General Information
The possibility to perform measurement tasks and experiments on complex tele-laboratory structures is gaining momentum as a relevant aspect in a number of areas, from scientific and technological research, to environmental monitoring, to distance learning and training.
Grid architectures, viewed as tools for the integration of distributed resources, play a significant role, not only as managers of computational resources, but increasingly as aggregators of measurement instrumentation and pervasive large-scale data acquisition platforms. In this context, the functionality of a grid architecture allows managing, maintaining and exploiting heterogeneous instrumentation and acquisition devices in a unified way, by providing standardized interfaces and common work environments to their users. This is achieved through the properties of isolation from the physical network and from the peculiarities of the instrumentation, granted by standard middleware, together with secure and flexible mechanisms to seek, access and aggregate distributed resources.
The following topics are the issues concerning the theme of the Workshop:
  • Grid architectures with real-time control
  • Grid middleware extensions for remote control of instruments and devices
  • Resource Management
  • Tele-measurement techniques
  • Distributed synchronization and calibration
  • Workflow management for large-scale experiments
  • Visualization techniques
  • Distributed data acquisition and sensor networks
  • Management of large data sets
  • Mobile and wireless grids
  • Management of large-scale physics experiments
  • Networking solutions in support of Grid architectures
  • Reliability and fault tolerance
  • Supporting interactive applications in the grid environment
  • Collaborative environments for the Grid
