The conference IBERGRID'2009 is being organized by the Universidad Politécnica
de Valencia (UPV) and will take place from 20 to 22 May 2009.
IBERGRID'2009 is the third edition of a series of Iberian Grid Infrastructure
Conferences initiated in 2007 under the framework of the bilateral agreement for
Science and Technology signed in November 2003 between Portugal and Spain, aiming
to leverage the construction of a common Iberian Grid Infrastructure and to foster
cooperation in the fields of grid computing and supercomputing.
The main goal of the IBERGRID'2009 conference is to constitute a forum where
the advances in the development of grid infrastructures, technologies and
applications are discussed by the main players in Iberian and Latin American
countries. This year's conference lemma is "Towards an International Grid: A
Work of Everyone", specially aiming at future plans and integration activities
in the frame of the European and International e-Science arena.
Grids are crucial for addressing many of the most challenging problems in science
and engineering and are increasingly important in business, healthcare, environment
and other applications. The 3rd IBERGRID conference is an excellent opportunity
to gather an enlarged community of academics, researchers, students, industry
specialists and practitioners in all branches of knowledge sharing a common need,
that is, powerful computing, visualization and/or storage resources. This community
will benefit from the Iberian Grid Infrastructure being implemented as it will
provide easy and secure access to a larger and more powerful set of distributed
resources. You will also have the opportunity to present demos and to watch liver
experiments on the early IBERGRID infrastructure.
