International Workshop on
Grid and Peer-to-Peer based Workflows


One day workshop to be held in conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Quality Software, September 19th-20th 2005, Melbourne, Australia

Deadline extended to May 22, 2005.


Call for Papers

Workflow research has been conducted for many years, particularly in the client-server based context. Recently, the research endeavour has started to shift to the grid and peer-to-peer based paradigms. Many e-science and complex e-business applications require the creation of a collaborative and/or decentralised workflow management system as part of their sophisticated problem solving processes.

 The objective of the International Workshop on Grid and Peer-to-Peer based Workflows is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and governments to report advances in grid and peer-to-peer based workflow research, instead of the so called traditional client-server based counterpart. The workshop welcomes the contribution of all aspects of research relevant to grid and peer-to-peer based workflows. The aspects may include, but not limited to, the following:

Submission Requirements

Submitted papers must be written in English and not published or submitted elsewhere. All submissions will be fully reviewed by at least two reviewers and will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. Submission guidelines are the same as QSIC2005. Please refer to the QSIC2005 Web site for paper submission details.

Publication of Papers

All accepted papers will appear in the QSIC2005 conference proceedings to be published by the IEEE Computer Society. Authors of accepted papers must register for the QSIC2005 conference.
