Grids will provide a large variety of complex services. The interaction between those services requires resource management and scheduling solutions which allow the coordinated usage of the services, something which is currently not readily available. Access to resources is typically subject to individual access, accounting, priority, and security policies imposed by the resource owners. In addition the consideration of different policies is also important for the implementation of various services like for example accounting or billing services. Generally those policies are enforced by local management systems. Therefore an architecture that supports the interaction of independent local management systems with higher-level scheduling services is an important component for Grids. Further, user of a Grid may also establish individual scheduling objectives. Future Grid scheduling and resource management systems must consider those constraints in the scheduling process. The goal of the Grid Scheduling Architecture Research Group (GSA-RG [1]) is to define a scheduling architecture that supports the cooperation between different scheduling instances for arbitrary Grid resources, including network, software, data, storage, and processing units. The research group will particularly address the interaction between resource management and data management. Co-allocation and the reservation of resources are key aspects of the new scheduling architecture, which will also integrate user- or provider-defined scheduling policies. The group started with identifying a set of relevant use cases based on experiences obtained by existing Grid projects. These use cases are reported in this document. In a future document the GSA-RG will determine the required components of a generic and modular scheduling architecture and their interactions
