The Global Research Platform

The 4th Global Research Platform Workshop (4GRP) will take place October 9-10, 2023 in Limassol, Cyprus, co-located with the 19th IEEE International Conference on e-Science. 4GRP and eScience attendees share common interests, content and culture. Co-location provides 4GRP and eScience attendees with the option to register for both events.

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 Chicago, the Qualcomm Institute–Calit2 at UC San Diego, and its partners worldwide. This initiative aims to create one-of-a-kind advanced ubiquitous services that integrate resources around the globe at speeds of gigabits and terabits per second. GRP focuses on design, implementation, and operation strategies for next-generation distributed services and infrastructure to facilitate high-performance data gathering, analytics, transport, computing, and storage, at 100 Gbps or higher. GRP actively works with partners in North America, Asia, Europe, and South America to customize international fabrics and distributed cyberinfrastructure to support data-intensive scientific workflows.
