CoreGRID/ERCIM Workshop on Grids, Clouds and P2P Computing CGWS 2011

Bordeaux, August 29th, 2011

CoreGRID is a European research Network of Excellence which has developed theoretical foundations and software infrastructures for large-scale, distributed Grid and P2P applications. The network has extended its interests to include the emerging field of (service based) Cloud computing which is of great importance to the European software industry.

CoreGrid partners are investigating several service-based models from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), through Platform as a Service (PaaS) to Software as a Service (SaaS).

The Grid research community has contributed to the development of the service-oriented paradigm and constructed interoperable Grid middleware. A CoreGRID Working Group, sponsored by ERCIM, has been established to:

  • sustain the operation of the CoreGRID Network, and
  • establish a forum to foster collaboration between research communities involved in Grid, Cloud and P2P Computing.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for members of CoreGrid and the wider research community to discuss the latest developments in the world of Cloud, Grid and P2P computing.

Paper submission deadline: June 19th, 2011
