Call for Papers

The 12th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Grid Computing (Grid2011)

Lyon, France
Sep 22 – Sep 23, 2011
Co-located with the EGI Technical Forum

Sponsorship in discussion:

  • The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing
  • Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture

Grid computing enables the sharing of distributed computing and data resources such as processing, network bandwidth and storage capacity to create a cohesive resource environment for executing distributed applications. The Grid conference series is an annual international meeting that brings together a community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users involved with Grid technology. The objective of the meeting is to serve as both the premier venue for presenting foremost research results in the area and as a forum for introducing and exploring new concepts. The conference will feature invited talks, workshops, and refereed paper presentations.

Grid 2011 welcomes paper and poster submissions on innovative work from researchers in academia, industry and government describing original research work in grid computing. Previous events in this series have been successful in attracting high quality papers and a wide international participation. This event will be co-located with the EGI Technical Forum.
