CoreGRID Workshop on Grid Middleware 2007

Workshop in conjunction with ISC'07 conference

CoreGRID Workshop on

Grid Middleware

Dresden, June 25-26, 2007

Important Registration Information

The registration for CoreGRID workshop is valid until June 11thregistration (link) .

The Grid middleware workshop is organized by the CoreGRID Network of Excellence in conjunction with the International Supercomputing Conference 2007 in Dresden. CoreGRID is the European Research Network for strengthening and advancing scientific and technological excellence in the area of Grid and Peer-to-Peer technologies.

This workshop focuses on the following major topics:

  • Knowledge and Data Management on Grids
  • Grid Resource Management and Scheduling
  • Grid Information, Resource and Workflow Monitoring Services.
This workshop provides a bridge between the application community and the developers
of middleware services, especially in terms of parallel computing.

The goals of this workshop are:
  • to gather current state of the art and new approaches in the areas mentioned above.
  • to include work-in-progress contributions, e.g. as short papers.
  • to provide a forum for exchanging the ideas between the users' community and Grid middleware developers.
  • to disseminate existing results and provide input to the CoreGRID Network of Excellence.
Suggested topics for papers and posters include, but are not limited to, the following specific subjects:
  • distributed data storage on Grids
  • information and knowledge management in Grids
  • distributed data mining and knowledge discovery
  • monitoring and information systems
  • fault tolerance, reliability and sustainability
  • application and kernel level checkpointing
  • accounting and user account management in and across Virtual Organisations
  • workflow frameworks
  • Grid scheduling architectures
  • multi-level scheduling strategies
  • evaluation and benchmarking of Grid scheduling systems
  • scheduling of high performance parallel applications
  • performance prediction.


The workshop takes place at the International Conference Center in Dresden,

in Conference room 6, Level 4.
