The 2nd Global Research Platform (2GRP) Workshop website is open

Second Global Research Platform (2GRP) Workshop

The 2nd Global Research Platform (2GRP) Workshop website is now online. This Workshop is being held virtually, September 20-24, 2021.

The Global Research Platform (GRP) is an international scientific collaboration to create innovative advanced ubiquitous services that integrate resources around the globe at speeds of gigabits and terabits per second, especially for large-scale data-intensive science research.

The 2GRP Workshop focuses on recent and emerging advances in architectures, services, technologies, and infrastructures. Speakers explain how their innovations directly support global science research. The 2GRP program has seven themes: (a) Next-Generation Research Platforms; (b) Orchestration Among Multiple Domains; (c) Large-Scale Data Transport; (d) High-Fidelity Data Flow Monitoring, Visualization, Analytics, Diagnostics, Event Correlation, AI/ML/DL; (e) Data-Intensive Science and Programmable Networking; (f) Network and Communication Service Automation; and, (g) International Testbeds for Data-Intensive Science.

Because the 2GRP Workshop is being held virtually, it is being restructured to accommodate global time zones to ensure participation from its research communities. There are two sessions, and many of the same presentations are given in both sessions:

  • North/South America, Europe, September 20-22, 2021
  • North/South America, Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia, September 22-24, 2021

A related but separate event, the Americas’ Research Platform (AmRP) Working Group, is meeting September 24. AmRP consists of North, Central and South America GRP participants and their key international partners and has its own program, distinct from the GRP Workshop.

Program details and registration information are available on the 2GRP website:

The Global Research Platform (GRP) is an international scientific collaboration led by the International Center for Advanced Internet Research (iCAIR) at Northwestern University, the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Qualcomm Institute–Calit2 at UC San Diego, and its partners worldwide.
