The Grid has emerged as a global platform to support on-demand virtual organizations for coordinated sharing of distributed data, applications and processes. Service orientation of the Grid also makes it a promising platform for seamless and dynamic development, integration and deployment of service-oriented applications. The application components can be discovered, composed and delivered within a Grid of services, which are loosely coupled to create dynamic business processes and agile applications spanning organizations and computing platforms. The technologies contributing to such Grids of services include Web Services, Semantic Web, Grid Computing, Component Software and Agent Technology.

The GSEM'04 conference is an international forum for the presentation of the latest theoretical and practical results in technology solutions for engineering and management of Grid services and service-oriented applications.

The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields and interests, including Web Services, Semantic Web, Grid infrastructures, software components, workflow, intelligent agents and negotiation technologies, service management, and those looking for new business and research cooperation opportunities in the area of Grid services and service-oriented applications.
