                            Second Workshop on

        Emerging Technologies for Next generation GRID (ETNGRID-2005)

         14th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies:
         Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2005)


                Linkoping University, Sweden, June 13-15, 2005

                ***** SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Feb. 11, 2005 *****


The Grid  was originally  designed as a  large network of  computer
systems able  to offer  an environment  where computing  and storage
resources are shared on-demand.

To  date, the  development  of standards,  such  as the  Open Grid
Service Architecture (OGSA), along with the  introduction of new
paradigms, such as the Semantic  Grid, is leading the  Grid toward an
environment  that is not only  suited   for  computational-intensive
applications,   but  also  for computing  scenarios  typical  of
distributed systems,  like  service  and information providing,
multimedia environments, ubiquitous computing, etc.

For  these and  other  reasons, the  Grid  is becoming  an interesting
and challenging  environment   supporting  both   old  and  new
services  for cooperative  applications. A relevant  research effort  is
thus  needed not only to  investigate innovative Grid  infrastructures
but also to  make the current Grid model suitable for these emerging
usage scenarios.

The  objective  of  this  workshop  is to  gather  researchers  working
  on different   emerging  Grid   computing  aspects   relevant   to
enterprise collaboration,  covering  issues  ranging  from  the
middleware  layer  to application  development and user  interaction.
The  goals of  the workshop include  (but are not  limited to)
discovering new  application scenarios, proposing   new  programming
abstractions   and  tools,   identifying  the challenging problem that
still need to be solved, and reporting results and experiences  gained
by  researchers  in  building  Grid-based  middleware, applications and

Submission Requirements

Participants  are  expected to  submit  an  original  research paper,
not  submitted or published elsewhere, by  email to Corrado Santoro,  (make sure  that the subject of the
email says "ETNGRID'05 Submission"). Submission should include the title
of the paper, the  names and affiliations of the  authors, a 150-word
abstract and  at most  eight  keywords.  Submission should  follow  the
IEEE  format (single spaced,  two columns,  10pt, Times font)  and not
exceed six pages, including figures. Accepted papers will  be published
along with the WETICE 2005 post-proceedings. The paper should be in
either PS or PDF format.

Papers must focus on various aspects of the Grid, including, but not
limiting to, the following topics:

     * Middlewares for the Grid

     * Multimedia applications with the Grid

     * Reflective and Aspect-Oriented Grid systems

     * Reliability and Quality-of-Service aspects

     * Wireless and ubiquitous access to the Grid

     * Cooperative Agents and the Grid

     * Grids and Peer-to-peer systems

     * Web integration with the Grid

     * Abstractions and tools for collaborative application development
       in Grid environments

     * Semantic Grid

     * Experience reports on collaborative application development in

     * Scalability and Performance issues in the Grid

     * Analysis of stability and bottlenecks for Grid applications

     * Resource-aware applications in the Grid
