About HPDC-11

The HPDC symposium series has emerged as a leading technical conference in the growing and important field of Grid computing. This, the 11th meeting in the series, will be held for the first time outside the U.S., and for the first time in conjunction with the Global Grid Forum , the international body formed in 1998 to promote communication, best practices, and standards in Grid computing. HPDC-11/GGF-5 will together provide a global meeting place for those interested in Grid computing technologies and applications. A joint program of tutorials and keynote talks will highlight major themes and recent developments in the field.
The HPDC-11 conference (formally, the 11th IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Distributed Computing) will be a forum for presenting the latest research findings on the design and use of highly networked systems for computing, collaboration, data analysis, and other innovative tasks. Submissions are encouraged on all aspects of Grid computing, including hardware technologies, middleware, network services, and tools and languages that support application development. Case studies describing novel applications are also of interest. All papers will be rigorously reviewed by a distinguished international review committee.

About Edinburgh

See for information aboutthe Edinburgh International Convention Center.
A unique combination of heritage, colour and culture, this is a city of breathtaking beauty. The quaint corners and alleyways of the Old Town, the Georgian splendour of Charlotte Square, the dominating presence of the castle: all different, all unforgettable, all essentially Edinburgh. Edinburgh is once again home to Scotland?s parliament and excitement is in the air. Edinburgh is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with mountains, glens, lochs and wild places only a short journey away. There are more distilleries and castles than you can possibly visit, and more single malts than you can possibly drink. Archaeological sites date back about 4000 years. So plan a tour or holiday before or after the conference.
