Scope and Topics

Extended Paper Submission Deadline:Jan 10, 2009 (+2.00 GMT)

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 represents more business-oriented
orchestration of pretty homogeneous and powerful distributed computing
resources to optimize the execution of time consuming process as well.
Grid computing have received a significant and sustained research interest
in terms of designing and deploying large scale and high performance
computational in e-Science and businesses. 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
