The objective of the e-science Workshop is to address the issues related to development of e-science infrastructure, Grid Middleware , Scientific Application and other related issues.


More generally e-Science refers to the development of the next generation infrastructure to support computationally based science. This involves the effective utilization of distributed computing, storage and networking resources owned by different organizations but used by individuals both within and outside these organizations. These resources are collectively referred to as a Computational Grid. e-Science envisages that large scale science will be increasingly carried out in distributed global collaborations enabled by the Internet. A feature of these collaborations is that they will require efficient access to very large data collections and very large scale computing resources and will use distributed visualization to support a high-level of user access.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to :


Grid Computing

Grid Middleware Architecture

Grid Security

Grid Monitoring, Management and Organization

Grid Resource Management and Scheduling 

Grid Programming Models, tools and Environments

Scientific and Engineering Application 

Grid I/O

Performance Evaluation and Modeling 

Remote data management

Grid Economy 

Access Grid 

Future infrastructure for e-science



Papers will be published in a joint HiPC workshop proceeding by Phoenix Publishers. Journal-length versions of the workshop papers will appear in a special issue of  an International Journal on e-science.
