CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
(see advance program below)

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 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.  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.
