                               The 2001 International Workshop on
   Cluster Infrastructure for Web Server and E-Commerce (CISC'2001)   or

                                        Organized At

 IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid
                    May 16 - 18, 2001, Brisbane, Australia

  In Corporation with the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)


            The availability of high-speed networks and high-performance
is making networks of computers an appealing vehicle for cost-effective
internet and
business computing. Clusters of computers built using commodity hardware
software are playing a major role in web server design and E-Commerce.

            The CISC'2001 workshop organized at the CCGrid'2001
symposium will
serve as a major forum to present and share the latest research results
of the
work by international researchers, developers, and users. The focus of
this workshop
will be on both architecture and software aspects of web server and
by using cluster technology. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

Web Server

      Scalability of clusters as web server
      Network architecture and protocol of cluster as web server
      Caching Algorithms for web server
      Web server performance
      Web server benchmark
      Network attached storage for web server
      Database for web server
      Security for web server
      Traffic Models & Statistics
      Job scheduling and load balancing for clustered web server
      Web server design and consolidation
      Web server monitoring and management
      Quality of Service of web server
      Web server for E-Commerce
      Fault tolerance and high availability of cluster as web sever
      Web server case studies by using cluster technology


      Cluster, Hypercluster and Grid architecture for E-Commerce
      Security and cryptographic issues, methods and applications
      Cyber Guards
      Digital certification, identification and authentication in
      Information storage, retrieval and update
      Web-based storage for E-Commerce
      Commerce-oriented middleware services
