Academia, Government, Enterprise Come Together At GlobusWORLD

GlobusWORLD announced a diverse range of speakers and attendees from academia, science, government and enterprise -- gathering in Boston to debate, discuss and share different approaches to Grid computing.

Similar to the historic progression of the Internet, Grid's origins are in academia and government. As the enterprise evaluates this nascent technology, similar questions are being raised about standards, cultural issues, new resource management requirements -- and a whole host of other considerations. GlobusWORLD 2005 allows attendees to get their Grid knowledge straight from the source -- the research professionals who have been using Grid for years.

"We built our program around the theme of 'bridging the gap between cutting edge research and enterprise Grid,'" said Greg Nawrocki, conference co-chair. "While Grid is still a relatively new concept in the enterprise, the research community already has a long track record of successful Grid implementations. Enterprise professionals who want to know more about the promise of Grid should come to GlobusWORLD to tap into this wealth of information represented by the research community."

GlobusWORLD 2005 today announced the addition of 7 new technical discussions that will take place in this year's program, including a series of in depth sessions on the up-coming Globus Toolkit 4.0 release:

-- "A Framework for Managing and Provisioning Services on Grid-Enabled Resource Limited Devices."  Presenters include:  Raj Kumar -- Hewlett Packard, OST & HP Labs; Xiang Song -- College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology.

-- "Xgrid and Globus: Balancing Power and Ease-of-use."  Presenter: Matt MacInnis -- Apple Science and Technology Markets.

-- "Resource Virtualization and Management using WSRF/WSN and WSDM." Presenters: Latha Srinivasan -- HP; Philip Vitale -- HP.

-- "Options for Building WSRF Compliant Services."  Presenters:  Jarek Gawor -- The Globus Alliance -- Argonne National Laboratory; Marty Humphrey -- University of Virginia; Keith Jackson -- Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Sam Lang -- The Globus Alliance -- Argonne National Laboratory; Sam Meder -- The Globus Alliance -- University of Chicago.

-- "GT4 Security."  Presenters:  Frank Siebenlist -- ANL and Von Welch -- NCSA.

-- "GT4 Base Services Administration."  Presenters:  Charles Bacon -- Globus Alliance, Argonne National Laboratory; Ben Clifford -- The Globus Alliance, USC Information Sciences Institute.

Other sessions feature in depth Globus Toolkit 4.0 information at both an overview and developer level for; Data Management, including Grid FTP and OGSA-DAI; Job Submission and Execution Management; The Replica Location Service; and Monitoring and Discovery

GlobusWORLD 2005 will also feature the most comprehensive look at Enterprise Grid issues seen to date -- including essential updates on open source Grid standards. In addition to a variety of Fortune 500 Grid end users such as Sprint and Wachovia, speakers include some of the most important influencers in enterprise Grid, including senior level representatives from Apple, Cisco, Data Synapse, Egenera, Force10, GridXpert, HP, IBM, Intel, NEC, Nortel, Novell, Oracle, SAP, Sun, Topspin and Univa.
