      Architectures for Distributed Systems

      Software Technology Track Mini-track
      Forty-second Annual
      Hawaii International Conference of Systems Sciences
      January 5-8, 2009
      Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort
      Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii


      As the global Internet extends its reach with both backbone and "to the
      edge" bandwidth increasing with a concomitant drop in latency, the
      deployment of globally distributed services has become a reality.
      Popular deployed examples, each with a different distributed
      architecture and two of which are opensource, are Skype that spans the
      globe and consistently has between seven and ten million active users;
      Second Life’s 3-D world; SETI@Home’s "BOINC" computational Grid;
      BitTorrent’s Content Distribution Network; and ppLive, and ppStream in
      China, as well as Zattoo in Europe, all of three which are video
      streaming applications.

      Realizing there are many possible architectures and methodologies for
      distributed systems, including agent-oriented and resource-oriented
      architectures, Peer-to-Peer architectures, Grids, and hybrid systems
      that combine the qualities of two or more of these, this mini-track will
      explore the relative merits of different services that these distributed
      architectures offer from an interdisciplinary perspective by bringing
      together participants with technology backgrounds, practitioners from
      industry, members of open source communities, and researchers to discuss
      and evaluate the technology.

      Thus, in this spirit the topics of this mini-track include
      but are not limited to the following:

      - Computational Grids
      - Distributed Search
      - Gossip-Based Protocols
      - Mobile/Autonomous Agent Systems
      - Monitoring Distributed Systems
      - Overlay Networks
      - P2P Live and On-demand Media Streaming
      - P2P, Large-scale, Dynamic, Distributed Systems
      - RESTful Systems
      - Security and Trust in Distributed Systems
      - Self-management Distributed Systems
      - Secure Distributed Messaging Systems

      Accepted papers may be theoretical, conceptual, or descriptive in
      nature. All contributions must be original and NOT currently submitted
      or scheduled for publication elsewhere. Those selected for presentation
      will be published in the Conference Proceedings published by the IEEE
      Computer Society.

      From now to June 1: Prepare Abstracts. Authors may contact mini-track
      chairs for guidance and appropriateness of content.

      June 15: Authors submit full papers by this date following the author
      instructions at:

      All papers will be submitted in double column publication format and
      limited to 10 pages including diagrams and references. HICSS papers
      undergo a double-blind review (June 15 – August 15).

      August 15: Acceptance notices are sent to Authors.

      September 15: Authors submit the final version of papers following the
      submission instructions posted on the HICSS website:

      At least one author of each paper must register by this date with
      specific plans to attend the conference.

      October 2: Papers without at least one registered author will be pulled
      from the publication process; authors will be notified.
