3rd International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing 
               October 21-24 2004, Wuhan, China

The Third International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing
(GCC 2004) will be held from Oct. 21 to 24, 2004 in Wuhan. It will serve
as a forum to present current work by researchers in the grid computing
and cooperative computing area. GCC 2004 is the follow-up of the highly
successful GCC 2003 in Shanghai, China, and GCC 2002 in Sanya, China.
Wuhan is rich in culture and history. Its civilization began about 3,500
years ago, and is of great importance in Chinese culture, economy and
politics. It shares the same culture of Chu, formed since the ancient
Kingdom of Chu more than 2,000 years ago. Numerous natural and
artificial attractions and scenic spots are scattered around. Famous
scenic spots in Wuhan include Yellow Crane Tower, Guiyuan Temple, East
Lake, and Hubei Provincial Museum with the famous chimes playing the
music of different styles.
GCC 2004 will emphasize the design and analysis of grid computing and
cooperative computing and their scientific, engineering, and commercial
applications. In addition to technical sessions of contributed paper
presentations, the conference will have several workshops, a poster
session, tutorials, and vendor exhibitions.
GCC 2004 invites the submission of papers in grid computing, Web
services and cooperative computing, including theory and applications.
The conference is soliciting only original high quality research papers
on all above aspects.
The main topics of interest include, but not limited to: 

        -Resource Grid and Service Grid
        - Information Grid and Knowledge Grid
        - Grid Monitoring, Management and Organization Tools
        - Grid Portal
        - Grid Service, Web Service and their QoS
        - Service Orchestration
        - Grid Middleware and Toolkits
        - Grid Security
        - Innovative Grid Applications
        - Advanced Resource Reservation and Scheduling
        - Performance Evaluation and Modeling
        - Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
        - P2P Computing, automatic computing and so on
        - Meta-information Management
        - Software glue Technologies


Paper submissions must present original, unpublished research or
experiences. Late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from
ongoing research are also encouraged to be submitted to GCC 2004.
All papers submitted to this conference will be peer-reviewed and
accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the
conference topics. Accepted papers will be published as conference
proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) Series (Pending).
It is also planned that a selection of papers from GCC 2004 proceedings
will be extended and published in international journals.

Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the
main conference. Interested individuals should submit a proposal by
March 1, 2004 to the Workshop Chair.

Proposals are solicited for tutorials to be held at the conference.
Interested individuals should submit a proposal by May 30,2004. The
proposal should include a brief description of the intended audience, a
lecture outline, and a vita for each lecturer.

Companies and R&D laboratories are encouraged to present their exhibits
at the conference. In addition, a full day of vendor presentations is
