Notification of Acceptance: Thursday 20 March 2003
Camera Ready Paper Due: Sunday 20 April 2003
Much of the focus of the Grid to date has been within research organizations. As the power of grid technologies becomes apparent, however, commercial parties are also increasing their level of participation. That leads to a greater focus on integration with commercial computing models and more work on the security and resource management models required for automated and secure access negotiation for remote resources. In order to control such a broad base of resources, Grid Computing has a Middleware layer which controls the distributed execution of applications.
Objective: This workshop focuses on Grid Systems from a middleware perspective, bringing together the different middleware traditions, as the classic Grid Middleware research, the Object-Oriented or Component Middleware, and the Service-Oriented Middleware (Open Grid Service Architecture / Web services).
