Dear Professionals and research students working in the area of the
Semantic web and/or Grid services technology,

 

We would like to invite you to a special session on "Web Services and
the Semantic Grid (WSSG'2008)", part of the 2008 International
Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation, to be held in 

 

June 3-6th in Nicosia, Cyprus and hosted by the University of Cyprus

 

Deadline for the full paper submission is January 31st 2008.

 

The WSSG session aims to facilitate the discussion and presentation of
research findings concerning the utilisation of semantic technologies to
power web and grid services.  We encourage original contributions from
the core semantic/grid technologies research and corresponding
applications:

 

Semantic Web/Grid Technologies (not restricted to the below)

*   Standards and formalism of web/grid services

*   Ontology-based annotation of web/grid services and information

*   Semantic services brokering: discovery, matchmaking, and composition

*   Semantic web reasoning agents and theory

*   Grid resource management: scalability, load-balancing, and
reliability

*   Security management for web/grid services

*   QoS Measurement and control for web/grid services

*   Interoperation challenges for web/grid applications

*   Knowledge management technologies for Grid services

*   Semantic grid and pervasive computing

 

Semantic Web/Grid Applications (not restricted to the below)

*   Scientific and large scale computing

*   Information indexing and retrieval

*   Distributed data mining

*   Collaborative decision making frameworks (Blackboard systems)

*   Content and caption based image annotation and retrieval

*   Self-enriching WWW encyclopedias

*   Financial and brokering services

*   Travel and tourism applications
