iGrid 2005

iGrid 2005, the 4th community-driven biennial International Grid event, was held at Calit2 on the University of California San Diego campus 26-30 September 2005. It was a coordinated effort to accelerate the use of multi-10 Gbps international and national networks, to advance scientific research, and to educate decision makers, academicians and industry researchers on the benefits of these hybrid networks.

iGrid 2005 showcased 49 real-time application demonstrations from 20 countries, along with a symposium of 25 lectures, panels and master classes on the applications, middleware, and underlying cyberinfrastructure. At its core, this cyberinfrastructure has new architectural approaches to next-generation Internet design and development using optical networking.
