Call for Participation: GlobusWORLD 2006

Cross-posted from The Grid Blog

The GlobusWORLD Community Program at GridWorld. Join the Globus Software Community and GGF18 Participants at GridWorld 2006 at the Washington Convention Center.

Whether you're a Globus expert with technical advice to share, or an executive with visions for the future of open source enterprise Grid computing, GlobusWORLD is the premier event for delivering your message to the Grid community. In 2005 hundreds of Grid professionals from research and industry attended GlobusWORLD to discuss Grid adoption issues, receive training and exchange information related to Globus Software, the open-source solution for Grid Computing. This year we join forces with IDG World Expo and GGF to present the most comprehensive event on Grid computing to date.

The GlobusWORLD program will offer a wide variety of conference sessions, mini-symposiums, panel discussions, and tutorials. Speaking opportunities range from highly technical research, development, and deployment presentations to enterprise targeted panels on commercial Grid adoption considerations. The GlobusWORLD program will run in parallel with other GridWorld program tracks and every attempt will be made in scheduling to minimize unnecessary clashes.

Submissions may be wide ranging and should be centered on the theme of Globus Software in Grid Computing applications solutions and / or technology.
