More and more different types of applications use the Internet as a large distributed system in the last few years. With this development many challenging new research problems have emerged. A successful treatment of these problems requires multi-disciplinary collaboration between researchers from different fields. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the area of Internet foundations and applications to discuss the current state of the art in the described field and to identify promising directions for research.

... to be covered include but are not limited to the following:

Data consistency
Graph theoretical models of large distributed systems
Internet algorithms
Data encryption
Intelligent distributed systems
Resource management in large distributed systems
Resource discovery and brokering
Self-organizing and adaptive systems
Distributed computing
Software engineering for Internet Systems
Applications: e-commerce, multimedia

For the camera-ready manuscript you should refer to Springer-Verlag instructions for authors:

Ilmenau is a small town with about 30000 inhabitants. It was founded in 1341. For a long time mining and glassworks were the main industries. In the 18th century Ilmenau`s history was strongly influenced by the famous poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe who was also minister of mining at that time. Even though the Ilmenau Technical University, created in 1992, is one of the youngest universities in Germany engineering education enjoys a long and rich tradition in Ilmenau. It started with the opening of the Thuringian Technikum (technical school) in Ilmenau in 1894, and continued with the Hochschule für Elektrotechnik (College of Electrical Engineering) in 1953 and the Technische Hochschule Ilmenau (Technical College of Ilmenau) in 1963. Last but not least the surrounding of Ilmenau made the city to an important touristic center in southern Thuringia.
