Is this the End of End-to-End?

The Network Storage Symposium (NetStore '99) was devoted to exploring technical issues in logistical networking: the use of storage resources as components of the network's communicative infrastructure. The most common examples of logistical networking in today's global Internet are caching and replication. NetStore '99 targeted an expanded area of investigation which includes more general and innovative applications of storage resources in networking.

All available NetStore'99 presentations and papers are linked to this page, creating an online proceedings and a permanent record of the event.

NetStore'99 was sponsored by Internet2/UCAID and by the Innovative Computing Laboratory.
