Bridging Global Computing with Grid (BIGG)


Within the context of its multi-annual Framework Programmes, the European Commission has made significant investments to support R&D in Grids and Global Computing, addressing a wide array of technologies and research issues such as service oriented architectures, resource virtualisation, peer-to-peer computing, security, and architectures and algorithms for overlay computers. Numerous projects in the areas of global computing, Grid technologies and situated and autonomic communication are underway

The objective of the workshop is to provide a direct gateway facilitating interactions between the different communities, in particular through exchange of views and ideas on technologies and research challenges in the broad area of open and distributed systems. Building on the vision and excellence of running projects in the area of global computing, Grids and autonomic communication technologies, this workshop will be leading to the identification of concrete opportunities for future exploitation and opening new scientific perspectives in research.

The main focus of the talks should be on identifying opportunities for information exchange between projects,  and more concretely:

  • What are the missing technologies (in a project or in industry in general) that other running initiatives could provide
  • What are the technologies requiring, or subject to, specific transfer (from upstream to applied research, or from applied research towards exploitation)
  • What are the respective merits of the approach of one project as compared to the others in a given area: benchmarking of best practices
  • What are the possible areas of common interest calling for future collaboration between the different disciplines and/or projects involved.

The workshop is OPEN and no registration fee is required. However the number of participants is limited to 70 due to the size of the room. The policy is "first come first serve" for the registration.
