The IBERGRID'2010 organizing committee would appreciate your assistance to disseminate among your colleagues this 1st announcement of the conference event and the associated call for papers.


The organization of the IBERGRID conference in 2010 is led by the Universidade do Minho (UMinho) and will take place In Braga from Monday 24 to Thursday 27 May 2010.

A 2nd edition of an HPC Workshop will be held on Thursday 27 May. IBERGRID'2010 is the 4th edition of a series of Iberian Grid Infrastructure Conferences started in 2007 under the framework of the bilateral agreement for Science and Technology signed in November 2005 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'2010 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 the Iberian and Latin American countries. 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 4th IBERGRID conference is an excellent opportunity to gather an enlarged community of academics, researchers, students, industry experts and practitioners in all branches of knowledge, sharing a common need: powerful computing, visualization and/or storage resources. This community will benefit from the construction and consolidation of a common Iberian Grid Infrastructure as it will provide easy and secure access to a larger and more powerful set of distributed resources.

This year’s conference lemma is "Bridging the gap between European e-Science and Iberian America" aiming the promotion and consolidation of applied research in the frame of the European and Latin America e-Science arena.

You will also have the opportunity to present demos, to attend courses and to watch live experiments on the IBERGRID infrastructure.

Questions about the conference should be directed to the conference organizers at "info2010<at>ibergrid.eu"
