Seventh High-Performance Grid Computing Workshop

April 19, 2010, Atlanta, USA

in conjunction with

International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium - IPDPS 2010
April 19-23, 2010, Atlanta, USA



The seventh workshop will be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2010 in Atlanta. It will give a forum to researchers and engineers to present their results in grid and distributed computing. Special areas of interest will be grid middleware, grid applications, grid benchmarking, data distribution and replication on the grid, fault tolerance and efficiency of grid applications, novel models of grid computing, including cloud and mobile computing.

  • Applications: Theory and practice of grid computing. Solution of large problems on  grids.
  • Benchmarking: Evaluating performance of grid hardware and middleware. Grid benchmarking.
  • Infrastructure: Implementation and evaluation of grid middleware.
  • Data Grids: Use of grids for analysis of large data sets.
  • Management and Monitoring: Account management, resource monitoring
  • Scheduling: Resource allocation, application scheduling and containerization.
  • Networking: QoS for grid applications. 
  • Partitioning and Load Balancing: Mapping data and applications on computational grids.
  • Programming Models: Methods for remote execution and intertask communications, including message passing and RPC.

Paper Submission

We invite submissions not exceeding eight single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns). 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 2010.

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