The Third Grid Applications and Middleware Workshop
with special emphasis on Scientific Workflows
Grid Applications and Middleware Workshop 2007, Gdańsk, Poland (GAMW'2007)
in conjunction with the
Gdańsk, Poland, September 9-12, 2007

The Applications and Middleware Grid Workshop in Gdańsk, POLAND, is the third workshop in the series with special attention this year on scientific workflows. It seeks to provide a bridge between the application community, developers and directors of grid policies and infrastructures. The Workshop results will provide input to middleware and infrastructure developers.

The goals of this workshop are:
  • To provide a forum for exchanging the ideas between the grid application users, application developers and grid middleware developers
  • To identify the key application requirements and scenarios on the grid
  • To gather/spread the information about tools, toolkits and other mechanisms for grid application users and developers
  • To broaden the grid community by encouraging new users to use the grid technologies.

We are looking for papers from different areas of grid computing, especially those concerned with workflows, collaborative environments on the grid and applications.

Suggested topics for papers and posters include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Workflows, application representations
  • Collaborative Environments on the Grid
  • Grid Application Toolkits and Frameworks
  • Experience in both, converting existing applications and designing new applications to run on the grid
  • Data management
  • Experience on the characteristics of applications or particular application software that make them well suited for the grid, like checkpoint/restart functionality in grids, new challenges in data/information management
  • Application requirements for grid middleware and fabric infrastructures, including networks


Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit full papers (draft version, Postscript or PDF file) to Ewa Deelman, (workshop chair, email: gamw@man.poznan.pl) before April 30, 2007. Regular papers are not to exceed 8 pages (preferably in Springer LNCS format www.springeronline.com). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. The authors will be notified by June 15, 2007.

Papers presented at the GAMW2007 will be included into the proceedings and published after the conference by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

Full camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be required before October 15, 2007. The author's guide for preparing them in LaTeX will be available on the conference's home page.
