CCGrid 2011 is the eleventh in a series of successful international symposia and for the first time will take place in Newport Beach, CA, USA. Grid Computing started as a generalization of Cluster Computing, promising to deliver large scale levels of parallelism to high-performance applications by crossing administrative boundaries. Moreover, the use of computational and data resources in high-performance applications, undertaken over Grid infrastructure, have started to now become a reality. Today we face the huge challenge of making on-demand access to any computational service.
CCGrid 2011 provides researchers and practitioners with an excellent opportunity to share their research and experience at the cross-roads of Cluster, Cloud and Grid Technology.
