Scope and Interests: 

Grid computing research focuses on building a large-scale computing infrastructure by linking computing facilities at many distributed locations. By analogy with the electric power Grids, such systems are known as computational Grids. Significant effort has been spent in the design and implementation of middleware software for enabling computational Grids. These software packages have been successfully deployed and it is now possible to build clusters beyond the boundaries of a single local area network. However, the challenging problem of dynamically allocating resources in response to application requests for computational services remains unsolved. Adaptive middleware is software that resides between the application and the computer operating system and enables an application to adapt to changing availability of computing and networking resources.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an open forum for researchers from hardware and software areas to present, discuss, and exchange research-related ideas, results, and experiences in the area of adaptive middleware for computational Grids. 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to: 

Hardware/software co-designs
Languages, compilers, and libraries
Programming environments
Distributed resource management systems
Self-optimizing software systems
Automatic performance optimization 
Remote steering and visualization
Fault-tolerance and replication designs
Grid-aware clusters
Knowledge based systems
Load balancing and load sharing
Mapping, scheduling and synchronization
Modeling, simulation and evaluation techniques
Adaptive parallel applications

Paper Submission and Publication:


AGridM2004 invites authors to submit papers on original and unpublished work in either PS or PDF format via email at Manuscripts must not exceed 8 pages in camera-ready form (8.5x11 inch pages) and should be written in standard IEEE format for conference proceedings. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register the conference. All submissions will be refereed. Proceedings will be published by a professional publisher(details under negotation).
