Call for papers -- GSEM2007

The 4th International Conference on 
Grid Services Engineering and Management - GSEM 2007
University of Leipzig, Germany, 24 - 26 September 2007

The submission deadline is June 15, 2007.

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 applica-tion 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 Service-Oriented Computing,
Agent Technology, Semantic Web, Grid Computing, Software Engineering, and
Business Process Technology.

The GSEM 2007 conference aims at presenting and discussing the impact of the
latest theoretical and practical results from the above-mentioned
technological and research areas on the engineering and management of Grid
services and service-oriented applica-tions. The conference provides a
platform for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse
fields and interests, and those looking for new business and research
coop-eration opportunities in the above areas. Building on the three
successful predecessors in 2004, 2005, and 2006, GSEM 2007 takes place from
September 24 to 26, 2007 in Leipzig in the context of SABRE 2007.

The topics of the conference include all areas related to grid service
engineering and management, including but not limited to:
* Modelling, description and discovery of services on the Grid
* Deployment, packaging, and distribution of Grid services
* Grid service architectures, infrastructures and deployment environments
* Software engineering for Grid service creation, development, and
* Service provisioning and Quality of Service for Grid services
* Workflow planning and composition for Grid services
* Service level agreement negotiation and contracting
* Adaptive management, coordination, monitoring and control of Grid services
and applications
* Formation and management of virtual organizations
* Intelligent services and Grid service agents
* Security, performance and reliability engineering in service Grids
* Testing and benchmarking of grid services
* Grid service business models and applications
* Standardization aspects

We invite original research papers, work-in-progress reports, and industrial
experiences describing advances in the above areas that have not been
published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences in parallel
with this conference. Full papers must not exceed 15 pages and follow the
author instructions of Springer-Verlag. All papers should be in PDF or
PostScript format. The paper should have a cover page, which in-cludes a
200-word abstract, a list of keywords, and author's e-mail address. Authors
should submit a full paper via electronic submission available on the
conference Web site. All papers submitted for GSEM'07 will be peer-reviewed
and similarly to the previous years, accepted papers are planned to be
published in a special proceedings by Springer Verlag. A selection of high
quality papers will be invited to submit extended and en-hanced versions of
their papers to the upcoming special issue of a major international journal.
