ISGC 2009: International Symposium on Grid Computing, Taipei, Taiwan

Call for Participation & Abstract
International Symposium on Grid Computing 2009 (ISGC 2009)

16th-23rd April 2009
Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the International Symposium on Grid Computing 2009(ISGC 2009) to be held on the 16th - 23rd April 2009 at the Building of Humanities and Social Science, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

ISGC is one of the most significant annual grid events in the Asia-Pacific region which brings together scientists and engineers worldwide to exchange ideas, to present on challenges, solutions and future development issues in the field of Grid Computing. Promoting the awareness of the global grid operation and collaboration between the Asia-Pacific region and the world, the ISGC provides an excellent opportunity to learn from the latest achievements not only in Asia-Pacific but worldwide.

The theme of the 2009 symposium is the celebration of new scientific advances being enabled on grids in the Asia Pacific region and how the many types of resources (volunteer grids, production managed grids and cloud systems) are being used to support these advances.

The symposium covers a variety of presentations ranging from applications in High Energy Physics, Biomedicine & Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Environmental Monitoring & Disaster Mitigation, Humanities & Social Sciences, Grid Activities in Asia-Pacific, as well technical developments in Grid Operation & Management, Grid Middleware & Interoperability, Grid Security & Networking, Digital Library & Content Management, and Grid Computing & Cloud Computing.

A Volunteer Computing (Asia@ Home) Workshop, EUAsiaGrid (http://www.euasiagrid.eu/) project meeting, EGEE Tutorial (http://training.eu-egee.org/index.php?id=227), and iRODS workshops (http://www.irods.org) will be organized in conjunction with ISGC 2009. Collaborating events will take place from the 16th ~20th April 2009. For details of the program please refer to the ISGC website at http://event.twgrid.org/isgc2009.

By sharing experiences from a variety of Grid systems, ISGC provides the potential grid providers, developers and users with invaluable insights for developing grid technology and application. We look forward to seeing you at ISGC 2009!
