IST Call 5 Preparatory Workshop on "Advanced Grid Technologies, Systems & Services"

Date : 31 January - 1 February 2005
Location : Hotel Carrefour de l'Europe , Grasmarkt 110, B-1000 Brussels

Information and Overview

The EU Grid Technologies Call 5 Preparatory Workshop took place on January 31st - February 1st, 2005 in Brussels.

The next major IST-FP6 'milestone' for Grid research comes in May 2005 when the European Commission will open the second call for proposals relating to Grid RTD activities (IST-FP6 5th Call, Work Programme 2005-2006). This call, which it is planned to close in September 2005, provides a timely opportunity to submit proposals for the consolidation of research in topics already present in Work Programme 2003-2004 as well as to start research on new topics. It is also the opportunity to enlarge the constituency, to identify and anticipate potential links (complementarity, synergies, overlaps etc.) between Grid technologies and related technologies and to increase industrial participation and broader take-up of grid research results.

The workshop has been attended by more than 200 delegates. All sessions have seen an active participation of the attendees and some interesting conclusions have been drawn. Keynotes and invited speakers presentations, as well as the conclusions of each session, are available following the links from the relevant session.
