ESA GRID Workshop

25th October, 2002

Conference Room Copernicus
ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands

The objective of this Workshop was to present space-related GRID activities that have been initiated in recent years, with a view of consolidating a policy that will be followed by ESA in the coming years. The Workshop brought together technical experts dealing with various aspects of GRID (i.e. infrastructure, middleware and applications) to explain to potential users within the Agency and those associated with its programmes, the evolution and benefits of GRID technology.

The Programme contains links to all the given Presentations.
