 CALL FOR PAPERS
 ***********************
 
OVERVIEW/SCOPE:
 
Desktop grids and volunteer computing systems (DGVCS's)
utilize the free resources available in Intranet or Internet
environments for supporting large-scale computation and
storage. For over a decade, DGVCS's 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 DGVCS's sustain up to PetaFLOPS
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
DGVCS's. 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.
 
This year's workshop will have special emphasis on DGCVS's
relationship and integration with Clouds.
 
We invite submissions on DGVCS topics including the
following:
 
- cloud computing over unreliable enterprise or Internet resources
- DGVCS middleware and software infrastructure (including
management), with emphasis on virtual machines 
- incorporation of DGVCS's with Grid infrastructures
- DGVCS programming environments and models
- modeling, simulation, and emulation of large-scale, volatile
environments
- resource management and scheduling
- resource measurement and characterization
- novel DGVCS applications
- data management (strategies, protocols, storage)
- security on DGVCS's (reputation systems, result verification)
- fault-tolerance on shared, volatile resources
- peer-to-peer (P2P) algorithms or systems applied to DGVCS's
 
With regard to the last topic, we strongly encourage authors
of P2P-related paper submissions to emphasize the
applicability to DGVCS's 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.
