Ian Foster and PHGrid

Ian Foster is the director of the Computation Institute and is the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Computer Science at the Argonne National Laboratory & University of Chicago. He is also involved with both the Open Grid Forum and with the Globus Alliance as an open source strategist. In 2006, he was appointed director of the Computation Institute, a joint project between the University of Chicago, and Argonne. An earlier project, Strand, received the British Computer Society Award for technical innovation. In addition, he is on the board of the HealthGrid.US alliance.

Our team was contacted by Ian today, and we are honored by his support and look forward to globus grid discussions with him in the future.
