"The next big thing will be grid computing" - John Patrick, IBM's vice-president for Internet strategies. Are you involved with Grid applications or infrastructure? If not, why not? Not sure what Grid is? Think it isn't relevant to you or you aren't relevant to it? Think its just high performance computing for high energy physicists? Think that it's a semantic-free or data-free zone? Think it isn't important? In this talk I'll give an introduction to the state of play of Grid today and the applications using it. I'll give a summary of its evolution, paying particular attention to three significant initiatives that impact the OTM community: the emergence of the Open Grid Service Architecture, the prominence of Data/Information Grids and the appearance of Semantic Grids. I'll give a few examples of early Semantic Grid projects, and show why distributed information and knowledge management are keyenablers of Grid Services and their applications. The Grid is a terrific use case for the research described in this conference. Moreover, I do not believe that the Grid vision cannot be achieved without knowing about and using your past experiences, current technologies and future research. If this community and the Grid community fail to communicate we will all be the poorer for it. However, although inter-community technology exchange and inter-disciplinary research can generate inspirational innovations, it doesn't just happen. It takes work and it takes people prepared to reach out and engage. In this talk I hope to inform you, interest you and may be even enlist you to the cause. ... © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2003.
