                          1st Workshop on
            Semantics in Peer-to-Peer and Grid Computing
                               at the
          Twelfth International World Wide Web Conference
                   20 May 2003, Budapest, Hungary
                      in cooperation with the
             GGF Semantic Grid Research Group (SEM-GRD)
         Workshop URL: http://www.isi.edu/~stefan/SemPGRID
         Registration at: http://www.www2003.org/registration.html

Topics and Content
The  Semantic Web is widely accepted as a means to enhance the Web
with machine processable content. However, mostly the Semantic Web
is  aiming  at techniques and technologies for static information,
in  contrast to dynamic services or distributed computing. Several
interest  groups  and  efforts  are  working on infrastructure for
enabling  distributed computing. The organization of these efforts
are  in part top down organized efforts, involving multiple formal
organizations  and  dedicated  projects,  and  bottom-up  efforts,
sometimes  started  by  single  organizations  or individuals in a
grassroots effort.

The  Grid  is  aiming  at  technologies  which allow the flexible,
secure,  coordinated resource sharing among dynamic collections of
individuals,   institutions,   and   resources,  enabling  virtual
organizations.   Problems   encountered   include  authentication,
authorization,    resource   access,   resource   discovery,   and
interoperation  of  active services. The same problems are eminent
in  the  Peer-to-Peer  (P2P)  area,  where  projects are typically
organized  in  a  bottom-up fashion. Reusable infrastructures like
SUN's   JXTA   are  emerging,  attracting  numerous  applications.
However, each application uses its own data format, and it is hard
to see how applications interoperate.

A  related  area  is  Web  Services:  driven  by  industry efforts
numerous  specifications  are developed, which are of interest for
the  Grid  projects  as  well  as  for  the  Peer-to-Peer efforts.
Although  there  is  an  agreement that Web Services would benefit
from  more  semantics, little systematic research has been done on
the problem of how to combine the notions of Web Services with the
results  of  the  Semantic  Web,  Peer-to-Peer and Grid computing.

The  workshop  will  be  organized around talks presenting
research  results in the intersection of the Semantic Web, P2P and
Grid  computing and discussions.
