The Second International Workshop on Grid Computing and its
Application to Data Analysis (GADA'05)

In conjunction with OnTheMove Federated Conferences (OTM'05)

Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag
Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 31 Oct - 4 Nov 2005

Grid computing has become one of the most important topics appeared and
widely developed in the computing field in the last decade. The research
area of grid computing is making rapid progress, owing to the increasing
necessity of computation in the resolution of complex applications.

Clusters are, in some sense, the predecessors of the grid technology.
Clusters interconnect nodes through a local high-speed network, using
commodity hardware, with the aim of reducing the costs of such
infrastructures. Supercomputers have been replaced by cluster of
workstations in a huge number of research projects, being the grid
technology the natural evolution of clusters.

One of the major goals of grid computing is to provide efficient access
to data. Grids provide access to distributed computing and data
resources, allowing data-intensive applications to improve significantly
data access, management and analysis. Nowadays, there is a huge number
of data-intensive applications, e.g. data mining systems extracting
knowledge from large volumes of data. Existing data-intensive
applications have been used in several domains, such as physics, climate
modelling, biology or visualization. Grid systems responsible for
tackling and managing large amounts of data in geographically
distributed environments are usually named data grids.

The great challenge of grid computing is the complete integration of
heterogeneous computing systems and data resources with the aim of
providing a global computing space. The achievement of this goal will
involve revolutionary changes in the field
of computation, because it will enable resource-sharing across networks,
being data
one of the most important ones.

This workshop is intended for researchers in grid computing, who want to
extend their
background on this area and more specifically to those that use grid
environments for managing and analysing data.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * Computational grids
  * Data integration on grids
  * Grid-based data mining
  * Grid solutions for data-intensive applications
  * Grid infrastructures for data analysis
  * High-performance computing for data-intensive applications
  * Grid computing infrastructures, middleware and tools
  * Grid computing services
  * Grid and cluster computing
  * Collaboration technologies
  * Data analysis and management
  * Databases and the grid
  * Extracting knowledge from data grids
  * Agent-based management of data in distributed systems
  * Agent architectures for grid environments
  * Semantic Grid
  * Data grids for bioinformatics
  * Security in data grids


All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All
submissions must be in English. Submissions should be in PDF format and
must not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format. Authors
instructions can be found at:
