  • GRID 2001
    2nd International Workshop on Grid Computing

    Craig A. Lee, The Aerospace Corp.

    The growing popularity of the Internet and the availability of powerful computers and high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components are changing the way we do computing. These new technologies enable the clustering of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources, such as supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and special devices, that can then be used as a unified resource and thus form what are popularly known as computational grids. A grid is analogous to the electrical power grid and aims to couple distributed resources and offer consistent and inexpensive access to resources irrespective of their physical location.

    GRID 2001 is an international meeting that brings together the grid community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The first meeting, GRID 2000, was held in conjunction with HiPC 2000, in Bangalore, India, and attracted participants from 15 countries. The objective of GRID 2001 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.
