The deadline is May 15 for papers for GECON2009, the
6th International Workshop on Grid Economics and Business Models. The conference itself is to be held in Delft, The Netherlands, on August 24, 2009, and will be co-located with Euro-Par 2009.

The GECON workshop invites researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss issues associated with the development of a common market for computing resources. The purpose of this workshop is to suggest future directions of research and extensions to existing technologies, aiming at the successful deployment of this commercial, service-oriented market for computing resources.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present final results and work in progress. However, submissions have to be original research in the area of Grid economics. The topics of interest are:

    * Business modeling and analysis
    * Grid value chain and value networks
    * Economic modeling
    * Software-as-a-Service models
    * Web2.0
    * Markets, market mechanisms and market models
    * Service-orientation of Grid systems
    * Utility computing models for networked systems
    * Knowledge utility models
    * Incentives for participation and resource sharing
    * Economic-enhanced Grid services
    * Analysis of pricing schemes for Grid systems
    * Reports on test beds and operation
    * Analysis of application scenarios (with stakeholders and roles)
    * Resource (computing, bandwidth, storage) selection and allocation
    * Metering, accounting, and charging
    * Billing systems
    * Decision support systems for users and providers
    * Capacity planning systems
    * Service level agreements (SLAs)
    * Economic aspects of XaaS Virtual organizations
    * Trust, security, and risk management
    * Standardization
