News, 02 July 2021

The 9th International Conference “Distributed Computing and Grid Technologies in Science and Education” (GRID’2021) starts in the Meshcheryakov Laboratory of Information Technologies (MLIT) on 5 July 2021 in the mixed format.

It is the ninth GRID Conference that will be dedicated to the 55th anniversary of the MLIT foundation.

The main purpose of the Conference is to discuss the current grid operation and the future role of distributed and cloud computing, HPC, Big Data, etc. in Russia and worldwide. The Conference provides a platform for discussing fresh results and establishing contacts for closer cooperation in the future.

Since the conference GRID 2004, distributed computing and grid technologies have gone far beyond the academic interest. At present, these technologies allow federated computing centres around the world to provide resources to highly distributed user communities. Modern technologies require the development of high-performance and high-throughput computing. The coverage of these activities encompasses not only various fields of natural sciences but also business and industry. Over the last years, the implemented distributed computing model has enabled the solution of a wide range of tasks, involving the processing of an enormous amount of data.

The programme of the Conference comprises plenary reports and sectional reports. The working languages of the event are English and Russian. The Conference will last until 9 July.
