First International Conference on Scalable 
Information Systems (INFOSCALE), May 29 - June 1 2006, Hong Kong

Sponsors





Hong Kong Pei Hua Education Foundation Ltd K. C. Wong Education Foundation

As the data volumes continue to increase and the ways of information dispersion across the globe continue to diversify, new scalable methods and structures are needed for efficiently processing those distributed and autonomous data. Grid computing, P2P technology, distributed information retrieval technology, and networking technology all must be merged to address the scalability concern. This forum focuses on this key merged domain and looks for new integrated solutions for this diversifying world of information.

Hong Kong truly enchants its visitors with a magical blend of east and west, old and new - from towering skyscrapers and neon nightlife, to street markets and traditional temples. It is one of the most exciting but safest cities in Asia. Being in the center of Pacific Asia, it is the ideal hub from which to visit the rest of the region. Reputed as the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong boosts a wide range of Chinese, Asian, Western and international restaurants, making it a perfect place to sample the world's cuisine. Hong Kong is a mosaic of thrilling experiences, memorable adventures, and pure serenity.
