Algorithms and Data Structures for the Internet

Special Track for the

23rd Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on
Principles Of Distributed Computing (PODC 2004)

July 25-28, 2004, St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada

The Internet is the modern platform for distributed computing. PODC has historically focused more on a higher level, abstracting away the platform on which the computation takes place. But PODC was covering and contributing algorithms for distributing computing before the Internet platform arrived. The special track on Internet Algorithms will attempt to expand the focus and the community, and bring modern trends on Internet research closer to the PODC community, seeding future areas of research for the years to come.

We are soliciting research contributions on the design, specification, and implementation of algorithms for current and future Internet applications. Both theoretical work and practical work that demonstrates fundamental principles of distributed computing in this setting are desired. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

The special track is an integral part of PODC. The papers for the special track are to be submitted to PODC, as described in the PODC call for papers. The PODC program committee reflects expertise in the subjects of the special track, as well as in other PODC subjects. For the dates, formats, submission instructions, etc. please see the PODC call for papers.
