures are needed for efficiently processing those distributed and autonomous data. Grid computing, P2P technology, distributed information retrieval technology, and networking technology all must be merged to address the scalability concern. This forum focuses on this key merged domain and looks for new integrated solutions for this diversifying world of information.
Conference Scope:
Parallel Information Retrieval
Scalable Distributed Information Retrieval
Scalable Grid Information Systems
P2P Systems
Scalable Mobile/Sensor DB Systems
Index Compression Methods
Architectures for Scalability
Networking for Scalable Information Systems
Scalable Information System Applications
(medicine, biology, military, etc.)
Evaluation Metrics for Scalability
Data Mining
Information Security
Important Deadlines (tentative):
Paper submission: 1 Oct 2005
Notification: 31 Dec 2005
Final version: 15 Feb 2006
Publications: Original and previously unpublished technical papers are solicited for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Press and available online through IEEE Xplore. Selected papers will be published in journal special issues.
