                              Seventh Workshop on

        Emerging Technologies for Next generation GRID (ETNGRID-2010)

         19th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies:
         Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2010)


               June 28 - June 30, 2010, TEI of Larissa (Greece)


The Grid  was originally  designed as a  large network of  computer  
able  to offer  an environment  where computing  and storage   
resources are
shared on-demand.

To  date, the  development  of standards,  such  as the  Open Grid   
Architecture (OGSA), along with the  introduction of new paradigms,  
such as
the Semantic  Grid, is leading the  Grid toward an environment  that  
is not
only  suited   for  computational-intensive  applications,   but   
also  for
computing  scenarios  typical  of  distributed systems,  like   
service  and
information providing, multimedia environments, ubiquitous computing,  

For  these and  other  reasons, the  Grid  is becoming  an  
interesting  and
challenging  environment   supporting  both   old  and  new    
services  for
cooperative  applications. A relevant  research effort  is thus   
needed not
only to  investigate innovative Grid  infrastructures but also to   
make the
current Grid model suitable for these emerging usage scenarios.

The  objective  of  this  workshop  is to  gather  researchers   
working  on
different   emerging  Grid   computing  aspects   relevant   to   
collaboration,  covering  issues  ranging  from  the  middleware   
layer  to
application  development and user  interaction. The  goals of  the  
include  (but are not  limited to)  discovering new  application  
proposing   new  programming  abstractions   and  tools,    
identifying  the
challenging problem that still need to be solved, and reporting  
results and
experiences  gained  by  researchers  in  building  Grid-based   
applications and alike.

Submission Requirements

Participants  are  expected to  submit  an  original  research paper   
or  a
position  paper,  not  submitted   or  published  elsewhere,  by   
email  to
<etngrid at diit.unict.it>  or  by  EasyChair   web  submission form  
at  http://etngrid.diit.unict.it/2010/submission.html).   Submission   
include the title of the paper, the names and affiliations of the   
a 150-word abstract and at most eight keywords.  Submission  should   
the  IEEE  format  (single  spaced,  two columns, 10pt, Times font)  
and not
exceed six pages, including figures. Accepted papers will be published  
with  the  WETICE 2010  proceedings (IEEE - pending approval).  The    
should be in either PS or PDF format.

Papers must focus on collaborative  aspects of the Grid, including,  
but not
limiting to, the following topics:

     * Middlewares for the Grid

     * Grids and Peer-to-peer systems

     * Web integration with the Grid

     * Peer-to-peer and self-organizing approaches for the Grid

     * Abstractions and tools for collaborative application  
development in
       Grid environments
