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 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 2004 is an international meeting that brings together a community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users involved with the Grid. The objective of Grid 2004 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 that are part of this series of events were Grid 2000, Bangalore, India; Grid 2001, Denver, CO; Grid 2002, Baltimore, MD; Grid 2003, Phoenix, USA. All of these events have been successful in attracting high quality papers and a wide international participation. Last years event attracted over 400 registered participants.

Since the first event we have published our own independent proceedings, either with Spinger-Verlag or more recently with the IEEE Computer Society Press.

Grid 2004 partially follows the focus of last years event, but extends it to also include service-oriented grid and utility computing technologies, with greater emphasis on e-Science and e-Business applications. Overall topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

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

Paper Submission and Publication

Grid 2004 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work (also not submitted elsewhere for review) reporting solid and innvovative results in any aspect of grid computing and its applications.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, a LaTeX style sheet and WORD format is available, too). Authors should submit a PDF or PostScript (level 2) file that will print on a PostScript printer. Electronic submission through the workshop website, http://www.gridbus.org/~workshop/GRID2004/forms/authpaper_reg.html, is strongly encouraged. Hard copies will be accepted only if electronic submission is not possible. 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 by  the IEEE Computer Society (CS) Press. After the event, the papers will also be published in the CS digital library. For author instructions see http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm

Special Issue: The best 6 papers from the workshop will be selected for journal length extension and their publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS). The special issue is expected to be published in early 2005.
