The traditional venture of Computational technology is to take on all types of human difficulties and to determine clever automata geared toward assuaging the b- den of understanding compatible instruments for fixing complicated difficulties. therefore ComputationalScience,thoughoriginatingfromtheneedtosolvethemostch- lenging difficulties in technology and engineering (computational technology is the most important participant within the ?ght to achieve basic advances in astronomy, biology, che- stry, environmental technological know-how, physics and several scienti?c and engineering disciplines) is more and more turning its realization to all ?elds of human job. In all actions, in reality, extensive computation, info dealing with, kn- ledge synthesis, using ad-hoc units, and so on. more and more have to be exploited and coordinated whatever the situation of either the clients and the (various and heterogeneous) computing systems. therefore the major to realizing the explosive progress of this self-discipline lies in adjectives that an increasing number of accurately confer with Computational technological know-how and its purposes: interoperable and ubiquitous. various examples of ubiquitous and interoperable instruments and applicationsaregiveninthepresentfourLNCSvolumescontainingthecontri- tions added on the 2004 foreign convention on Computational technological know-how and its functions (ICCSA 2004) held in Assisi, Italy, might 14–17, 2004.
