Call for Papers

Erfurt, Germany, September 27-30, 2004


The GSEM'04 conference will be held in conjunction with the 5th 
International Conference Net.ObjectDays 2004 (NODE'04) and the European 
Conference  on Web Services 2004 (ECOWS'04) in Erfurt, Germany, 
September 27-30,  2004.

Aims and Scope
The Grid has emerged as a global platform to support on-demand virtual 
organizations for coordinated sharing of distributed data, applications 
and  processes. Service orientation of the Grid also makes it a 
promising platform  for seamless and dynamic development, integration 
and deployment of  service-oriented applications. The application 
components can be discovered,  composed and delivered within a Grid of 
services, which are loosely coupled  to create dynamic business 
processes and agile applications spanning  organizations and computing 
platforms. The technologies contributing to such  Grids of services 
include Web Services, Semantic Web, Grid Computing,  Component Software 
and Agent Technology.

The GSEM'04 conference is an international forum for the presentation of 
the  latest theoretical and practical results in technology solutions 
for engineering  and management of Grid services and service-oriented 

The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners 
from  diverse fields and interests, including Web Services, Semantic 
Web, Grid  infrastructures, software components, workflow, intelligent 
agents and  negotiation technologies, service management, and those 
looking for new  business and research cooperation opportunities in the 
area of Grid services  and service-oriented applications.

Suggested Topics
We invite research papers, work-in-progress reports and industrial 
experiences describing advances in all areas of grid service engineering 
and  management, including, but not limited to:
     * Convergence of Web Services, Semantic Web, Agent Technology and 
the Grid
     * Confluence of Service-oriented Architectures based on Web 
Services with Grid Computing
     * Usage of Web Services and Agents in a Grid infrastructure
     * Crosscutting concerns in Grid services (e.g. AOSD)
     * Modeling, description and discovery of Grid services
     * Deployment, packaging, and distribution of Grid services
     * Semantic technologies and their deployment in service Grids
     * Business semantics, meta data, and ontologies in service Grids
     * Grid service architectures, infrastructures and deployment 
     * Software engineering for Grid service creation, development, and 
generation (including languages, modeling, OMG's MDA, generative 
programming techniques, Domain-Specific Languages, feature-based 
configuration, etc.)
     * Service provisioning, correctness, and aspects of Quality of 
Service for Grid services
     * Workflow planning and composition for Grid services (including 
languages, algorithms, resources, etc.)
     * Service composition models and languages
     * Grid service compatibility and interoperability
     * Matchmaking and negotiated service composition
     * Service level agreement negotiation and contracting
     * Dynamic coordination of grid services and applications
     * Adaptive management, monitoring and control of Grid services and 
     * Formation and management of virtual organizations
     * Service communication languages and protocols
     * Grid service policy and meta-policy management
     * Agents-based grid service infrastructures
     * Intelligent services and Grid service agents
     * Agents-based service brokering and composition planning
     * Agent-based monitoring and control of Grid services
     * Security, performance and reliability engineering in service Grids
     * Testing and benchmarking of grid services and infrastructures
     * Functional and non-functional aspects of Grid services
     * Social aspects of Grid service integration and interactions
     * Grid service business models and applications (e.g. in 
e-Business, e-Science, Enterprise, Telecom etc.)
     * Integration and interoperability of grid services and legacy systems
     * Standardization aspects

Submission Guidelines
Full papers must not exceed 15 pages (see http://www.netobjectdays.org 
Menu For Authors). All papers should be in Adobe portable document 
format  (PDF) or PostScript format. The paper should have a cover page, 
which  includes a 200-word abstract, a list of keywords, and author's 
e-mail address. Authors should submit a full paper via electronic 
submission to  rkowalczyk@it.swin.edu.au. All papers accepted for 
GSEM'04 are peerreviewed and will be published in a special proceedings 
by Springer Verlag,  Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). A 
selection of high quality papers will be invited to submit extended and 
  enhanced versions of their papers to the upcoming special issue of a 
major  international journal.
