         The National Laboratory for Applied Network Research is sponsoring a
         two-day workshop on Web Caching June 5 &6, 1997 in Boulder, Colorado,
         Participants are required to submit a short position paper on some
         subject related to Web caching. Selected participants will be asked to
         make a presentation of their work. We are primarily interested in
         real-world experiences. Some potential topics are:
           * Legal, Economic, and Socio-Political
                + Copyright issues and proposed solutions.
                + Charging models.
                + Content filtering.
                + Hit Metering -- Experiences and thoughts.
           * Measurement and Analysis
                + Are cache hierarchies worth the trouble? Do upper-level
                  caches provide enough benefit to warrant their operation?
                + Measurement tools -- how can you tell if a cache is helping
                  or hurting?
           * Protocols and Services
                + Multicast -- how can Web caches best utilize multicast?
                + Internet Cache Protocol -- Should ICP evolve towards object
                  location or policy expression?
                + Using a proxy/cache to provide different qualities of
                + Modelling cache requests -- predictions for prefetching.
                + Push models.
           * Optimization, Configuration, and Operation
                + Transparent proxying.
                + Cache-routing -- Techniques to locate the nearest/best
                  instance of an object.
                + Easier configuration or tighter access controls?
                + Using a cache as a Web server front-end.
                + Operating system issues.
         Papers should be around 2-3 pages in length and submitted no later
         than April 25, 1997. We will gladly accept papers in text, postscript,
         or HTML. Please mail papers and/or URLs to cache-workshop at nlanr dot net.
         We would like to have an early estimate on the number of attendees. If
         you plan on submitting a paper, please let us know ahead of time.
