GGF5 – The Fifth Global Grid Forum
July 21 - 24, 2002
Edinburgh, Scotland

The meeting gathered ~850 pre-registered participants to ~23 talks in plenary session, 16 BOFs, 20 research group sessions, 23 working group sessions and ~10, 519 meetings in the hallways, hotels, castles and bars. GGF5 was held in conjunction with IEEE's HPDC-11 (24-26 July) at the Edinburgh International Conference Center (EICC) in Edinburgh, Scotland.
