Grids are revolutionising computing as profoundly as e-mail and the Web revolutionised communications and publishing in the last 15 years. Grids are a crucial enabling technology for Scientific and Industrial development in the decade. Grid, Peer-to-Peer and other types of networked distributed computing and storage technologies, as well as emerging web technologies, have provided new paradigms exploiting distributed resources.

The CoreGRID Network of Excellence (NoE) is funded by the European Commission's 6th Framework Program. It aims at strengthening and advancing scientific and technological excellence in the area of Grid and Peer-to-Peer technologies. The Network is operated as a European Research Laboratory and brings together a critical mass of well-established researchers from 46 institutions.

The CoreGRID Symposium aims at being the premiere European event on Grid Computing for the dissemination of the results from European and member states initiatives as well as other international projects in Grid research and technologies. It is organized jointly with the Euro-Par 2008 conference. The CoreGRID Symposium will focus on all aspects of Grid computing including service infrastructures and as such will bring together participants from Research and Industry.
