APAN Working Groups
APAN e-Science WG
  • e-Science is broadly defined as science
    activities that rely on high bandwidth network
  • This may include the transfer of data, building /
    operating distributed archives, distributed data
    processing, access to documents or training,
    remote operation of facility instruments,
    interactive collaborations.
  • APAN has a natural role in e-Science through
    providing bandwidth network operating tools.

e-Science WG Objectives
  • Provide a venue for discussion of e-Science among
    scientists between scientists network
  • Promote e-Science initiatives among APAN members,
    between APAN other international groups.
  • Conduct of e-Science demonstration projects,
    training outreach.
  • Provide a venue for outreach dissemination of
    successful not so successful projects what we
    can learn from them.

    in APAN and related communities to present and
    publish their research results in the areas of
  • Network technology
  • Network engineering
  • Network measurement
  • Application technology
  • Communication technology
  • Network architecture

    on key issues of identity management in the areas
    of schemas, directories with some pointers on how
    this needs to be coordinated on a national and
    international level to support collaborations.
  • The success of the middleware WG is due to
  • APANs commitment and secretariat support to our
  • a combination of individuals assisting as chairs
    and speakers,
  • we are deeply grateful for everyones support and
    their organizations

Approach in driving Grid Collaboration under APAN
  • Key Focus
  • Bringing together grid practitioner in APAN WG
    such as middleware, E-science, e-culture to share
    common information
  • Focus more on the creating of the new
    opportunities in APAN regarding the grid by
    stimulating the cross WGs interaction
  • Providing communication infrastructure and
    centralize information center for APAN grid
    activities Wiki, Mailing list
  • Focus on setting up common activities among
    various grid related WG in the next APAN meeting

APAN Security WG
  • Objectives
  • Prepare policies and guidelines for the security
    architecture for APAN Organization as well as
    monitoring its implementation.
  • To raise the security awareness and knowledge
    within APAN community, and
  • To cooperate with other international security
    efforts to raise security awareness, capabilities
    and interoperation globally.
  • To achieve the objectives the working group will
    conduct bi-annual Joint sessions/
    Workshops/Tutorials and WG meetings during APAN
    meetings. (Potentially with NOC and Measurement
  • Security architecture includes protection of the
    physical, intellectual, and electronic assets of
    the APAN, including its security policies,
    network access controls, virus protection,
    network administration and transaction security.
  • The security architecture must address issues
    relating to authentication, authorization,
    confidentiality, data integrity non-repudiation,
    and isolation.
