Advanced Internet Services and Applications
The rapid growth of the Internet and related services is changing the way we work, act, and even think in a manner that far exceeds the prediction set by ?eld experts not long ago. It is now common belief that the Internet and its various applications covering both hardware appliances and software products will play an increasingly important role in everybody’s daily lives. It is also our strong belief that the importance of the collaborative research and development e?orts focusing on the Internet among academia, industry, and regulating government bodies cannot be overemphasized. It is our great pleasure to hold the First International Workshop on - vanced Internet Services and Applications (AISA) 2002. The workshop is aimed to provide an international forum to share new ideas and research results in the area of the list of workshop topics. Under the main theme “Advances in Int- net Services and Applications”, the workshop topics include QoS architecture, reliability, security, web acceleration, reverse/proxy caching schemes, content delivery network, distributed/fault-tolerant architecture, storage/backup so- tions, media and streaming server, switching technology, and home networking. We have solicited papers on these topics and attracted paper submissions from technically renowned organizations.
