The First Grid Forum Workshop (GF1 - June 1999)
The number of Grid initiatives combined with the overlap in people, technologies, and challenges of these early initiatives encouraged a number of Grid researchers and managers to convene the first “Grid Forum workshop”, which was hosted by the NASA Numerical Aerospace Simulation (NAS) and in particular the Information Power Grid (IPG) program, held at the NASA Ames Research Center from June 16-18, 1999. Organizers expected perhaps 50 people, however attendance was over 150 from some 50 organizations and 4 countries, clearly indicating great interest in the concept. There was considerable enthusiasm for the establishment of a more permanent Grid Forum. The groundwork for that body, including the initial working group organization and discussion, was laid at this workshop.

A set of overheads summarizes the goals and agenda of the meeting. Another page provides additional details on the first Grid Forum meeting, including the purpose and format and links to presentations given by representatives of various groups in attendance.
