The 4th International Workshop on

Web Services and Grid Computing (WSGC 2006)

May 23, 2006 – Paphos, Cyprus

 Call for Papers 


In conjunction with the Eighth International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2006 (http://www.iceis.org/)

Workshop Background and Goals
Technologies such as eXtensible Markup Language (XML), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Web Services Description Language (WSDL), Universal Description, Discovery and Integration (UDDI), Business Process Execution Language support Web Services (WC3). These standards are backed by the major players in the industries such as IBM, Microsoft, BEA, Sun and Oracle.

Grid computing is an emerging technology in engineering, science and other areas of research. Grid can be viewed as layers of computing (applications, scheduling, mapping etc ), information (services related to fast, reliable, secure, scalable, heterogeneity etc) and knowledge (security, personalization, consistency, performance etc). Current research on Grid is focusing on integration of Web services on Grid infrastructure.

However, only the set of technologies is not sufficient to develop real applications based on the Grid and Web. Development of real-life applications relies heavily on the system model and architectures through which this set of technologies are efficiently implemented. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in Web Services and Grid to discuss how to develop real applications.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
· Modeling, Service Oriented Architecture, Discovery, Workflow, Ontology
· The Model Driven Architecture (MDA), Frameworks for Building Applications
· Composite Service Creation, Enabling Infrastructures
· Solution and Resource Management for Web Services, Grid
· Dynamic Invocation Mechanisms
· Quality of Service, Security
· SOAP, UDDI Enhancements, BPEL etc
· Applications
· Transaction, Interoperability
· Scheduling, Mapping
· Computing infrastructure

Format of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of oral presentations. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book by INSTICC Press.

Submission of Papers
Perspective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the areas listed above. All papers must be written in English, and the length of the paper should not exceed 4000 words or 8 pages. Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word or Latex) are available at the ICEIS web site. Postscript/RTF versions of the manuscript should be submitted thru ICEIS web-based paper submission procedure.
