CFP: Workshop on Web Services-based Grid Applications (WSGA, with ICPP-2006)
Based on the successful 2005 ICPP workshop "Workshop on Web And Grid Services for Scientific Data Analysis (WAGSSDA)", this workshop will continue the examination of how ideas from the Grid world are being transformed into a layer above Web Services by scientific researchers who are exploring these technologies to see if they can help satisfy their needs.
While the concepts of the Grid have had tremendous promise, thus far this promise has not been fully realized. On the other hand, simple web-based technologies have transformed Web pages in powerful and
dynamic content, which are being further enhanced by emerging Web Services. Many feel that Web services-based applications may be the solution that will allow the Grid to realize its potential.
