3-rd Workshop on Global Computing Models and Technologies

Track description

A Global Computing (GC) system is a worldwide distributed programmable infrastructure. GC distinguishes from traditional distributed
computing in terms of scalability, connectivity, heterogeneity, and
autonomy. In the GC context, important and new issues are given by the
ability of dealing with dynamic and unpredictable changes of their
network environment (e.g. availability of network connectivity, lack
of resources, node failures, network reconfigurations and so on). At
the same time, older problems - such as the expresiveness and
modularity at the level of programming languages become more acute, in
the sense that the new technologies should reach new standards to
allow us to cope with the complexity and diversity that are implied by
the emerging model of the GC. GC research focuses on the study of
systems compatible with the notion of GC. The most prominent example
is that of the Web space. In particular, the growing complexity of the
entire collection of Internet services brings the need for a change in
the view of the Web space as just a database. Thus, it appears the
opportunity to harness the available computational power. In the
emerging GC vision, the Web should become a programmable space.


The aim of GlobalComp 2010 is to bring together researchers interested
on foundational aspects and technologies for GC. We invite the
submission of original scientific work on the following list of topics
which is not exhaustive:

- coordination and orchestration languages
- mobility, computation in networks with dynamic topology
- process algebra and calculi, interactive programming languages
- formal verification in global computing, spatio-temporal logics
- context awareness and security in distributed environment
- service oriented computing and related formalisms
- membrane computing as model of distributed systems


Submission of papers

We invite submissions in the form of:

- research papers (up to 8 pages,  IEEE conference style)

- posters (extended abstracts, work in progress, system
  descriptions and software demonstrations, up to 4 pages).

Both full papers and extended abstracts must be submitted electronically to:

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.


The extended abstracts of the papers accepted for presentation at
GlobalComp 2010 will be collected, together with the other Synasc
papers, as post-proceedings published by Conference Publishing Service (CPS) (ISI Proceedings).

Important dates

Submission of papers: 30 May 2010
Notification of acceptance: 15 August 2010
Camera ready version: 08 September 2010
Revised papers for post-proceedings: 30 November 2010
