Here is a list of journals that are considering the publication of extended versions of WEBIST best papers.
Future Generation Computer Systems: The International Journal Of Grid Computing: Theory, Methods And Applications

Special issue of International Journal Of Grid Computing: Theory, Methods And Applications will be published with extended versions of the best papers from WEBIST in the area of Grid Computing.

The Grid is a rapidly developing computing structure that allows components of our information technology infrastructure, computational capabilities, databases, sensors, and people to be shared flexibly as true collaborative tools. Over the last 3 years there has been a real explosion of new theory and technological progress supporting a better understanding of these wide-area, fully distributed computing systems. After the advances made in distributed system design, collaborative environments, high performance computing and high throughput computing, the Grid is the logical next step.

The new Aims and Scope of FGCS will cover new developments in:

[1] Grid Applications and application support:
- Novel applications
- eScience and eBusiness applications
- Problem solving environments and virtual laboratories
- Grid economy
- Semantic and knowledge based grids
- Collaborative Grids and virtual organizations
- High Performance and high throughput computing on grids
- Complex application workflows
- Scientific, industrial and social implications
- Grids in education

[2] Grid methods and middleware:
- Tools for grid development: monitoring and scheduling
- Distributed dynamic resource management
- Grid- and web-services
- Information management
- Protocols and emerging standards
- Peer to peer and internet computing
- Pervasive computing
- Grid Security

[3] Grid Theory:
- Process specification; program and algorithm design
- Theoretical aspects of wide area communication and computation
- Scaling and performance theory
- Protocol verification


International Journal of Web Information Systems

Special issue of IJWIS published in early/mid 2007 with extended versions of the best papers from ICEIS and WEBIST in the area of Internet Computing.
Final accepted papers must be written in LaTex as this is the only format accepted by our publisher. Further details can be found in

The era of web technology has enabled information and application sharing through the internet. The large amount of information on the internet, the large number of users, and the complexity of the application and information types have introduced new areas whereby these issues are explored and addressed. Many of the existing information systems techniques and methods for data sharing, modeling, and system implementation are no longer effective and therefore need major adjustment. This has stimulated the emergence of web information systems.
The goal of a web information system is to provide users with a unified view to transparently and efficiently access, relate, and combine data stored in multiple, autonomous, and possibly heterogeneous information sources.
Three dimensions can be identified for web information infrastructure: the user dimension, which is what web information systems are all about, likewise, the content dimension, which is the essence around which web information systems are built and finally the system dimension which determines how web applications and services can be implemented.
IJWIS is seeking to present visionary concepts and stimulating ideas in web information systems at both the theory and application levels.

While IJWIS covers a broad range of topics, we are soliciting papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of the Web information systems: Web semantics and web dynamics, Web mining and searching, Web databases and web data integration, Web-based commerce and e-business, Web collaboration and distributed computing, Internet computing and networks, Performance of web applications, and Web multimedia services and web-based education.

Topics of particular interest for this issue are, but not limited to, the list below:

• Metadata and ontologies
• Web semantics architectures, applications and standards
• Language and representation issues of web semantics
• Migrating existing information
• Web mining
• Web search and information extraction
• Web structure/linkage mining
• Applications of web mining and searching
• Web databases
• Managing and storing XML data
• Generation of XML data from legacy applications
• Indexing and retrieval of XML data
• Web data integration
• Web schema management
• Web media
• Web design metrics
• Web-based metacomputing
• Communities on the web
• Formal reasoning about web dynamics
• Web-commerce and E-business
• E-Business models and architectures
• Agent technology for E-Commerce
• E-Business application case studies
• Workflow architectures in support of collaboration process
• Establishment and coordination of virtual enterprises
• Emerging interoperability standards
• Internet quality of service
• Internet traffic engineering
• Mobile computing for the Internet
• Performance of web applications
• Web-based education
• Advanced web applications
