   Workshop on Combinatorial and Algorithmic Aspects of Networking


                     SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS


                 Extended deadline: May 10, 2004


      Banff International Research Station (BIRS), Aug 5-7, 2004


The Internet because of its size, decentralized nature, and loosely
controlled architecture provides a hotbed of challenges that are amenable
to mathematical analysis and algorithmic techniques. This workshop brings
together mathematicians, theoretical computer scientists and network
specialists. This fast growing area is an intriguing intersection of
Computer Science/Graph Theory/Game Theory/Networks.

Original research papers are solicited. The list of topics for the
conference includes, but is not limited to:


    * Economics, Game Theory and the Internet
    * Geometric Routing
    * Web Caching
    * Combinatorics
    * Tomography
    * Peer-to-peer systems
    * Graph Theory/Web Graph
    * Data Stream analysis
    * Statistical Distributions
    * Optimization

 as they relate to Networks in general and the Internet in particular.

The workshop will be organized as a series of talks with time for focused
discussions.  We solicit general participation and invite presentations on
all aspects of networking challenges that can be addressed using
techniques from theoretical computer science and mathematics. The goal of
of the workshop and working group is to foster interdisciplinary
collaborations among researchers in this field.

Submissions

Authors should send an extended abstract in postscript or PDF format by
May 3, 2004. The paper should not exceed 12 pages in length on letter-size
paper using 11 point or larger font. Submissions are open using the
electronics submission server at
http://sigact.acm.org/~caan04/CAAN2004.html

Submission Deadline:    May 10, 2004
Notification Deadline:  June 1, 2004

	Submission instructions will be made available later in this page.
A post-proceedings volume with revised full workshop papers will be
published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

BIRS
The Banff International Research Station (BIRS) is a collaborative effort
of the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Science (PIMS, Canada) and
the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI, Berkeley, USA).
Located in beautiful Banff, Alberta, Canada, BIRS hosts mathematical
workshops for forty weeks of the year, principally in five- or two- day
formats.  The objective of these workshops is to foster collaboration and
creativity in various areas of mathematics and computer science. BIRS is
part of the Banff Centre, an international centre for the creative arts.

Participation in the workshops at BIRS is by invitation only. As space is
limited, we can only guarantee an invitation for one co-author for each
paper.
