Third High-Performance Grid Computing Workshop

April 29, 2006 in Rhodes Island, Greece. 

in conjunction with

International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium - IPDPS'2006
April 25-29, 2006, Rhodes Island, Greece



Grids are becoming ubiquitous, and are now incorporating a wireless dimension. Grids provide enormous computational potential for science, engineering, medicine, finance, and entertainment. The High Performance Grid Computing workshop provides a forum for presenting research results on most aspects of grid computing, with a focus on performance, in the following areas: Applications, Benchmarking, Infrastructure, Management and Scheduling, Partitioning and Load Balancing, and Programming Models.

  • Applications: Theory and practice of composing grid applications consisting of multiple interacting tasks.
  • Benchmarking: Grid measurement technology for evaluating performance of grid hardware and middleware; benchmark results.
  • Infrastructure: Implementation and evaluation of computational grid middleware.
  • Management and Scheduling: Management, monitoring, resource allocation, scheduling, and metascheduling.
  • Partitioning and Load Balancing: Partitioning applications for computational grids for achieving high performance, and load balancing of grid applications.
  • Programming Models: Methods for remote execution and intertask communications.

Paper Submission

We invite submissions not exceeding eight single-spaced pages. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference, or journal. Each paper will be refereed by at least three independent
reviewers. Paper submission indicates the intention of the author to present the paper at the HPGC workshop at IPDPS 2006. Send your manuscript to by November 18, 2005. There will be NO extension of this deadline. Authors will be notified by December 20, 2005.

The HPGC workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society along with the IPDPS conference proceedings. 

Submission of accepted papers: See instructions at the IPDPS author resources page and use the author kit for submission. When submitting, select HPGC, and use the three digit paper number assigned to you. Deadline has been extended to February 1, 2006.
