Symbolic Grid Computing Workshop

in conjunction with


6th International Symposium on 
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing 
Timisoara, Romania 
September 26 - 30, 2004 

Workshop description

Grid Computing is emerging as a next-generation parallel and distributed computing platform driven by the Internet, Web services technologies, and service-oriented computing architectures. The research area of grid computing is making rapid progress, owing to the increasing necessity of computation in the resolution of complex applications. In this category falls also several symbolic computing applications.

The Symbolic Grid Computing Workshop seeks to provide a bridge between the symbolic computing community and the developers of grid applications.

 The workshop goal is to bring together researchers, developers, practitioners, and users,
        to assess the current state-of-the-art
        to identify major needs and opportunities
        to identify the key application requirements and scenarios on the grid
        to exchange ideas and chart future directions
        to gather/spread the information about tools, toolkits and other mechanisms for symbolic
          computing on grids
        to broaden the symbolic grid computing community by encouraging new users to use the grid
          technologies and computer algebra systems

The workshop is seeking papers from different areas of grid and symbolic computing, especially those concerned with symbolic computing on the grid.

         Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:

              Symbolic computing application requirements towards grids
              High-performance computing in symbolic computing applications
              Grid solutions for computation-intensive applications
              Accessing external services from CAS, network enabled servers
              Converting existing applications and designing new applications to run on the grid
              Internet-based computing models and computing services
              Collaboration technologies
              Simulations in grid environments
              Grid application toolkits
              Security in computational grids
              Grid-based data mining
              Extracting knowledge from computational grids
              Performance evaluation and modeling
              Virtual scientific experiments and labs
              Metadata infrastructures for grid computing
              Task ontologies and service composition languages
              Agent-architectures for grid environments or based on grid computing technologies

Submission of papers

        Papers of up to 12 pages must be submitted electronically in Latex format (download the LaTeX style) to Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. Papers accepted for presentation will be published in the SYNASC'04 proceedings (with ISBN) which will be available during the workshop.
