*****************************************************

Grid computing has become one of the most important topics appeared and 
widely developed in the computing field in the last decade. The research
area of grid computing is making rapid progress, owing to the increasing 
necessity of computation in the resolution of complex applications.

Clusters are, in some sense, the predecessors of the grid technology. 
Clusters interconnect nodes through a local high-speed network, using 
commodity hardware, with the aim of reducing the costs of such 
infrastructures. Supercomputers have been replaced by cluster of 
workstations in a huge number of research projects, being the grid 
technology the natural evolution of clusters.

One of the major goals of grid computing is to provide efficient access 
to data. Grids provide access to distributed computing and data 
resources, allowing data-intensive applications to improve significantly 
data access, management and analysis. Nowadays, there is a huge number 
of data-intensive applications, e.g. data mining systems extracting 
knowledge from large volumes of data. Existing data-intensive 
applications have been used in several domains, such as physics, climate 
modelling, biology or visualization. Grid systems responsible for 
tackling and managing large amounts of data in geographically 
distributed environments are usually named data grids.

The great challenge of grid computing is the complete integration of 
heterogeneous computing systems and data resources with the aim of 
providing a global computing space. The achievement of this goal will 
involve revolutionary changes in the field
of computation, because it will enable resource-sharing across networks, 
being data
one of the most important ones.

This workshop is intended for researchers in grid computing, who want to 
extend their
background on this area and more specifically to those that use grid 
environments for managing and analysing data.
