First Announcement


The 6th International Conference "Distributed Computing and Grid-technologies in Science and Education"

30 June – 5 July, 2014
Dubna, Russia

The International Conference "Distributed Computing and Grid-technologies in Science and Education" will be held at the Laboratory of Information Technologies (LIT) of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) on 30 June - 5 July 2014.
The forthcoming conference will be the sixth one organized by the JINR Laboratory of Information Technologies starting from 2004. Since then, distributed computing and Grid-technologies have gone far beyond the academic interest. At present, those technologies allow federated computing centers around the world to provide resources to higly distributed user communities. Modern technologies require development of high-performance and high-throughput computing. The coverage of those activities encompasses not only various areas of natural sciences but also business and industry. Over the last years, the implemented distributed computing model enabled the solution of a wide class of tasks, involving the processing of an enormous amount of data.
The previous conference ( was attended by more than 250 participants. Over 100 reports were presented. A special section was devoted to the emerging direction of cloud computing. The reports in the field of distributed computing and Grid were presented by conference participants from Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Uzbekistan, Ukraine. Contributions covered state-of-the-art technologies and activities. 
The Conference Proceedings are available both as hard copies and on-line ("Distributed Computing and Grid-technologies in Science and Education", Dubna, JINR, 2012. 419 p. ISBN 978-5-9530-0345-2,

The main purpose of the Conference is to discuss the current Grid operation and the future role of the Grid in Russia and worldwide as well as similar technologies for data-intensive computations: cloud computing, BigData etc. The Conference provides a platform for discussing fresh results and for establishing contacts for closer cooperation in future.

Conference Topics:

  1. Technologies, architectures, models, methods and experiences of building distributed computing systems. Consolidation and integration of distributed resources.
  2. Technologies, methods and tools for operation, monitoring and information protection in distributed computing systems.
  3. Technology for storaging, searching and processing of Big Data.
  4. Algorithms and methods of application tasks solving in distributed computing environments.
  5. Scientific, industry and business applications in distributed computing systems.
  6. Distributed computing in education as well as aspects of staff training.
  7. Desktop grid technologies and volunteer computing
  8. Оptimization problems and distributed computing
Programme of the Conference includes plenary reports in English (30 min), sectional reports (15 min) and poster presentations (in English or Russian).

The GRID2014 will also include some co-located events announced later.
