The tight-head prop was called up to Andy Robinson's Six Nations Scotland squad after a knee injury forced the withdrawal of his Warriors team-mate Moray Low.
Kalman played well against European champions Leinster on Sunday when Glasgow pushed the Heineken Cup holders to the wire.
Boosted by his Scotland call-up, Kalman, who has been with Galsgow since the disbanding of Border Reivers in 2007, said he wants to commit to Warriors for the long-haul.
The 29-year-old said: "I have started talks with Warriors over a new deal as my current one is up at the end of the season.
"It is very early days but I want to stay with Glasgow and kick on.
"There is a buzz about the place and with the move to Scotstoun next season and the players that have been brought in, like Rory and Sean Lamont, and David Lemi, exciting times await."
Kalman added: "It is a massive honour to be called up to the Six Nations squad.
"I have had a few 'A' caps but to be asked to move up to the full squad is exciting.
"As a rugby player you can't get any better and I am now just hungry to make the most of the opportunity.
"I felt I had been playing well and maybe Sunday's game against Leinster tipped things my way."
Warriors' hopes of remaining in European action rest on securing a place in the Amlin Cup.
Glasgow are worst positioned of the six second-placed teams in the Heineken Cup Pool sections, and if they remain so after the weekend's final games they will be out of Europe completely.
But Northampton, second in Pool One on 12 points, and Biarritz and Ospreys who are joint second in Pool Five on 13 points, and play each other in their final fixture, are catchable if Sean Lineen's side beat Bath at the Rec.
That said, Warriors may well need to earn a bonus point as well.
But Kalman hopes he and his mates can claim an historic win at Bath.
He said: "We know we are the worst positioned of the six second-placed teams in the Pool sections and only a win at Bath will do.
"But we have put so much into this campaign and we don't want to come away empty handed."
Reflecting on his performance against Leinster, Ed said: "Possibly it was the best game I have played for Glasgow, but personal satisfaction is diminished as we came so close to getting a result but ultimately came away empty handed."
