The International Conference Distributed Computing ānd Grid Technologies in Science ānd Education will take place at the Laboratory of Information Technologies of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research from 29 June to 2 July 2004.
Nowadays Grid becomes a dominating concept of distributed computations. The Grid is currently considered worldwide as the most promising strategy of global computing that uses geographically distributed resources and invokes application of open standards, integration of dissimilar systems and dynamic allocation of computing resources.
Nowadays it is rather difficult to find a developed in any way country that does not run work on creation of national Grid-segments and their integration in the global Grid-infrastructure. It is evident that in the nearest future the Grid will take on a role of a universal computing toolkit in various areas of human activities - from fundamental scientific research to medical diagnostics.
The main objective of the Conference is to promote the formation of a community of experts from Russia and other countries carrying out research and developments in Grid technology applications. For such a community the conference will provide a possibility to present and discuss their ideas and latest results, as well as to make contacts and enable a more close cooperation.
