Workshop Overview

With the increasing interest devoted to grid computing and large clusters, large-scale computing is becoming once more a key topic in the system arena. Actually, current technology and needs are pushing the concept of large-scaling much further than ever before and new solutions need to be researched and applied.

The objective of the workshop is to gather people working on large-scale computing. For this reason, we will organize it with a mixture of invited speakers that are leaders (or key participants) of significant projects in the area, traditional research papers, and larger attendant participation (more time for discussion).

We seek high-quality submissions that further the knowledge and understanding of large-scale computing, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. Specific topics of interest (ordered alphabetically) include but are not limited to:
  • Application execution management
  • Application-system interface
  • Ease of use
  • File and storage systems
  • Grid operating systems
  • Heterogeneity Industrial use cases
  • Networking and network services
  • Peer to peer management
  • Reliability, availability, and scalability
  • Security, privacy, and trust
  • System and network management and troubleshooting
  • Virtualization
