    SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers by
    uploading them to http://worldcomp.cviog.uga.edu/ .
    Submissions must be received by Mar. 17, 2009 and they must be in
    either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space,
    font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are
    acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
    follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for
    publication.)

    The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
    to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously
    published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The
    first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
    name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
    author.
    The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
    and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
    content of the paper. Finally, the name of the conference (GCA)
    must be mentioned on the first page.

    Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
    impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts
    in the field who are independent of the conference program
    committee.
    The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
    the program committee who will recommend a decision to the co-
    chairs.
    The co-chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-
    Ready
    papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.

    IMPORTANT DATES:

    March 17, 2009: Extended deadline for Submission of papers
    (about 5 to 7 pages)
    April 17, 2009: Notification of acceptance
    May 4, 2009: Camera-Ready papers and Registration due
    July 13-16, 2009: The 2009 World Congress in Computer Science,
    Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
    (WORLDCOMP'09 - 22 joint conferences)

    MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

    The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
    of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;
    imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
    embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications;
    bioinformatics; computational biology; and computer security.)
    The Program Committee for GCA is currently being formed. Those
    interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof.
    Arabnia
    () the following information: Name, affiliation
    and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
    biography together with research interests and the name of the
    conference (GCA) offering to help with.
    Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
    are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
    practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
    laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
    departments, deans and provosts.

    PURPOSE / HISTORY:

    GCA'09 is an annual research conference about grid computing and
    applications. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
    with a number of other conferences (WORLDCOMP'09). WORLDCOMP is
    the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science,
    computer engineering and applied computing.

    The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research
    topics
    into a coordinated meeting held in a common place at a common time.
    The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a
    number
    of research areas that interact. The model used facilitates
    communication among researchers from all over the world in
    different
    fields of computer science, computer engineering and applied
    computing. Both inward research (core areas of computer science
    and
    engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-
    disciplinary,
    and applications) will be covered during the event.

    GCA'09 and WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research presentations,
    keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel
    discussions,
    and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
    speakers included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California,
    Berkeley); Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H.
    Holland
    (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
    Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry
    Vercoe
    (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
    Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X
    Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
    many other distinguished speakers.

    LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

    The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
    Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
    a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
    rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle
    service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational
    attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy
    River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
    a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
    conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
    walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
    destinations, Golf courses, ...)
