International Conference on

Grid computing, high-performAnce
and Distributed Applications (GADA'08)

Monterrey, Mexico, Nov 13 - 14, 2008


In the last decade, grid computing has developed into one of the most 
important topics in the computing field. The research area of grid 
computing has been making particularly rapid progress in the last few 
years, due to the increasing number of scientific applications that are 
demanding intensive use of computational resources and a dynamic and 
heterogeneous infrastructure.

Within this framework, the GADA workshop arose in 2004 as a forum for 
researchers in grid computing whose aim was to extend their background 
in this area, and more specifically, for those who used grid 
environments in managing and analyzing data. Both GADA'04 and GADA'05 
were constituted as successful events, due to the large number of 
high-quality papers received, as well as the brainstorming of 
experiences and ideas interchanged in the associated forums. Because of 
this demonstrated success, GADA was upgraded as a Conference within On 
The Move Federated Conferences and Workshops (OTM'06). GADA'06 covered a 
broader set of disciplines, although grid computing kept a key role in 
the set of main topics of the conference.

The objective of grid computing is the integration of heterogeneous 
computing systems and data resources with the aim of providing a global 
computing space. The achievement of this goal is creating revolutionary 
changes in the field of computation, because it enables resource sharing 
across networks, with data being one of the most important resources. 
Thus, data access, management and analysis within grid and distributed 
environments are also dealt as main part of the conference.

Therefore, the main goal of GADA'08 is to provide a framework in which a 
community of researchers, developers and users can exchange ideas and 
works related to grid, high-performance and distributed applications and 
systems. The second goal of GADA'08 is to create interaction between 
grid computing researchers and the other OTM attendees.

GADA'08 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and 
practitioners by being part of the "On the Move to Meaningful Internet 
Systems and Ubiquitous Computing 2008" federated conferences event that 
includes five co-located conferences:

     * GADA'08 (International Conference on Grid computing, 
high-performAnce and Distributed Applications)

     * ODBASE'08 (International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and 
applications of Semantics)
     * IS'08 (Information Security Symposium)

Papers submitted to GADA'08 must not have been accepted for publication 
elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, 
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All 
submissions must be in English. Submissions should be in PDF format and 
must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready format.

The paper submission site will be announced shortly

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically 
excludes a paper from the proceedings.
