GECON 2006

The 3rd Workshop on Grid Economics & Business Models

http://www.ngp.org.sg/gridasia/2006/gecon.html <http://www.ngp.org.sg/gridasia/2006/gecon.html> 



16 May 2006

Co-located with GridAsia 2006

http://www.ngp.org.sg/gridasia/2006/index.html <http://www.ngp.org.sg/gridasia/2006/index.html> 



Jointly Sponsored by National Grid Singapore & Singapore Management University


Following the success of the first two workshops held in Seoul (Korea),

GECON 2006 invites researchers and practitioners to present and discuss

the Grid Economics and Business Models, with particular emphasis on the

operational and deployment issues.

Grid computing systems utilize the heterogeneous networked resources

(computation, information, database, storage, bandwidth, etc.) through the

Internet. The systems can operate in predefined and organized ways or

form the collected resource systems through self-organizing and

decentralized ways. Even with the various types of abundant resources in

the Internet, the resources that can be organized and operated in the

presence of multiple resource owners with the uncertainty of resource

availability and quality are scarce.

Therefore, managing and operating such scarce resources in the Grid

systems would bring the need of the economy which will value the need

and availability of various types of resources. The creation of stable and

scalable economy will support the successful deployment and operation of

Global Grid systems in the Internet. This Second International Workshop on

Grid Economics and Business Models invites the researchers and

practitioners from multiple disciplines to discuss the economy of these

systems in concern focusing on the operational and deployment issues of

Grid Economy.

The program of GECON 2006 will comprise invited talks, presentations,

and discussions by both the research and industry communities.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• National Computational Grid Systems & related Economy & Policy

• Grid Economy Test-beds & Operation

• Market Managed Operation of the Internet

• Economics of Grid Standardization

• Grid Systems' Economy & its Operation & Deployment

• Pricing, Charging & Accounting Issues of Heterogeneous Resources

• Identity Economics & Anonymity of Distributed Systems

• Suggestion for Grid Commercialization Strategies

• Business Application Development for Grid Service for Grid Service
