Welcome to EVGM 2008

The End-to-end Virtualization and Grid Management (EVGM) workshop has been recently founded with a view to dealing with the very topical subject of managing virtualized resources in distributed environments, including resources that are dispersed geographically and/or administratively. The workshop is sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 6.6 on Management of Networks and Distributed Systems, with technical co-sponsorship by the IEEE Communications Society, Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM). The 2nd EVGM workshop will be held September 24, 2008 on the Island of Samos, Greece, as part of the 4th International Week on Management of Networks and Services (MANWEEK 2008).
