3rd Workshop on Large Scale Computations on Grids
Gdansk, POLAND,
September 9-12, 2007

Large Scale Computations on Grids (LaSCoG) Workshop will be held in
conjunction with the Seventh International Conference on Parallel
Processing and Applied Mathematics (PPAM 2007, http://ppam.pcz.pl).

The emerging paradigm for 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 exchange of ideas and results aimed at addressing complex issues that
arise in developing large-scale computations on grids and running applications on them.

Covered topics include (but are not limited to) grid-focused aspects of:
* Large-scale algorithms
* Symbolic and numeric computations
* High performance computations for large scale simulations
* Large-scale distributed computations
* Agent-based computing
* Data models for large-scale applications
* Security issues for large-scale computations
* Science portals
* Data visualization
* Performance analysis, evaluation and prediction
* Programming models
* Peer-to-peer models and services for scalable grids
* Collaborative science applications
* Business applications

Paper submission and publication:

* Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.
* Papers presented at the Workshop will be included in the Conference
Proceedings and published after the conference by Springer in the LNCS
series (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs)
* Authors should submit papers (as PDF files) by e-mail to Dana Petcu
(petcu@info.uvt.ro) before April 30, 2007.
* Papers are not to exceed 8 pages and have to be prepared using LNCS
style (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
* Extended versions of selected papers will be published in a special
issue of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
