  • 3. Call for Papers Special Issue on Data Mining in Grid Computing Environments FUTURE GENERATION COMPUTER SYSTEMS: The International Journal of Grid Computing: Theory, Methods and Applications Guest editors: Werner Dubitzky (w.dubitzky@ulster.ac.uk), University of Ulster Vlado Stankovski (vlado.stankovski@uni-lj.si), University of Ljubljana INTRODUCTION The effective and efficient management and use of stored data, and in particular the transformation of these data into information and knowledge, is considered a key requirement for success in many sectors in industry, science, government and other areas. In the past, research in data mining has mainly focused on largely homogeneous and localized computing environments. Clearly, these assumptions are no longer met in modern scientific and industrial complex problem-solving environments, which are increasingly relying on the sharing of geographically dispersed computing resources and an ever- increasing amount of digital data, information, and knowledge generated by the underlying activities and processes. Future generation computer systems, based on emerging grid and Web services technology, promise to provide reliable and secure computing infrastructures facilitating the seamless use of distributed data, knowledge, data mining applications, tools and systems to solve complex problems in science, industry, healthcare, governments and elsewhere. However, the development of such systems also poses new problems and challenges, both in terms of technology and other factors such as legal and ethical constraints. OBJECTIVES The aim of this special issue is to focus on challenges, applications and lessons learned from data mining approaches in modern grid and Web services computing environments. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:  Architectures for data mining in future generation computer systems  Semantics in the data mining process, e.g. to identify resources for data mining, such as data sources, mining programs, storage and computing capacity to run large-scale mining jobs, tracking provenance  Data privacy and security issues  Data types, formats, and standards for mining data in distributed computing environments  Approaches to mining inherently distributed data, i.e. data that for one reason or another cannot be physically integrated on a single node or computer  Data mining of truly large and high-dimensional data sets, e.g. data sets that do not fully fit into local memory  Tools and languages facilitating data mining in distributed computing environments, e.g. workflow concepts, visualization tools, user interfaces, programming models and languages
  • 4.  Adaptation of existing and development of new data mining algorithms that can exploit parallel computing architectures  Applications of data mining algorithms, tools and systems in future generation computer systems  Theoretical foundations of data mining approaches in distributed computing environments SUBMISSION AND REVIEWING PROCEDURE The submitted manuscript should present original work that may not be under review elsewhere.

  • 5. Call for Papers Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS) Special Issue on: Application of Security Engineering to Grid/Distributed Computing Systems Scope & Topics: Today general computer systems include a larger number of components such as servers and clients, protocols, services, etc. Systems connected to network have become more complex and distributed, but most system-related research is still focused on the ‘performance’ or ‘efficiency’. Most attention in system security has been focused on encryption technology and protocols for securing the data transaction. It is critical to note that a weakness (or security hole) in any of the components may comprise the whole system. Security engineering is needed to reduce security holes that may be found in the systems. Due to the complexity of the problem new security-related research based on computational intelligence approaches is needed to reduce security weakness; the results should be included in systems and complement security-related considerations of general system and software engineering. Topics of interest will focus on: - Application of security engineering to IT products or systems; - Application of security engineering to grid/distributed computing systems development processes and operational environments; - Security Testing and Evaluation of grid/distributed computing systems; - Other application of security engineering to grid/distributed computing systems. Submission of Papers: We invite you to submit a full paper up to 12 pages (A4), describing new and original results. The submitted paper must be formatted according to the FGCS rules.

  • 8. Call for Papers Special Issue on Life Science Grids for Biomedicine and Bioinformatics FUTURE GENERATION COMPUTER SYSTEMS: The International Journal of Grid Computing: Theory, Methods and Applications Guest editors: Giovanni Aloisio (giovanni.aloisio@unile.it), University of Lecce, Italy Vincent Breton (breton@clermont.in2p3.fr), CNRS/IN2P3, LPC Clermont-Ferrand, France Maria Mirto (maria.mirto@unile.it), University of Lecce, Italy Almerico Murli (almerico.murli@dma.unina.it), University of Naples, Italy Tony Solomonides (Tony.Solomonides@uwe.ac.uk), University of West of England, UK INTRODUCTION Omics technologies (genomics - DNA, transcriptomics - RNA, proteomics - protein, metabolomics - metabolite and phenomics - phenotype) and medical informatics have changed the arena of life sciences research forever. They allow generation of data at a large-scale, which started with the whole-genome followed by micro-array gene-expression analysis, mass spectrometry of proteins and metabolites, biomedical imaging processing and health care. Omics technologies require substantial paradigm shifts for the way life sciences research is carried out. Biological experiments are relatively expensive, which forces scientists to focus on advanced design for experimentation as part of a whole-chain research approach. Furthermore, the data generally contains information outside the scope of the original experiment. Hence, to maximize scope of experiments, biological data needs to be reusable, shareable and suitable for in-silico experiments. All of this poses high demands on annotation of data and standardization of data formats. Furthermore, the conversion of data into information and knowledge to support scientists answering biological questions, requires advanced analysis methods and tools that enable mining and integrating these complex datasets. The bottlenecks for life sciences have shifted from data generation to data storage, pre-processing, analysis, and interpretation. The current challenge is to remove these bottlenecks by a combination of life sciences and information technology (IT). The effective and efficient management and use of stored data, and in particular the transformation of these data into information and knowledge, is thus a key requirement for success in Life Sciences, as already has been recognized in many others sectors such as industry, science, government. Modern scientific and industrial complex problem-solving environments are increasingly relying on the sharing of geographically dispersed computing resources and an ever- increasing amount of digital data, information, and knowledge generated by the underlying activities and processes. Life Science Grids are based on the integration of emerging technologies such as Grids, Bioinformatics, Web/Grid Services, Workflow, Semantic Web, to support applications and research in different fields of Life Sciences, such as Health Care, Biomedicine, Computational Chemistry. They promise to provide reliable and secure computing infrastructures facilitating the seamless use of distributed datasets, bioinformatics tools and

  • 10. CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE SPECIAL ISSUE “SECURITY ON THE GRID AND DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS” ELSEVIER Purpose of the Special Issue Security plays an important role in the field of grid computing and distributed systems in general. Grids provide access to distributed computing and data resources through high-speed networks, allowing applications to improve significantly their performance. The great challenge of grid computing is the complete integration of heterogeneous computing systems and data resources with the aim of providing a global computing space. The achievement of this goal is involving revolutionary changes in the field of computation and more concretely, in the security aspect, because it enables resource- sharing across networks. Distributed systems provide global sharing of computational resources and the sharing process should be trustable. Security threats exploit the weakness of protocols as well as operating systems in the distributed systems, and also extended to attack applications such as database systems, file sharing systems, real- time and multimedia online applications. The attacks, including Distributed Deny of Service, Virus, Buffer Overflows and Worms, are causing more economic damages and arouse more attentions. To achieve a secured distributed system in the future’s networks and applications, the cybersecurity aspects, namely, data confidentiality, authentication, nonrepudiation, data integrity, privacy, access control and availability etc., should be fully addressed. The purpose of this special issue will be to present to the readership of Future Generation Computer Systems a reference of the state-of-the-art in Security on Grid environments and distributed systems. The topics of interest of this special issue will include but will be not limited to: • Distributed digital signatures
