Workshop on "Knowledge Grid and Grid Intelligence"

October 13, 2003, Halifax, Canada

http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/~william/KGGI03/index.html

In conjunction with 2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on
Web Intelligence / Intelligent Agent Technology

http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/WI03
http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/IAT03

Grid Computing is evolving from the merely sharing of distributed
resources for large computational tasks to the developing of Grid
as a service-oriented architecture for transparent and reliable
distributed system integration. The paradigm of Grid computing complements
the current approach of Semantic Web and Web Services by providing an
infrastructure to handle large-scale distributed enterprise information
systems.

We envision that the success of using Grid for distributed system
integration will rely on how to have the resources of
the Grid, with its increasing scale and complexity, well managed.
``Grid intelligence'' refers to an emerging research field
that addresses on how the data and information available at different
levels of Grid services (e.g., HTML/XML/RDF/... documents,
Web usage, service response time, and service quality, etc)
can be effectively acquired, preprocessed, represented, interchanged,
integrated and eventually converted into useful intelligences
(knowledge).

As higher-level knowledge is going to play a more important role in
the future Grid applications issues related to the representation,
discovery, and integration of knowledge and the interchange of
different types of media in a distributed environment have to be
carefully addressed. Related Web intelligence techniques
such as data mining and knowledge discovery, text and multimedia
content analysis, semantic information extraction and integration,
ontology engineering, etc can be applied. We believe that eventually
the Data and Computational Grid can be integrated with the "Knowledge
Grid", making a lot of complicated and computationally
expensive tasks easier and on-demand.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners
to identify and explore the issues, opportunities, and solutions for
Knowledge Grid and Grid Intelligence. It will provide a forum for free
exchange of ideas and will be featured by invited talks and refereed
paper presentations. Authors are invited to submit regular papers,
reports on work in progress, and position papers. Appropriate topics for
papers include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Web intelligence solutions for knowledge grids
- Data/Information/Knowledge Grids integration, mediation and middleware
- Knowledge representation and ontology learning
- Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed datasets
- Text and multimedia content analysis and indexing
- Semantic Web mining and metadata generation
- Semantically interoperable Web services
- Knowledge management in Grid environment
- Agent-based Workflow systems
- Applications in e.g., e-science (computation, visualization),
e-business (distributed system integration)
- Agent architectures on and for grid
- Agent decision making model
- Self-organizing systems and emergent organization
- Distributed problem solving on the grids
- Distributed coordination
- Collective, self-organized intelligence
- Modeling and characterization of agent dynamics
- Coalition formation on grid
- Conflicts, conflict resolution and negotiation
- Grid service and policy semantics and ontologies
- Grid service creation, advertisement, registration,
contract creation, delivery
- Robust/automonic/self-organized mechanisms for Grid service
discovery, matchmaking, scheduling and resource management
- Computational economy on grid
- Online negotiation of access to grid services
- Grid service usage policy management and enforcement
- Dynamic formation and management of virtual organizations in grid
- Privacy and security issues for data grid and knowledge grid

Workshop on Knowledge Grid and Grid Intelligence





Workshop on "Knowledge Grid and Grid Intelligence"

October 13, 2003, Halifax, Canada

http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/~william/KGGI03/index.html

In conjunction with 2003 IEEE/WIC International Conference on

The Grid Computing has evolved from the earlier days of merely
sharing distributed resources for solving big computational tasks
to the latest trend of developing the Grid as a service-oriented
architecture to support transparent and reliable distributed
systems integration. Thanks to its recent marriage with Web Services
and the Semantic Web. While the Semantic Web + Web Services
emphasizes on the interoperability of different on-line systems,
the Grid complements it by providing the infrastructure to handle
large-scale distributed enterprises information systems.

We envision that the success of using the Grid for distributed
system integration will reply on how to have the resources of
the Grid, with its increasing scale and complexity, well managed.
``Grid intelligence'' refers to a newly emerging research field
focusing on how the data and information available on different
levels of Grid services (e.g., HTML/XML/RDF/... documents,
hyperlinks, Web usage, service response time, service quality, ...)
can be carefully acquired, preprocessed, represented, interchanged,
integrated and eventually converted into unique intelligences
(knowledge) -- to enhance the overall Grid performance. Related
research issues include intelligent mechanisms for resource specification,
discovery, brokering/matchmaking, scheduling, negotiation, etc.
Agent-based technologies address the autonomy, socialablity, adaptability
and goal-driven properties of software systems and thus provide the most
suitable computing paradigm for the dynamically changing Grid environment.

As higher-level knowledge is going to play a more important role in
the future Grid applications (e.g., e-science, e-business), issues
related to knowledge representation, discovery, integration,
interchange of different types of media in a distributed environment
have to be carefully addressed. Related Web intelligence techniques
including data mining and knowledge discovery, text and multimedia
content analysis, semantic information extraction and integration,
ontology engineering, etc. can be applied. We believe that eventually
the Data Grid and Computational Grid can integrated with the "Knowledge
Grid", making a lot of used-to-be complicated and computationally
expensive tasks truly just-in-time and on-demand.

Some related areas are listed as but not limited to:

- Web intelligence solutions for knowledge grids
- Data/Information/Knowledge Grids integration, mediation and middleware
- Knowledge representation and ontology learning
- Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed datasets
