2nd Symbolic Grid Computing Workshop

in conjunction with


7th International Symposium on
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
Timisoara, Romania
September 25 - 29, 2005

Workshop description

Grid Computing is emerging as a next-generation parallel and distributed
computing platform driven by the Internet, Web services technologies, and
service-oriented computing architectures. The research area of grid
computing is making rapid progress, owing to the increasing necessity of
computation in the resolution of complex applications.
In this category falls also several symbolic computing applications.

The Symbolic Grid Computing Workshop seeks to provide a bridge between the
symbolic computing community and the developers of grid applications.

The workshop goal is to bring together researchers, developers,
practitioners, and users,
- to assess the current state-of-the-art
- to identify major needs and opportunities
- to identify the key application requirements and
scenarios on the grid
- to exchange ideas and chart future directions
- to gather/spread the information about tools,
toolkits and other mechanisms for symbolic
computing on grids
- to broaden the symbolic grid computing community
by encouraging new users to use the grid
technologies and computer algebra systems

The workshop is seeking papers from different areas of grid
and symbolic computing, especially those concerned with
symbolic computing on the grid.


Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Symbolic computing application requirements towards grids
* High-performance computing in symbolic computing applications
* Grid solutions for computation-intensive applications
* Accessing external services from CAS, network enabled servers
* Converting existing applications and designing new applications to
run on the grid
* Internet-based computing models and computing services
* Collaboration technologies
* Simulations in grid environments
* Grid application toolkits
* Security in computational grids
* Grid-based data mining
* Extracting knowledge from computational grids
* Performance evaluation and modeling
* Virtual scientific experiments and labs
* Metadata infrastructures for grid computing
* Task ontologies and service composition languages
* Agent-architectures for grid environments or based on
grid computing technologies

Submission of papers:

Papers of up to 8 pages can be submitted electronically in Latex
format (IEEE paper style) to petcu@info.uvt.ro. The papers will be
refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance
to the Workshop topics. Those accepted will be published in the
SYNASC'05 post-proceedings (IEEE Computer Press).
