Desktop grids and volunteer computing systems utilize the free resources available in Intranet and Internet environments for supporting large-scale computation and storage. The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussing recent advances and identifying open issues for the development of scalable, fault-tolerant, and secure desktop grid systems. This year's workshop will have special emphasis on the interaction of clouds and desktop grids.
