      Fourth International Scientific Workshop on

      GLOBAL and PEER-TO-PEER Computing
      "From Theory to Practice"


      organized at the IEEE/ACM International Symposium
      on Cluster Computing and the Grid 2004
      IEEE/ACM CCGRID 2004

      Chicago, USA, April 2004

      In cooperation with the IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC)


      Global computing systems aim to harness Internet-connected resources at a
      global scale. A global computing platform can be built in a pre-defined,
      stable, organized fashion (more like today's Grids) or can be
      self-organizing, ad-hoc, decentralized, like in Peer-to-Peer systems.

      Supporting computation on such systems raises a novel set of questions.
      Because of size, autonomy and the high volatility of their resources, Global
      Computing and P2P platforms provide the opportunity to revisit major fields
      of distributed computing: protocols, infrastructures, security, fault
      tolerance, scheduling, performance, services, applications, incentives for
      cooperation, etc. Moreover, new issues concerning installation, utilization,
      flexibility and scalability become more relevant than ever.

      Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished work describing current
      research and novel ideas in the area of Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing as
      well as experiences with the deployment of Global and Peer-to-Peer Computing
      technologies. Papers whose contributions are supported by experimental or
      theoretical evaluations are strongly encouraged.


      Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

      * Global Computing and Peer-to-Peer platforms
      * P2P Merging / Interoperability with Grids (OGSA/I)
      * Software technology evaluations: Web Services, Grid services
      * Middleware, programming models, environments and toolkits
      * Protocols for resource management (discovery, reservation, scheduling,
      * Economic considerations of resource usage (protocols, accounting)
      * Storage in Global Computing infrastructures (strategies, protocols)
      * Performance measurements, benchmarking, and modeling of Global Computing
      and Peer-to-Peer systems
      * Security
      * Result certification (detection/tolerance of corrupted results)
      * Parallel computing on large-scale distributed systems
      * Compute & I/O driven applications
      * Global and peer-to-peer computing applications (programmed from scratch,
      ported from sequential or parallel implementations, adaptations to fit a
      global computing environment)


      We invite you to submit a full paper of up to 8 pages in IEEE format (10pt
      font, two-columns, single-spaced). Please visit the workshop web page at
      http://GP2PC.lri.fr for paper submission procedure.
