                               CALL FOR PAPERS


In these last years the World Wide Web and the Internet have been used
not only to communicate and share information, but more and more as a
deployment infrastructure for distributed applications.
On the other hand, Grid systems allow the flexible, secure, coordinated
resource sharing among dynamic collections of  individuals, institutions,
and resources, enabling virtual organizations and world-wide
distributed high-performance applications.

Although Web and Grid systems followed different paths in their development,
they share many problems and most probably will employ common solutions.
Next-generation Web and Grid systems should be able to produce, use,
and deploy knowledge, offering knowledge-empowered middleware and services.

The main goal of the track is to bring together researchers of Web and
Grid communities to discuss key problems and identify overlapping areas
in solutions and approaches for semantic middleware and knowledge-based services
for Next-Generation Web and Grid Systems.

Key challenges in today's Web and Grid Systems are:

  (i) the need to deal with data sources and computational resourcesthat are distributed, heterogeneous, and dynamic, exploiting adaptivelyavailable computational models, resources discovery protocols,metadata management systems, ontologies and semantic modellingof web and grid resources;

 (ii) the need to take decisions using implicit knowledge available atdifferent layers (from the network to the application layer),employing specialized components or services for data mining,knowledge elicitation and sharing.

Some emerging models and technologies that fulfill some requirements of
Next-Generation Web and Grid systems are the following.

    * Adaptive Web Systems are able to adapt themselves to different userrequirements and to manage, in an integrated way, the sources of
heterogeneity,due to world-wide diffusion and access.

    * The  Semantic Web is widely accepted as a means to enhancethe Web with machine processable content.

    * The Semantic Grid attempts to extend Semantic Web approaches and solutionsto take into account Grid characteristics.

    * Knowledge Grids offer high-level tools and techniques for distributedknowledge extraction from data repositories on the Grid, such as(i) synthesizing useful and usable knowledge from data;(ii) leveraging the Grid infrastructure to perform sophisticated
data-intensive largescale computation.

    * Peer-to-Peer is at once a set of protocols, a computing model,and a design philosophy for distributed, decentralized, and
self-organizing systems.

    * Ubiquitous computing describes distributed computing devices,such as personal devices, wearable computers, and sensors in the
environment,and the software and hardware infrastructuresneeded to support applications on these computing devices.
