The CCGrid Series

Grid Computing started as a generalization of Cluster Computing, promising to deliver unprecedent levels of parallelism to high-performance applications by crossing administrative boundaries. Subsequently, this vision evolved to support on-demand access and composition of any computational service, provided by multiple independent sources. Under this new vision, Clusters gained renewed importance as the "super-servers" of the emerging Grid infrastructure. Meanwhile, the use of computational and data resources in high-performance applications, undertaken over Grid infrastructure, have started to now become a reality. Today we face the huge challenge of making on-demand access to any computational service, the "computing as service" vision, a wide-spread reality. The CCGrid Symposia have been part of this journey, bringing together researchers and practitioners and enabling them to share their insight, results, and experience in the multi-faceted areas of Grid and Cluster computing.

The areas of interest in CCGrid 2007 include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Grid Economies and Service Architectures • Grid Architectures and Systems
• Utility Computing Models for Clusters and Grids • Middleware for Clusters and Grids
• Programming Models, Tools, and Environments • Resource Management
• Performance Evaluation and Modeling • Peer-to-Peer Systems
• Grid-based Problem Solving Environments • Grid Trust and Security
• Service Composition and Orchestration • Community networks
• Community and collaborative computing networks • Scheduling and Load Balancing
• Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Applications • Parallel and Wide-Area File Systems
• Support for Self-Managing/Self-Configuring Grid Infrastructure  

Selected papers will be invited to a Special Issue of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
