Call For Papers

The Fourth Workshop on Desktop Grids and Volunteer Computing Systems
(PCGrid 2010)

Supported by:
The CoreGrid/ERCIM European Research Group on Desktop Grid and
Volunteer Computing System

held in conjunction with
The 10th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid
Computing (CCGrid 2010)
May 17-20, 2010, Melbourne, Australia




Desktop grids and volunteer computing systems (DGVCS's) utilize the free
resources available in Intranet or Internet environments for supporting
large-scale computation and storage. For over a decade, DGVCS's have been
one of the largest and most powerful distributed computing systems in the
world, offering a high return on investment for applications from a wide
range of scientific domains (including computational biology, climate
prediction, and high-energy physics). While DGVCS's sustain up to PetaFLOPS
of computing power from hundreds of thousands to millions of resources,
fully leveraging the platform's computational power is still a major
challenge because of the immense scale, high volatility, and extreme
heterogeneity of such systems.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussing recent
advances and identifying open issues for the development of scalable,
fault-tolerant, and secure DGVCS's. The workshop seeks to bring desktop
grid researchers together from theoretical, system, and application areas
to identify plausible approaches for supporting applications with a range
of complexity and requirements on desktop environments.

* This year's workshop will have special emphasis on the interaction of
clouds and desktop grids.

As such, we invite submissions on DGVCS topics including the following:

* Cloud computing over unreliable enterprise or Internet resources
* DGVCS middleware and software infrastructure (including management),
with emphasis on virtual machines
* incorporation of DGVCS's with Grid and Cloud infrastructures
* DGVCS programming environments and models
* modeling, simulation, and emulation of large-scale, volatile environments
* resource management and scheduling
* resource measurement and characterization
* novel DGVCS applications
* data management (strategies, protocols, storage)
* security on DGVCS's (reputation systems, result verification)
* multi-core DGVCS's
* fault-tolerance on shared, volatile resources
* peer-to-peer (P2P) algorithms or systems applied to DGVCS's

With regard to the last topic, we strongly encourage authors of P2P-related
paper submissions to emphasize the applicability to DGVCS's in order to be
within the scope of the workshop.

Manuscript submission deadline: November 30, 2009
Acceptance Notification: December 30, 2009
Camera-ready paper deadline: January 25, 2010


Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted
manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed
6 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references
using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2
inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column
format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81
cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified
text). Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and
make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size
(8.5 x 11) paper.
All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation,
and interest and relevance to the workshop attendees.
Publication of the proceedings will be by the IEEE Computer Society Press,
USA in the same volume as the main conference.

Selected papers will be invited to a special section of
Elsevier Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS) Journal.
