Call for workshops has now closed

The Grid 2010 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held with the Grid 2010 conference. Grid 2010 Workshops provide a forum for discussion among researchers and practitioners of areas of special interest within Grid 2010. Within this scope, several types of workshop organizations are encouraged. Workshops may be organized by invitation or via an open call for participation. Organizers may invite participants to give talks, or to submit papers with a peer-review process. We plan to publish workshop proceedings (for peer-reviewed workshops) with the main conference (under negotiation with ACM/IEEE).

Workshop organizers are expected to be active in the field where they propose a workshop. To foster interaction, the workshops are full-day events limited to 30-50 participants.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Architectures and Middleware
  • Security
  • Service-Orientation
  • Grids and Cloud Computing
  • Applications and Experiences
  • Green-IT
  • Resource Management
  • Interoperability
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Data Management
