5th International Workshop on
Content Delivery Networks (CDN 2010)
to take place during
10th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2010)
17-20 May 2010, Melbourne, Australia

*** Papers Due: 5th December 2009 ***

We are in the midst of an Internet computing revolution. One vision of
21st century computing is that users will access
Internet services and ?resource-hungry" applications (e.g., gaming,
streaming media etc.) over lightweight portable devices
rather than through some descendant of the traditional desktop PCs. In
this context, distributing and processing
Internet-based data in an efficient and cost-effective manner is a
challenging issue in Internet technology.
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have emerged to address this challenge
by offering infrastructure and mechanisms
to deliver content and services in a scalable manner. Nevertheless,
modern applications do not just perform retrieval
or access operation on content, but also create, modify and manage
content, and actively place them at appropriate locations.
To deal with such new requirements, more general Content Networks (CNs)
are being introduced. Design and implementation of
robust and efficient CNs in large-scale computing environments demand
for the use of emerging paradigms and software
technologies, such as Peer-to-Peer, Grid and the latest IT trend?Cloud
computing. The integration of these emerging
technologies in content delivery opens new perspectives in Internet
technologies, raising new issues in the architecture,
design and implementation of existing CDNs.

Areas of interest
CDN 2010 is intended as a forum for lively discussion of aggressively
innovative and potentially disruptive ideas
in all aspects of CDNs. The main theme of this full day workshop is
"Content Delivery in the Cloud".
CDN 2010 will capture new research trends and results in terms of
design, architecture,
and applications for content and service delivery in the Internet and
optimization for Cloud-based content delivery; and performance
measurement methodologies.
Position papers will be strongly favored.
Specifically, the areas of interest are the following (but are not limited):

* Cloud/Grid/P2P/Agent-based Content delivery and management on the
* Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications
* Service-Level Agreements (SLAs), business models and service pricing
* Content distribution internetworking scenarios, architectures and
* Cross-platform interoperability
* Performance of application and service delivery in the Cloud
* Scalable, self-managing and autonomic Content Delivery Clouds
* Privacy, security, ownership and reliability issues
