                              Call for Papers

            GRID'2000: International Workshop on Grid Computing


                            In Conjunction with

   7th International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC'2000)

                  December 17-20, 2000, Bangalore, India

         Co-sponsored by the
                IEEE Computer Society and
                ACM SIGARCH

        In Co-operation with the
              IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing and
              EuroTools SIG on Metacomputing


The growing popularity of the Internet along with the availability of
powerful computers and high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components
is changing the way we do computing. This technology opportunity enables
the clustering of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources
such as supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and special classes
of devices, and allows them to be used as a single unified resource and
thus forms what is popularly known as "computational grids".  The
computational grid is analogous to power (electricity) grid and aims to
couple geographically distributed resources and offer consistent and
inexpensive access to resources irrespective of their physical location or
access point. Some of the research projects that have popularised the
concept of grid computing includes: Globus, Legion, Nimrod/G, DISCWorld,
AppLeS, and others.

GRID'2000 is an international meeting that brings together international
grid computing researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim
of GRID'2000 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as
well as to exchange research ideas in this field.


GRID'2000 will emphasize both the design, analysis, implementation, and
deployment of grid computing environments and applications as well as their
use in scientific, engineering, and commercial settings.  The topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

        * Grid Fabrics and Architectures
        * Grid Middleware and Toolkits
        * Resource Management and Scheduling
        * Grid Information Services
        * Grid Security Issues
        * Advance Resource Reservation and Scheduling
        * Remote Data Access and Management
        * Grid Management and Organization Tools
        * Issues in integrating Clusters into Grid environment
        * Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
        * Performance Evaluation and Modelling of Gird Systems
        * Internet-based Computing Models
        * Collaborative Engineering Environments
        * Grid Applications (scientific, engineering, and business)
        * Computational Economy
        * Social, Scientific, and Industrial Implications of
          Computational Grids

Paper Submission

GRID'2000 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work
that demonstrate current research in all areas of Grid Computing including
design and analysis of computational grids or metacomputers and their
applications in science, technology, and commercial areas.

The paper should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages of text using 10 point
size type on A4 pages. Electronic submission by email is strongly
encouraged. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that
will print on a PostScript printer using A4 size paper. To facilitate
processing, each submission should also enclose the following information
in ASCII format: paper title, author name, abstract, up to five keywords,
as well as the contacting information of the responsible author (postal
address, e-mail address, phone/fax numbers). The results presented in the
paper must be original. Submission implies the willingness of at least one
of the authors to register and present the paper. Hard copies should be
sent only if electronic submission is not possible. Please send full paper
for consideration to any one of the Workshop Co-Chairs. The hard copy
submissions can be mailed, however, electronic submission is strongly

GRID'2000  also encourages the submission of outstanding "work-in-progress"
type of research, however, the size of such papers is restricted to 5


All papers selected for this workshop by peer-review process will be
published as a separate proceedings (titled as "Grid Computing") through
Springer Verlag (LNCS series), Germany.
