The emerging paradigm for the execution of large-scale computations, whether they originate as scientific or engineering applications, or for supporting large data-intensive calculations, is to utilize multiple computers at sites distributed across the Internet. In particular, computational grids are collections of distributed, possibly heterogeneous resources which can be
used as ensembles to execute large-scale applications. While the vision of the global computational grid is extremely appealing, there remains a lot of work on all levels to achieve it. In this context the LaSCoG workshop is envisioned as a forum to promote the exchange of ideas and results aimed at addressing complex issues that arise in developing large-scale computations on grids and running applications on them.

Topics of interest cover interactions between large-scale problems and computational grids (and these key-words should be used in the context of each of the topics listed below), in particular:

* Symbolic and numeric computations
* Data visualization
* Simulations
* Agent-based computing
* Algorithms and their implementation
* Programming models
* Data models
* Science portals
* Collaborative science applications
* Performance analysis, evaluation and prediction
* Dynamic scheduling and load balancing
* Security issues
