The commercial exploitation of technologies of distributed computing is slowly starting to become popular under the term Cloud Computing. These solutions allow selling and buying of resources (i.e. computing resources, network resources, software resources, and data resources) on demand. Existing solutions in this area are diverse, ranging from Intrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) models via Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models. Although the economics of these services is not understood yet and the interoperability of those services is still laking, a common market for simple computing services is slowly developing. It allows buyers and sellers of computing services to trade easily. However, it is still not possible that any market participant can act as a resource provider or resource seller, depending on the current demand level. Another example of a developing open market is the Web2.0 service system, which enables consumers to create new services. The benefit of these solutions is that value can created through easy combination of services, excess capacity can be sold to reduce costs, and demand peaks can be covered with cheap Grid resources.
These examples of services are still simple. But, in the future, these services could not only offer basic resources (e.g. resource services (network, storage, computing) for mass usage) but also complex services encapsulating high-performance-computing (HPC) methods or business service workflows.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to present final results and work in progress. However, submissions have to show original research in the area of Grid, Systems, and Services Economics. The topics of interest are:
This workshop follows the very successful past workshops, where high-quality technical papers have been presented.
The Gecon2010 workshop will be held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2010.
All papers will be published in the workshop proceedings in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). In addition to this, the authors of the top 5 accepted GECON 2010 papers will be invited to prepare an extended version of their papers for publication in the Journal of Future Generation Computing Systems - The International Journal of Grid Computing and eScience of Elsevier.
