CALL FOR PAPERS

Workshop on Large-Scale, Volatile Desktop Grids (PCGrid 2007)
held in conjunction with the
IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS)
March 30, 2007
Long Beach, California U.S.A.
http://pcgrid07.lri.fr

Desktop grids utilize the free resources available in Intranet or
Internet environments for supporting large-scale computation and
storage. For over a decade, desktop grids have been one of the largest
and most powerful distributed computing systems in the world, offering
a high return on investment for applications from a wide range of
scientific domains (including computational biology, climate
prediction, and high-energy physics).  While desktop grids sustain up
to Teraflops/second of computing power from hundreds of thousands to
millions of resources, fully leveraging the platform's computational
power is still a major challenge because of the immense scale, high
volatility, and extreme heterogeneity of such systems.

The workshop seeks to bring desktop grid researchers together from
theoretical, system, and application areas to identify plausible
approaches for supporting applications with a range of complexity and
requirements on desktop environments.  Moreover, the purpose of the
workshop is to provide a forum for discussing recent advances and
identifying open issues for the development of scalable,
fault-tolerant, and secure desktop grid systems.

As such, we invite submissions on desktop grid topics including the
following:

- desktop grid middleware and software infrastructure (including
management)
- incorporation of desktop grid systems with Grid infrastructures
- desktop grid programming environments and models
- modeling, simulation, and emulation of large-scale, volatile
environments
- resource management and scheduling
- resource measurement and characterization
- novel desktop grid applications
- data management (strategies, protocols, storage)
- security on desktop grids (reputation systems, result verification)
- fault-tolerance on shared, volatile resources
- peer-to-peer (P2P) algorithms or systems applied to desktop grids

With regard to the last topic, we strongly encourage authors of
P2P-related paper submissions to emphasize the applicability to desktop
grids in order to be within the scope of the workshop.

The workshop proceedings will be published through the IEEE Computer
Society Press as part of the IPDPS CD-ROM.
