TERENA has published selected papers from the TERENA Networking Conference 2005. This is the second of a series of annual Web-based publications of the selected papers from TERENA Networking Conferences.

The papers published represent the best of the papers presented at the TERENA Networking Conference 2005 in Poznań, Poland from 6 to 9 June. Over one hundred and sixty extended abstracts were submitted in response to the call for papers, and after review, sixty-two of these were chosen by the Programme Committee for presentation at the conference. In addition, seventy-two recognised experts in their field were invited to give presentations at the conference.

The papers published represent the best of the papers presented at the TERENA Networking Conference 2005 in Poznań, Poland from 6 to 9 June. Over one hundred and sixty extended abstracts were submitted in response to the call for papers, and after review, sixty-two of these were chosen by the Programme Committee for presentation at the conference. In addition, seventy-two recognised experts in their field were invited to give presentations at the conference.

All speakers were then invited to submit full papers for potential selection for this publication of the conference proceedings, and after review by the Programme Committee and other experts when necessary, those that were finally selected were published on the TERENA website.

The papers represent a good mix of subjects covering the entire breadth of the main themes of the conference. The theme of the conference was “The World of Pervasive Networking” and the event included sessions on Grid access and administration, new middleware technology and applications, academic roaming and the deployment and managment of large-scale wireless networks, the enabling of large, distributed scientific collaborations through optical networks, new opportunities for real-time streaming, conferencing and multicast, global connectivity, user issues and new services.

The programme committee was composed of members of the TERENA community in Europe and from the United States and was chaired by Olivier Martin of CERN.

The Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Centre, hosts of the conference will publish the papers later this month in a special edition of the journal, “Computational Methods”.
