Brussels, 22 Sep 2005
A joint UNESCO-ROSTE and CERN event on grid computing, 'Grid - the Key to Scientific Collaboration', will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 28 to 29 September.
Grid computing, designed as an open, distributed computing paradigm, has rapidly moved to the centre of attention as a key future-oriented technology. Based on the collaboration-fostering and research-enabling role of the grid, CERN and UNESCO-ROSTE are taking the opportunity to invite current and future grid participants, universities and research institutions to a grid event.
Through presentations by key grid protagonists, including some from CERN who are involved in the European Commission funded Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) project, participants will be able to learn about the capabilities of the grid, opportunities to leverage their research work, and how to participate in international projects.
