Here we index both the presentations at GGF14 and select comments during the meetings

New Communities

These were meetings of communities that are relatively new to GGF

Education and Outreach to K-12 (pre-college) community, Tribal Colleges in the USA and Africa. The successes of QuarkNet are highlighted.

Commercial Information Retrieval for Information Management and Digital Library Communities

Network-Centric Operations Community Session

Network centric operations (NCO) denote a large class of distributed applications and infrastructure for national security. This session brought together NCO industry leaders to publicly discuss goals and issues, and provide an opportunity for further collaborations in this important area.

Space-related Grid Applications

Current space-related systems involve de facto "grids" but, in fact, are "one-off" systems that are not built to any standards for interoperability, extensibility, fault tolerance, or distributed system security. This session brings together internationally recognized experts in their fields to present their work and discuss further opportunities for grids in space applications.

Semantic Grids and the Agents Community

This session discusses Grid and Agents, with a Semantic Grid presentation by David De Roure and a response from Jonathan Dale of the Agents community.
