The growing popularity of the Internet along with the availability of powerful computers and high-speed networks as low-cost commodity components are changing the way we do computing. These new technologies enable the clustering of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources, such as supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and special devices, that can then be used as a unified resource and thus form what are popularly known as "Computational Grids". A Grid is analogous to the electrical power grid and aims to couple distributed resources and offer consistent and inexpensive access to resources irrespective of their physical location. 

GRID 2001 is an international meeting that brings together the Grid community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The first meeting, GRID 2000, was held in conjunction with HiPC 2000, in Bangalore, India, and attracted participants from fifteen countries. The objective of GRID 2001 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
  • Grid Middleware and Toolkits
  • Internet-based Computing Models
  • Grid Architectures and Fabrics
  • Grid Information Services
  • Grid Object Metadata and Schemas
  • Resource Management and Scheduling
  • Advance Resource Reservation and Scheduling
  • Remote Data Access and Management
  • Grid Management and Organization Tools
  • Performance Evaluation and Modeling
  • Cluster/Grid Integration Issues
  • Grid Security Issues
  • Grid Applications
  • Computational Economy
  • Scientific, and Industrial and Social Implications
      Important Dates:
      May 18, 2001: Paper Submission
      June 30, 2001: Acceptance Notification 
      Aug.  1, 2001: Camera-Ready Copy 
      Nov. 12, 2001: Workshop
Please use the online Grid 2001 Paper Registration Form.

GRID 2001 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work.  The paper should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages of text using 10 point size type on A4 paper.  GRID 2001 also encourages the submission of outstanding "work-in-progress" papers that are limited to 5 pages.  Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer.  Electronic submission through this website is strongly encouraged.  Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

All papers selected for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will be published as a separate proceeding (titled "Grid Computing") through Springer Verlag Press (LNCS series), Germany.
