Aims and Scope

back to top

The Grid has emerged as a global platform to support on-demand virtual organizations for coordinated sharing of distributed data, applications and processes. Service-orientation of the Grid also makes it a promising platform for seamless and dynamic development, integration and deployment of service-oriented applications. The application components can be discovered, composed and delivered within a Grid of services, which are loosely coupled to create dynamic business processes and agile applications spanning organizations and computing platforms. The technologies contributing to such Grids of services include Service-Oriented Computing, Agent Technology, Semantic Web, Grid Computing, Software Engineering, and Business Process Technology.

The GSEM 2007 conference aims at presenting and discussing the impact of the latest theoretical and practical results from the above-mentioned technological and research areas on the engineering and management of Grid services and service-oriented applications.

GSEM Topics

The conference provides a platform for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields and interests, and those looking for new business and research cooperation opportunities in the above areas. Building on the three successful predecessors in 2004, 2005, and 2006, GSEM 2007 takes place on September 25, 2007 in Leipzig in the context of SABRE 2007.

SABRE (Software Agents and Services for Business, Research, and E-Sciences) is the umbrella for a set of conferences – including CEEMAS (International Central and Eastern European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems); GSEM (International Conference on Grid Service Engineering and Management); MAGS*BIOMED 2007 (International Workshop on Multi-Agent and Grid Systems for Medicine, Computational Biology, and Bioinformatics); POSE (Process-Oriented Software Engineering); and SOAS (International Conference on Self-Organization and Adaptation of Multi-Agent and Grid Systems) – providing ample coverage of agent technologies; autonomic computing; self-*; and process modelling, as well as the intersections of these research areas.


Suggested Topics

Submission Guidelines

back to top

We invite original research papers, work-in-progress reports and industrial experiences describing advances in the above areas, that have not been published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences in parallel with this conference. Full papers must not exceed 15 pages and follow the author instructions of Springer-Verlag that can be found at Information for LNCS Authors > Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes and select the software package of your choice. All papers must be in Adobe portable document format (PDF). The paper should have a cover page, which includes a 200-word abstract, a list of keywords, and author's e-mail address. Authors should submit a full paper via electronic submission. All papers submitted for GSEM 2007 will be peer-reviewed and similarly to the previous years, accepted papers are planned to be published in a special proceedings by Springer Verlag subject to the quality of volume requirements. A selection of high quality papers will be invited to submit extended and enhanced versions of their papers to a special issue of a major international journal.
