** Apologies for cross-postings! ** ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Elsevier's JOURNAL OF WEB SEMANTICS Special Issue on SEMANTIC GRID http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/semanticgrid/ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Description --------------- One of the key challenges in today's Grids is the need to deal with knowledge and data sources that are distributed, heterogeneous, and dynamic, and where effective elicitation of implicit knowledge is a necessary component of the overall system. In such systems, a complete global viewpoint or understanding is impossible to achieve. We therefore need to go beyond centralised knowledge service provision, and develop effective open, distributed, knowledge-based solutions. The Semantic Grid aims to overcome this problem by adding meaning (ontologies, annotations and negotiation processes as studied in the Semantic Web and Software Agent paradigms) to the Grid. In this way, the Semantic Grid not only provides a general semantic-based computational network infrastructure, but a rich, seamless collection of intelligent, knowledge-based services for enabling the management and sharing of complex resources and reasoning mechanisms. In the Semantic Grid knowledge and semantics are deployed explicitly for Grid applications and for the development of innovative Grid infrastructures. This knowledge-oriented semantics-based approach to the Grid goes hand-in-hand with the exploitation of techniques and methodologies from intelligent software agents and web services representing various components of the virtual organizations and interacting in a P2P way. This special issue of the journal (http://www.websemanticsjournal.org) is soliciting highest-quality submissions on all topics related to Semantic Grid.
