ISGC 2012 registration opens now

The International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2012 will be held at Academia Sinica in Taipei, from 26 February to 2 March 2012, with co-located events and workshops. The conference is hosted by the Academia Sinica Grid Computing Centre (ASGC), Taipei, Taiwan. To enjoy the early bird discount rate, you can register before 13 January, 2012.

"Convergence, Collaboration, Innovation" is the theme of ISGC 2012. The last decade has seen the wide-scale emergence of e-Infrastructure as a critical asset for the modern e-Scientist. The emergence of large-scale research infrastructures and instruments that has produced a torrent of electronic data is forcing a generational change in the scientific process and the mechanisms used to analyse the resulting data deluge.

No longer can the processing of these vast amounts of data and production of relevant scientific results be undertaken by a single scientist. Virtual Research Communities that span organisations around the world, through an integrated digital infrastructure that connects the trust and administrative domains of multiple resource providers, have become critical in supporting these analyses.

ISGC 2012 will be the 10th meeting, that over the last decade has tracked the convergence, collaboration and innovation of individual researchers across the Asia Pacific region to a coherent community and as a result has helped drive the growth of regional e-Science activities and its collaborations around the world.

For more symposium information and detailed topic description, you can visit the conference website at http://event.twgrid.org/isgc2012/index.html

Disclaimer Disclaimer

The International Desktop Grid Federation (IDGF) is set up to be long-lived.

At present, the IDGF organisation is working hard to getting into shape the permanent framework for the organisation structure.

In future IDGF will have paid membership fee for some categories and paid services because IDGF aims to attract active members that really benefit from the services.

IDGF will advise all existing members in advance when shifting from free to paid membership.
