5th International Workshop on Distributed Cooperative Laboratories:
"Instrumenting" the Grid

May 12-14, 2010
Poznan, Poland

A number of problems in science, industry and commerce, which require broad
international cooperation, may be addressed by using sophisticated equipment
and top-level expertise. Therefore, the development and dissemination of
techniques and technologies that allow virtualized, remote and shared access
to industrial or scientific instruments are essential for the progress of
society. The possibility of using scientific or industrial equipment
independently of their physical location helps towards equality of
opportunity for and unification of communities, and subsequently provides
new momentum for industry, science, and business.
The current edition of the Workshop goes beyond exploitation of remote
instrumentation on the Grid. First of all, it focuses on new Remote
Instrumentation (RI) aspects related to middleware architecture, high-speed
networking, wireless Grid for acquisition devices and sensor networks, QoS
provisioning for real-time control, measurement instrumentation and
methodology. Additionally, it will provide knowledge about automation of
mechanisms oriented to accompanying processes that are usually performed by
a human. Another important point of this workshop is focusing on the future
trends concerning RI systems development and actions related to
standardization of remote instrumentation mechanisms.
The Workshop will be structured in technical sessions, some of which will be
organized by leading researchers in the field, and will accommodate both
invited and regular papers, selected on an open-call basis. INGRID 2010
allows also additional possibilities to be actively engaged in the
conference program:
1) Special sessions - proposals for special sessions are welcome. Please
provide the session description (1-1.5 page) including a draft session
program. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of
the International Program Committee.
2) Extended abstracts - in alternative to full paper submission authors can
provide an extended abstract (1-2 pages). The abstracts positively approved
give a chance to make a presentation at the conference. A subsequent full
paper will be reviewed independently, with a chance to add the paper to the
post-workshop proceedings.
Contributions are solicited on all advanced research issues concerning the
theme of the Workshop, and particularly in (but not limited to) the
following topics:

Remote instrumentation:
  Remote instrumentation services
  Virtual and remote laboratories
  Virtualization technologies in remote instrumentation
  Security issues for the remote control of devices
  Architectures and use cases involving remote control of devices
  Grid middleware extensions for remote control of instruments and devices
  Interoperability of information systems for the remote control of devices
  Building of communities around remote control of devices
  Distributed synchronization and calibration
  Present and future trends in RIS development
  Standards and standardization processes for RIS systems

Tele-working environments and e-learning:
  Tele-working environments and tele-presence
  Tele-services, tele-diagnosis and tele-robotics
  Tele-communities and their social impact
  Collaborative work in virtual engineering environments
  Mixed-Reality environments for education and training
  Demands in education and training, e-learning, b-learning, m-learning and
  Innovative organizational and educational concepts for remote engineering

Distributed data management:
  Management of large scientific data sets
  Networking solutions in support of scientific data transport
  Distributed data acquisition in sensor networks
  Data management in Wireless Sensor Networks
  Metadata and advanced information systems for instruments and sensors

Grid integration of experimental and computational resources:
  Workflow management for large-scale experiments
  Visualization techniques
  Grid integration of experimental and computational processes
  Human computer interfaces, usability, reusability, accessibility
  Deployment of large scale applications for online engineering
  Supporting interactive applications in the grid environment

  Paper submission:   Feb. 28, 2010
  Special session proposals: Feb. 28, 2010
  Acceptance notification:  March 31, 2010
  Camera ready copy due:  April 15, 2010

Manuscripts to be considered as regular papers should be original work
limited to 20 double-spaced pages.
Extended Abstracts should be limited to 2 double-spaced pages.
Any paper submitted to the Workshop must not have been published in or
submitted to other technical conferences/journals.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted. The preferred format for
electronic submission is PDF suitable for Acrobat Reader, or Postscript. All
submissions must be done through the Web site (http://www.ingrid.cnit.it).
Electronic versions of the papers will be available at the Workshop.
The proceedings will be published in book form after the Workshop (contacts
