4th Workshop on Large Scale Computations on Grids (LaSCoG'08)
Wisla, Poland, October 20-22, 2008

Organized within the framework of the International Multiconference on 
Computer Science and Information Systems and co-located with the XXIV Autumn 
Meeting of the Polish Information Processing Society.

Large Scale Computations on Grids (LaSCoG) Workshop will be organized within 
the framework of the International Multiconference on Computer Science and 
Information Technology and co-located with the XXIV Autumn Meeting of the 
Polish Information Processing Society.

The emerging paradigm for execution of large-scale computations, whether they 
originate as scientific or engineering applications, or for supporting large 
data-intensive calculations, is to utilize multiple computers at sites 
distributed across the Internet. In particular, computational grids are 
collections of distributed, possibly heterogeneous resources which can be used 
as ensembles to execute large-scale applications. While the vision of the 
global computational grid is extremely appealing, there remains a lot of work 
on all levels to achieve it. In this context the LaSCoG workshop is envisioned 
as a forum to promote exchange of ideas and results aimed at addressing 
complex issues that arise in developing large-scale computations on grids and 
running applications on them.

Covered topics include (but are not limited to) grid-focused aspects of:

- Large-scale algorithms
- Symbolic and numeric computations
- High performance computations for large scale simulations
- Large-scale distributed computations
- Agent-based computing
- Data models for large-scale applications
- Cloud computing
- Security issues for large-scale computations
- Science portals
- Data visualization
- Performance analysis, evaluation and prediction
- Programming models
- Peer-to-peer models and services for scalable grids
- Collaborative science applications
- Business applications
- Data-intensive applications

Papers submission

- Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
- The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). LNCS 
style templates are available at the conference site.
- Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit 
and relevance to the workshop.
- Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings 
and published on a CD (ISSN 1896-7094).
- Extended versions of selected papers will be published in a Special Issue of 
a journal to be announced shortly.
