TGC 2008

November 3-4, 2008

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Aula Māster at the A-3 Building, Campus Nord (see map)
Jordi Girona 1-3
Barcelona, Spain



Scope

The Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing is an international annual venue dedicated to safe and reliable computation in global computers. It focuses on providing frameworks, tools, and protocols for constructing well-behaved applications and on reasoning rigorously about their behaviour and properties. The related models of computation incorporate code and data mobility over distributed networks with highly dynamic topologies and heterogeneous devices.

TGC 2008, the fourth Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing, will be held in Barcelona (Spain), on November 3 - 4, 2008. The symposium is co-located with the reviews of EU FET-IST FP6 Projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS, and  SENSORIA.

     MOBIUS - Mobility, Ubiquity and
        Security      SENSORIA - Software
        Engineering for Service-Oriented Overlay Computers

Some previous TGC

The first TGC event took place in Edinburgh on April 7-9, 2005 with the co-sponsorship of IFIP TC-2, as part of ETAPS 2005. TGC 2005 was the evolution of the previous Global Computing I Workshops held in Rovereto in 2003 and 2004 (see e.g. LNCS 2874) and the workshops on Foundation of Global Computing held as satellite events of ICALP and Concur (see e.g. ENTCS Vol. 85).

TGC 2006 was held in Lucca (Italy), on November 7 - 9, 2006 and it was co-located with the reviews of EU FET-IST FP6 Projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS, SENSORIA and CATNETS.

TGC 2007 was held on November 5-6, 2007 in Sophia-Antipolis, France and it was followed by the Workshop on the Interplay of Programming Languages and Cryptography on November 7, 2007. The symposium was co-located with the reviews of the FP6 GCII projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS and SENSORIA.
