Global Computing Semimar at SICS

SICS, the Swedish Institute of Computer Science is holding a seminar where different experts from the fields of Peer-2-Peer computing, Grid computing and SOA will share their views how these three pieces of technology are coming together. From the announcement:

The vision of service-oriented computing is embraced in the fields of Grid computing, Peer-to-Peer computing and Service Oriented Architectures. Until now, each research community has focused on different aspects, but we argue that these research fields have complementary strengths and will develop in a common direction, eventually eliminating the distinctions between them. This new environment will combine elements of resource management and coordination from Grid, inter-operability from Service Oriented Architectures, and self-organization and scalability aspects from Peer-to-Peer overlay networks.
