The growing popularity of the Internet along with the availability of powerful computers and high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components is changing the way we do computing. This technology opportunity enables the clustering of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources such as supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and special classes of devices, and allows them to be used as a single unified resource and thus forms what is popularly known as “computational grids”.  The computational grid is analogous to power (electricity) grid and aims to couple geographically distributed resources and offer consistent and inexpensive access to resources irrespective of their physical location or access point.

GRID2000 is an international meeting that brings together international grid computing researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim of GRID2000 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.


GRID2000 will emphasize both the design, analysis, implementation, and deployment of grid computing environments and applications as well as their use in scientific, engineering, and commercial settings.  The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

GRID 2000 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research in all areas of Grid Computing including design and analysis of computational grids or metacomputers and their applications in science, technology, and commercial areas.

The paper should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages of text using 10 point size type on A4 pages. Electronic submission by email is strongly encouraged. Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer using A4 size paper. To facilitate processing, each submission should also enclose the following information in ASCII format: paper title, author name, abstract, up to five keywords, as well as the contacting information of the responsible author (postal address, e-mail address, phone/fax numbers). The results presented in the paper must be original. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. Please send full paper for consideration to any one of the Workshop Co-Chairs. The hard copy submissions can be mailed, however, electronic submission is strongly encouraged.

GRID 2000  also encourages the submission of outstanding "work-in-progress" type research note, however, the size of such papers is restricted to 5 pages. If the "reserach note" is rich in technical contents, we can relax this restriction.


All papers selected for this workshop by peer-review process will be published as a separate proceeding (titled as "Grid Computing") through the Springer Verlag (LNCS series), Germany.
