High-Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC) combines the advances in 
research and technologies in high speed networks, software, distributed 
computing and parallel processing to deliver high-performance, 
large-scale and cost-effective computational, storage and communication 
capabilities to a wide range of applications.
The intent of this meeting is to provide a forum in which researchers 
report on new ideas and technical insights, application teams express 
the challenges of constructing wide area or scalable high performance 
applications, and technology creators report on future developments.
Content Distribution Networks (CDNs) have emerged to improve the 
efficiency of static, time-dependent and rich media content delivery 
atop large-scale IP-based networks. The main objective of current CDNs 
is the efficient delivery and increased availability of content to the 
consumer. However, modern applications do not just perform retrieval or 
access operation on content but also create content, modify and manage 
content, and actively place content at appropriate locations. To deal 
with such new requirements, the more general Content Networks (CNs) are 
being introduced. Design and implementation of robust and efficient CNs 
in large-scale computing environments demand for emerging paradigms and 
software technologies. Agent, P2P and GRID computing paradigms have 
already demonstrated their suitability in supporting the development of 
high-performance systems over large-scale, dynamic and heterogeneous 
environments. Therefore their integrated use, which accounts for 
dynamism (P2P), robustness (GRID), and intelligence (Agents), can 
augment the effectiveness and boost the efficiency of future content 
distribution infrastructures.
Areas of interest
In this workshop we are interested in the combined issues of using P2P, 
GRID and Agent paradigms and technologies to support effective design 
and efficient implementation of high-performance content networks. In 
particular, the areas of interest are the following (although this list 
should not be treated as exclusive):
* architectures for general-purpose content networks
* architectures for streaming content distribution networks
* protocols and mechanisms for content management
* protocols and mechanisms for content delivery
* protocols and mechanisms for content discovery
* protocols and mechanisms for content distribution
* platforms and tools for content production
* mechanisms for content-based request redirection
* mechanisms for cooperative caching
* frameworks and toolkits for the development of CNs
* novel applications based on CNs
