                             Fourth Workshop on

       Emerging Technologies for Next generation GRID (ETNGRID-2008)

        17th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies:
        Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2008)


                     Rome, Italy, 23th-25th June 2008


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, through the EasyChair
web site (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=etngrid08).  You  will
require an  EasyChair  account.  If  you do not have  an EasyChair account,
instructions  are  provided as  to how to create  one on the EasyChair page
for ETNGRID08.  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 six pages, including figures.
Accepted   papers  will   be   published  along   with   the  WETICE   2007
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

    * Reflective and Aspect-Oriented Grid systems

    * Reliability and Quality-of-Service aspects

    * Wireless and ubiquitous access to the Grid

    * Cooperative Agents and the Grid

    * Grids and Peer-to-peer systems

    * Web integration with the Grid

    * Peer-to-peer and self-organizing approaches for 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

Important Dates

    * Paper Submission:            March _17_, 2008
    * Notification of Acceptance:  April 21, 2008
    * Camera Ready Paper Due:      May 26, 2008
