Call for Papers

CCGrid 2008 is the eigth in a series of successful international symposia and for the first time will take place in France, in Lyon. Grid Computing started as a generalization of Cluster Computing, promising to deliver large scale levels of parallelism to high-performance applications by crossing administrative boundaries. Moreover, the use of computational and data resources in high-performance applications, undertaken over Grid infrastructure, have started to now become a reality. Today we face the huge challenge of making on-demand access to any computational service.


CCGrid 2008 provides researchers and practitioners with an excellent opportunity to share their research and experience at the cross-roads of Cluster and Grid Technology. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Grid Architectures and Systems
  • Clusters technologies
  • Grid Economies and Service Architectures
  • Service Composition and Orchestration
  • Middleware for Clusters and Grids
  • Scheduling and Load Balancing
  • Parallel and Wide-Area File Systems
  • Peer-to-Peer Systems
  • Utility Computing Models for Clusters and Grids
  • Community and collaborative computing networks
  • Support for Self-Managing/Self-Configuring Grid Infrastructure
  • Grid Operating Systems
  • Resource Management
  • Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
  • Grid-based Problem Solving Environments
  • Performance Evaluation and Modeling
  • Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Applications
  • Grid Trust and Security

Authors are invited to submit original papers of 8 pages maximum. Papers should be double column text and follow the IEEE manuscript guidelines provided on the submission page (on-line submission). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
