Call for Papers:

Grid 2005 - 6th IEEE/ACM International Workshop on Grid Computing
(held in conjunction with SC05)

November 14, 2005, Seattle, Washington, USA



General Information

In the last few years, the Grid community has been growing very
rapidly and many new technologies and components have been proposed.
This, along with the growing popularity of web-based technologies,
and the availability of cheap commodity components is changing the
way we do computing and business. There are now many ongoing grid
projects with research and production-oriented goals.

Grid 2005 is an international meeting that brings together a community
of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users involved with
the Grid. The objective of Grid 2005 is to serve as a forum to
present current and emerging work as well as to exchange research
ideas in this field.

The previous events in this series were: Grid 2000, Bangalore,
India; Grid 2001, Denver; Grid 2002, Baltimore; Grid 2003, Phoenix;
and Grid 2004, Pittsburgh. All of these events have been successful
in attracting high quality papers and a wide international
participation. Last year's event attracted about 400 registered

The proceedings of the first three workshops were published by
Springer-Verlag, and the proceedings of the two most recent workshops
were published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. We expect this
year's proceedings will join those of the last two years in the
IEEE Computer Society's Digital Library.

Grid 2005 topics of interest (in no particular order)
include, but are not limited to:

* Internet-based Computing Models
* Grid Applications, including eScience and eBusiness Applications
* Data Grids, including Distributed Data Access and Management
* Grid Middleware and Toolkits
* Grid Monitoring, Management and Organization Tools
* Resource Management and Scheduling
* Networking
* Virtual Instrumentation
* Grid Object Metadata and Schemas
* Creation and Management of Virtual Enterprises and Organizations
* Grid Architectures and Fabrics
* Grid Information Services
* Grid Security Issues
* Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
* Grid Economy
* Autonomic and Utility Computing on Global Grids
* Performance Evaluation and Modeling
* Cluster and Grid Integration Issues
* Scientific, Industrial and Social Implications

Paper Submission and Publication

Grid 2005 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work
(also not submitted elsewhere for review) reporting solid and
innovative results in any aspect of grid computing and its applications.
Papers should not exceed 8 single-spaced pages of text using 10-point
size type on 8.5 x 11 inch paper (see IEEE author instructions at
http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm).  All bibliographical
references, tables, and figures must be included in these 8
pages.Submissions that exceed the 8-page limit will not be reviewed.
Authors should submit a PDF file that will print on a PostScript
printer. Electronic submission is required.  The URL of the site
for submission will be listed on the workshop website.  Submission
implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
and present the paper.

Proceedings: All papers selected for this workshop are peer-reviewed
and will be published as a separate proceedings.  After the event,
the papers will be published in IEEE Xplore and in the CS digital

Special Issue: The best 6 to 8 papers from the workshop will be
selected for journal length extension and their publication in a
special issue of International Journal of High Performance Computing
and Networking (IJHPCN). The special issue is expected to be published
in Fall 2006 as issue 3 of 2006.
