===========================================================================

                                Workshop on

       Emerging Technologies for Next generation GRID (ETNGRID-2004)

        13th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies:
        Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2004)

              http://www.diit.unict.it/users/csanto/etngrid04/

               University of Modena, Italy, June 14-16, 2004

===========================================================================

The Grid  was originally  designed as a  large network of  computer
systems able  to offer  an environment  where computing and storage
resources are shared on-demand.

To  date, the  development  of standards,  such  as the   Open Grid
Service  Architecture  (OGSA),  along with the  introduction of new
paradigms, such as the Semantic Grid, is leading the Grid toward an
environment  that is not only  suited  for  computational-intensive
applications,   but  also  for computing   scenarios   typical   of
distributed   systems,   like   service  and information providing,
multimedia environments, ubiquitous computing, etc.

For  these  and   other  reasons,  the   Grid    is   becoming   an
interesting and challenging environment supporting  both   old  and
new   services  for cooperative  applications. A relevant  research
effort  is thus  needed  not  only  to  investigate innovative Grid
infrastructures but also to  make the current Grid  model  suitable
for these emerging usage scenarios.

The  objective  of   this  workshop  is   to   gather   researchers
working  on different   emerging  Grid   computing aspects relevant
to  enterprise collaboration,  covering  issues  ranging  from  the
middleware  layer  to application development and user interaction.

The  goals  of  the workshop  include  (but  are  not  limited  to)
discovering new  application scenarios, proposing   new programming
abstractions and  tools,  identifying  the challenging problem that
still  need  to  be  solved,  and reporting results and experiences
gained   by   researchers   in   building   Grid-based  middleware,
applications and alike.


Submission Requirements
-----------------------

Participants  are  expected to  submit  an  original research paper
or  a  position paper, not  submitted  or published  elsewhere,  by
email to Corrado Santoro, corrado.santoro@diit.unict.it  (make sure
that the subject of the email says "ETNGRID'04 Submission").

Submission should include the title of  the  paper, the  names  and
affiliations of the  authors, a 150-word abstract and at most eight
keywords. Submission should follow the IEEE  format (single spaced,
two columns, 10pt, Times font)  and not exceed  10 pages, including
figures.  Accepted  papers will  be published along with the WETICE
2004 post-proceedings.
The paper should be in either PS or PDF format.

Papers must focus on collaborative aspects of  the  Grid, including,
but not limiting to, the following topics:

    * Middlewares for the Grid

    * Multimedia applications with the Grid

    * Reliability and Quality-of-Service aspects

    * Wireless and ubiquitous access to the Grid

    * Cooperative Agents and the Grid

    * Web integration with the Grid

    * Abstractions and tools for collaborative application
      development in Grid environments

    * Semantic Grid

    * Experience reports on collaborative application development
      in Grid

    * Scalability and Performance issues in the Grid

    * Analysis of stability and bottlenecks for Grid applications

    * Resource-aware applications in the Grid

    * Architectures for Grid-oriented applications

    * Security and Verification Issues in Large Distributed Systems
