Grid computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished
from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale
resource sharing, innovative applications, and, in some cases, high-
performance orientation. The Globus Project is leading the definition
of standard Grid protocols and APIs, in such areas as security,
resource management, data management, and information discovery. The
open source Globus Toolkit, which provides a reference implementation
of these Grid protocols and APIs, has been adopted my most of the
major Grid projects world-wide, to provide a common, robust
infrastructure for building applications that exploit distributed,
heterogeneous, Grid-enabled resources.

On January 28 - February 1, 2002, we will be presenting an in-depth
tutorial on Grid computing and the Globus Toolkit. The first day is
a standalone "Introduction to Grid Computing and the Globus Toolkit."
Starting on day two we will split into two tracks -- one for
developers (to conclude at noon on Friday), and one for systems
administrators (to conclude at noon on Thursday). This tutorial will
be structured similar to the tutorial to be conducted in Edinburgh
with the addition of various guest speaker presentations throughout
the week.

There will be ample time for questions, discussions, and breaks
throughout these tutorials. However, due to the size of the expected
audience, we do not intend for these to be a "hands-on" tutorials.
Nonetheless, we expect to have wireless network available so that
people can follow along on their laptops as desired.

Additional information, including registration details, will be placed
