Call for papers: Grid Computing

Call for papers: Grid Computing

A special issue of International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems

Service-oriented computing is a popular design methodology for large scale business computing systems. Grid computing enables the sharing of distributed computing and data resources such as processing, networking and storage capacity to create a cohesive resource environment for executing distributed applications in service-oriented computing. Grid computing also represents a more business-oriented orchestration of pretty homogeneous and powerful distributed computing resources to optimise the execution of time consuming process. Grid computing has received a significant and sustained research interest in terms of designing and deploying large scale and high performance computational in e-science and businesses.

This special issue aims to foster state-of-the-art research in the area of grid computing and is expected to focus on all aspects of grid technologies and to present novel results and solutions to solve various problems and challenges in grid platforms. The special issue will additionally select high quality papers from the First International workshop on Grid Computing (GridCom-2009) to be held in Morocco, May 2009

Authors are solicited to contribute to this special issue by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, survey works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the areas which include, but are not limited to:
  • Applications, including e-science and e-business applications
  • Architectures and fabrics
  • Distributed and large-scale data access and management
  • Core grid infrastructure
  • Peer to peer protocols in grid computing
  • Network support for grid computing
  • Monitoring, management and organization tools
  • Networking and security
  • Performance measurement and modelling
  • Metadata, ontology, and provenance
  • Middleware and toolkits for grid computing
  • Computing and programming models
  • Programming tools and environments
  • Distributed problem solving
  • Creation and management of virtual enterprises and organiSations
