Call for Papers
3rd International Workshop on Grid and Peer-to-Peer based Workflows (GPWW)
September 24th 2007, Brisbane, Australia
To be held in conjunction with the
5th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2007) 

Submission deadline 8 June 2007.

Many e-science and complex e-business applications, such as climate
modelling, astrophysics, high-energy physics, structural biology and
chemistry, medical surgery, international banking, insurance, international
stock market modelling and control, require the creation of a collaborative
workflow management system as part of their sophisticated problem solving
processes in the grid environments. At the same time, since many
e-scientists and business people lack the necessary low-level expertise to
utilize the current generation of Grid toolkits, such as GT4, and the
specified workflow processes themselves can then be reused, shared, adapted
and annotated with interpretations of quality, provenance and security, the
research and development of grid workflow management systems become a must
and have already evoked a high degree of interest. Furthermore, because the
Grid requires a very highly distributed workflow management that can take
advantage of the distributed resources across multi-institutional virtual
organizations, the decentralized grid workflow deployment becomes a further
interesting research area. As such, peer-to-peer based workflow comes into
the picture, which is supposed to provide a kind of decentralized grid
workflow infrastructure to more efficiently support widely spread grid
workflows across the Grid. Given that a lot of valuable work has been done
on business process management, the exploration of whether and how to apply
existing business process technologies into grid workflow process management
is another important focus of this workshop. 

The International Workshop on Grid and Peer-to-Peer based Workflows was
successfully held in 2005 and 2006, in Melbourne, Australia, and Vienna,
Austria, respectively. This year's workshop will be held in conjunction with
the 5th International Conference on Business Process Management, in
Brisbane, Australia. The objective is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and government to report advances in
grid and peer-to-peer based workflow research. The workshop will cover the
broad spectrum of research relevant to grid and peer-to-peer based
workflows, including, but not limited to, the following:


.        E-science, grid and P2P workflow and middleware infrastructure

.        Grid workflow API and GUI

.        Workflow specification languages targeting grid applications

.        Grid workflow execution engines

.        Grid services that support workflow execution

.        Grid workflow verification and validation

.         Semantics based workflow composition and construction 

.         Workflow and data curation and provenance 

.         Workflow interoperability 

.        Agent based workflow 

.        Formal representation, e-science workflow patterns, and temporal

.        Grid workflow system performance analysis

.        Specialized tools for managing grid workflow such as exception

.        Decentralized grid workflow infrastructure

.        Peer-to-peer based workflow management in grid infrastructure

.        Non-functional issues, like QoS and security, in peer-to-peer based

.        Real world applications of scientific, grid and P2P workflows

.        Simulation environments for grid and peer-to-peer workflow

.        Application of business process management techniques in grid

Submission Requirements

All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality,
technical quality and relevance to workshop themes. Papers should be no more
than 12 pages and should be formatted in LNCS format (see
www.springer.de/comp/lncs/ authors.html for details). Submitted papers must
be written in English and identify the contribution of the paper. Please
submit your manuscripts to gpww@ict.swin.edu.au.

Publication of Papers

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published in LNCS by the
Springer. The proceedings will be available after the conference in December
of 2007 or January of 2008. Authors of accepted papers must register for the
BPM 2007 conference and attend the workshop to present their papers.
Selected papers will be invited to a special issue in a major international
