The Task Force on Network Storage Architecture at HICSS is open to all
HICSS attendees.   Its topic will be how storage should be networked.
All opinions, including those rejecting any changes in current architectures
are sought.   The task force will write a report for publication in a 
widely read computer journal such as Computer.   

FYI: NSIC NASD is a industry working group focussed on the evolution of 
network-attached storage.  See  
It will host a public forum (in addition to the above task force)
IF you come forward to speak on your projects and future plans.  Please do.
