Grid computing enables the sharing of distributed computing and data resources such as processing, network bandwidth and storage capacity to create a cohesive resource environment for executing distributed applications. The Grid conference series is an annual international meeting that brings together a community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and user involved with Grid technology. The objective of the meeting is to serve as both the premier venue for presenting foremost research results in the area and as a forum for introducing and exploring new concepts. The conference will feature invited talks, workshops, and refereed paper presentations. Previous events in this series have been successful in attracting high quality papers and a wide international participation. This ninth event will be co-located with the Cluster 2008 conference.

Grid 2008 topics of interest (in no particular order) include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications, including eScience and eBusiness Applications
  • Architectures and Fabrics
  • Autonomic and Utility Computing on Global Grids
  • Cluster and Grid Integration
  • Creation and Management of Virtual Enterprises and Organizations
  • Distributed and Large-Scale Data Access and Management
  • Grid Economy and Business Models
  • Information Services
  • Metadata, Ontologies, and Provenance
  • Middleware and Toolkits
  • Monitoring, Management and Organization Tools
  • Networking and Security
  • Performance Measurement and Modeling
  • Problem Solving Environments
  • Programming Models, Tools and Environments
  • QoS and SLA Negotiation
  • Resource Management, Scheduling, and Runtime Environments
  • Scientific, Industrial and Social Implications


Grid 2008 invites authors to submit original papers. Papers should be no more than 8 pages in length and be submitted as a PDF file. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. A separate conference proceedings will be published and will also be a part of the IEEE Xplore and the CS digital library.
