Title: Grids and Particle Physics: a UK perspective
Speaker: Dr Roger Jones (Lancaster)
The onset of the very large computing requirements of the LHC has happily coincided with the emergence of the Grid paradigm. The story of the application of Grid ideas has not (yet) been completed, but substantial success has already been seen. The talk will discuss the activity of the GridPP collaboration in preparing applications and hardware for particle physics Grid use, and will give the perspective of the ATLAS experiment on World Wide computing.
