Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly

PRAGMA Meetings

PRAGMA has been founded as an open organization in which Pacific Rim institutions will collaborate more formally to develop grid-enabled applications and will deploy the needed infrastructure throughout the Pacific Region to allow data, computing, and other resource sharing. Based on current collaborations, PRAGMA will enhance these collaborations and connections among individual investigators by promoting visiting scholars' and engineers' programs, building new collaborations, formalizing resource-sharing agreements, and continuing trans-Pacific network deployment. PRAGMA provides an opportunity for member institutions to work together to address applications and infrastructure research of common interest.

This website  is a unique collaboration among webmasters from four different countries, to include Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the U.S.

A series of workshops has been inaugurated with the first being held in March, 2002 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California at San Diego.  Attendees were warmly welcomed to Seoul, Korea for the 2nd workshop, held at the Westin Chosun Hotel on July 10-11, 2002, and hosted  by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI).  Subsequent meetings are currently scheduled to be held in January 2003 (Japan), June 2003 (Australia) and October 2003 (Taiwan).
