This conference follows spirit of the earlier meetings and the flavor of series can be seen at the Third Meeting in Bangalore which links to earlier meetings and general information.


The next generation of scientific research and experiments will be carried out by communities of researchers from organizations that span national boundaries. These activities will involve geographically distributed and heterogeneous resources such as computational systems, scientific instruments, databases, sensors, software components, networks, and people. Such large-scale and enhanced scientific endeavors, popularly termed as e-Science, are carried out via collaborations on a global scale.

Grid computing has emerged as one of the key computing paradigms that enable the creation and management of an Internet-based utility computing infrastructure, called cyberinfrastructure or e-infrastructure, for the realization of e-Science and e-Business at the global level. To harness the potential of e-Science and Grid computing paradigms, several national and international projects around the world have been initiated to carry out research and innovation activities that will transform the goal of e-Science and Grid computing into a reality.

The e-Science 2008 conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC), is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference serves as a forum to present the results of the latest research and product/tool developments, and highlight related activities from around the world.

Topics of interest concerning e-Science and Grid Computing include, but not limited to, the following:

·         Enabling Technologies: Internet and Web Services

·         Collaborative Science Models and Techniques

·         Service-Oriented Grid Architectures

·         Problem Solving Environments

·         Application Development Environments

·         Programming Paradigms and Models

·         Resource Management and Scheduling

·         Grid Economy and Business Models

·         Autonomic, Real-Time and Self-Organising Grids

·         Virtual Instruments and Data Access Management

·         Sensor Networks and Environmental Observatories

·         Security Challenges for Grids and e-Science

·         e-Science for applications including Physics, Biology, Astronomy, Chemistry, Finance, Engineering and the Humanities.

·         Web 2.0 Technology and Services for e-Science

Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single-spaced, 10-point font size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines:

Authors should submit a PDF or PostScript (Level 2) file that will print on a PostScript printer. Full paper submission instructions will be placed on the conference website. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.


e-Science 2008 will also feature workshops, tutorials, exhibits, and an industrial track. To organize or participate in these please see the conference web site or email before February 1, 2008.
