The 3rd International Conference on Grid and Pervasive Computing will be held on May 25 ~ 28, 2008 in Kunming, China.
NewsKunming is more than 700km away from the earthquake area in Sichwan Province, it is a very safe distance. And the earthquake has no influence on the everyday life at Kunming City. If you plan to attend GPC'08, you need not worry about the safty and travel.
1. Registration will be in the Science Hall of Yunnan University on May 25, 2008.
2. Both the link of advance program and map are available.
Grid computing presents a new trend to distributed and Internet computing for coordinating large-scale heterogeneous resources sharing and problem solving in dynamic, multi-institutional virtual organizations. Grid computing cannot only be used for distributed supercomputing, massive data processing, but can also be a common platform and way for utility and service computing. Grid computing is not only referring to those using mainframes or supercomputers to coordinated working, more and more powerful personal computers even small and smart devices, ranging from personal digital assistants to unseen chips in our cars, appliances and telephones, are emerged to be the supporting force to grid computing. Projecting this trend into the future, we envision an explosion of interconnected high performance computers and smart devices that can make our research and daily lives easier and more productive.
Grid and Pervasive Computing (GPC) is an annual international conference on the emerging areas of merging grid computing and pervasive computing, aimed at providing an exciting platform and paradigm for all the time, everywhere services. This emergence is a natural outcome of the advances in cluster computing, high performance computing, utility computing, service oriented computing, peer-to-peer computing, mobile computing, sensor networks, and smart devices technologies. GPC will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers alike to present their latest research in the field of grid computing and pervasive computing.
