International Grid Interoperability and Interoperation Workshop 2008 
(IGIIW 2008) 

in conjunction with 

4th IEEE International Conference on e-Science (e-Science 2008)

December 7-12, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Organizer: Morris Riedel (co-chair of OGF Grid Interoperation Now Community

Significant international and broader interdisciplinary research is
increasingly carried out by global collaborations that use next generation
infrastructures such as Grids as a base to enable enhanced science
(e-science). Many e-science applications take advantage of these
infrastructures to simulate phenomena related to a specific scientific or
engineering domain on advanced (parallel) computer architectures. In
addition, more and more commercial players adopt the concepts of next
generation infrastructures to enable new kinds of economic applications and
flexible resource usage models.

More recently, increasing complexity of e-science applications that embrace
multiple physical models (i.e. multi-physics) and consider a larger range of
scales (i.e. multi-scale) is creating a steadily growing demand of compute
power and storage capabilities. This leads to the demand of world-wide
interoperable infrastructures that allow for new innovative types of
e-science by using, for example, high throughput computing (HTC)
infrastructures and high performance computing (HPC) resources together for
complex e-science application workflows. Thus the only option left to
satisfy increasing e-science application demands is to harness a united
federation of world-wide Grids, which provides access to different kinds of
resources and services.


The workshop will discuss the interoperability and interoperation aspects of
current Grid and Web technologies, production Grids in general, and the
interoperability through emerging open standards and well designed
interfaces in particular. In the context of this workshop, the difference
between interoperability and interoperation is as follows: Interoperation is
specifically defined as what needs to be done to get production Grids (e.g.
DEISA, EGEE, TeraGrid) to work together as a fast short-term achievement
using as much existing technologies as available today. Hence, this is not
the perfect solution and different than interoperability that is defined as
the native ability of Grids and Grid middleware (UNICORE, gLite, Globus
Toolkit, and others) to interact directly via well defined interfaces and
common open standards. This will enable cross-Grid use cases and
applications from a growing range of domains in industry and science, taking
also recent technologies such as Clouds or Web 2.0 into account. 

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working in the area of interoperability and interoperation within
distributed environments such as Grids or Clouds, to exchange and share
their experiences, new ideas, and latest research results as well as open
problems. Enough time for intensive discussions will be provided and
outcomes of the workshop will be summarized in the session.
