  - Highly Available Distributed Systems
  - Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture
  - Grid Computing
  - Peer-to-Peer Systems
  - Large-Scale Group Communication, Coordination and Cooperation
  - Wireless Communication and Networks
  - Performance Modeling Large-Scale Distributed Systems
  - Distributed Multimedia Systems
  - Novel Distributed Applications

Workshop Location:
  Suzhou, China

Workshop Date:
  May 26-28, 2004

  The workshop seeks submissions on any of the above topics with
  particular emphasis on revolutionary rather than incremental approaches.
  Manuscripts should be about 3000 words (minimum 10pt type),
  roughly 8 double-spaced pages excluding Tables and Figures.
  All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in PDF
  or PostScript format.   Details will be posted on the workshop web page
  Submissions will be reviewed by the members of the program committee
