The Grid middleware workshop is organized by the CoreGRID Network of Excellence (/) in parallel with the OGF23 event in Barcelona ( 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 is the 3rd edition of the workshop, where we will summarize the 4 years co-operation within the mentioned above areas. The first workshop was organized in conjunction with EuroPar2005 (August 2006), the second one in conjunction with ISC 2007 (June 2007).This workshop aims to 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 collect requirements towards the middleware from application's perspective
•    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 services
•    semantic Grid models and services
•    monitoring and information systems
•    fault tolerance, reliability and sustainability
•    application and kernel level checkpointing
•    accounting and user account management in and across Virtual Organizations
•    workflow frameworks
•    Grid scheduling architectures
•    multi-level scheduling strategies
•    evaluation and benchmarking of Grid scheduling systems
•    scheduling of high performance parallel applications
•    performance prediction
•    application requirements towards middleware services.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the principal author (contact person), and must be between 4 and 15 pages in length, including tables and figures, with PDF or PostScript. In particular, short papers of around 4 pages are encouraged for work-in-progress contributions.

Please make your electronic submission to the following address:

Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference workshop to present the paper or the poster. Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop topics.  Authors will be notified by April 30th, 2008


The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the dedicated CoreGRID series
of Springer (
