      Special Issue on
    One of the key challenges in today's Grids is the need to deal with
    knowledge and data sources that are distributed, heterogeneous, and dynamic,
    and where effective elicitation of implicit knowledge is a necessary
    component of the overall system. In such systems, a complete global
    viewpoint or understanding is impossible to achieve. We therefore need to go
    beyond centralised knowledge service provision, and develop effective open,
    distributed, knowledge-based solutions.
    The Semantic Grid aims to overcome this problem by adding meaning
    (ontologies, annotations and negotiation processes as studied in the
    Semantic Web and Software Agent paradigms) to the Grid. In this way, the
    Semantic Grid not only provides a general semantic-based computational
    network infrastructure, but a rich, seamless collection of intelligent,
    knowledge-based services for enabling the management and sharing of complex
    resources and reasoning mechanisms. In the Semantic Grid knowledge and
    semantics are deployed explicitly for Grid applications and for the
    development of innovative Grid infrastructures. This knowledge-oriented
    semantics-based approach to the Grid goes hand-in-hand with the exploitation
    of techniques and methodologies from intelligent software agents and web
    services representing various components of the virtual organizations and
    interacting in a P2P way.
