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.
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.
